SAN ANTONIO, May 5 With nearly 10 millionminimally-invasive cosmetic procedures conducted in 2007, today's populationis in search of alternatives to treat their wrinkles without having to gounder the knife.

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

Now, there is a new medical technology which treats lines and wrinkles inone session without all of the hassles associated with traditional CO2 lasers.It's called the "Fraxel re:pair" which is the latest advancement in CO2lasers.

"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 SanAntonio. "The new Fraxel re:pair is revolutionary in that microscopic beamshit only a portion of the skin which creates columns of laser treated skinsurrounded by normal skin. This advancement will take aged and weathered skinand create a rejuvenated look."

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

In addition to treating wrinkles, the Fraxel re:pair will tighten the skinon the face and neck. Many women apply sunscreen on their face but neglect toutilize sunscreen on their neck. As a result, these women have necks thatlook ten years older than their face. Other uses include treating sun damagedand dark pigmented skin and eliminating acne scars. With over 20 millionAmericans who have acne badly enough that it causes scars, acne sufferers willno longer have to endure the embarrassment of the unsightly appearance thattheir acne leaves behind.

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

Dr. Finder has extensive media experience and has appeared as a guest onvarious 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 [email protected]
