<p>Jaysam,</p>
<p>I've asked you this before- do you have any clinical studies that you can point to?? Fraxel lasers have a long history and multiple clinical papers. If you are going to promote laser scar surgery in India with a new type of laser, be prepared to back it up, please. C</p>

Dr. Winkler's laser treatment sounds extremely encouraging. When laser treatments are performed in the right hands, they often produce the desired results (assuming people have realistic expectations). [br][br]Keep in mind, however, that lasers in the wrong hands can be extremely dangerous. I have seen photos of people who have become burned or scarred because the practitioner did not have the proper credentials to perform the treatment. After something terrible occurs, it is difficult to reverse the problem. [br] [br]Bottom line? Be sure to go to a qualified physician if you are interested in laser therapy.

Kelly, I thought that microdermabrasion therapy involved the mechanical process of using crystals or flakes to loosen surface skin and at the same time suction away the dead cells through a vacuuming action. I believe the pressure and speed of the machine determines the intensity of the treatment. Most people consider this to be a lunchtime procedure, but if stronger force is used, then individuals may need a day or two to heal. [br][br]Nonetheless, I do not think that microdermabrasion throws light into the dermis layer of the skin, chiefly because it is not a light therapy. Am I wrong about this?

for treatment of scars like acne or wrinkles and others microdermabrasion technique works best, it throws light into the dermis layer of skin and cure it more permanently than other techniques.[br][br][url=http://laser-removal.com/][br][br]Laser machine for skin care[/url]

From what I understand, there are some steps we can take to help counteract the possibility of internally-stimulated acne. [br][br]For example, if we are overly stressed, perhaps we can implement relaxation techniques like those used in yoga. If we consume a lot of sugary foods or saturated oils, then we should cut back on these products. if we are experiencing hormonal imbalances, maybe we should see an endocrinologist for advice. If we constantly touch our cheeks, nose, forehead, etc., with our hands, we should try to stop the practice, as we could be spreading bacteria to our faces. [br] [br]If the above do not apply, then a dermatologist is the next logical move. Acne can be beaten, but it may take a while.

Carrol: Thanks for the advice. Do you happen to know how to recognize when acne is an internal problem that shouldn't be treated with laser surgery and when it's best to get laser sugery for acne? What differentiates the two?

Dear Dr Winkler, this laser treatment sounds fascinating. Are the results promising for almost all individuals, or do some people have better success with the procedure than others? [br][br]I also have another question concerning lasers, although I am relatively certain the answer depends on which type of laser is being utilized. Still, here goes: Do some laser treatments have a tendency to disrupt the underlying fat? If so, what will happen? Will the skin appear uneven? [br][br]Thank you very much for your time.

This is a fairly new treatment, so I don't have too many before and afters yet. Click here for more info and some photos from my website. Stretch Mark Laser Treatment The procedure takes about 30 minutes and it is best if it is done monthly for about 5 sessions. Cost varies, but is $250 per treatment in my practice.

Sounds interesting, Dr. Winkler- do you have before & afters of treated stretch marks that you can [url=http://stretchmarks.scars1.com/Before_After]post here[/url] - it would be great to look at & compare. Is the procedure quick? How painful? How many treatments for big stretch marks & how much does it cost? Thanks for sharing!

Hi everyone! I have been a member of the forum for about a year but have never contributed. My name is Dr. Andrew Winkler and I am the director of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon at the University of Colorado Hospital in Denver. I figured I'd submit something that people with scars might be interested in. There is some fairly new laser technology that I have been using for the last 3 years that has produced some amazing results! This laser is an Erbium:Glass 1540nm laser. It is extremely safe, has very little downtime and can be used anywhere on the body. In fact, the Erbium:Glass laser recently received FDA approval for stretchmarks, which are notoriously very difficult to treat! While there is no treatment that can erase a scar, this laser has provided some dramatic benefits for my patients. Definitely something to consider if you have an unsightly scar! The laser works by delivering energy to a scar, which prompts the body to remodel the scar. This leads to a softening and flattening of the scar. More info here if you're interested: http://visagecenter.com/lux1540-skin-resurfacing Stay tuned for some before & afters on that site!
