Seattle, WA (PressExposure) December 06, 2012 -- For anyone who has struggled with facial wrinkles, sun damage or a loss of skin elasticity, the question they'll inevitably face becomes, "Which cosmetic procedure is right for me?" Today, Seattle's Dr. Jennifer Reichel explains how more and more patients are choosing CO2 laser resurfacing as the answer to that question.
"CO2 resurfacing has quickly become one of the most popular 'first time' procedures among our patients," reports Dr. Reichel. "People are simply amazed that they can achieve a fresher, more youthful appearance in one or two minimally-invasive treatment sessions." CO2 resurfacing is commonly used to provide immediate skin tightening, reduce fine lines and wrinkles, and to improve skin tone and texture.
Asked to explain what sets Pacific Dermatology & Cosmetic Center apart, Dr. Reichel offered this: "What makes our practice unique is not only our patient-centric approach, but our commitment to staying on the cutting edge of cosmetic medicine," explains Dr. Reichel. "That's why we're proud to offer the Lumenis® TotalFX, which is considered the gold standard fractional CO2 laser in the industry."
TotalFX combines the benefits of the ActiveFX and DeepFX to meet patient goals in one simple procedure. "TotalFX also offers several important patient side-benefits," explains Dr. Reichel. "Compared with traditional ablative CO2 resurfacing, the treatment offers unparalleled safety, accuracy and less down-time."
Asked to comment on the growing popularity of CO2 resurfacing, Dr. Reichel concluded with this: "TotalFX is has become a "go to" treatment for a reason. With proven results and such high patient satisfaction, we can safely say that this procedure will only grow more popular in the months to come."
