Bryn Mawr, PA,September 6, 2013:Through an advanced skin treatment technique, Dr. Andrew Kwak at the LUMEN Laser Center has achieved maximum rejuvenation results for his patients in the Philadelphia area. This treatment, called the Fraxel® Laser Treatment (FLT), requires special training and is the only fractional non-ablative resurfacing treatment with proven clinical efficacy. This means Philadelphians with acne scars, age spots, or wrinkles can rediscover healthy skin without long recovery periods or endless visits to the cosmetic surgeon’s office.


This unique treatment works on a patient’s face, chest, and hands. It can be appliedto all types of skin, including skin of color, and has a proven record of refreshing skin by removing spots, wrinkles, acne marks, surgical scarring, melisma, or stretch marks. FLT targets aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas well beneath the skin’s outermost layer. In this way, the laser triggers the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells.


Not all cosmetic surgeons offer FLT. Thanks to his focus on innovation and technology, however, Dr. Kwak acquired the equipment and the expertise to perform the treatment early on. In fact, he won Philadelphia Magazine’s “Best of Philly 2006” for his work in this area. Since then, he has performed hundreds of FLT treatments. Each one has catered to the patient’s individual needs. He has become the Philadelphia area’s most experienced FLT provider. Dr. Kwak has even been asked by the makers of Fraxel® to teach other physicians about the technique.


Before FLT, a patient had to choose between ablative and non-ablative treatments to fix skin conditions. While ablative destroyed unwanted tissue by vaporizing tissue at high temperatures, it also left patients with pain and long recoveries. Non-ablative treatments had very few side effects, but required numerous treatments over many months for modest results. FLT, Dr. Kwak says, offers the best of both. “Because FLT combines the impact of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers, healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime for patients.”


Dr. Kwak invites people in the Philadelphia area to visit his website to learn more and see before/after photos of this exciting treatment. Interested patients should call the center and schedule a consultation appointment.


LUMEN Laser Center is located in Bryn Mawr, PA. Under Dr. Kwak’s directorship, it has become one of the most advanced plastic surgery centers in the greater Philadelphia region. For more information about the LUMEN Laser Center, call 610-525-0606, email, or visit
