Her team knows how important it is to have beautiful skin, and when patients are interested in rejuvenating their appearance, they are welcome to ask about Fraxel Dual laser treatments.

What is Fraxel Dual?

Dr. Mary Lupo describes the Fraxel Dual as the most consistently safe and effective laser for patients who are interested in overall skin rejuvenation. The treatment is achieved with a specialized laser device that can address a variety of issues on the skin, including:
  • Poor texture and tone
  • Pore size
  • Acne scarring
  • Photodamage
  • Age spots
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Melasma
The Fraxel Dual device administers light energy into the skin to stimulate the production of collagen and elastin while targeting redness and discoloration. The treatment is used for many of our patients who have a variety of issues on the facial area that they would like to treat with just one solution.

Is Fraxel laser treatment safe?

Absolutely! The team at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology encourage patients to ask about this and other laser services readily available for use in the practice. Fraxel Dual is a device that has been cleared by the FDA for cosmetic and medical purposes. It provides a variety of solutions for our patients, making it a highly desirable option for men and women to consider when they want to target the facial area and improve a number of specific concerns.

Who is a candidate for Fraxel Dual laser services?

Fraxel Dual is not the only option available to patients who want to transform their skin’s texture and tone. Dr. Mary Lupo will assess patients during their initial appointment to determine if they are appropriate candidates for this and other skin rejuvenation solutions. Most patients who have the above skin concerns and want to address them with a more aggressive option are welcome to ask about this treatment. Many find that this treatment will give them the results they want in a brief period of time—but they must be aware of the healing time needed. Social downtime may need to be considered as the skin can become red and peel during the recovery period. However, the end result is beautiful, healthy-looking skin!

Alternatives to Fraxel Dual laser therapies

Fraxel Dual is not the only option available to patients who want to transform their skin’s texture and tone. At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, we offer a wide selection of procedures and therapies for patients to consider when they are interested in addressing these common concerns. Other options may include Clear+Brilliant, chemical peels, microdermabrasion, microneedling, and other skin rejuvenation treatments. Fraxel Dual does require more downtime than many of these other solutions, so this is something to consider when picking a treatment for your specific needs.

What can I expect during my Fraxel Dual appointment?

At the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology, provide patients with solutions that can help them achieve beautiful, healthy skin First, patients are made comfortable in the treatment chair for their procedure. The skin is cleansed, and a topical anesthetic is applied to the face to reduce discomfort from the laser. Then, the laser administers light energy into the skin in a pattern, administered by our professional team. Patients will feel a slight snapping sensation, but it is well-tolerated by most. The skin is cleansed again to remove the topical creams and a moisturizer is worked into the complexion to help protect it and facilitate healing. Patients are given after-care instructions to follow closely when they leave the office and will be advised to reduce sunlight exposure and use sunscreen. This is because the skin is susceptible to sun damage after this service.
