FRAXEL® DUAL LASER
IMPROVING SKIN IN LOS ANGELES
The Fraxel® DUAL laser at the Los Angeles area's Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills improves on the practice's longtime use of Fraxel® technology by offering two benefits for patients: It targets the skin's surface while also impacting deeper layers to provide a comprehensive rejuvenation.
A Fraxel® treatment is a non-invasive procedure that can focus on improving tone and texture, reducing the appearance of brown spots, and more. When you visit our office for Fraxel® DUAL Laser, you will undergo an assessment prior to starting any treatment plan. We may recommend one of the two Fraxel DUAL® laser modes, or even a combination of them both.
FRAXEL® DUAL LASER EXPLAINED
The light energy from a Fraxel® DUAL laser is designed to travel deep into the skin, penetrating the surface as a group of microscopic energy columns. These columns—each surrounded by a larger area of untouched skin—trigger natural repair processes by stimulating collagen, which gradually fills out lines, dents, and divots, reducing their appearance. Simply put, the Fraxel® treatment promotes your skin's own healing efforts, resulting in natural rejuvenation that can remove years from your appearance.*
Some results will be visible after one treatment, but multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve the desired effect. Note that just after the treatments, your skin may appear red and exhibit some swelling, similar to the look and feel of a sunburn. This typically resolves in several days, if not sooner. As the old, treated skin flakes away, fresher, healthier-looking skin will be revealed.
The revitalized look can be long-lasting, though the duration depends on a mix of factors, including age, lifestyle, and ongoing skin care. Talk to the Skin Care & Laser Physicians of Beverly Hills team about the best options for maintaining fresh-looking skin both at home and with ongoing treatments from an experienced dermatologist.
WHAT CAN FRAXEL® DUAL LASER TREAT?
Between its two modes, Fraxel® DUAL laser can accomplish quite a bit:
- reduction of wrinkles around the eyes
- acne or surgical scar improvement
- tone and texture improvement
- actinic keratosis treatment
- brown spot reduction
Fraxel® DUAL laser treatments can be used to improve the appearance of skin on the face and neck, chest, arms and legs, and back.
MORE OPTIONS FOR SKIN REJUVENATION
Patients looking to reduce the appearance of scars, improve skin tone, and more may also consider microneedling. Like the Fraxel® DUAL laser, it creates incredibly small injuries in the skin to stimulate collagen production, but microneedling uses small, thin needles instead of laser energy to create the columns. This treatment can also be paired with PRP (platelet-rich plasma) to further boost its effects.
