Fraxel® Dual Resurfacing
Fraxel® Dual is the most respected, FDA cleared, fractional laser technology which combines two lasers in one to offer you more tailored treatments to address all of your skincare concerns. With Fraxel® Dual laser resurfacing from our Raleigh, NC practice, you can literally remove years from your appearance. Correct uneven pigmentation and brown spots, stimulate new collagen growth for firmer skin, minimize fines lines and wrinkles, treat years of sun damage, and improve the appearance of scars, all in one treatment.
The most common areas for treatment are the face, neck, chest, and hands, but it’s certainly not limited to these areas as it can effectively improve problematic skin conditions almost anywhere on your body. Fraxel® technology is a more aggressive, yet minimally invasive approach, that can achieve dramatic results without surgery.

On the day of your treatment, we will apply a topical anesthetic for maximum comfort. The feeling is best described as a prickly heated sensation with minimal discomfort. The Fraxel® laser treatment produces thousands of microscopic treatment zones in your skin. This break through laser technology penetrates deep into the dermis and eliminates targeted, damaged epithelial cells while leaving the untargeted cells intact and unaffected. This type of fractional treatment allows much faster healing and makes better use of the body’s natural healing processes.
Patients have flexibility in working with us to choose their treatment plans. More aggressive treatments will mean fewer sessions, with some social downtime to be expected after each session. Several gentle treatments are an option for those with more sensitive skin. This complete customization is one of the primary benefits of choosing Fraxel® over other laser skin resurfacing systems.
For the first few days, your skin may take on a bronzed appearance. Exfoliation will take place as new radiant skin evolves. Patients report the effect as feeling similar to a sunburn. New epidermal skin develops quickly, and should be protected with plenty of moisturizer and sunscreen.
In the weeks and months following your session, the body will repair the deeper dermal tissues treated by the Fraxel® laser, and your appearance will continue to improve with the ongoing renewal process. Although many patients can see a difference after just a single session, others may choose three to five sessions for maximum results depending on the conditions being addressed. Treatment sessions will be spaced a few weeks apart.
When your full treatment series is complete, you should see significant improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, reduction in age spots and sun damage, a smoothing out of acne scars or other scars, and a more glowing, even skin tone overall. Many of our patients say that Fraxel® has helped them achieve an improved skin tone and enhanced complexion beyond what they ever thought possible.
