The Fraxel Dual laser is one of the most common lasers you will find in a dermatologist’s office. They are excellent for improving most skin issues, which include everything from mild to moderate scarring to hyperpigmentation and wrinkles. Fraxel Dual lasers remove the outermost layer of skin to reveal the bright, healthy, and glowing skin below. Fraxel Dual is especially effective against textured acne scarring, which typically does not respond well to topical therapies.
The Fraxel Dual laser features two separate wavelengths of light. One targets hyperpigmentation and sun damage, but the other digs deeper into the skin to create controlled wounds and stimulate the production of collagen. In turn, as the skin produces more collagen, deep scarring and wrinkles begin to improve.
The Fraxel Dual treatment creates a prickling sensation that can be described as mildly uncomfortable rather than painful. You will need three to five days of recovery time, during which your skin will be red and may even peel.
