Later in the year, the Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills team welcomed some new technology to the practice: Fraxel® DUAL. While the Fraxel® laser technology has long been on the menu of services, DUAL represents a step forward with its two primary benefits (as the name implies). Actually, it may better be described as a laser that focuses on two elements of the skin: the surface and below.
Since laser light can penetrate the surface, delivering heat energy to deeper layers, Fraxel® DUAL works as a multi-purpose treatment by creating tiny columns in the skin. The skin’s natural repair response kicks in to address each small channel by triggering new collagen growth. This structurally supportive molecule not only heals the miniscule injuries made intentionally by the laser, it improves the surrounding skin, too. Wrinkles and blemishes can smooth out and fade, leading to younger, healthier-looking skin.
While a single treatment is generally enough to begin to generate results, most patients find that the results they want appear after multiple treatment sessions, with the look of the skin improving more on each subsequent visit. Though it’s not a magic wand that freezes time, Fraxel® DUAL gives patients a fresh start, which can best be maintained by staying hydrated, getting plenty of rest, eating well, exercising regularly, and generally following a healthy lifestyle plan.
Fraxel® DUAL is just one of numerous laser- and light-based treatments available at Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills. Contact the practice by calling 310-246-0495 or visiting the Contact Us page to learn more about this and other options, or to set up a consultation.Written by Dr. Derek Jones
