At this year’s American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ annual meeting, which will be held October 26 to October 31, in Baltimore, Reliant Technologies will announce its Fraxel re:pair laser system’s FDA clearance for photodamage.

The Fraxel re:pair system provides Fractional Deep Dermal Ablation treatment, which leads to tissue contraction, tightening, and collagen remodeling up to 1.6 mm into the skin. The treatment removes aged and damaged skin without the prolonged downtime and adverse reactions associated with conventional bulk ablative resurfacing lasers.

Clinical investigations using the Fraxel re:pair system include acne scars, surgical scars, striae, and actinic keratoses.
