Committed to raising sun protection awareness, Solta Medical will provide on-site skin cancer screenings for golfers, caddies and fans alike. Leading dermatologists will also provide consumers with safe and effective ways to treat a range of skin conditions, including sun damage. Solta will be showcasing the Fraxel 1927 nm wavelength treatment at the tournament, which is an effective aid for treating Actinic Keratoses (AK) or Solar Keratoses – a precancerous skin condition caused by the damaging effects of the sun.
"By offering the non-invasive Fraxel 1927 treatment, I am able to treat actinic keratoses and pigmentation associated with sun damage, while ensuring patients a safe and comfortable treatment," said Suzanne Kilmer, M.D. at the Laser and Skin Surgery Center of Northern California. "The versatility of the Fraxel technology, also, allows me to treat multiple body areas during one treatment session."
Last year, the non-ablative Fraxel 1927 nm wavelength debuted as part of the Fraxel re:store Dual platform. Due to the Fraxel 1927 nm wavelength's remarkable success, it has become the gold standard for dermatologists around the world to address AKs and other skin conditions.
"Solta Medical is excited to sponsor the Fresh Express Classic tournament for the second consecutive year as we continue our campaign designed to educate golfers and fans about sun protection through screenings and treatment option awareness," said Jeff Nardoci, Vice President of Global Marketing at Solta Medical. "The new Fraxel 1927 nm system is the only laser technology approved for the treatment of AKs that often plague outdoor enthusiasts due to over exposure to the sun."
