Fraxel® DUAL Laser

or to schedule an appointment



The Fraxel® DUAL (1550 and 1927 wavelength) laser treatment is a non-invasive, microscopic laser that penetrates your skin to encourage new collagen and elastin growth. It smooths wrinkles and scars, fades brown spots, and resurfaces your entire skin tone. Unlike really aggressive lasers, Fraxel® DUAL is a fractional skin resurfacing treatment, which means it only targets a fraction of the skin at a time. Fraxel® DUAL treatment improves tone, texture and radiance for ageing, sun-damaged or scarred skin. Specifically, Fraxel® DUAL is for people who want to look younger without dramatic changes or extended downtime.

The Fraxel DUAL laser uses two wavelengths, 1550 and 1927 to address different skin concerns on the face, neck, chest, hands, and legs. The 1927 wavelength, targets skin discolouration conditions such as pigmentation, age spots and pre-cancer spots. At the same time, the 1550 wavelength is designed to target fine lines, wrinkles and scarring, leaving you with a smooth skin texture.

How does the Fraxel® DUAL treatment work?

Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser treatment targets ageing and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodelling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, promoting very rapid healing. Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.

How many treatments do I need?

Clinical studies suggest that an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart on average. However, the proposed protocol depends on your skin condition. The time frame and treatment structure depend on skin healing and new collagen production that replaces the damaged tissue.

Is the procedure painful?

Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. However, to minimise discomfort, topical anaesthesia is applied before the procedure, and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.

What are the benefits of the Fraxel® DUAL treatment?

Smoother, rejuvenated and younger-looking skin. You can expect an improved skin tone and texture. Also, unwanted brown spots, fine lines, and the appearance of visible scars are dramatically reduced after the first session.

All our photographs of before and after treatment results are examples only, and do not constitute an implied or any other kind of guarantee of the result of treatment procedures. Results can vary significantly between our clients. All our treatment results are subject to the individualities of each client.

Furthermore, all treatment procedures carry potential risks and complications which are described in detail in our treatment consent forms. These may include but are not limited to, bleeding, infection, asymmetry, dissatisfaction with the result and the expense of further treatments to manage a complication (patient forms). If you have any questions regarding these potential risks and complications. Please discuss them with our doctors or aesthetic therapist prior to treatments.

Before undergoing a treatment, please be sure that you understand that YOUR actual results will likely VARY SIGNIFICANTLY from other patient’s results, including their BEFORE & AFTER photos.

This is quite important to understand — that EVEN when you feel that you look very similar to another client in their BEFORE images, your results will likely vary significantly — because you are a unique person.  Every individual has NOT only a completely unique physique but also uniquely individualistic body healing capacities, scarring tendencies and recovery processes — some of which are unpredictable even in very-healthy patients who rest adequately and do ALL the other right things before and after their procedure.

Please be noted, our doctors and aesthetic therapists offer you our highest expertise in our aesthetic procedures.
