Laser Therapy

Non-ablative Skin Resurfacing (Fraxel Dual)

For the treatment of :  Fine lines and wrinkles, surface scars (eg acne, etc), pigmented skin lesions and spots, sun damage and precancerous spots (actinic keratoses)…over the face, hands and body.

Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 is a safe and effective skin treatment involving a non-ablative laser. The superficial and deep layers are targeted without breaking the skin surface.  Intact skin leads to a more rapid recovery than normally seen following an ablative type of laser treatment.

The Fraxel Dual 1550/1927 has the advantage of providing two separate treatment options:

  • The laser 1550 : This laser deeply penetrates the skin and targets problems such as wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars and stretch marks.
  • The laser 1927 : This laser targets superficial skin problems such as sun damage and age spots.  It improves skin texture, and clarity.  It may be used to treat precancerous skin lesions (Actinic keratoses) and reduce any accumulated sun damage on the skin.

Recovery time depends on what laser we use.  The choice and number of treatments you need depends on your desired result and how much down time (recovery time) you have available.  We will discuss the options with you during your consultation.
