The Fraxel Dual is a laser that uses light energy to cause micro-perforations in the skin, with areas spared in between the zones being treated, leading to a quick recovery time. This laser has so many uses, and is so patient friendly, with little downtime. I am using this laser on a regular basis in the treatment of acne scarring, surgical scars, wrinkles on the face/hands/neck/chest, discoloration, melasma, sun spots, sun damaged skin and stretch marks. This laser is a multitasker, taking care of rejuvenating the skin at the same time as treating discoloration and wrinkles. For further information visit www.fraxel.com
The Pixel is a laser which uses light energy to create small perforations in the skin, new skin and collagen are produced in the areas treated. This laser is a great option for a patient interested in erasing deeper lines and wrinkles, scars, discoloration, and want skin tightening and rejuvenation. It is used in combination with the Erbium/Yag laser for the resurfacing of deep pitted acne scars and deeper lines. This laser is an ablative resurfacing laser that causes perforations in the skin to the level of collagen, it stimulates new skin and collagen in the areas treated. The results from a Pixel treatment can take off 5-10 years from a face by both resurfacing and tightening the skin.
