Fraxel Dual in Charlotte

Medically reviewed by Dr. Richard Paul Greenberg on 6/4/24

At Ageless Remedies SouthPark Med Spa in Charlotte, NC, we specialize in a range of anti-aging treatments designed to give you a fresh, youthful glow. Of these interventions, one of our most popular is Fraxel Dual.

Fraxel Dual is an advanced fractional laser treatment that rejuvenates the skin by utilizing two wavelengths: 1550 nanometers (nm) and 1927 nm. The 1550 nm wavelength stimulates collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin and is often used to improve scars and stretch marks. Comparatively, the 1927 nm wavelength technology targets the skin’s surface layer and is excellent for treating sunspots, melasma and other pigmentation issues. 

This two-pronged approach offers fast, comprehensive results. After a single session, your skin will feel softer and look brighter. These outcomes will continue to improve as your body makes more collagen in the three to six months after treatment. Results can last for years.

Benefits of Fraxel Dual

Fraxel Dual is a safe, comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation in Charlotte, NC. Key advantages include:

  • Collagen Production: By penetrating deep into the skin, Fraxel triggers the production of collagen, a crucial protein that provides structure and elasticity. Increased collagen levels result in firmer, more supple skin.
  • Improved Skin Tone and Texture: Fraxel effectively targets pigmentation irregularities, such as sunspots and age spots. This versatile treatment also refines skin texture for a smoother, more supple feel.
  • Minimal Downtime: Since Fraxel is a non-surgical procedure, patients can resume their normal activities without the inconvenience of downtime.
  • Immediate and Progressive Results: Soon after treatment, the surface of your skin will feel softer and look brighter. These results will continue to improve as your skin heals and produces collagen in the months to come.
  • FDA-Approved: After rigorous testing and clinical trials, Fraxel Dual has met the stringent standards set by the FDA. That means this therapy is both safe and effective.

Fraxel Dual for Specific Concerns

In Charlotte, Fraxel Dual is renowned for its versatility in addressing a wide range of skin issues, including:

Fraxel Dual for wrinkles and fine lines

By delivering controlled microbeams of 1550 nm laser energy deep into the skin, Fraxel Dual encourages new collagen growth. With higher levels of collagen, the skin becomes more supple and elastic, and fine lines and wrinkles gradually diminish. These results continue to improve over time.

Fraxel Dual for sun damage

Prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation from the sun can damage the skin, causing hyperpigmentation, uneven texture and other cosmetic issues. To correct this damage, the Fraxel device emits 1927 nm wavelength laser energy to break down excess melanin in the epidermis, the skin’s superficial layer. Meanwhile, 1550 nm wavelength lasers stimulate collagen synthesis in the deeper layers of the skin.

Fraxel Dual for acne scars

From raised, thickened patches of skin to deep pockmarks, acne scars can have a significant impact on your self-confidence. Fraxel Dual reduces the appearance of acne scars by stimulating collagen production deep in the dermis using 1550 nm wavelength lasers.

Fraxel Dual for melasma and other pigmentation issues

Melasma is a skin condition characterized by patches of hyperpigmentation on the cheeks, forehead, upper lip and chin. While melasma is not harmful or painful, it can be a source of cosmetic concern. Luckily, most Charlotte patients experience significant improvements in the appearance of melasma and other pigmentation issues after a single Fraxel Dual treatment.

Fraxel Dual for enlarged pores

Fraxel Dual addresses enlarged pores by stimulating collagen production in the skin’s deeper layers. This process enhances skin elasticity and firmness, ultimately reducing the size of pores. The laser technology also regulates sebum production, preventing future breakouts and giving you the clear, smooth complexion you deserve.

Fraxel Dual for skin texture

As we age, cellular turnover slows down, causing dead skin cells to build up. This accumulation can cause a rough, uneven texture and dull complexion. Fraxel Dual’s 1927 nm wavelength laser energy helps you reclaim your youthful glow by exfoliating the skin and encouraging the production of new, healthy cells.

Fraxel Dual for stretch marks

Stretch marks occur when the skin is stretched rapidly, causing the collagen fibers to break down. Fraxel Dual’s 1550 nm wavelength lasers penetrate deep into the skin, rebuilding the damaged tissue and improving the appearance of stretch marks after a single treatment session.

What to Expect During Fraxel Dual Treatment

A Fraxel Dual treatment session is quick, convenient and relatively painless. Here’s what you can expect during the four-step treatment session in Charlotte, NC.

Step 1: Consultation

Before treatment, you will meet with a healthcare provider to discuss your skincare concerns, medical history and treatment goals. They will also assess your skin and determine if Fraxel Dual is the right option for you.

Step 2: Preparation

On the day of your Fraxel Dual treatment, a skincare professional will apply a topical numbing agent to the treatment area 30 to 60 minutes prior to treatment. After numbing, your provider will cleanse the treatment area to remove any makeup, oil or debris from the skin.

Step 3: Treatment

During the Fraxel Dual treatment, your healthcare provider will move a handheld laser device over the surface of your skin. You may feel a warm or prickling sensation, similar to a sunburn. 

Depending on your tolerance, your provider may adjust the settings of the laser device or use a built-in cooling mechanism to minimize discomfort.

Step 4: Post-Treatment Care

After treatment, your provider will apply cold compresses to the skin to alleviate redness and swelling. They will also provide specific post-treatment instructions and, depending on your treatment plan, schedule follow-up sessions.

Potential side effects

Fraxel Dual is a safe, FDA-approved solution for individuals seeking a youthful glow. However, like any cosmetic procedure, there are potential side effects. These include:

  • Pain, much like a sunburn
  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Dryness and peeling

These side effects are typically mild and subside within one to two days. To reduce discomfort and optimize results, patients should protect the treated skin from direct sun exposure by wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen and protective clothing, such as hats and sunglasses, when outdoors.
