What is Fraxel Dual Laser?
The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 treatment uses patented fractional laser technology to target aging and sun damaged skin.
How does it work?
Fraxel Dual laser has the unique advantage of two treatment modes,
1550nm: It penetrates deep into the skin layers, specifically targeting concerns such as skin tone, skin texture like pores and scars. With collagen stimulation, it can tighten the skin too.
1927nm: It effectively targets skin tone, skin dyschromia, skin epidermal and dermal pigmentation.
It works by creating microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into the skin to expedite body’s collagen remodelling. Since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes rapid healing.
