What is Fraxel Restore DUAL?
Fraxel lasers are fractionated lasers that provide energy in a precisely controlled manner. We offer treatments with both ablative (Fraxel re:pair) and non-ablative (Fraxel dual) devices.
Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment is a non-ablative fractionated laser that stimulates collagen growth in the skin resulting in a healthy glow, smoother texture, and improved appearance. The laser energy creates microscopic laser columns, which produces a wound healing response without injuring the skin surface, allowing for a faster recovery time, typically 1-3 days. A series of non-ablative laser treatments can improve fine lines, mottled pigmentation, melasma, acne scars, surgical scars, stretch marks, enlarged pores, and more.

What Can I Expect from a Fraxel DUAL Treatment?
To begin your Fraxel DUAL laser treatment, your provider will cleanse the treatment area and apply a topical anesthetic ointment to ensure your comfort. The laser will then be moved over the area, emitting laser light energy. The Fraxel DUAL laser creates microscopic wounds that penetrate deep into the skin, without damaging the skin’s surface or surrounding tissue. The micro-wounds stimulate the body’s healing response, leading to collagen remodeling and the growth of new, healthy skin from the inside out. This results in an improvement in skin discoloration and skin texture for a more youthful complexion. Treatment usually takes about 25 minutes to complete.
Following treatment, you will be provided with specific aftercare instructions to ensure optimal results. Patients should avoid direct sun exposure and keep the treatment area well moisturized. Most patients will require 3-5 treatment sessions. We recommend that you space treatment sessions 1-2 months apart for optimal improvement.
