Fraxel® Laser Skin Rejuvenation

Published on July 3, 2013 by

Offering professional skin care and plastic surgery in Dallas, Dr. Steve Byrd carefully examines the science and medicine behind every treatment he performs and has found that the Fraxel® laser provides his patients with proven and often dramatic results.

Dallas, Texas (March 2009) – Dr. Steve Byrd, a Dallas plastic surgeon, is pleased to offer his patients a nonsurgical solution for wrinkles, skin discoloration, and other blemishes: the Fraxel® laser resurfacing system. The Fraxel device allows Dr. Byrd to carefully control depth as well as density of treatment for his patients, creating skin renewal from within and actually encouraging the body to produce new collagen.

Fraxel technology distributes laser energy over the entire skin’s surface through multiple, small points of entry. This significant improvement in laser technology avoids the complete removal of the surface layers of skin and instead encourages skin renewal from within the skin’s deeper tissue layers. At Dr. Byrd’s practice, the Fraxel line now has 2 distinct laser treatments: re:store™ and re:pair™. Each treatment gives patients a way to make it much easier to customize a program that is tailored to their unique needs.

“Re:store treatments usually require a series of appointments,” says Dr. Byrd from his plastic surgery practice in Dallas. “It has been shown to be an effective treatment designed to remove in stages some of the remnants of aging’s calling cards – wrinkles, uneven skin tone and pigmented lesions. There is minimal downtime associated with the procedure and it has years of proven results.”

The new re:pair laser maximizes healing time while minimizing downtime, yet still provides correction of wrinkles, skin discolorations and skin surface irregularities. The new technology also allows for the neck and upper chest to be treated as well.

“Re:pair is a one-time treatment requiring some form of anesthesia at Dallas Day Surgery Center,” says Dr. Byrd, referring to the Dallas plastic surgery center he oversees that is located on the same floor as his office. “Instead of the multiple, short recovery periods patients can expect with re:store treatments, five to seven days of at-home recovery is all that’s needed following treatment with Fraxel re:pair. After that, a patient can return to normal, using a bit of makeup to cover up any residual redness or discoloration.”

Re:pair laser treatment is appropriate for all ages and can be used very effectively on a variety of skin problems. Dr. Byrd expects the new treatment to become a vital part of the treatment packages his patients choose to remain refreshed and battle common skin problems.

“Facial cosmetic surgery in Dallas continues to be the most appropriate choice for many people looking to refresh their appearance,” adds Dr. Byrd. “But Fraxel can postpone a full facelift or brow lift by addressing the wrinkles when they first start appearing around the eyes, lips, forehead, and neck. This treatment can show remarkable improvement in the upper chest as well.”
