Laser Skin Rejuvenation with the Fraxel Dual Laser

The Fraxel dual laser uses fractional technology to treat signs of sun damage and aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, crow’s feet, acne scarring, age spots and areas of hyperpigmentation. During a Fraxel laser session, a fraction of the tissue is treated, and the surrounding tissue is left intact. The laser energy triggers the body’s injury response and stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells. The fractional pattern also speeds up the healing phase.

Fraxel procedures take between 20 and 25 minutes. A series of three to five treatment sessions — spaced two to four weeks apart — is recommended for optimal results. Scheduling appointments several weeks apart allows the skin to heal between laser treatments.

Results should appear within one to three weeks and continue to improve over time, with the development of new collagen and elastin.

Possible Side Effects

Immediately following treatment, you may experience a sensation similar to a light sunburn. Mild swelling and redness may also occur. It’s normal for the skin to feel dry, peel and flake from treatment, but these side effects will disappear over time.

It’s strongly recommended that you protect your skin from the sun after a Fraxel dual laser treatment; wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you are in the sun.
