The segment profiles four women who had various skin rejuvenation treatments, including Thermage for body and facial skin tightening and Fraxel laser treatment for skin tone improvement. New York City dermatologist Dr. Anne Chapas also discussed the benefits of Thermage and Fraxel Restore treatments, as well as Isolaz acne treatment, with Today Show host Meredith Vieira.

Fraxel Restore was used to improve the skin tone of two women suffering from uneven pigmentation. Jill, 43, has fair skin and experienced considerable sun exposure without adequate sun protection as a child. She had Fraxel laser treatment to repair the sun damage on her face and was pleased with the results and new skin cell growth stimulated by the Fraxel laser.

“It really got rid of so much of the sun damage that I could see. It just makes me feel like I have fresh, new skin,” Jill said.

Dr. Chapas informed viewers about Fraxel Restore recovery, indicating that a few days of redness and dryness may occur after treatment. She also indicated that for best results, Fraxel Restore may need to be performed in a series of one to three treatments, depending on the needs of your skin.

Lisa, 46, also sought treatment with the Fraxel laser to improve skin discoloration she developed as a result of health issues and breakouts. In addition to undergoing treatment with the Fraxel Restore, Lisa also had Thermage skin tightening performed on her face to correct mild skin laxity.

The story’s final story highlighted another woman named Lisa, 37, who had Thermage treatment performed on her abdomen to tighten sagging skin lingering after two pregnancies. Dr. Chapas explained that Thermage skin tightening works by stimulating collagen production and indicated that Thermage results typically last one to two years.

Fraxel Restore skin rejuvenation and Thermage skin tightening procedures are available at the offices of Eugene plastic surgeon Dr. Lee Daniel.
