What is Fraxel DUAL Laser Treatment?

The Fraxel DUAL utilizes an advanced non-ablative fractional laser technology platform that enables treatments that address both surface-level and deeper skin issues simultaneously. The 1550 wavelength delves into the skin’s deeper layers, focusing on issues like scarring and wrinkles, whereas the 1927 wavelength is adept at enhancing the skin’s overall tone and texture, as well as mitigating superficial signs of aging.

How does the Fraxel DUAL Work?

The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 laser treatment rejuvenates the skin by directing the different wavelengths of energy that are absorbed into the skin creating microscopic columns deep into the skin layers. These columns create tiny wounds that trigger the body’s natural healing process, leading to the rapid remodeling of collagen. Importantly, the laser targets only a fraction of the skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact, which facilitates a quick recovery and promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells.

What Skin Conditions Can Fraxel DUAL Treat?

Fraxel Dual is effective in treating a wide array of skin conditions including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and surgical scars
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Actinic Keratosis
  • Sun Damage

What Skin Types and Color Tones are Recommended for Fraxel DUAL?

Fraxel DUAL stands out for its versatility and suitability across a broad spectrum of skin types and tones, including darker complexions. Determining individual suitability for Fraxel requires a comprehensive assessment of the patient’s skin condition, desired outcomes, and any potential risks.

What Can I Expect During the Recovery Period After Fraxel DUAL?

Post-treatment, patients may experience mild to moderate redness and swelling, akin to a sunburn sensation, which typically subsides within a few days. The skin may flake and peel as part of the healing process. It is crucial to follow post-treatment care instructions, including the use of sunscreen and avoiding direct sun exposure, to ensure optimal healing and results.

How Many Treatments Will I Need?

The number of treatments required varies based on individual skin conditions and desired outcomes. A series of three to five sessions, spaced about four to six weeks apart, is recommended for the best results. During your consultation, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to meet your specific needs.
