What types of lasers are Fraxel Dual and fractional CO2 laser?

Fraxel lasers belong to the category of non-ablative fractional lasers for Dual and ablative for fractional CO2 laser. They work by vaporizing (i.e., controlled burning) the dermis, which leads to secondary skin repair via collagen neo-synthesis. Technically, the Fraxel laser works by delivering high-energy, small-diameter shocks that allow for treatment-free intervals. It is a safe laser, approved by the FDA and European medical authorities, and recognized for its optimal treatment comfort and clear efficacy in a variety of indications.

At the end of a Fraxel Dual laser session, approximately 25% of the dermis is treated with fractional mode impacts.

This preserves 75% of the dermis, resulting in very rapid healing and excellent tolerability without the dermabrasion effect seen with previous generation lasers.

What are the indications for Fraxel DUAL and fractional CO2 laser?

Fractional lasers, including Fraxel Dual and fractional CO2 laser, offer effective treatments for a wide range of indications:

  • Improvement of wrinkles and fine lines (on the face),
  • Prevention of skin aging,
  • Reduction of acne scars,
  • Softening surgical scars,
  • Treatment of blemishes, sometimes with Fraxel Dual,
  • Reduction of white stretch marks on small areas, as the cost of treatment is high (a preliminary test on a small area may be required). Stretch marks are still difficult to treat.

A preliminary consultation with Dr. Molinari, dermatologist in Paris, is essential to assess the feasibility and benefits of Fraxel laser treatment after a clinical examinationThe consultation will also determine whether the Fraxel Dual laser or the fractional CO2 laser will be used. The more aggressive fractional CO2 laser requires social eviction for a few days after use.

The Fraxel laser requires the application of an anesthetic cream before the session (usually 1h30 to 2 hours before) to make the session as comfortable as possible. Under these conditions, the treatment is painless. A full face treatment with the Fraxel Dual laser takes approximately 20 to 30 minutes

The Fraxel Dual laser offers a relatively easy follow-up. After the treatment, there may be some swelling and redness for a few days. However, there is no scabbing or social eviction. Patients can also apply makeup to the treated areas without any problem.

The Fraxel Dual laser can be used on all skin types, especially dark and black skin, with no risk of depigmentation.

The more aggressive Fraxel Repair laser usually results in scarring. A synergistic treatment with these two devices can be suggested.
