If you need skin resurfacing anywhere on the face or body because of unwanted conditions such as scars, lines around the eyes, enlarged pores, age spots, actinic keratosis (precancerous lesions), this US FDA-approved laser treatment, is unique in that it targets both superficial and deep layers of the skin.
The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927nm uses patented fractional technology, meaning that microscopic laser columns penetrate deep and treat only a fraction of tissue at a time. Since it combines 2 treatment modalities, it improves the surface skin texture and tone while causing deep collagen remodelling. Old and damaged cells are replaced by fresh, glowing and healthy skin. You will see continued improvement over 1- 2 months as the deeper layers create new collagen. This treatment can be done for the face as well as other parts of the body, and 4-6 treatments are required at monthly intervals.
After the procedure, a bronzed, sunburned look will last about 2 to 4 days followed by flaking for a few more days, gradually revealing the smoother looking skin.
