Celebrity Kim Kardashian has been under a worldwide microscope for years, after allowing viewers to watch her life unfold under in her family’s reality show, “Keeping up with the Kardashian’s.” She is constantly scrutinized on tabloids and television for everything between her love life, wardrobe and especially her skin. Her flawless skin has been the topic of conversation, what does she do? Kim makes regular trips to her dermatologist to maintain her complexion using the Fraxel laser.
Fraxel laser technology uses fractional laser resurfacing to emit microdamage into the skin. The tiny areas of damage then stimulate collagen production, a key skin-structuring protein. The more collagen that replaces skin, the healthier, tighter and smoother the new skin is by use of fractional resurfacing. The laser can treat the skin with different intensities, however there is little to virtually no downtime needed afterwards. Depending upon what patients want cleared up, whether its pigmentation, wrinkles or acne, multiple visits may be needed. Many patients who have used the Fraxel laser, have another treatment every 1 to 3 years.
Dr. Rokhsar is considered an international authority in the treatment of Fraxel and has taught more physicians on its use than any other physician in the world. In 2004, Dr. Rokhsar, along with Dr. Richard Fitzpatrick, were the first physicians to introduce Fraxel laser technology to the world after having worked with the prototype for over a year. Since its inception, it has been considered the number one laser resurfacing procedure in the world. Dr. Rokhsar has made significant contributions to the cosmetic world. He was the first to publish on the treatment of wrinkles, sun damage, acne, surgical scars and melasma with the use of the Fraxel laser.
