Fraxel Dual Laser
How does Fraxel Laser work?
Fraxel laser treatment has two wavelength 1550/1927. The treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.
How long the results of Fraxel last?
It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. It usually takes multiple treatment (series of three treatments) over 12 weeks for significant results. The results last longer if the client have a daily routine to rejuvenate the skin.
Does Fraxel treatment hurt?
Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.
How many Fraxel Laser sessions will I need and how will they be spaced?
Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for healing and the production of new collagen to replace damaged tissue.
