Local Doctor Introduces New Laser Treatment for Acne Scarring, Stretch Marks, Aging and Sun-Damaged Skin

Breakthrough Fraxel® Laser Treatment Resurfaces and Repairs Wrinkles and Age Spots -- Pixel by Pixel, Spot by Spot

PITTSBURGH, PA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 27, 2006 -- Dr. Terrance R. Krysinski of Cosmetic Laser Centers in Warrendale and Robinson is one of the first physicians in the Pittsburgh area to offer a new aesthetic solution to turn back the clock on aging and sun-damaged skin that provides the benefits of traditional skin resurfacing techniques without significant downtime and risks. This newest generation of non-invasive laser technology called Fraxel® Laser Treatment (FLT) resurfaces acne scarring, photodamaged skin, periorbital (around the eyes) wrinkles and improves pigmented lesions such as melasma, age spots and sun spots on the face, neck, chest and hands.

Krysinski reports that the Fraxel laser is specially designed to create thousands of microscopic thermal spots that form vertical columns of treated skin tissue that are separated and surrounded by unaffected, healthy skin. This innovative approach allows the doctor to treat only a small fraction of skin at a time so it heals much faster than if the entire area were treated at once. Moreover, and in contrast to non-ablative laser/light therapies, Fraxel Laser Treatment creates new epidermal skin in the treatment zones within 24 hours.

"Fraxel Laser Treatment represents new-generation laser resurfacing with predictable results. It rebuilds damaged skin like digital modification -- pixel by pixel, spot by spot," says Dr. Krysinski. "Think of your skin as a family portrait or a digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or touch-up. A painting is delicately restored one small area at a time, or a photo is digitally altered, pixel by pixel. That's the scientific principle behind Fraxel Laser Treatment."

Safe and effective, the Fraxel laser is cleared by the FDA and has undergone extensive testing in the lab and out in the field. Dr. Krysinski says that based on his clinical experience, an effective treatment regime generally requires 3 to 5 treatment sessions spaced about 4 weeks apart.

"In our practice, we have observed nice improvements in uneven skin color and wrinkles around the eye area. The treated skin is smooth, soft and fresh. In fact, our patients are so thrilled with how young and attractive they look that their friends and family members are requesting Fraxel treatment, especially when compared to other abrasive treatments that are associated with far more significant side effects," notes Dr. Krysinski. Other areas where Fraxel treatments have excelled are in acne scarring and stretch marks. Krysinski reports such high levels of patient satisfaction in these two areas that "Fraxel treatments have virtually replaced older, less effective therapies for acne scarring and stretch marks and have become our first choice in this practice."

Other key advantages of Fraxel Laser Treatment (FLT) are:

--  No scalpel, no stitches, no needles
--  No general anesthesia -- FLT is well tolerated with a topical
    anesthetic
--  Convenience -- the procedure takes about 30 minutes in the doctor's
    office
--  High safety and proven effectiveness on neck, chest and hands
--  Minimal risk of complications or adverse events
--  Natural, youthful-looking results
    
Fraxel Laser Treatment has been featured on "The View," "The Today Show," many local newscasts, as well as Prevention Magazine, Vogue and various other print media.
