What is Fraxel DUAL?
Fraxel lasers are fractionated laser devices that work by creating micro injuries in the skin to trigger the body to regenerate cells and boost collagen production. This healing process results in skin that is clearer, smoother, and more youthful as sun damage and pigmentation irregularities are addressed. Fractional lasers offer the advantage of working superficially and/or deeply into the dermal structure of the skin while leaving surrounding skin and tissue intact. The result is dramatic improvement to the skin with little or no downtime after treatment.

How Does Fraxel DUAL Work?
Fraxel Dual uses two different wavelengths to address skin rejuvenation. The Erbium 1550 nm wavelength helps stimulate the cells that make collagen and elastic fibers in the skin’s dermis. The Thulium laser is a superficial laser that has a 1927 nm wavelength, allowing for precise targeting of troublesome pigmented areas, leaving more surrounding tissue unharmed.
What sets the Fraxel Dual laser apart from its competitors is its ability to harness the efficacy of ablative treatments with the safety of non-ablative treatments. Its two settings — the 1927 and 1550 wavelengths — target different areas of the skin for comprehensive rejuvenation with minimal downtime.
The first setting utilizes a 1927 wavelength that carefully removes and rejuvenates the surface layer of the skin, which routinely incurs damage from the sun, cosmetics, and other environmental and lifestyle factors. By gently clearing away this damaged layer, the Fraxel Dual reveals the new, non-damaged skin underneath, reducing the appearance of sun damage and irregular hyperpigmentation.
Meanwhile, the 1550 wavelength setting treats fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars by stimulating collagen production in the deeper layers of the dermis. This essential protein keeps your skin firm and responsive. With a Fraxel Dual treatment, your strengthened collagen fibers can improve the appearance of lines and scars.
