Franklin, TN (PRWEB) August 9, 2008 -- Dr. John R. Moore, MD, of Cool Springs Plastic Surgery, has recently obtained the Fraxel re:store? laser. This nonablative fractional resurfacing treatment is useful in the treatment of acne scars and surgical scars, sun spots and age spots, brown spots (melasma), and wrinkles around the eyes, neck, and hands. The Fraxel re:store laser delivers remarkable results, minimal patient downtime, clinical flexibility and ease of use. "We chose the laser after seeing results in patients for more than two years without any significant adverse effects or disruption to their schedule," Dr. Moore says.
Fraxel treatment results have been featured on "The Today Show," where it was introduced as a "Mini Medical Miracle." This laser is the preemptive strike against face-lifts for women ages 40-50. Other media outlets which have featured the Fraxel re:store laser include "The View," Self, In Style, Marie Claire and O, The Oprah Magazine.
Side effects include some redness and swelling. The duration and intensity depend on the particular treatment and the patient's healing ability. Other temporary side effects include itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking and a bronzed skin appearance.
