KATY, TX – If anyone needs a sip from the fountain of youth, but can’t seem to find it, here is something that could help.

Dr. Sherry Ingraham, of Advanced Dermatology says, “Even a few weeks after a first treatment your skin is going to appear smoother and clearer.”

So, what are we talking about, the Fraxel Laser treatment.

“Little micro arrays of laser beams are actually sent into the skin, which allow for surrounding skin to not be affected by the laser.”

Which does what?

“Which stimulate new collagen to come in and form, and when new collagen form you get contraction, so the skin will smooth, wrinkles will smooth, also, a certain wavelength involved in this laser treats brown pigmentation and sun damage.”

There is an advantage to Fraxel Laser over traditional laser treatments.

“It allows people who work, and people who want to go to parties an opportunity to get some resurfacing done without having to check out of their lives for two weeks like you used to have to with ablative laser.”

Unlike other treatments, this allows for treatment of the neck, chest, arms and hands.

OK, so it isn’t cheap. Expect to pay anywhere from a $1000 to $1200 for a face treatment, but it’s cheaper than the alternative, unless of course you choose to do nothing at all.
