Fraxel™ DUAL Laser

hero image

For patients interested in improving the appearance of their skin, the Fraxel™ DUAL Laser may be a great option. Fraxel targets the tone and texture of the skin, and provides patients with a more youthful appearance of the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs and back. The treatment can also target fine lines and acne scars by activating the body’s own natural healing process.

Backed by extended research, this non-surgical and safe procedure uses a light laser to treat a number of problems for aging skin, such as surface lines and wrinkles, scars, sun spots, melasma, actinic keratosis, and textured skin.

Candidacy for Fraxel

Patients who want to look and feel younger but struggle with the appearance of damaged skin are great candidates for the dual laser treatment by Fraxel. Common skin issues caused by age, the sun, pollution, stress, and fatigue, can prevent patients from looking as young as they feel. Fraxel is effective for both men and women, and can help those who are seeking the following:

  • Improve skin tone and texture
  • Reduce wrinkles around the eyes and mouth
  • Erase brown spots
  • Improve appearance of acne and surgical scars1
  • Effective treatment for precancerous cells (actinic keratosis)

What to Expect During Your Fraxel Procedure

Fraxel gets its name from its ability to treat only a “fraction,” or part of the skin. Using a dual technology to treat these sections, Fraxel leaves a matrix of treated skin next to untreated skin resulting in faster healing and less downtime with the same dramatic results of more aggressive lasers.

Fraxel’s microscopic lasers penetrate deeply into targeted skin, while leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. In addition to a more rapid recovery, the Fraxel process stimulates the body’s own natural healing process by replacing old and damaged cells with healthy, glowing skin. Fraxel can be performed in multiple sessions, depending on the patient’s desired appearance and recovery time. As a dual laser, Fraxel uses two treatment modes to tailor the procedure to a patient’s specific desired outcomes. The 1550 laser targets the deep layers of skin to treat issues such as wrinkles and scarring. On the other hand, the 1927 laser targets the surface of the skin, to improve skin tone and texture, as well as any other surface signs of aging.

The physicians at My Houston Surgeons recommend combining Fraxel DUAL Laser treatments with our newly developed and tested post-treatment and maintenance skincare regimens for ideal Fraxel DUAL Laser results.

Fraxel Recovery

After treatment, some patients may experience slight swelling or redness. This typically dissipates after a couple of days. Following each session, patients may experience a sunburn type reaction. This allows their skin to flake and exfoliate, leaving behind glowing, fresh skin. Fraxel recovery can be optimized by using our Fraxel DUAL Laser Post Procedure Skincare Kit, especially developed for our Fraxel patients by My Houston Surgeons.

Fraxel Results

Results from this groundbreaking procedure are both progressive and immediate. Not long after a Fraxel treatment, skin appears smoother and brighter, and feels softer. Deeper skin improvements tend to take three to six months to show, as the body continues to produce new collagen and restore the youthful architecture of the skin. Fraxel’s results are long lasting, but can vary depending on a patient’s lifestyle, original skin condition and their skincare regimen. Fraxel results can be optimized by using the My Houston Surgeons Fraxel DUAL Laser Maintenance Skincare Kit, developed specifically for ongoing skin care for our Fraxel patients.
