What is a Fraxel Laser?

The Fraxel® Dual laser is a fractionated laser device that creates micro-injuries in the skin to trigger the body’s production of collagen and elastic fibers while stimulating cell renewal. This healing process results in skin that is clearer, smoother, and more youthful.

Fractional lasers offer the advantage of working superficially or deeply into the dermal structure of the skin while leaving surrounding skin and tissue intact. Because the device only treats a fraction of the skin at one time, we can achieve dramatic improvement with less downtime after treatment.

What is Restore Dual?

The Fraxel Dual combines two different wavelengths to address skin rejuvenation:

  • Erbium 1550 nm wavelength – stimulates the production of collagen and elastic fibers. This wavelength is effective in addressing fine lines and wrinkles, as well as uneven skin tone and texture.
  • Thulium 1927 nm wavelength – targets troublesome pigmented areas, making it an excellent choice for brown spots. This laser also addresses fine lines and other signs of sun damage.

How Fraxel Non-Ablative Laser Resurfacing Works

infographic about how Fraxel laser treatments work in San Diego, CAWhat 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. 

1927 Wavelength

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. 

1550 Wavelength

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 in a matter of weeks. 

Areas that Can be Treated

The Fraxel Dual repairs damage in your dermis without harming the surrounding healthy tissue, which allows it to effectively treat several areas of your body, including the:

  • Face
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Arms 
  • Hands
  • Back and shoulders

The treatment can also reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars on the arms, hips, or abdomen.

Conditions Fraxel Dual Treats

This versatile device treats numerous skin issues in one or two sessions. Skin conditions addressed include: 

  • Fine lines and deeper wrinkles
  • Scarring (including acne scars)
  • Uneven texture
  • Brown spots and other sun damage
  • Melasma
  • Uneven skin tone

Benefits of Fraxel Dual

Fraxel Dual offers a myriad of benefits for our patients, including: 

  • Full results in one or two sessions
  • Minimal downtime
  • Ability to treat both irregular pigmentation and fine wrinkles
  • Supports cell rejuvenation
  • Stimulates collagen production
  • Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin
  • Minimal pain with the use of topical anesthetic cream

To make the skin resurfacing procedure even safer and more comfortable, the Fraxel Dual has a focal cooling technique that minimizes pain during the procedure. This dual Fraxel laser is gentle and safe enough for both the face and the body, and both wavelengths can be combined into one treatment session. Treatment is very tolerable.

Our doctors will help you understand the differences between the treatments to ensure you choose the best Fraxel laser treatment for you.

Fraxel Dual For Asian Skin

What to Expect

How to Prepare for Treatment

Though Fraxel Dual treatments are safe and require minimal downtime, there are still necessary steps you should take to prepare:

Schedule A Consultation

During your consultation at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego, CA, share your concerns and aesthetic goals with your doctor. This initial meeting gives your board-certified dermatologist a clearer idea of which areas to treat, how many treatments you need and allows them to identify any medical challenges that might interfere with your recovery.

Minimize Sun Exposure

Reducing time spent in the sun before and after Fraxel laser treatments is essential, as ultraviolet (UV) rays can exacerbate hyperpigmentation. When you are in the sun, make sure to apply sunscreen that contains SPF 30+.

Treatment at Our San Diego Medical Spa

A Fraxel Dual treatment is relatively quick and comfortable, thanks to topical numbing cream that is applied before the procedure. A handheld applicator is moved across the skin’s surface to deliver laser energy into the skin. Multiple passes ensure the skin is treated evenly to produce a consistent result. Integrated cooling keeps the skin at a comfortable level throughout the treatment.

Recovery

Recovery after a Fraxel Dual treatment typically involves redness and swelling during the first 2-3 days, followed by 2-3 days of skin flaking. You may want to take 2-3 days of social downtime until the appearance of your skin improves, although this varies from patient to patient. We will recommend professional skin care products to use at home that will promote healing and enhance your results.

Results

One treatment can result in noticeably clearer skin within 7-10 days, although improvements will likely continue for 3-6 months. The duration of your results depends on your specific concerns, goals, and skincare routine. Most patients enjoy rejuvenated skin for several years after a Fraxel Dual treatment. Some patients also find that a second treatment further enhances the results and can be performed as early as 4 weeks after the first session.

FAQs

Q: Who Is A Good Candidate For The Fraxel Re:store Dual Treatment?

A:

Candidates for Fraxel Restore Dual in San Diego include people who want to diminish the appearance of brown pigmentation and hyperpigmentation on their skin using a minimally invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime. The Fraxel Restore Dual treatment may require multiple treatment sessions, however, the process yields results that can be seen both instantly and gradually over time.

Q: How Does The Fraxel Re:store Dual Treatment Work?

A:

A: The Fraxel Re:store Dual is a unique and revolutionary laser treatment that combines two lasers into one! One laser wavelength is extremely effective in reducing the appearance of brown spots and hyperpigmentation. A second laser wavelength goes deep into the skin to promote new and healthy skin cell growth. Fraxel Re:store Dual is a fractional treatment, meaning that the laser targets one portion of skin tissue at a time and does not affect the surrounding tissue. Unlike other methods to treat brown spots, Fraxel Re:store Dual for brown spots is a less invasive procedure that requires little to no downtime for recovery.

Q: How Long Will My Procedure Take?

A:

The amount of treatment time will depend on the size of your treatment area and whether you choose to have numbing cream applied before your procedure. Most patients are in and out of our office within one hour or less.

Q: How Many Treatments Will I Need?

A:

Patients often see best results after a series of treatment sessions. However, the right plan for you will depend on the severity of your skin issues and the results you hope to achieve. Improvement occurs after every session.

Q: When Will I See Results?

A:

Patients often see improvement in their skin once the side effects subside. However, your full outcome may not be apparent for up to six months as the skin continues to heal itself at a cellular level and collagen levels increase.

Fraxel Alternatives

fraxel alternative treatment results

While Fraxel Dual is an excellent choice for many patients, it is not right for everyone. With more than 50 laser and energy devices, we can customize your treatments with the precision necessary to achieve an optimal outcome. Our world-renowned team of dermatology specialists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego can provide more information about alternatives for Fraxel Restore Dual, including:

Pico Second Lasers

Pico lasers like PicoSure, PicoWay, and PicoQo4 deliver rapid pulses that shatter melanin to treat hyperpigmentation without damaging surrounding skin. They are also a popular choice for removing tattoos.

RF Microneedling

RF microneedling devices work in a similar fashion to a Fraxel laser, but instead of the laser creating the micro-channels, the process is done by tiny needles. Radiofrequency energy is administered into the channels, gently heating the tissue to promote collagen production. RF microneedling is an effective option for acne scarring and can be used on nearly any skin tone.

Active/DeepFX

This laser platform features fractional skin resurfacing that can treat deeper wrinkles as well as pigmentation issues. Active FX treats more superficial concerns, while Deep FX is a good choice for deeper wrinkles and acne scarring. Total FX combines the two wavelengths for comprehensive correction and rejuvenation.

Fraxel Re:pair

Fraxel Re:pair ™ (or Fraxel repair) is an effective fractional treatment for wrinkles, age spots, sunspots, sun-induced redness, scars other skin irregularities. Most patients only need one treatment.

ResurFX

The ResurFX system is a non-ablative photo-fractional laser that penetrates deep into the skin to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, scars, and uneven tone and texture while brightening dull complexions.
