HOW DOES IT WORK?

Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.

Results

The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.

RESTORING YOUR YOUTHFULNESS

Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 resurfacing treatments effectively target both the surface and deeper layers of the skin for a smoother, fresher, younger looking appearance.

  • Improved tone and texture
  • Reduced wrinkles around the eyes
  • Erasing of unwanted brown spots
  • Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars
  • Effective treatment of pre-cancerous
  • lesions (actinic keratosis)
  • Excellent treatment for face, neck, chest, arms, legs, and back

The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target aging and sun damaged skin.

Treatment Modes

The Fraxel Dual Laser has the unique advantage of two treatment modes:

  • 1550: Penetrates deep into the skin layers, specifically targeting concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring.
  • 1927: effectively targets tone, texture and other more superficial signs of aging.

The treatment will be tailored to your desired outcomes and can even be combined so that you receive the added benefits of both a superficial and deep laser treatment, both on and off the face.

The Fraxel treatment is a safe, non-ablative laser skin procedure that can resurface damaged skin and uncover the youthful skin you long for.

Fraxel Laser FAQs

HOW MANY TREATMENTS ?

Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments. The speci c number of treatments is tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.

After Treatment Expectations

Depending on the level of the treatment, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure which diminishes as quickly as the next day or over the next several days. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue with the treatment sessions, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat after each treatment. As with a sunburn, your skin will ake and exfoliate normally, revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.

Is it safe?

Fraxel treatment is a safe option backed by extensive research. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk* and/ or downtime. You should discuss this with your clinician prior 
to treatment.
