Fraxel Dual Laser System Zaps Away Sun Spots
By Anna K. Fryxell |
Good news! If you struggle with age spots, sunspots and freckles, then you’re going to want to pay attention. That’s because the FDA just cleared the Fraxel Dual Laser System for these pigmentation problems.
This laser not only treats pigmented lesions, but it also can be used for skin resurfacing procedures and to treat actinic keratosis, melasma, periorbital wrinkles, acne and surgical scars. Even better, this system can be used for people of all ages and skin colors.
This laser penetrates the dermis without affecting the protective outer later of the skin to minimize downtime. It also stimulates new collagen creation to help reverse the aging process and lighten pigmentation that’s specifically caused by sun damage.
"The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 provides patients superior anti-aging results, specifically when treating pigmentation of the skin caused by sun exposure,” says Dr. Roy G. Geronemus, director of the Laser & Skin Surgery Center of New York and clinical professor of dermatology at New York University Medical Center. “The additional FDA clearance for Fraxel Dual is a breakthrough in the treatment, improvement, and correction of undesired skin pigmentation. With the 1927 nm wavelength, patients can see significant results with very little downtime."
