"Thermage and Fraxel treatments reverse the common signs of aging, like crow's feet around the eyes, loose skin around the jawline and sun and age spots," said Anne Chapas, MD, a dermatologist with the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York. "My patients frequently report significant, yet natural-looking results after receiving Thermage and Fraxel." Thermage uses radiofrequency to help tighten and contour skin and stimulate new collagen to grow. Fraxel is a laser that resurfaces aging and sun-damaged skin, smoothing out the skin's surface and erasing unwanted brown spots and wrinkles.

When used together, Thermage and Fraxel are safe and effective ways to maintain a youthful looking appearance - all without the risks, discomfort and prolonged downtime of more invasive procedures.

"The new Fraxel re:store Dual is a great anti-aging solution for multiple skin conditions on the face and body," said Gervaise Gerstner, MD, a dermatologist in private practice in New York. "With this advanced technology, I can address excess pigment, wrinkles and sagging skin without significant downtime." On Thursday, May 13, from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm at the Renaissance Times Square in New York, Solta Medical will host an exclusive Girls Night Out for members of the media to introduce the Best Friends Forever campaign. Media will receive personal skin consultations from Drs. Chapas and Gerstner; learn how Thermage and Fraxel complement each other; and be among the first to enter the Best Friends Forever contest.
