Fraxel Dual Laser

What is Fraxel Dual Laser?

The Fraxel Dual Laser is a non-ablative, resurfacing laser in that it targets only the deeper structures of the skin, retaining the top-most layer to keep downtime minimal or close to zero.

How does it work?

The Fraxel Dual Laser treats the skin using two wavelengths:

  1. 1550nm erbium:glass (Er:glass) laser mode penetrates deep into the skin to address wrinkles and acne scars.
  2. 1927nm thullium laser mode addresses problems with skin tone, texture, pigmentation, and other more superficial skin growths or signs of ageing.

Why does Fraxel Dual Laser treatment have less downtime?

The Fraxel Dual Laser resurfaces our skin, removing layers of skin tissue in a “fractionated method”, where columns of skin are removed, leaving the skin surrounding each column intact to aid in healing.

This means that the recovery time from this non-ablative laser would be shorter compared to traditional ablative lasers, which remove a thin outer layer of skin to achieve the desired result.

As a result, the Fraxel Dual Laser:

  1. Promotes new skin growth from inside out
  2. Offers faster healing with less redness and downtime compared to ablative lasers
