Fraxel® Dual: The gold standard of laser treatments

Looking for the perfect after-summer solution for dull and sun damaged skin? Well look no further. Our Fraxel® Dual laser treatment features two capabilities built into one, enabling us to treat age spots, sun spots, and those fine lines and wrinkles in just one treatment, making it one of our top picks for Fall procedures.

 How do Fractionated lasers work?

Fractionated lasers have been named the gold standard option of lasers. Fraxel®  Dual is a non-ablative laser that penetrates into the dermis creating the microscopic laser column.  This causes the body’s natural healing response to stimulate, making healthy tissue grow and multiply, while the damaged tissue moves towards the epidermis and is removed from the skin. The laser treats only a fraction of the tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact and promoting rapid healing. By promoting your skins own healing process, the results are natural rejuvenation removing years from your appearance.

Who is this procedure for?

One of the top reasons why we love the Fraxel® Dual at WDC is that it can be customized to each patients needs.  If you’re looking to turn back the hands of time, get rid of those age/sun spots, or help improve scarring from previous acne outbreaks, then Fraxel® Dual may be the procedure for you! With a track record of over 800,000 procedures worldwide, the Fraxel® technology is not only proven safe but effective as well.

How many treatments do you need?

The beauty of the Fraxel® Dual is that you see results after just one treatment!  The number of treatments needed varies on your personal goals and expectations, but for optimal results we typically recommend a series of 4-5 treatments to see more drastic improvements.  Feel free to take advantage of our free consults to determine your customized treatment plan!

If you schedule your first appointment for Fraxel® Dual in October, we are offering a FREE SkinMedica TNS Recovery Complex, a value worth $184, after completing a series of 4 Fraxel treatments.
