Here at the Lupo Center, we use the Fraxel Restore Dual Wavelength System for the most advanced treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmentation, Actinic Keratosis, sun damage, and surface scarring. This system has been chosen out of many options because we want to serve our patients with technology that has a high safety rating as well as proven results for various skin types. An additional benefit to Fraxel treatment is that the patient experiences only minimal disruption in their normal level of activity.
The benefits of the Fraxel Dual resurfacing device - Dr. Mary Lupo
Fraxel Dula is one of the most popular devices in my practice.
The reason is because of the consistency of the results and the science behind the Fraxel technology.
Is it better than the rest?
Fraxel is so good that as the other fractional lasers came out a lot of people thought they were getting Fraxel at a Spa or something, but they weren’t getting Fraxel they were getting another fractional resurfacing device.
Who is an ideal candidate?
- Patient who has sun damage
- Who wants a re-texturizing/brightening/ firming of the skin surface
- Wants an improvement of finer lines, finer wrinkles, pores, and for discoloration, brown spots, dullness of the skin
Those are the patients who are the best candidates for Fraxel Dual.
Why is it called Dual?
It is called Dual because it is two lasers. One that works primarily at the surface and breaks up the pigmentation and one that penetrates a little bit deeper that's better for lines and acne scars.
For photo rejuvenation, we use both lasers. If someone doesn't have photoaging and superficial discoloration, and I am treating acne scars I am going to use one of the two lasers.
What is best about Fraxel Dual?
The beauty of Fraxel Dual is like Botox and Fillers it is doctor dependent in understanding the technology and picking the optimal settings and depth, the number of passes, etc. to give the patient the best possible result.

For patients who want to feel good about how they look, who want real results without extensive downtime or drastic changes in their appearance, Fraxel is a great option. This non-invasive laser treatment is designed around each patient, as we have the ability to adjust the level of intensity in each case. Depending on need, Fraxel may provide superficial, moderate, or deeply penetrative treatment of particular skin concerns. The results that can be achieved in a series of treatment sessions are typically dramatic, with skin looking younger, brighter, and smoother in the most natural way.
Fraxel laser treatment may be applied on face, neck, chest, and hands for overall improvement in skin tone and texture. Full face treatment in our office takes only about thirty minutes, though we may schedule additional time to cleanse and anesthetize the skin beforehand. Patients report feeling mild prickling or heat sensations as laser energy is applied. After treatment, the skin may feel slightly sunburned for a few days.
