The skin changes that occur with age are a direct result of our history of sun exposure as well as hormonal and genetic factors. The UV radiation which the skin is exposed to damages the collagen and elastic fibers that give the skin its youthful appearance and leaves residual skin pigmentation typically called age spots or “sunspots”. Recent technology has provided a safe and effective antidote to the combination of factors that produce wrinkled, dry, and tired looking skin as part of the aging process.


Dr. Forley uses the new Fraxel® re:store Dual laser in his practice for skin rejuvenation. This innovative approach to non-ablative laser technology uses two wavelengths to deliver energy in “fractional” zones of heating with every microscopic treatment zone surrounded by unaffected skin. This results in rapid initial healing with short-term redness and swelling over the first several days. There is no visible wound healing, as the outer skin layer remains intact, but some dryness and flaking will occur during the first week. The new, more superficial Thulium fiber wavelength directly targets pigmentation with minimal discomfort in one or two treatment sessions. In addition, the deep penetrating Erbium fiber can be used in the new system for the treatment of wrinkles, enlarged pores, and acne scars. The Dual treatment regimen utilizes both wavelengths to target wrinkles, improve

skin texture, and reduce melasma and dark pigment spots. The treatment regimen consists of three to five sessions spaced at one month intervals or longer, with beneficial changes continuing to occur for several months after each treatment. The Fraxel® re:store Dual laser can be safely used to treat the face, neck, chest, and hands. Acne scars, scars from previous surgery, as well as burns can also be effectively treated with this technology.

The Fraxel® re:pair laser is a fractional carbon dioxide (CO2) laser that provides a deeper dermal remodeling of the skin in one or two treatment sessions. Treatment of more severe wrinkles is possible with less risk and recovery time than traditional CO2 lasers. The downtime needed for healing is approximately five days with redness lasting for several weeks depending on the treatment level.

Both procedures are performed using topical anesthetic cream or injections to numb the skin. Additional sedation may be desired for treatment with the Fraxel® re:pair laser.


Erbium:Yag laser resurfacing is a procedure usually performed for the purpose of improving both fine lines and deeper wrinkles frequently with one treatment. An intense beam of light vaporizes skin across the entire surface area of the site that is being treated in a very precise manner. Although this is a very effective procedure, especially for deeper wrinkles, it entails a more prolonged healing phase than with the Fraxel technology. The skin heals within one week and requires daily wound care. Redness may persist for about 4-6 weeks depending on the intensity of the treatment. Specific areas of the face such as the crow's feet around the eyes, the forehead, the wrinkles around the mouth, or the entire face can be targeted with the Erbium laser.
