Fraxel DUAL

What is Fraxel DUAL?

Fraxel DUAL is a laser resurfacing treatment that can stimulate the growth of healthy new skin cells at a deep level. Featuring two different lasers with unique wavelengths in a single device (1927nm and 1550nm), it can provide a comprehensive solution for patients with multiple skin concerns. By stimulating the growth of new collagen, it can restore, refine, and repair the skin for more youthful, elastic, and even-toned skin.

What Can Fraxel DUAL Treat?

Because of Fraxel DUAL’s dual wavelength treatment options, it can address a wide array of skin concerns. These include:

  • Scars
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Age spots
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Texture
  • Acne and acne scars

How Does Fraxel DUAL Work?

Fraxel DUAL uses two different wavelengths to address two different types of concerns. The first can address pigmentation and sun damage for a more even skin tone and a reduction in brown spots, blotchiness, or redness. The second option targets deeper in the skin to treat fine lines, texture, and acne scarring. By creating microscopic treatment zones in the skin with dual laser frequencies, it leaves the rest of the skin intact while also prompting the creation of new skin cells and collagen. By only treating a fraction of the skin, it reduces downtime and promotes rapid healing.

Fraxel DUAL Results

After treatment, your skin will look red and may feel swollen and hot. Swelling typically lasts for the first few days before subsiding. You may notice a sandpaper texture to the skin which lasts for about one week. Once the skin completely heals over 1-2 weeks, you will see a noticeable improvement in your skin’s overall look, feel, and quality. It’s essential to keep your skin protected with SPF 30+ daily and avoid harsh skincare products and active ingredients. Results can last for several months to one year and can be maintained with yearly treatments. Our team can help you develop an appropriate skincare regimen in line with your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the results with Fraxel DUAL?

Fraxel DUAL produces smoother, younger-looking skin with a single treatment. It can also address uneven tone and texture, brown spots, fine lines and wrinkles, and scars. In short, it’s an all-in-one option to transform your skin and maintain a fresher look.

What to expect?

Treatments can take 1-2 hours in total. You will be given a topical anesthetic for comfort, which takes about 60 minutes to work. The treatment itself takes about 20-25 minutes for a full face.

Does Fraxel DUAL hurt?

Fraxel DUAL is not painful, but it is normal to experience a feeling of heat during treatment. Topical anesthetic will be given ahead of your treatment and a built-in cooling mechanism is also used to control heat buildup. Afterward, you may experience something similar to the feeling of sunburn in your treatment area, but this subsides within 1-3 hours.

How long do the positive effects of Fraxel DUAL last?

The results of Fraxel DUAL are generally long-lasting, but it can depend on the specific concerns you’re treating as well as how well you maintain your results. Our team will give you detailed steps on how to best maintain your results.

First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 minutes prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area. The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face.

 

Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.

 

It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.
