Why Wings of Hope?
Melanoma strikes men and women of all ages, all races and all skin types.
Melanoma, the most serious type of skin cancer, is the fastest growing cancer in the United States and worldwide. Despite the magnitude of the disease treatment options for patients have been limited for more than two decades, and melanoma research remains woefully underfunded. The DC Wings of Hope mission is to support the medical RESEARCH for finding effective treatments and eventually a cure for melanoma; to EDUCATE patients and physicians about the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of melanoma; and to act as an ADVOCATE for the melanoma community to raise awareness of this disease the need for a cure.

How does the Fraxel Dual Laser 1927 work?
Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body's own natural health process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing healthy skin.
When do results appear, and how long do they last?
The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
