Fraxel Dual Q & A

What is Fraxel Dual?

The Fraxel Dual is a non-invasive fractional laser treatment that works on two wavelengths to improve the appearance of aging and damaged skin with minimal discomfort and quick results. The Fraxel Dual treatment stimulates collagen renewal, improves tone and texture, reduces fine lines, wrinkles, and brown spots, and improves the appearance of acne scars. Suitable for all ages and skin colors, Fraxel can be used to treat multiple areas including the face, neck, chest, and hands. Fraxel Dual can also be used to treat small areas such as the nose.

What is Fraxel Dual resurfacing?

Fraxel Dual 1550nm/1927nm resurfacing laser treatments target both the superficial and deep layers of the skin to provide a smoother and more youthful appearance. 

It can be used on almost all areas of the body. Olivia tailors treatments to your individual needs. More than one treatment may be necessary to achieve desired outcomes.

What can Fraxel Dual resurfacing do for my skin?

The Fraxel laser system:

  • Improves skin tone and texture
  • Erases unwanted brown spots and photodamage
  • Reduces and improves the appearance of wrinkles, acne scars, and surgical scars

If you have other skin concerns, Olivia can assess them and decide whether Fraxel resurfacing is the best mode of treatment. You can also choose to undergo a few sessions of Fraxel laser treatment to give your skin a fresh, flawless finish.

What is the recovery process like after Fraxel Dual resurfacing treatments?

After your Fraxel treatment, you notice some improvements right away. However, you might also experience some side effects in the days following the treatment, such as:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Dryness
  • Flakiness
  • Bronzy skin

These and other side effects are usually mild and go away quickly. 

Am I a good candidate for the Fraxel Dual resurfacing?

The Fraxel Dual 1550nm/1927nm laser works on all ages and skin types, tones, and textures, so it’s safe for anyone. Olivia develops a personalized treatment plan to meet your skin quality goals. 

The treatment is most successful when you keep your skin out of the sun for the first three months after your session. Olivia gives you further suggestions for aftercare that are catered to your needs, but individual results will vary from person to person.
