Looking Younger Without Surgery

Wrinkles before/after Fraxel laser procedure.

Newburgh – Dr. Ran Rubinstein, board-certified facial plastic surgeon and founding physician of Laser & Cosmetic Surgery Specialists PC, is among the first in the tri-state region offering two new aesthetic solutions to turn back the clock on aging and sun-damaged skin. These breakthrough laser procedures, Fraxel re:store and re:pair, provide the benefits of traditional skin resurfacing techniques without significant downtime and risks. They are the most advanced skin rejuvenation treatments available on the market today.

"The results we are achieving with both the Fraxel re:store and re:pair laser systems are remarkable," said Dr. Rubinstein. "Fraxel treatments represent new-generation laser resurfacing with predictable results. They allow me to rebuild damaged skin like digital photo modification – spot by spot."

With the revolutionary new Fraxel re:store and re:pair laser treatments, patients receive:

• Plumping of acne scars and surgical scars

• Smoother skin texture

• Reduced wrinkles and fine lines

• Improved skin tone

• Softening of deep frown lines

Fraxel procedures are done in the office with minimal discomfort and downtime.

Fraxel restore and repair offer two levels of laser treatment according to Dr. Rubinstein. "While both reduce the appearance of acne scars, surgical scars, wrinkles, age and sun spots, I recommend re:store for anyone who wants more vibrant, younger looking skin with little to no downtime," said Dr. Rubinstein. Three to five re:store treatment sessions are recommended at two to four week intervals.

"Fraxel re:pair is the more intensive treatment – best for more damaged skin," explained the doctor. The fractionated laser technology in Fraxel re:pair has reduced downtime to as little as five days, in most cases. Usually only a single treatment is required. The added safety of both Fraxel technologies has made laser resurfacing safe for the face, as well as the neck, chest and hands Dr. Rubinstein added.

Aware of the varying needs of his patients, Dr. Rubinstein has brought both of the incredibly effective Fraxel laser technologies to his office in order to best serve their unique skin care needs. For even greater effectiveness, Dr. Rubinstein is able to combine Fraxel laser resurfacing with Thermage, a non-surgical treatment modality for skin tightening.

"I am thrilled with the results of my Fraxel re:pair procedure," said Patty Falcetano of Middlehope. "Within days I was seeing results and every day my skin looks better and better. My daughters are astounded at how radiant my skin looks before I even put on any makeup," Falcetano continued.

"I’ve been a patient of Dr. Rubinstein’s for a long time," Falcetano adds. "When I decided to do something to refresh my skin, I knew he had great credentials and the procedure could be done in his office. Dr. Rubinstein truly enjoys helping people feel better about themselves and I’m so happy with the incredible results from Fraxel."

Dr. Rubinstein cautions those seeking fractionated laser technologies to ensure that they are receiving genuine Fraxel treatment. There are physicians who are claiming to offer "Fraxel" when in reality they are offering an inferior fractionated laser technology. Treatment with these inferior lasers often cost less, but patients often pay the price by receiving poor results with significantly higher risks of adverse outcomes. Dr. Rubinstein cautions patients to ask their doctor if they are receiving genuine Fraxel technology.

  • June 17th, 2009 I wonder if Dr. Rubenstein is familiar with Nd:YAG/Erbium modalities used in a combination in one seating. Fraxel is an expensive laser, treatments are expensive also, and they are not so well tolerated by patients with darker skin types. Dr. Rubenstein's input would be very appreciated at
