What is the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Laser?

The Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation treatment that harnesses the power of fractional laser technology to address a variety of skin concerns. This advanced procedure utilizes 1927nm and/or 1550nm wavelength light —to target the surface and deeper layers of the skin, respectively, resulting in significant improvement in skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.

Key Benefits of the Fraxel® DUAL Laser:

Skin Rejuvenation: The Fraxel® Laser stimulates collagen production and promotes cellular turnover, resulting in smoother texture, improved tone, and enhanced overall appearance.

Treatment Versatility: This advanced laser technology can target various skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, pigmentation irregularities, and sun damage, making it suitable for a diverse range of patients.

Customizable Treatment: The Fraxel® Laser allows for precise customization of treatment parameters, enabling dermatologists to tailor the procedure to each patient’s unique skin type, concerns, and desired outcomes.

Minimal Downtime: Unlike traditional ablative laser resurfacing, the Fraxel® Dual laser resurfacing is a non-ablative treatment that typically requires minimal downtime (up to 1 week), allowing patients to return to their daily activities with minimal disruption.

The Fraxel® DUAL Laser Procedure:

Consultation: Before undergoing Fraxel® Dual laser treatment, patients will have a consultation with Dr. Patel to discuss their skincare concerns and goals.

Preparation: Prior to treatment, patients may be advised to prepare their skin with specific skincare products and avoid certain medications or treatments that could increase skin sensitivity.

Treatment: During the procedure, the skin is cleansed, and topical numbing and/or nerve blocks are used to minimize discomfort. The Fraxel® Dual Laser is then used to deliver precise, targeted beams of light energy to the skin.

Post-Treatment Care: After the treatment session, patients may experience redness, swelling, and mild discomfort, which typically subside within a few days. It’s important to follow post-treatment care instructions provided by Dr. Patel, including skincare routines and sun protection measures.

Results: While individual results may vary, most patients notice significant improvement in their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance within a few weeks of undergoing their Fraxel® Laser treatment. Multiple sessions may be recommended for optimal results, depending on the severity of the skin concerns.

Risks and Considerations:

While the Fraxel® Laser treatment is generally safe and well-tolerated, it’s essential to be aware of potential risks and side effects, including:

Redness and Swelling: Temporary redness, swelling, and mild discomfort are common after treatment but usually resolve within a few days.

Hyperpigmentation or Hypopigmentation: Changes in skin pigmentation may occur, particularly in individuals with darker skin tones. Proper pre-treatment preparation and post-treatment care can help minimize these risks.

Infection: Although rare, there is a slight risk of infection following laser treatment. Patients should follow post-treatment care instructions carefully to reduce this risk.

Scarring: Scarring is uncommon but possible


Fraxel® Laser treatment offers a safe and effective solution for a wide range of skin concerns, including wrinkles, sun damage, pigmentation irregularities and scarring. By consulting with Dr. Patel and following post-treatment care guidelines, patients can enjoy significant improvements in their skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance, restoring confidence and enhancing their natural beauty.
