Las Vegas Plastic Surgeons Adopt New Nonsurgical Skin Renewal Technology

W. Tracy Hankins, MD and Samuel Sohn, MD Have Added the Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 Laser to Their Skin Rejuvenation Offerings, Providing Patients With Younger Looking Skin While Keeping Recovery Time to a Minimum

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwired - Jun 17, 2014) - Dr. W. Tracy Hankins and Dr. Samuel Sohn, board-certified plastic surgeons in Las Vegas, take pride in the high-quality, natural looking results they achieve while prioritizing the safety of their patients. In order to remain at the top of their field and help ensure patient satisfaction, the two plastic surgeons are committed to staying up-to-date with the latest technology and techniques. Recently, Hankins & Sohn Plastic Surgery Associates acquired the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser, an innovative technology designed to employ two laser wavelengths simultaneously or separately, depending on the specific needs of the patient.

Drs. Hankins and Sohn recently authored a pair of blog posts on this new laser technology, informing their Las Vegas plastic surgery patients of the benefits of Fraxel® laser treatment, as well as details about the procedure. "Until recently, laser skin rejuvenation has relied on two methods of treatment," the first blog post states. "One [technique] using ablative lasers and one using non-ablative lasers." The Fraxel® laser is unique because it delivers results similar to an ablative laser without the downtime and recovery typically associated with such treatments. The first blog post -- titled, "Seeking Effective Nonsurgical Skin Renewal?" -- goes on to detail the results patients can expect from Fraxel® laser treatment, including improved skin tone, improved texture, and reduction in the appearance of brown spots, wrinkles, and scars.

In a follow-up blog post titled, "How To Erase Acne Scars, Photodamage, And More," Drs. Hankins and Sohn highlight the Fraxel® laser treatment's ability to "address mild to moderate photodamage/pigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and a variety of other skin texture irregularities." The number of treatment sessions needed for repair depends on the specific skin conditions the patient wishes to address. In three to five treatments, most patients can resolve issues pertaining to tone, texture, and wrinkles. However, the Las Vegas plastic surgeons also note that "acne scars and melasma commonly require additional treatments to fully rejuvenate the skin."

Ultimately, the two plastic surgeons say the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser can yield unprecedented results, and they are excited to offer their patients such an effective and efficient laser skin rejuvenation option.
