As the original and most widely adopted Fraxel Dual System, the Fraxel Dual Laser System is recognized for effective non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing. Predictable with a great safety record, the laser typically delivers dramatic results for all skin types, on and off the face—with minimal disruption to patients’ daily routine.
We are proud to be the first office in the tri-state area to have the new Fraxel re:store Dual Laser System. As opposed to prior Fraxel systems, the Dual has a new wavelength to better address pigmentation and other Dyschromia on the entire body with minimal discomfort, and in less treatments than before. In addition to the deep penetrating Erbium fiber laser (1550 nm), a new, more superficial Thulium fiber laser (1927 nm) can be selected based on your needs.
In short, Fraxel Dual treatment creates smoother, fresher, healthier and younger-looking skn. Improved tone, texture and pore size as well as soften wrinkles and lines.
The Fraxel Dual is ideal to treat the following conditions:
- Skin resurfacing
- Fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
- Acne Scars
- Surgical Scars
- Melasma (mask of pregnancy), discoloration or uneven pigment
- Sun damage and pigmented lesions (age/sun spots)
- Texture issues such as large pores
How it works:
Unlike earlier laser devices, the Fraxel Dual Laser Systems treat microscopic volumes of skin with each unique pulse, leaving the surrounding area intact for faster healing compared with traditional CO2 laser resurfacing. These microscopic treatment zones (MTZs) penetrate to the precise height and width necessary, while sparing many of the stem cells and Melanocytes in the papillary dermis. This translates into faster healing with less down time.
The science of Fraxel Dual treatment involves three key components:
1. The Epidermis: the outer layer of our skin.
2. The Dermis: sub-layers of skin that include Collagen and Elastin.
3. Microscopic Laser Columns: rebuilding skin from the inside out.
Under the Epidermis is a network of Collagen and Elastin, which are proteins that keep your skin youthful and tight. As you age and get more sun exposure, those proteins simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them. As a result, your skin may start to sag and show damage like wrinkles, lines or spots.
Fraxel Dual works as microscopic laser columns penetrate deep into the dermis to create tiny wounds, which trigger your body’s natural response system to heal those wounds. This process expedites your body’s remodeling of Collagen and Elastin, which results in tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin. This is how Fraxel Dual treatment creates new skin from the inside out.
Just as important are the areas of skin that Fraxel Dual treatment doesn’t touch. Because the treatment is so precise, the laser columns target only a fraction of skin at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This “fractional” treatment allows your body to heal the skin faster than if the entire area were treated at once.
Fraxel Dual is a very effective and safe way to treat tissue and pigment on the delicate skin of your hands, chest and neck.
