Since its introduction, nearly one million patients have been treated with the Fraxel® brand. We’re extremely pleased to offer the Fraxel® Dual Laser System.
Fraxel® is for people who want to look and feel younger but don’t want the extended downtimes that come with some other procedures – and the key concepts are “tone” and “texture.” With over a decade of treatments, Fraxel®’s proven technology can help reverse the visible effects of aging and sun damage including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots, and melasma. Acne and other scars can also be improved non-invasively with Fraxel®. Because Fraxel® Dual is non-invasive, it fits into your lifestyle and your current skin care regimen. Fraxel® Dual is designed to work internally within the skin to stimulate new collagen production without damaging the protective top layer so, in most cases, there’s no crusting, scabbing, or lengthy recovery time.
What is Fraxel® Dual?
Fraxel® Dual is a unique fractional resurfacing laser that utilizes two separate wavelengths (1550nm and 1927nm) to non-ablatively target the problem areas within the skin. By focusing on specific goals the patient can obtain the benefits of both wavelengths: improving the texture of the skin and also removing pigment.
