- Frequently Asked Questions about Fraxel® Re:store DUAL
The DUAL system is the latest Fraxel technology for even better results, especially with skin pigments.How is this Fraxel technology different?
Fraxel uses a laser to resurface damaged skin. With this new technology, there are now two laser treatment modes: one specifically treats concerns such as wrinkles or acne scarring that are deeper in the skin layers. The second treatment mode is new and effectively targets sun spots, age spots and tone and texture, which are more superficial.
What are the benefits of the new technology?
This new technology has faster treatment times, increased comfort and an additional treatment mode for pigmentation. The results are comparable to superficial CO2 resurfacing results but without the degree of downtime or wound care. By combining the two treatment modes, you can get more effective resurfacing, treating both deep and superficial conditions.
What can I expect after treatment?
Generally, patients will experience some redness for several days. As your skin heals, you may see bronzing and peeling. There is no wound care, but you may apply moisturizer and sun protection as instructed. After the healing process, you can expect:
– Smoother, fresher and younger looking skin
– Improved tone & texture
– Reduced appearance of unwanted brown spots
What can I expect after the 1927 Thulium treatment?
You will have pinkness and mild swelling for about 3 days. There is no wound care, no dressing. Your skin will feel dry and we encourage you to keep it well hydrated through the healing process. After a few days your skin will bronze and feel rough. It is about to peel at this time, and the peeling will take about 3 days to complete. Your skin will then look very refreshed and pink and will return to its natural color in about 5-10 days. By day 10, you will look like you have make up or powder on because of the beautiful uniform color of your skin.
How long until I see the results?
You may see some results immediately after treatment and after the healing process is complete. Results continue to improve over time and throughout your series of treatments.
How many treatments will I need?
Everyone’s skin is different, but typically patients can expect great results in multiple sessions, depending on your desired outcomes. These sessions are generally spaced 2 to 6 weeks apart.
Can I treat skin on other parts of the body?
With this new technology we can treat multiple areas in a single session. So as well as treating sun spots on your face, we can treat your hands, neck chest, or other areas.
