  • Actinic Keratoses (precancerous lesions)

  • Reduced lines and wrinkles
  • Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars

How are Fraxel Dual treatments performed?

First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 minutes prior to treatment, a topical numbing agent will be applied to the treatment area. The Fraxel Dual procedure can take as little as 20 minutes. The treatment duration depends on the size of the treatment area and indication being addressed. For an estimate of treatment and appointment time for your concern, please consult a genuine Fraxel provider near you.

Does a Fraxel Dual treatment hurt?

Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimise discomfort, a topical numbing agent 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 treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?

A series of up to five treatments may be recommended, scheduled about 4 weeks apart. However, the exact regimen will depend on your skin goals, skin condition and circumstances. We therefore recommend consulting your Fraxel provider for an individualised treatment regimen that addresses your skin needs and concerns.
Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for complete healing and the production of new collagen and elastin to replace damaged tissue.

What should I expect after a Fraxel Dual treatment?

During the first 24 hours after a treatment, your skin may feel as though it is sunburned, and it will appear pink or red. You can wear make up to reduce the sunburned appearance. Your skin will naturally bronze over the next week or two, and as you continue treatment, the sunburned-to-bronzed appearance will repeat. As with a sunburn, your skin will flake and exfoliate normally. Use a moisturiser to reduce the appearance of dry flakes.

What precautions should I take after a Fraxel Dual treatment?

Avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment by wearing sunscreen of SPF 50 or higher and wearing a wide-brimmed hat when you’re in the sun.

What side effects might occur after a Fraxel Dual treatment and how long will they last?

Swelling and redness are the most common side effects from a Fraxel Dual treatment. Any swelling is typically minimal and subsides within a day or two, and any redness typically fades within a few days. Other temporary side effects may include minor itching, dry skin, peeling or flaking, and a bronzed skin appearance. There is a risk of infection, hyperpigmentation, or scarring. The intensity and duration of side effects depend on the aggressiveness of a treatment and on your particular healing characteristics. Your Fraxel provider will provide specific instructions about what to expect and how to minimise any side effects.

How much does a Fraxel Dual treatment cost?

Treatment pricing will vary depending on individual skin conditions and desired clinical outcomes. Please visit our Provider Finder to find Fraxel Dual providers in your area who can provide accurate pricing information.
