With today’s dermatology advancements, patients have the opportunity to treat their skin blemishes with laser technology. Advanced laser resurfacing systems work by targeting a specific area of skin cells and triggering a natural skin response to regenerate collagen and replace old, damaged skin cells with rejuvenated, glowing skin.
The Fraxel Dual laser is the leading and most advanced non-ablative laser resurfacing system available today. It has the unique ability to address superficial skin concerns as well as treat deep skin problems. Breakthrough technology exists behind the Fraxel laser, allowing only a small portion of the skin to be treated at one time while leaving surrounding tissues remain undisturbed. This “fractional” approach means faster healing and less downtime for patients, a remarkable advantage over traditional laser resurfacing.
The Fraxel Dual has two lasers, one for superficial concerns like sunspots, freckles, and other unwanted pigmentation, and one laser for targeting deep layers of the skin and improving wrinkles and acne scars. Fraxel Dual is very safe and ideal for delicate areas of the body, such as the face and neck.
Results of the Fraxel Dual will continue to be seen within a week after treatment, as the treated skin cells continue to regenerate and produce new collagen. Multiple treatments are often necessary to achieve maximum results, but treatment sessions should be spaced about four to six weeks apart. If you experience mild redness or swelling after your Fraxel Dual treatment, rest assured that this is normal and only temporary. You should also expect a brief exfoliation process in the subsequent days after treatment. This is simply your old, damaged skin cells sloughing off to reveal a clearer, smoother and brighter skin complexion. Many patients choose to combine your laser treatment with a facial filler or injectable to truly turn back the hands of time.
