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 that age skin, such as surface lines and wrinkles, scars,sun spots, melasma, actinic keratosis, and textured skin.
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 can be caused by age, the sun, pollution, stress, and fatigue, stopping patients from looking as young as they feel. Fraxel is effective with 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 scars
• Effective treatment for pre-cancerous cells (actinic keratosis)
Fraxel™ uses dual technology to treat damaged skin. Using microscopic lasers which have the power to penetrate deeply into the skin, the treatment can address small sections of the skin at once, leaving the surrounding tissue unharmed. This promotes rapid recovery. Furthermore, this process stimulates the body’s own natural healing process by replacing old and damaged cells with healthy, glowing skin. Often, this procedure is given more than once, but simply depends 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.

Before & After
Results from this groundbreaking procedure are both progressive and immediate. Not long after treatment, patients’ skin appears smoother and brighter, and feels softer. Conversely, deeper skin improvements tend to take three to six weeks to show, as the body continues to produce new collagen. Fraxel’s results are long lasting, but can vary depending on a patient’s lifestyle, original skin condition and their skincare regimen.
After treatment, some patients may experience light swelling or redness. This typically dissipates after a couple of days. Following each session, patients receive a sun-burn type reaction. This allows their skin to flake and exfoliate, leaving behind glowing, fresh skin.
