Fraxel

Fraxel DUAL in Los Angeles, CAWieder Dermatology & Laser Center uses the latest in Fraxel technology known as the Fraxel Dual.  This technology is revolutionary because it combines the effectiveness of ablative lasers with the gentleness of non-ablative lasers.

What are the benefits of this new Fraxel?

  • It improves rough skin texture and tone
  • It removes unwanted brown spots, patches and melasma
  • It smooths wrinkles around the eyes
  • It reduces acne scars
  • It rejuvenates the neck, chest and hands
  • It reduces early precancerous growths called actinic keratoses

How does Fraxel Dual work?
Think of your skin as a digital photograph in need of high-quality restoration or touch up. Just as a damaged painting is delicately restored one small area at a time, or a photographic image is altered, pixel by pixel, Fraxel® Laser Treatment improves your appearance by affecting only a fraction of your skin at a time with thousands of tiny microscopic laser spots. It produces thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment in your skin, known as microscopic treatment zones. This treatment not only eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells but also penetrates deep into the dermis. Just as important though, are the areas of skin the Fraxel laser leaves untouched. For every microscopic zone the laser targets and treats intensively, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This “fractional” treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the body’s natural healing process to create new, healthy tighter tissue to replace skin imperfections.

I am very excited to be able to offer this new treatment to my patients. For more information or to make an appointment, please call our office.
