Do you wish that you could slow down the effects of aging on your looks? Are you searching for a way to minimize the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles? Have you tried the various anti-aging creams, masks, serums, etc. without any positive results? If you’ve answered yes to these questions, then Fraxel® DUAL may be your solution. Keep reading below to learn how the Fraxel® DUAL Laser can rejuvenate your skin.
What is Fraxel® DUAL?
Fraxel® DUAL laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. As the name implies, there are two wavelengths that can be used during this procedure: 1550 and 1927 nm. Dr. Krant will use either one or both of the wavelengths, depending on the patient’s needs. The laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.
What to expect with Fraxel® DUAL
Fraxel® DUAL procedures usually last between 10 and 20 minutes. Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. Dr. Krant will apply a numbing cream to the area being treated in order to reduce any discomfort.
There is no downtime after treatment with Fraxel® DUAL, which means you can return to work and any other normal activities, including exercise, immediately following your appointment. Patients typically report only minor side effects, such as the sensation of a “light sunburn” immediately afterward, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.
The Fraxel® DUAL laser procedure is the perfect solution for people who want their skin to look younger, but can’t afford a lot of time away from work or their social life. Plus, Dr. Krant offers her patients a free post-laser recovery facial 48 hours after their Fraxel® DUAL laser treatment!
