Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser treatment targets aging and sundamaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing.
FRAXEL® DUAL IS AN IDEAL TREATMENT FOR: Wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles), acne scars, surgical scars, age spots and sunspots (pigmented lesions), melasma (irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose), Actinic Keratoses (precancerous lesions), and skin resurfacing.
This specialized version of the fraxel laser, as the name suggests, adds a second laser to the system. The first laser is a 1550nm erbium laser, and the second is a 1927nm thulium fiber laser. The combination of lasers makes the system one of the most versatile and customizable tools available. What this means to you is that skin treatment can now be more exact and cause less collateral damage. The Fraxel Dual targets the aging or sun-damaged skin and avoids disrupting your fresh and healthy skin cells.
The Fraxel Dual also has a modified tip that allows it to treat large areas of hyperpigmentation extremely effectively. The frequency of the laser targets the darker pigmented areas of your skin. By overheating the pigmented cells, your skin is able to generate a clear new layer. The Fraxel Duel Laser is proven to be highly effective on almost all pigmentation issues except melasma. For melasma, we generally recommend different treatments like Laser Photorejuvenation.
Fraxel Dual Lasers can be used to treat:
- Sun damage and small wrinkles
- Acne scarring and surgical scars
- Age spots
- skin texture and tone
- precancerous lesions
What to expect:
When you come for treatment, we will sit you in a comfortable chair and have you wear protective goggles. We then spread cooling gel over the treatment area that helps keep you comfortable and allows the laser to glide more easily. Most patients seldom notice anything more than mild discomfort during treatment and little to no recovery time is required.
