Like a politician with his jaw wired shut, the word “laser” is easier to understand if you already know what it stands for. Move beyond acronym analysis with this Groupon.
Choose from Three Options
- $199 for one Fraxel laser treatment for the face (a $785 value)
- $399 for two Fraxel laser treatments for the face (a $1,570 value)
- $799 for four Fraxel laser treatments for the face (a $3,140 value)<p>
Each Fraxel treatment addresses surgical scars, sun damage, wrinkles around the eyes, and other skin troubles. The treatment works by sending energy from laser beams deep into the face’s dermal layer, stimulating collagen production and the body’s natural healing process. A topical anesthetic minimizes discomfort during the FDA–approved treatment, which takes around 30 minutes to perform and requires no downtime posttreatment. See the official Fraxel website for more details.<p>
Aristocrat Plastic Surgery
Dr. Kevin Tehrani's vast knowledge of plastic surgery keeps him in demand––he's a published author, an international speaker, an assistant clinical professor at SUNY Downstate Medical Center, and a go-to source for publications such as New Beauty magazine. But all this activity doesn't keep him from his patients. He typically spends an hour with them during their initial consultations, answering their questions, reviewing images of them on a computer, and projecting what they'd look like if they were made of pixels.
Sometimes these consultations lead to cosmetic surgery, and sometimes Dr. Tehrani and his patients instead turn to such noninvasive aesthetic equipment as the Zeltiq CoolSculpting system. Ever the innovator, Dr. Tehrani launched an iPhone app called iLipo, which helps patients to alter their image on the spot to see how a given treatment will transform their body.
