Dual Fraxel Laser Skin Treatment Q & A

What is a Fraxel DUAL laser treatment?

Surgery and invasive procedures treat the signs of aging and scarring but can cause serious side effects and require considerable downtime.

FDA-approved Fraxel laser treatments deliver results that provide a youthful, healthy look, without sutures, blood loss, or a long recovery. This system is safe and effective, especially when compared with older types of lasers.

The Fraxel DUAL system uses two laser wavelengths to treat multiple skin conditions. One frequency delivers healing energy to the outermost layer of your skin, and the other penetrates
at a deeper level. This laser treatment works on all skin types and tones.

When Dr. Ahdoot applies the laser energy to your skin, it stimulates your body’s natural healing process to stimulate the growth of new skin and collagen (a natural compound that your body produces, giving your skin strength and elasticity).

Who is a candidate for Fraxel DUAL treatment?

Your skin may look tired, dull, and aged due to long-term exposure to the sun, air pollution, stress, fatigue, and cigarette smoke. Additionally, as you age, your skin naturally becomes increasingly lax and wrinkled. If you relate to either of those statements, you’re a likely candidate for DUAL wavelength laser treatments.

This dermatological treatment is appropriate for treating numerous skin irregularities:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Acne and surgical scarring
  • Poor skin texture
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Pigmentation and skin tone issues, like sun damage and melasma
  • Actinic keratosis

How many Fraxel DUAL laser sessions do I need?

You’re likely to get the best results in one to four sessions, and each lasts about 30 minutes. Dr. Ahdoot creates a customized plan for your skin’s particular condition and your aesthetic goals.

What are the side effects of Fraxel DUAL laser treatment?

You may experience skin redness and swelling immediately after a session. Some women claim that the after-effects feel like a sunburn.

These relatively mild side effects indicate your body is healing and effectively creating new skin and collagen. Expect no scabs or incisions that require post-treatment healing.

Most likely, you can return to your regular activities within a few hours of treatment. If you have very aggressive treatment, you may need to lay low for four to five days.

When your skin shows signs of aging and sun damage, consider Fraxel DUAL laser treatment as an effective, noninvasive option. Call Cosmetic Laser Center of Irvine or book an appointment online to learn more about this revolutionary treatment.
