What is the Fraxel Dual Laser?

Fraxel laser keeps the top layer of the skin (stratum corneum) intact without removing it but can reach the underlying skin layers to stimulate collagen production, rejuvenate the skin, and provide skin tightening.

The Fraxel laser resurfacing machine uses two wavelengths:

The two different wavelengths target two different lesions, namely wrinkles and pigmentation. The first wavelength uses 1550 nm and targets the dermis for skin tightening and wrinkles reduction, while the second wavelength uses 1927 nm to target the pigmentation lesions. Both wavelengths have water molecules as chromophore that absorbs the photon energy of the laser.

Deep mode = 1550 nm laser

  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
  • Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars.

Superficial mode = 1927 nm laser

  • Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin
  • Pigmentation and Melasma treatment
  • Effective treatment of precancerous lesions

What results should I expect?

The treatment downtime for patients is usually between three to seven days. Patients may experience some immediate discomfort in the form of swelling, redness, and pinpoint bleeding. Patients may also experience swelling and redness, itching acne, and/or cold sores.

How to care for skin after Fraxel treatment

Treat the affected area in the same way a sunburn would be treated. Apply moisturizer and ice packs to help make the after-treatment more comfortable. A thin layer of Vaseline may be applied to protect and moisturize the treated skin. Please allow the skin to naturally peel, do not scrub or use exfoliating products. Keep away from any irritants such as harsh detergents and/or coarse cloths.

The first week after Fraxel

During the first week after treatment try to avoid alcohol, sun exposure, intensive exercise, and swimming ( pool water might have some harsh chemicals). Once the peeling process is complete it is fine to use Retin A and glycolic acid products again. We advise applying a PRP mask directly after the treatment to provide the best results with less downtime.

Using 30+ SPF sunscreen is very important to minimize long-term side effects. Apply sunscreen 20 minutes before going out and reapply another layer directly before going out. We also recommend using a hat during the first two weeks. Ensure moisturizing creams are not too oily. For more information about before and after treatments, please click  here

What do Fraxel lasers treat?

most patients come into her office seeking Fraxel laser acne scars treatments for three reasons: hyperpigmentation or sun damage, wrinkles, and acne scarring. People most commonly have lasers applied to their whole faces, but the neck, décolletage, hands, and arms are also popular areas to treat.

fractional laser

Engineered to curtail downtime, fractional lasers hit the skin in a pixelated pattern, with some columns receiving a dose of light, and others going untouched. Picosecond devices deliver varying intensities of energy across the skin, "creating a vibration [rather than heat], which triggers cell signaling and the production of new collagen,"

ablative laser

Patients and doctors commonly compare the sensation felt during laser treatments to a rubber band snapping against the skin. However, what laser resurfacing feels like depends on the laser, the depth and area of treatment, and an individual’s tolerance for pain.

Deeper ablative (some outer layers of skin are removed) laser treatments may require local anesthetic injections or intravenous sedation to keep a patient comfortable. Examples of ablative lasers are CO2 lasers and Erbium YAG lasers.

Some non-ablative laser treatments (the laser passes through the skin without removing layers) cause little-to-no pain and require only a topical numbing cream to offset discomfort. Non-ablative lasers include pulsed-dye. Following the procedure, some degree of tenderness in the treatment area can be expected. Your provider will recommend safe ways to control discomfort after laser resurfacing when necessary.
