Fraxel® Dual 1550/1927 laser is a revolutionary treatment for skin rejuvenation offering excellent results with minimal downtime. Fraxel® is effective on the following:
- Wrinkle lines – especially around the eyes (crow’s feet) and between the brows (frown lines)
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Age spots (sunspots or brown spots)
- Actinic keratoses (precancerous skin lesions)
How does Fraxel® work?
Fraxel® is a non-ablative laser that uses “fractional photothermolysis” technology, in which thousands of microscopic laser columns treat a fraction of the skin at a time without affecting the surrounding healthy tissue. These laser columns stimulate the production of younger and healthier skin.
How many Fraxel® treatments will be required?
Many patients see significant improvement after just one treatment. However, the number of treatments required vary from individual to individual and the skin condition that is being treated. On average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions. With each treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area 60 minutes prior to the procedure. The procedure itself takes about 30 to 45 minutes and can be performed every 6 to 8 weeks.
