Can it be applied to all skin types?

In men and women of any age and skin color. Even in delicate areas such as the neck, chest or hands.

 

How does the Fraxel® Dual Laser work?

The Fraxel® treatment uses a patented fractional technology that incorporates two types of laser in the same equipment.

Erbium Glass laser that treats the deepest layers of the skin.
Thulium laser that works at a more superficial level.
The laser penetrates microscopic columns deep into the damaged skin. At the same time, it treats a fraction of the tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding tissue intact, which favors rapid healing. This system stimulates the body’s natural healing process and replaces damaged cells with new, luminous and healthy skin.

 

When do the results appear and how long do they last?

The results of the treatment are immediate and progressive. Shortly after treatment, the skin’s surface will be smoother, brighter, and even-toned. Over the next 3-6 months, the skin will continue to improve, as the deeper skin layers continue to heal. Results can last for years, depending on age and skin condition.

¿Cuántas sesiones son necesarias?

Depende de la paciente y los objetivos buscados. Por lo general se realizan entre 3 y 6 sesiones cada 3-4 semanas. 

¿Qué se nota durante el tratamiento?

La mayoría de los pacientes describen una sensación de calor cada vez mayor durante el tratamiento. Antes del procedimiento le aplicaremos una pomada anestésica tópica que ayudará a minimizar las molestias.

How long is each session?

It usually lasts between 20 and 30 minutes.

Can I receive a Fraxel® treatment if I have already received other procedures?

Fraxel® procedures are compatible with most cosmetic procedures, such as soft tissue fillers, Thermage® or even botulinum toxin.
