How we use the Fraxel Dual laser

We'll prepare your skin before we start the laser treatment, and we can apply a topical numbing agent if you're especially worried about experiencing potential discomfort. Then we'll use the laser to treat your skin concern. Treatments generally last no longer than an hour.

Before we commence treatment, we'll assess your skin. In an initial consultation, we'll use our Clinical Imaging Technology to view your skin through different filters. We look for things like pigmentation, scarring, and broken capillaries.

Who we use it on

Fractional resurfacing uses two different wavelengths (1927nm and 15550nm) for the treatment of different skin concerns.

The 1927nm wavelength is used primarily to treat skin concerns such as skin pigmentation, sun damage, and improving skin quality. The 1550nm wavelength is primarily used for the treatment of acne scarring, other forms of scarring, and stretch marks.

Gold standard fractionated technology

Using fractionated technology, the Fraxel Dual laser sends microscopic laser columns into targeted areas of your skin to stimulate collagen production.

It targets only a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving the surrounding area intact, so your skin heals more quickly than other it would after other laser treatments.

How to prepare for Fraxel Dual laser treatment

You'll need to avoid using Aspirin or other forms of blood thinning medication the day before, and of, your treatment. You'll also need to avoid sun exposure and waxing your skin for two weeks prior to your appointment.

On the day of your treatment, wear comfortable clothes and wash your face clean of makeup. We recommend bringing a hat to wear home afterwards so you can avoid sun exposure.

How to look after your skin post-treatment

After your treatment, you'll need to avoid sun exposure for four weeks, and wear SPF sun cream. If you experience minor swelling, redness, or itchiness in the treated area, you can ice your skin for 10 minutes every hour for the next five to six hours.

You'll also need to avoid going to the gym or saunas, and stay away from spas for 24 hours. Any side effects you experience will subside within a few days. But if you're concerned, reach out to our dermal clinicians and we'll answer any questions you have.

How will my skin feel post-treatment?

Your skin may feel tight, like you've been in the sun slightly too long. This feeling usually goes away within a day of receiving your treatment.

How long will it take to see the positive effects of Fraxel Dual laser treatment?

All in all, it will take a week for your skin to return to feeling like 'normal'. During the first two days, you may experience minor redness, throbbing, and swelling. Between day three and five, your skin will feel slightly rough, as the new skin cells grow and the old ones shed away. Once your skin has finished peeling, you'll look fresh-faced and glowing.

Does Fraxel Dual hurt?

Fraxel Dual treatments don't hurt as much as say, waxing. You are likely to feel a gentle prickling sensation. The skin on your face will be numbed before treatment, meaning that you will barely feel a thing.

How much does Fraxel Dual cost?

Fraxel Dual treatment costs are dependent on just how involved your treatment is. Longer, more intense treatments for scarring will cost more than simple treatments of pigmentation. For an exact quote on costs for your Fraxel Dual treatment, get in touch with our friendly team at Victorian Dermal.

What is a Fraxel Dual laser?

Fraxel Dual lasers are a type of fractionated laser that uses thermal heat to destroy imperfections in the skin. Natural collagen renewal processes then begin in the skin, leading to a turnover of freshly healed skin.

How long do Fraxel Dual results last for?

Results from Fraxel Dual treatments take a few days to begin to show. In this time, your skin may actually look worse than before. This is common, as your skin needs time to heal and adjust to the treatment. However, following this stage, you can expect to see ongoing improvement for months.

How many Fraxel Dual treatments do I need?

This depends on the treatment you are receiving. Pigmentation procedures will show results after just 2 sessions. Acne and scarring procedures are more involved, and will require up to 5 sessions. More intense treatments should be spaced out either at 4 weeks apart, or 6 to 8 weeks apart. Visit our clinic to understand just how long your treatment will take.

How do I prepare for a Fraxel Dual laser treatment?

To prepare for your Fraxel Dual treatment, keep your skin free from retinoids for a week before your appointment. On the day of your appointment, your skin will be numbed prior to your treatment to allow you maximum comfort.

Fraxel Dual laser treatments can only be undertaken by skin that is free from extensive breakouts, open wounds, and serious infections. If you are suffering from any of these, you'll have to reschedule.

Is Fraxel Dual worth it?

Yes. In terms of costs, downtime, and ultimately, results, Fraxel Dual laser treatments are definitely worth it. You can restore your skin, and your confidence, with just a few treatments.
