At Laser Skin Care Center, our physicians use the Fraxel Dual® 1550/1927 to help patients treat damaged skin, such as sun spots, wrinkles and other signs of aging. Fraxel® treatment is a noninvasive skin resurfacing procedure approved by the FDA, and has been safely used by our physicians to improve skin health and texture for many patients.
What is Fraxel Dual® Laser used for?
At Laser Skin Care Center our physicians use the Fraxel Dual® laser to treat uneven pigmentation commonly associated with sun spots, melasma, and even precancerous conditions. Although the Fraxel Dual® resurfacing treatments are most commonly performed on facial skin, we have had great success in treating other parts of the body prone to sun damage, including the neck, chest, and hands.
Here are just some of the ways Laser Skin Care Center patients have benefited from Fraxel Dual®:
- Improved tone and texture
- Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
- Removal of unwanted brown spots
- Improved appearance of surgical and acne scars
- Effective treatment of actinic keratosis (pre-cancerous lesions)
- Excellent treatment for even the most delicate skin
How the Fraxel Dual® Laser works
Fraxel Dual® is a patented fractional technology that helps resurface skin by targeting damaged skin cells and stimulating the body’s natural healing processes. The Fraxel Dual® laser allows for targeted treatment without significant downtime or severe discomfort. The laser produces thousands of microscopic laser columns, which penetrate deep into the skin. The heat from the energy bursts removes damaged cells, but does not cause significant damage to surrounding healthy tissues.
A Fraxel Dual® treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, but we recommend you reserve around two hours of your time for appointments for local numbing and before and after pictures. Each treatment targets between 15 and 20 percent of the skin’s surface, leaving the surrounding, healthy areas virtually unaffected.
How long does Fraxel Dual® last?
Results of Fraxel Dual® are both immediate and progressive, with most patients noticing significant improvement after a single treatment. However, it’s important to understand that multiple treatments may be necessary to reach optimal results, most patients achieve their desired outcome after 2-5 treatment sessions. Over the following weeks and months, patients notice skin tightening and pigmentation improvements as the skin begins to heal itself. Lifestyle and exposure to sun will determine how long your treatments may last.
