Susan Van Dyke, M.D., Lectures in Asia on the Cross-Cultural Laser and Skin Tightening Treatment, ThermaFrax


International Physicians Learn About Combining Two Proven Cosmetic Treatments, Thermage and Fraxel, to Produce Enhanced Results on Patients.

Susan Van Dyke, M.D., a world-renowned, board certified dermatologist recognized as an expert in cosmetic skin care, recently returned from lecturing internationally, in Japan and Taiwan, on the effectiveness of combining Thermage skin tightening procedure with Fraxel laser treatment known as ThermaFrax to enhance the outcome of skin treatments.

Dr. Van Dyke was distinctly selected to present to her physician peers on ThermaFrax because of her significant experience with Thermage and her enhanced knowledge of laser resurfacing.

Dr. Van Dyke's lecture series, which is documented on www.SkinEnvyMD.com, was presented to over 100 elite dermatologist and plastic surgeons specializing in cosmetic procedures.

"Lending my expertise in administering the two treatments, Thermage and Fraxel, was such an honor," states Dr. Van Dyke.

"It was a two-way learning experience. Not only was I able to demonstrate how Thermage and Fraxel are safe and effective on most all skin-types, I am now able to better serve my patients whose cultural backgrounds stem from Asia having learned how skincare habits and views, in general, are different than in the United States."

Thermage is the premier non-invasive procedure available that tightens and renews the skin's collagen in one treatment. It is especially popular for eye treatments on Asian women.

Fraxel laser treatment reduces the appearance of:

  • Age Spots
  • Sun Damage
  • Fine Lines
  • Melasma
  • Stretch Marks
  • Acne Scars
  • Surgical Scars

It is a safe treatment for all skin types thanks to its advanced "fractional photothermolysis" technology.

The ThermaFrax treatment tightens the skin while simultaneously stimulating the production of younger, smoother, healthier skin to replace damaged tissue.

Dr. Van Dyke will offer an informal, educational seminar on the latest information about Thermage, Fraxel and other cosmetic procedures to help Valley residents determine their ideal treatment plan during Van Dyke Laser & Skin's Pre-Summer Open House on May 9th at 10:00 a.m. at 5206 North Scottsdale Road, Paradise Valley.

Attendees will receive a 10 percent discount and those who bring a friend will receive a 20 percent discount on all cosmetic services and products from Dr. Van Dyke the day of the event services will be scheduled at the patient's convenience after the event.

For information about Dr. Van Dyke's research on ThermaFrax for stretch marks now recruiting study participants or the event, please call 480-948-5045.
