Dual Fraxel Laser Technology
Fraxel is a proven laser technology which has been used to reverse the effects of aging. The change offered by Fraxel isn’t drastic or alarming; you will remain yourself but look a lot younger. Fraxel technologies focus on fine lines, wrinkles, sun burns, skin pigmentation, and actinic keratosis, a condition mostly associated with the onset of cancer.
What Dual Fraxel can accomplish
Fraxel technology is an almost flawless laser skin resurfacing procedure that works from deep inside the skin to eradicate skin issues such as fine lines, photo aging, wrinkles, scars and age spots. Fraxel light beam sensitizes the operation of your natural collagen tissues, enhancing the skin cells below the surface to eradicate pockets and creases occurring due to old age or scarring. This technology works in the targeted spots, therefore provides effective skin remediation in the predetermined areas.
How Dual Fraxel technology works
Step 1: “Smart Scanning”
You esthetician will use a hand-held laser device to scan the area to ensure safety and consistency.
Step 2: Penetration
The Fraxel technology utilizes fractional lasers to penetrate through the top tissues of the skin.
Step 3: Light Stimulation
A beam of safe light through the lasers to induce the production of collagen. The Clear and Brilliant laser is a preventive laser treatment to prevent aging. Fraxel Dual, on the other hand, performs both prevention and correction of skin fine lines and scars. The latter treatment method targets outer layers of the dermis where pigmentation, sunburns, and spots usually occur.
Step 4: Natural Collagen Stimulation
After the laser treatment, the natural production of collagen is enhanced leading to the resurfacing of the outer layer of your skin. As a result, the wrinkles and scars will be smoothened out and the gaps/pockets filled with fresh collagen tissue.

Special Considerations, Possible Side Effects and Recovery
It is imperative to note that Fraxel treatment procedure lasts only 15 to 45 minutes. The procedure is quite painless hence no anesthesia or analgesics are needed. The Fraxel treatment is delivered in fractions to the affected skin area. Your dermatologist will determine the appropriate coverage and intensity for your condition.
An average treatment may cover a range of 15 to 20% of the skin. That is meant to shorten the down time after the procedure. The results start to appear after 1 to 5 Fraxel treatment sessions based on statistics from several patients.
Some customers have also witnessed mild side effects such as swelling and redness in the treated areas. The extent of swelling depends on the depth and coverage of your treatment. However, such occurrences are no cause for alarm because they are normal body reactions to the changes after treatment. Swellings and redness should subside in less than two days.
Other people may also experience dryness of skin, flaking, peeling, or a bronzed look. Those are effects of exposure to laser energy. However, cases of infection from this procedure are very minimal.
