What are Fraxel Lasers?

CO2 laser resurfacing uses the power of carbon dioxide to evaporate the top layers of the skin. These dermis layers tend to show off accumulated damage from the years, usually in the form of sun damage, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, fine lines, and scars. By removing these damaged skin layers, CO2 laser skin resurfacing helps to reveal the glowing skin that’s hiding underneath.

In terms of CO2 laser skin resurfacing treatments, Fraxel remains a popular and trusted brand. In exciting news, Fraxel has added Fraxel Dual laser technology to their line of stellar products, leaving many people wondering:

What’s the Difference with Dual and CO2 Lasers from Fraxel?

The answer lies in what they’re designed to treat. While Fraxel CO2 lasers are excellent at treating a broad range of skin problems, the Fraxel Dual laser is programmed to specifically target and minimize pigmentation. That means if you have brown spots, sun damage, red scars, or any other discoloration of the skin, a course of Fraxel Dual laser treatments can help you achieve smoother, more even-looking skin.

Regardless of whatever treatment you choose to undergo, you should expect to go through 3-5 treatments (spaced 4-8 weeks apart). You should expect to experience redness, slight swelling, and skin sensitivity for the first week after each treatment. Most clients see final results within 3-6 months after their final Fraxel laser treatment.

"WOW! I went into my appointment with a negitive attitude. I have all of my cosmetic procedures done in Europe and have very high standards. Even though I came across skeptical, I was treated with patience and respect. I had PRP and Botox and am so impressed with the quality and results. It is so nice to have a doctor that knows what he’s doing!"

Thank you!!!!!
