You do a lot to look and feel great, finding the time to enjoy life to the fullest while still taking care of your body and skin. Yet, the effects of sun, pollution, stress and fatigue can add up, keeping your skin from looking as good as you feel.
The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target ageing and sun damaged skin.
The Fraxel Dual Laser has the unique advantage of two treatment modes:
1550: penetrates deep into the skin layers, specifically targeting concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring.
1927: effectively targets tone, texture, and other more superficial signs of ageing
Your treatment will be tailored to your desired outcomes and can even be combined so that you receive the added benefits of both a superficial and deep laser treatment, both on and off the face.
“The Fraxel treatment is a non-ablative laser skin procedure that can resurface damaged skin and uncover the youthful skin you long for.”
How does it work?
Fraxel treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue untouched, which promotes rapid healing. This stimulates your body’s own natural healing process, replacing the old and damaged cells with fresh, glowing, healthy skin.
When do the results appear, and how long do they last?
The results are both immediate and progressive. Soon after the treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and smoother, look brighter and show a more even tone. The next 3 to 6 months will bring more improvement as the deeper layers of the skin continue to create new collagen. Results are long lasting depending on your lifestyle, age, skin condition and skin care regimen.
How many treatments are required?
Desired outcomes are typically reached in multiple treatments. The specific number of treatments are tailored to your goals and desired results as well as your lifestyle. We will work with you to identify the appropriate level of treatment and your preferred downtime.
What you should expect after the treatment
Depending on the level of the treatment, you may experience redness or swelling after the procedure which diminishes as quickly as the next day or over the next several days. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two. As you continue with treatment sessions, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat after each treatment. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally, revealing fresher, glowing and smoother looking and feeling skin.
Is it safe?
Fraxel treatment is an option backed by years of extensive research. Of course, as with any laser procedure there’s always some risk* and/or downtime.
