3 Ways Fraxel® Fixes More Complexion Concerns

Whether it’s because of sun damage, acne scars or just the natural effects of aging, many patients would love to improve the appearance of their skin and turn back the hands of time. Fraxel® Dual Laser can address pigmentation problems, wrinkles and acne scars on almost any part on the body, including the face, chest and hands, resolving more complexion concerns than many other cosmetic treatments available today.

1. More Wavelengths = More Options

The Fraxel® Dual Laser is unique because it can operate at two wavelengths, each of which reacts differently on the skin and treats varying issues.

  • The 1927 wavelength (known as the Thulium laser) can effectively address pigmentation concerns such as sun damage or age spots.
  • The 1550 wavelength (Erbium laser) targets deeper areas of the skin and stimulates collagen production. This increase in collagen enhances skin texture while improving wrinkles, fine lines and acne scars over time.

2. Minimal Downtime

One huge benefit of the Fraxel® Dual Laser is the minimal downtime after treatment. Most patients experience long-lasting, beautiful results without the longer recovery periods often associated with traditional ablative laser treatments. The Fraxel® treats skin in segments rather than removing the entire epidermis, which means only the target areas are addressed. Leaving untouched, healthy skin intact promotes faster healing overall.

3. Addresses a Variety of Concerns

Flexibility is perhaps the best feature of the Fraxel® Dual Laser. Because of its variable wavelength settings, it can address multiple problems during just one treatment. Treatment sessions can be completely customized and can use a combination of both wavelengths for a comprehensive approach to your skincare.
