Dr Oz’s The Fix Plastic Surgery segment continued with a revolutionary laser that drastically reduces your risk of getting Skin Cancer and takes away years of sun damage to make you look younger. Dr Mathew Avram demonstrated the Solta Dual Laser for Sun Damage on Shelley – a lady who was an athlete and loved outdoor sports. She is 49 years old and in great shape, but her face looks 10 years older than her body. Shelley said that her mistake was that she always wore sunscreen, but she never reapplied it. She was diagnosed with Skin Cancer on her lip less than a year ago and is worried she will get more Skin Cancer over time – plus she hates the wrinkles around her eyes, forehead and lips.
Dr Oz: Sun Damage Laser Treatment
Dr Mathew Avram said that the Solta Dual Laser, a Sun Damage Laser Treatment, can clean up discoloration and is FDA approved to help remove pre-cancerous skin problems. The Solta Dual Laser was perfect for Shelley since she had two concerns – a cosmetic concern about her face looking old but also a medical concern about Skin Cancer.
Dr Oz: Solta Dual Laser for Sun Damage
Dr Avram did Shelley’s treatment just one week ago. He first applied a topical anesthetic and then applied the Solta Dual Laser to her face several times. She finished the procedure by applying ice packs for about 10 minutes and then she headed home. The results were amazing! Shelley said that she feels so much better about herself when she looks in the mirror now. The cosmetic aspect is important, but the cancer risk she is avoiding now is truly priceless. Dr Mathew Avram said that the ideal patient has significant sun damage and the downtime is not too great but you will have redness and swelling for a while. The Solta Dual Laser costs $1000 – $1500 and is a 10 minute procedure. But like Dr Oz said, the money definitely seems well spent on this Sun Damage Treatment!
