How does the Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser treatment work?

As we age, the network of collagen and elastin fibers under the superficial layer of the skin known as the epidermis begins to break down faster than our bodies can repair these fibers. This can cause our skin to wrinkle and sag, resulting in that aging skin look. Also, older skin usually develops brown spots and uneven pigmentation, often as a result of exposure to sun.

The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser treatment delivers tiny, microscopic columns of laser light that go deep into the dermis, the layer that contains the collagen and elastin, which lies just under the eipdermis. The laser columns create tiny wounds that stimulate the body's natural formation of collagen and elastin, which creates tighter, fresher, more youthful-looking skin. The laser light only targets a fraction of the skin at a time so that the surrounding tissue is left untouched. This fractional process allows the skin to heal more quickly.

What skin problems can the Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser repair?

The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser is safe for all skin types and all body areas. Patients find the procedure to be comfortable since a topical anesthetic is applied before treatment, and a built-in cooling device is used during and immediately post treatment. Patients can return to their regular routine within a day or two. The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser is effective in treating:

  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Age spots/sunspots
  • Melasma
  • Actinic Keratoses

What are the benefits of the Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser system from Solta Medical?

  • The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser offers an accelerated removal of pigment because the laser targets superficial skin layers.
  • The procedure is more comfortable because of the built-in cooling system during treatment.
  • Multiple body areas can be treated in a single session.
  • The treatment time is improved by 25% because of the optimized scanner design.

What is the Thermage - Fraxel treatment combination?

Thermage and Fraxel are often used together to give patients the best skin rejuvenation possible without surgery. The combined treatments help correct the most significant signs of aging: sagging skin, wrinkles, skin texture, and pigmentation. Thermage works by delivering radiofrequency energy to the deeper layers of the skin, the deeper dermis and the subcutaneous layers. This energy stimulates new collagen growth and helps to contour, firm, and tighten the skin. The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 Laser, on the other hand, works to resurface the dermis and epidermis, which are the outer skin layers. This process helps to even skin pigmentation, smooth the skin surface, improve the appearance of acne and surgical scars, stimulate collagen and elastin formation, and minimize lines and wrinkles. The results are truly amazing!

Testimonial - One Patient's Experience

"When Susan Cummins, the medical esthetician at Radiant Rejuvenation, invited me to try the Fraxel Laser treatment, I didn’t realize how wonderful the results would be! The procedure was comfortable since Susan put a topical anesthetic on my face and used a cooling device during and just after the Fraxel procedure. Only for a couple of hours after the procedure I felt like I had a sunburn, but icing my skin helped a lot, and that feeling quickly went away. While my skin was healing, it felt a little rough and dry and looked tanned. I used moisturizers and a mineral makeup to minimize those effects. Finally by the end of the week, the old skin gradually began to peel away and my new skin was firmer and tighter as well as soft, smooth and even in color. The effects were so amazing that my skin looked like I already had put my makeup on… I almost walked out the door one day without any makeup at all! I had no downtime from the Fraxel procedure and never missed a day of work. I would highly recommend this Fraxel Laser treatment at Radiant Rejuvenation. Susan Cummins is an expert in her field and makes her patients feel comfortable and at ease. And best of all, the 'Wow Effect' from the procedure is amazing!!" JL from Seattle
