What is the Fraxel Dual?

Fraxel Dual is the gold standard in skin rejuvenation. Dr. Mary Lupo at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology is pleased to provide Fraxel Dual for patients. This treatment uses special laser light to address many types of skin concerns, which include:
  • Acne scarring
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Actinic keratosis
  • Sun/photo damage
  • Pigmentation concerns
  • Melasma
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Age/sun spots
This device emits two types of laser light that helps in stimulating the body’s natural production of collagen to improve the structural supports of the skin and to lighten dark spots and sun damage. At the same time, it can tighten and firm the skin, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, which contribute to aging skin. Some patients also choose Fraxel Dual for overall skin rejuvenation as it can smooth the texture and tone of the skin.
