WHAT IS FRAXEL DUAL ?
Skin Resurfacing Treatment in Miami Center for Dermatology
For bright and fresh skin, the Fraxel Dual is the perfect resurfacing laser for you! The Fraxel Dual is two lasers in one: the 1927nm wavelength, which allows us to treat superficially and the other, the 1550nm wavelength, targets skin texture . The components can be used together or separately, depending on your skin care needs.
Fraxel Dual is effective on:
- Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
- Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
- Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
- Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
- Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition
Feature Procedure with Machine: Skin Resurfacing
Fraxel Dual laser treatment is designed to target aging and damaged skin well beneath the skin’s outermost layer. In this way, Fraxel Dual triggers the body’s own natural production of new collagen and elastin, yet healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime for patients that have done this procedure at Miami Center for Dermatology. Fraxel Dual is a great choice for skin resurfacing treatment , photo-aging, melasma and other types of pigmentation problems, as well as fine lines, wrinkles and enlarged pores.
Fraxel Dual produces thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment in your skin, known as microthermal treatment zones. This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deep into the dermis. Just as important, though, are the areas of skin the Fraxel Dual laser leaves untouched. For every microthermal zone the laser targets and treats intensively, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tighter tissue.
