The Fraxel® Dual laser was developed in 2001 by two innovative engineers. These engineers had a vision for fractional laser technology that would help patients get all the benefits of laser resurfacing treatment without the nasty complications that tended to accompany it.
They designed a fractional laser that creates thousands of microscopic treatment zones per square centimeter of skin, causing the natural healing process of the body to stimulate collagen growth and a regeneration of healthy skin cells. With this groundbreaking laser, patients are able to eliminate scars, wrinkles and other unhealthy tissue by allowing the underlying tissue to regrow into a rejuvenated, glowing texture. This is done without damaging healthy tissue, creating less complications and a drastically reduced recovery period.
Our Fraxel laser system can treat a variety of skin conditions, including:
Even if you have no blemishes at all, Fraxel Dual laser skin resurfacing can be used to restore your skin’s natural beauty. You can expect a brighter, softer texture within several days following the procedure. It all depends on what you’re looking to accomplish.
With the expertise of our premier practitioners, the Lasky Aesthetics & Laser Center delivers amazing results when performing Fraxel dual laser skin resurfacing treaments. If you would like to find out more about Fraxel, please read below or call our office today.
As a general guideline, Fraxel laser skin resurfacing is a better option for patients under 50. It is a more delicate treatment than Fractional CO2 laser resurfacing, and is intended to treat milder skin issues. Because of this, it actually results in less downtime than most other laser skin resurfacing treatments performed.
On average, patients at our state-of-the art medical spa see results within one week after Fraxel treatments. Their skin has a soft glow, and the texture is much smoother than before. Pores have decreased in size, and fine lines have been eliminated.
All in all, we love Fraxel Dual laser skin resurfacing because it gives our patients the results they deserve. As an all-around skin resurfacing treatment, Fraxel can be used throughout the body to help your skin regrow into its naturally beautiful appearance. At Lasky Aesthetics, we use Fraxel on the following treatment areas:
As an initial step for your Fraxel laser treatment, a numbing topical cream is applied to your face. Fraxel laser resurfacing is considered non-invasive, but because it does vaporize the outermost layer of your skin, this topical cream helps maintain total comfort during the procedure.
The Fraxel procedure can take anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour. Your practitioner will carefully apply the Fraxel Dual laser to your skin. It will feel like mild heat on your skin. This is the laser working to remove damaged tissue while concurrently heating the underlying collagen layer to promote collagen growth. In this way, the laser treats the surface of your skin while adding volume and body underneath it.
After the procedure, your practitioner will give you guidelines to follow during the recovery period. The whole purpose of Fraxel laser treatment is to allow your skin to regenerate healthy tissue in the skin, so this recovery period is critical to good results.
If you have any questions during the recovery from Fraxel, or wish to consult with us, we are always available. We want to see your results through to the end, so our relationship continues long after the procedure is over.
Depending on the area treated, and the condition of your skin, Fraxel Dual treatments can cost between $1,000 and $2,500.
Fraxel Dual is a non-invasive procedure, so the risks and side effects are minimal. You may experience some swelling and redness similar to the feeling of a sunburn. Any swelling should resolve in two to three days. Redness will fade and no longer be visible by the end of the first week.
The Fraxel Dual procedure will take from 30 minutes to an hour. During your treatment, our laser expert will apply the laser to your skin. The procedure is non-invasive, and it should not be painful. A topical cream can be applied to the treatment area to help keep you more comfortable.
Each person will have his or her own goals and skincare needs. An evaluation of your skin will determine the precise number of treatments you will need. We will meet with you to customize a plan that is right for you, but you can expect to need between three and five treatments for optimal results.
One week before your treatment, you will need to stop using any retinoids, peels, acids, or any other products that can cause skin sensitivity. Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher for at least three months after your last treatment.
Fraxel Dual is a versatile skin resurfacing treatment. It can be used to treat a variety of areas throughout your body to rejuvenate your skin’s appearance. Fraxel Dual can be used on the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs.
Fraxel Dual treatments can refresh damaged, aging skin. It does not provide the more dramatic benefits of a facelift. A Fraxel Dual procedure can be used before or after a facelift to maximize results.
