THE LASER CENTER AT CONTOUR DERMATOLOGY UNVEILS NEW FRAXEL LASER TREATMENT
Advanced technology delivers safe, gentle and non-invasive skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime
Timothy Jochen, MD, founder and medical director of The Laser Center at Contour Dermatology, announces that his practice has acquired the Fraxel Laser, an advanced laser for skin rejuvenation that provides a gentle and intelligent treatment approach for fast, reliable results with minimal downtime and maximum safety.
Contour is among the first medical offices in the desert to offer Fraxel Laser Treatment (FLT), the latest beauty breakthrough for restoring aging and sun-damaged skin. Unlike traditional laser devices, Fraxel-brand systems treat only a fraction of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding area intact for fast healing. Fraxel lasers have received multiple FDA clearances and have been found safe and effective in treating all skin types and all areas of the face and body.
"I generally take a wait-and-see approach when it comes to new technologies, to ensure that something touted as a breakthrough really delivers results for my patients," says Dr. Jochen of his decision to acquire the Fraxel Laser. "Fraxel is the only laser device specially designed to resurface a fraction of skin at a time without breaking the skin's protective outer barrier. It offers immediate results - softer, smoother and toned skin, with cumulative improvement that creates a healthy, vibrant and youthful appearance in as few as four to eight weeks. I felt it was worth it to invest in this fractional laser resurfacing technology because it works, safely and effectively."
The Fraxel Laser is produced by Reliant Technologies, Inc. of Mountain View, CA, which develops clinical solutions to repair and rejuvenate aging and environmentally damaged skin. The company pioneered the development of fractional laser resurfacing.
The Laser Center at Contour Dermatology is located at 555 E. Tachevah Drive, Suite 2E-106, Palm Springs, CA. Dr. Jochen, who is on the medical staff of Desert Regional Hospital and Eisenhower Medical Center, also has offices in Rancho Mirage at 35280 Bob Hope Drive, Suite 104. A Diplomate of the American Board of Dermatology, Dr. Jochen specializes in cosmetic surgery as well as general and surgical dermatology, including Mohs Micrographic Surgery. The Laser Center at Contour Dermatology offers complimentary cosmetic consultations. For more information, call (760) 416-6971.
