Fraxel® Dual is a revolutionary laser treatment that effectively targets both the surface and deeper layers of the skin to create a smoother, fresher younger appearance. Fraxel® will improve your skin texture and tone by reducing unwanted wrinkles, acne scars, sun spots and discoloration including melasma. Fraxel® is commonly performed on the face, neck, chest and hands. It is also the best procedure to use to minimize the appearance of stretch marks and displeasing surgical scars.

Fraxel Dual® delivers the results you can see and feel. This non-ablative (doesn’t hurt the top portion of your skin) laser is the gold standard in skin rejuvenation. Whether you have sun damage, fine wrinkles around the eyes, or even acne scaring, this aggressive, yet remarkably safe procedure, will allow you to have smoother, fresher, younger looking skin; and a new, visible tone and texture, without unwanted brown spots, that help illuminate your inner beauty.

Fraxel® treatments will also improve surgical scars, stretch marks and irregular pigmentation including melasma (the mask of pregnancy). Fraxel® laser treatments are performed in our Riverside, MO office, and, though most commonly used on the face, neck, chest and hands, theyre also safe to perform anywhere on the body. The procedure requires that topical anesthesia is placed on the treatment site a minimum of 1 hour before the procedure. During the procedure, a jet stream of cold air is used to enhance patient comfort. The procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face, and most people return to routine activities within a day or two, though some patients may experience longer down times.

Most men and women experience immediate results, and see the greatest benefits after three to five treatments.
