Fraxel Dual®: The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 is a revolutionary laser system designed to achieve remarkable improvements in skin hyperpigmentation and texture with little or no downtime. It is used to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, chest, hands, arms and legs.The Fraxel Dual is really two lasers in one, an advancement over the original Fraxel. It utilizes two different wavelengths – 1550 and 1927. The 1927 wavelength targets mild to moderate sun damage, brown spots, blotchy uneven skin tone and fine lines, skin issues that typically start in people in their 30s and 40s. The 1550 wavelength works on more severe sun damage, skin texture changes, deeper wrinkles and even scars that are typically seen in the aging skin of clients in their 50s and beyond. And in people with a combination of these skin issues, both wavelengths of the Fraxel Dual can be used in one treatment session, thus tailoring the treatment to the client’s needs.
The Fraxel Dual targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin and cause remodeling of the skin’s collagen. And because the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which leads to very rapid healing and greatly decreased recovery time. The result is that clients have minimal downtime after their Fraxel Dual treatments and can quickly go back to their daily routines. This is unlike the deep ablative lasers of the past, which could give results comparable to those of the Fraxel Dual, but left clients with weeks to months of post-treatment recovery time.
And the most exciting thing about the Fraxel Dual is the results. With only a few treatments (2-6 depending upon the extent of each individual client’s skin damage), clients can expect to have softer, brighter, more even skin tone with marked reduction of brown spots and significantly improved texture and wrinkles. And with the care and advice from your dermatologist, these results can be long-lasting.
If you are looking for a treatment that will remarkably improve your skin’s tone and texture, and perhaps have tried other procedures without significant results, schedule a consultation with NicholsMD of Greenwich today and see if the Fraxel Dual is right for you.
