The Fraxel® 1500 for Laser Skin Rejuvenation
The Fraxel 1500 offers the latest in fractional resurfacing technology. Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates, SC is the only group in the Joliet and Frankfort areas to have the device. Unlike older laser resurfacing technology which resulted in longer periods of healing, wound care, and downtime, fractional resurfacing yields excellent treatment of fine wrinkles, age spots and sun damage, melasma (areas of darker skin), and acne scarring without the need for special dressings, creams, or downtime. For more information on the Fraxel 1500 and before and after photographs, visit www.fraxel.com.
Laser Vein Treatment
We also have 532nm- KTP lasers which are specifically designed to target blood vessels. Many patients seek treatment for small blood vessels by their noses and cheeks, while others look to reduce or eliminate spider veins on their legs. Patients with rosacea or background redness also benefit from this laser.
After evaluation of your skin, your doctor can formulate an individualized plan to give you the healthiest appearing skin possible. Schedule an appointment at Dermatology & Plastic Surgery Associates, SC to find out more by calling (815) 744-8554.
