New Medical Technology is Changing the Face of Wrinkle Treatment
Date:5/5/2008

SAN ANTONIO, May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- With nearly 10 million minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures conducted in 2007, today's population is in search of alternatives to treat their wrinkles without having to go under the knife.

For over the past 15 years, doctors used traditional CO2 lasers to change the surface and appearance of the skin. However, these lasers are riddled with problems including permanent loss of pigment, scarring, prolonged redness and healing and a potential for an unnatural waxy appearance.

Now, there is a new medical technology which treats lines and wrinkles in one session without all of the hassles associated with traditional CO2 lasers. It's called the "Fraxel re:pair" which is the latest advancement in CO2 lasers.

"With a traditional CO2 laser, a laser beam treats 100% of the skin," reports Dr. Kimberly Finder, Director and Founder of The Face Place in San Antonio. "The new Fraxel re:pair is revolutionary in that microscopic beams hit only a portion of the skin which creates columns of laser treated skin surrounded by normal skin. This advancement will take aged and weathered skin and create a rejuvenated look."

"This new device promotes stimulation of collagen. Thus, individuals continue to see improvement, even weeks after treatment," said Finder.

In addition to treating wrinkles, the Fraxel re:pair will tighten the skin on the face and neck. Many women apply sunscreen on their face but neglect to utilize sunscreen on their neck. As a result, these women have necks that look ten years older than their face. Other uses include treating sun damaged and dark pigmented skin and eliminating acne scars. With over 20 million Americans who have acne badly enough that it causes scars, acne sufferers will no longer have to endure the embarrassment of the unsightly appearance that their acne leaves behind.

Kimberly Finder, M.D., a board certified dermatologist, is one of the first in San Antonio to acquire the Fraxel re:pair after Reliant Technologies, maker of the Fraxel laser, made this new technology available at the recent American Dermatology Association meeting this spring.

Dr. Finder has extensive media experience and has appeared as a guest on various programs. For more information or to request an interview with Dr. Kimberly Finder, please contact Theresa Castro, MD Publicity, LLC, at (210) 408-9095 or e-mail Theresa@MDPublicity.com.
