With Fraxel®, NYC patients can experience long-lasting improvement in the overall appearance of their skin without the downtime associated with traditional laser surfacing procedures. The Fraxel® Dual laser can be used to rejuvenate the skin of the face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs, and is designed to improve overall pigmentation and brown spots, sun damage, fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, and scars from acne.
How Fraxel® Helps
The Fraxel® Dual laser is equipped with two distinct settings, which means that you actually have two lasers in one. The 1927 wavelength is a state-of–the-art Thulium laser that allows us to remove pigmentation, age spots, and sun damage from the top layer of the skin quickly, evenly and painlessly.
The erbium component of the Fraxel® Dual laser utilizes the 1550 wavelength to improve skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. The Erbium technology focuses the energy in the deeper areas of the skin, stimulating new collagen production. The new collagen that is produced ultimately improves the fine lines, wrinkles, skin texture, and scars.
If you have questions about Fraxel®, we encourage you to read our Fraxel® FAQs to see what common questions we get about the treatment and the results that it can achieve.
Depending on your needs, whether it be overall sun damage, acne scars, sun damage, or wrinkles, Dr. Green can customize a treatment protocol just for you. We can use either the 100% Thulium laser to treat brown pigmentation or the 100% Erbium to treat primarily fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and textures. Dr. Green often uses a balanced treatment with both Thulium and Erbium for more comprehensive results. The beauty of the Fraxel® Dual is that it can be tailor-made for each individual treatment for your unique needs.
Fraxel® delivers amazing results with almost no down time. Overall pigmentation and age spots can be treated with as little as one or two treatments. The result is beautiful, luminous skin. Treating fine lines, scars, and wrinkles, generally require four to five treatments at monthly intervals. The results are overall improvement in skin tone, texture, fine lines, and a younger-looking appearance.
If you’re frustrated with the appearance of your skin tone or texture, or want to minimize the early signs of aging that have appeared, there’s finally a solution that can help, without the downtime of other laser resurfacing procedures. Dr. Michele S. Green, a board certified dermatologist on the Upper East Side, practices the latest techniques at the forefront of skin care to give you the look that you deserve.
