Internationally Renowned, Individually Focused

Frax or Fiction

May 13, 2005,

MARINA del REY – May 13, 2005 - Dr. Grant Stevens of Marina Plastic Surgery is one of the first plastic surgeons in the Los Angeles area to begin a new laser technology, the Fraxel® Laser Treatment.

Known for his unrivaled reputation in treating patients from all around the world with new and emerging cosmetic therapies, Dr. Stevens is thrilled by his results with Fraxel® Laser Treatments on both male and female clients. At a time when consumers value their time, the Fraxel® Laser can improve their appearance, without that unwanted lengthy recovery period, and without significant surgical expenses.

“Many of my patients who want to improve themselves shun the idea of having surgery with weeks and weeks of recovery time before they see results,” explains Dr. Stevens. “What makes Fraxel® Laser Treatments so appealing to these patients is that they can achieve results comparable to an invasive surgical procedure, but without the lengthy downtime or potential risks.”

The key difference between Fraxel® Laser Treatments and more traditional ablative methods is that Fraxel® treats pinpoint areas on the skin, penetrating small fractions by 400 to 700 microns – just deep enough to stimulate significant collagen regeneration. The end result is impressive change to fine lines and wrinkles, and a significant smoothing out of skin tone and color. Those are the facts! Now, think: Baby-smooth skin!

Dr. Stevens’ technical know-how and skillful artistry have further refined Fraxel® Laser Treatments to achieve even greater and more predictable results. He applauds Reliant, the manufacturer of the Fraxel®, for its ongoing, hands-on approach to training physicians with the technology and using clinical insights from experts like himself to advance treatment applications.

“Using the most sophisticated treatment guidelines, we have seen enhanced cosmetic improvement to what were already excellent results,” says Dr. Stevens. “The fact that I have not had any patient complications with this technology is truly a testament to the safety and efficacy of the Fraxel® Laser Treatment.”

More than ever, cosmetic surgery is on the rise. With the popular TV reality shows, more and more interest is directed to this industry. Does life imitate art? — or does art imitate life? “We believe that with this evolution of plastic-surgery-based TV shows, the general public is no longer afraid to speak out about wanting to look good. It’s as if the stigma has been lifted, and now, more than ever, people across the world are desiring youthful and healthy looks”, reports Dr. Stevens. “A sudden rash of male clients, especially executives, are seeking out something to rejuvenate their appearance.. They simply want to look their best – which positively affects their self-esteem – and that usually communicates to a more successful, confident individual.”

Of note: Cosmetic surgery is no longer for the select few, nor simply the ‘rich and famous’ – but rather, it is now the mainstream population that seeks physical improvement… from ‘Desperate Housewives to The Apprentices”. Nip/Tuck is not just a TV show any longer… it represents the consumer’s insatiable appetite for the Fountain of Youth.

Dr. Grant Stevens is a California board-certified plastic surgeon and the Medical Director of Plastic Surgery Associates in Marina Del Rey. He is an active member at Daniel Freeman Marina Hospital where he is the Past Chairman of the Department of Surgery, the Chairman of the Liposuction Committee, and the Medical Director of The Breast Center, is on staff at St. John’s Medical Center and The Marina Outpatient Surgery Center, and was named one of America’s Best Physicians in “The Guide to Top Doctors.”
