The advanced skill of a surgeon meets the eye of an artist when Dr. Eugenie Brunner uses the best science has to offer for facial rejuvenation.
Dr. Brunner is seeing “amazing” results from the Fraxel RepairTM fractionated CO2 laser. It’s her number one laser procedure because it provides consistent results with a very predictable post-procedure recovery course.
“I thought this would be a great addition to round out my offerings and get rid of wrinkles,” she said. “But it quickly became the go-to procedure year-round to take care of wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scarring, as well as pre- and post-face lifts.”
Fraxel is a pain-free, non-surgical procedure done right in the office with no anesthesia necessary. Just as important, there’s only a seven-day recovery period. There’s obvious healing going on through around day four, but by day seven, patients return to normal out-of-home activities with just a little pinkness.
“This is a quicker recovery time than most other procedures,” Dr. Brunner added. “Many patient schedule on a Friday, and then return to work the end of the following week.”
Dr. Brunner offers a full range of facial plastic surgery and facial rejuvenation services. She notes patients interested in getting rid of jowls or a wattle are good candidates for a face lift. But if a more vibrant look is required, she often turns to the Fraxel.
“There’s nothing better to remove that crepe-like look on the neck or to remove sun damage or wrinkles around the eyes and mouth,” she says. She recommends that her patients have the treatment either two months before or after a face lift, and in conjunction with injectable fillers.
“Fraxel tightens the skin and softens wrinkles so you see more results with injectibles,” she noted. “Also, Fraxel gets into the deeper layers of the dermis and stimulates collagen building, so the results last for several years.”
Several years, of course, if one takes care of the skin. Dr. Brunner reminds patients to take good care of their rejuvenated skin, including smart sun protection and quitting smoking.
“Machines come and go, but the Fraxel is a real workhorse,” she said. “There’s a huge call for these services.”
