Fraxel Dual: Turning back the hands of time

We’ve been focusing on treating after summer sun damage, and what better way to do that than our Fraxel Dual laser!  Fraxel has been around for some time now, but if you aren’t familiar with what it does, then let us give you the scoop on everything we love about our Fraxel laser.

Fraxel has been known as a revolutionary laser treatment because not only does it renew the skin’s surface, but it can actually reverse the signs of aging! Fractal is effective in treating:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
  • Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
  • Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition

One of our favorite things about our Fraxel Dual is that you can treat multiple things in only 1 treatment. This laser encompasses a dual platform that holds two lasers in one. The 1550 setting is a deeper, more aggressive setting addressing the scarring and wrinkles while the 1927 is designed to address the pigmentation. Having both options available at one time enables Wilmington Dermatology professionals to customize treatment plans for specific needs. If you want to target the pigmentation changes, but would also love (I mean who wouldn’t) to get rid of those fine lines and wrinkles, then this is the laser for you!   While it does have some downtime associated with it, it’s a great kickoff to revamping your skin in the Fall months.  Results from the Fraxle Dual are natural, yet effective in helping you look as young as you feel.

If you think you may be interested in finding out more about the Fraxel and our other laser treatments.  Join us on September 30th for another lunchtime learning event featuring all of the different laser treatments WDC offers to help reverse the damage to our skin caused by the sun. The event will be held from 12:00-1:00pm. RSVP to reserve your spot today!
