FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How does Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatment work?


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




What precautions should I take after Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatment?


Wear a broad spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you're in the sun.




What is the downtime after a Fraxel® laser treatment?


Depending on the area treated, you can expect 3-5 days downtime. Immediately after your Fraxel® treatment, your skin will be red, similar to sunburn. This may last a few days and you may also experience some swelling. Your skin will peel, which of course is a sign that the treatment is working. If pigmentation is present on the skin, this may darken soon after treatment and last a few days until it flakes away revealing smoother, clearer skin.




How long do the positive effects of Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatment last?


It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.




Does Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatment hurt?


Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia 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.




How many Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatment do I need and how will they be spaced?


Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for healing and the production of new collagen to replace damaged tissue.




How many Fraxel® treatments are needed?


The specific number of treatments will be discussed in your initial consultation. Your doctor will tailor your treatment plan to your goals and desired results, as well as your lifestyle. Some clients see results after just one treatment whilst others see exceptional results after a course of five.




How are Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatments performed?


First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 minutes prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area. The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face.




What FDA clearances has Fraxel dual 1550/1927 treatment received?


  • Wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles)

  • Surgical scars
  • Age spots/sunspots (pigmented lesions)
  • Melasma (irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose)
