Plastic Surgeon in Virginia Upgrades Laser Skin Resurfacing Technology

December 17, 2013 - Roanoke, VA

For patients seeking non-surgical facial skin rejuvenation, Virginia plastic surgeon Enrique Silberblatt, MD may be able to provide an effective solution. Aesthetic Surgery of Virginia, Dr. Silberblatt's private practice, has recently acquired Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 technology for laser skin resurfacing treatments. This upgrade from the practice's previous Fraxel® 1927 laser is designed with two separate frequencies to singularly or dually treat various signs of aging and sun damage in a more effective and efficient manner.

As revealed in Dr. Silberblatt's blog post titled "Benefits of Laser Skin Resurfacing," the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser skin resurfacing treatment can offer several benefits to patients interested in nonsurgical skin rejuvenation. Some key advantages highlighted in the blog entry include:

  • Effective treatment of brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, melasma, and scarring
  • Improvement of skin tone and texture
  • Reduction of pore sizes
  • Possibility for fewer treatment sessions
  • Single or dual laser treatment capabilities
  • Potential for relatively quick results

In regard to the differences between the two laser frequencies, Dr. Silberblatt's website explains that the 1550 nm wavelength is often the preferred option for diminishing scars, as well as finer lines and wrinkles. Conversely, the 1927 nm wavelength can be particularly beneficial for the removal of brown spots, melasma, and other sun-related skin damage. No matter the Fraxel® laser frequency utilized during treatment, a topical numbing agent designed with a high concentration of local anesthesia will be applied to the treatment area to help decrease and even prevent any potential discomfort.

Ultimately, Dr. Silberblatt and his team of Master Aestheticians consider laser skin resurfacing with Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 technology to be an excellent nonsurgical option that can "help [patients] achieve a younger, more healthy look for [their] skin without the risks and downtime associated with other rejuvenation procedures."
