Fraxel Dual is an innovative laser treatment for resurfacing aging skin, reducing brown spots, actinic keratosis, scarring and even stretch marks. This laser has variable wavelength and energy settings that allows for highly individualized care. A treatment can focus on collagen stimulation for fine lines, wrinkles or scarring or unwanted pigment related to sun damage/age or several issues together all in one treatment. Your provider will determine the best settings to meet your specific needs. The outcome is an impressive more youthful and fresh appearance that will continue to improve for a year after treatment.
How it Works
Fraxel Dual is a non-ablative laser, which means it does not remove the top layer of skin like some other lasers, but rather treats in tiny micro-treatment zones that are healed quickly by the healthy surrounding tissue. This precise technology means amazing results with downtime lasting only about one week. Fraxel is also safe and effective for most skin colors because it targets water in the skin, not melanin. Although one treatment can result in significant improvement, a series of three to five is recommended for optimal rejuvenation.
Areas of Treatment
Because of its potency in generating collagen, Fraxel is highly effective against fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, décolletage and hands. Many patients also like to treat their arms for sun damage and crepey skin with great results.
It is also an ideal procedure for acne scarring and some surgical scars. Age spots, sunspots, and other forms of pigmentation on the skin can be minimized significantly. Fraxel Dual is also our treatment of choice for managing actinic keratosis, which is one of the earliest symptoms of skin cancer.
