The Fraxel® Dual 1550/1927 Laser by SoltaMedical® is used to resurface aging and sun damaged skin giving you smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin with improved tone and texture.
The Fraxel Dual laser works by inducing the body’s natural healing response and accelerates the formation of healthy new skin by heating tiny areas in the dermis while leaving the surrounding tissue untouched. The Fraxel Dual laser has an additional wavelength (1927nm) that targets pigmented lesions in the more superficial layers of the skin.
One hour prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied. The laser procedure itself takes approximately 30 minutes. For optimal results, multiple treatment sessions will be needed over a period of several months.
After treatment, the treated area may feel like it has been sunburned, which lasts a few hours. The laser will cause reddening of the area that will last for approximately 1 week. You may also experience mild to moderate swelling of the treated area.
Ask your practitioner if you would be a good candidate for treatment with the Fraxel Dual laser.
