Until now, two varieties of laser treatments have been available for cosmetic enhancement – ablative and non-ablative. Traditional ablative, which literally means to vaporize at a very high temperature, are very effective at destroying unwanted tissue but may have significant side effects and require a lengthy healing period. Non-ablative, on the other hand, has very few side effects and require almost no healing time but may involve numerous treatments over many months to achieve only modest results.
The Fraxel® DUAL Laser Treatments are designed to rejuvenate aging and damaged skin by creating microscopic “wounds” within the targeted areas that penetrate well beneath the skin’s outermost layer. In this way, Fraxel DUAL laser treatments trigger the body’s own natural production of new collagen and skin cells. And because the Fraxel DUAL laser treatments combine the impact of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers, healing occurs so quickly that there is very little downtime.
Fraxel DUAL laser treatments effectively address acne scarring, hyper-pigmentation and loss of collagen. Treatments can be individualized to your specific target areas, such as the eyes, face, neck, chest, back, hands and forearms. Individual treatment prices vary from area to area and it is suggested for maximum benefit that 4 treatments be performed.
