Who would benefit from Fraxel® DUAL Laser (1927/1550)?

As we age, we start to see the visible effects that time has had on our skin, and the natural aging process limits our skin’s ability to produce collagen and elastin. 

Aging, loss of collagen, and environmental factors like sun damage often leads to dull, uneven,  and textured skin. If you are noticing this, it’s time to take action and experience the skin rejuvenation you deserve.

What is the Fraxel® DUAL Laser?

The Fraxel® DUAL laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. This revolutionary, non-invasive laser treatment addresses a fraction of tissue at a time, leaving surrounding tissue intact. 

Because the surrounding tissue is left untouched, this promotes rapid healing and makes the laser incredibly safe.

The Fraxel® DUAL laser is FDA-cleared to treat the following skin conditions:

  • Acne scars
  • Surgical scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin texture
  • Age spots and sun spots
  • Wrinkles around the eyes
  • Melasma 
  • Actinic Keratoses 

The Fraxel® DUAL treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out. The results will give you fresher, more youthful-looking skin and an improved, smoother texture.

What makes the Fraxel® DUAL treatment unique?

The uniqueness of the DUAL device is that it has two separate treatment modes that target different skin layers by using different laser frequencies. This allows us to further customize the treatment to address diverse skin conditions and skin types.

This treatment is an effective option if you want more youthful-appearing, healthier skin without surgery or other dramatic, more invasive treatments. 

What are expectations with the Fraxel® DUAL laser treatments?

There’s minimal downtime, and no injections or cutting associated with this treatment.  

What to expect from the Fraxel® DUAL treatment:

  • At your initial skin consultation, our team will determine your personalized treatment plan and how many sessions you will need based on your individual concerns and goals
  • Many patients have 3-5 sessions spaced about 4-6 weeks apart
  • We use topical anesthesia beforehand and integrated cooling during the treatment to minimize discomfort
  • The procedure takes 10 to 25 minutes After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1-3 hours

You will see some improvement immediately, but results will be seen fully 2-3 months after treatment. During this time, your skin is healing and producing new collagen to replace damaged tissue. 

After treatment, your skin will have improved tone and texture, as well as a new radiance.

It’s important to note that while this treatment will yield outstanding results, it’s up to you to continue taking care of your skin post-treatment.

Depending on your individual skin conditions, our dermatologist-led team will recommend certain products and care plans for you to follow to continue protecting your skin. We always encourage you to use broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher sunscreen and avoid direct sun exposure (to the best of your ability) for at least 3 months after your last treatment.

Our Philosophy

“Our practice philosophy is simple — to deliver the very best care we can in the very best way we can. To us, that means we make each and every patient feel welcomed from the moment that they walk in the door until they leave the office. It means that we listen to what the patient has to say and address those concerns. It means we give advice and recommend treatments based on our extensive training with leaders in the field, our wealth of personal experience, and our commitment to excellence. For our cosmetic patients, it means working with the patient to achieve results that look natural, not overdone or exaggerated. It means that we always strive to do the right thing for the patient, as we value very highly ethics, honesty, and integrity. It means we stand behind what we do and will do everything in our power to get the best results we can for the patient. It means we carefully select the highest quality staff to represent us and help us carry out these goals. Lastly and most importantly, it means that we treat the patient the way we would want ourselves to be treated, with respect and kindness. Because at the end of the day, without all of our loyal patients, we wouldn’t have a practice.”

Extremely caring

"He saved my life! Literally! I've been seeing Dr. Potozkin for over 20 years and I wouldn't trust anyone else with my skin. I had melanoma 20 years ago and he took care of me and just recently I had it again. And might have more, but I'm waiting on the results. But if I do, I am confident that Dr Potozkin and his highly trained staff will take care of me. He is the best in his field. Everyone on his staff is so caring and helpful. I feel so comfortable when I'm there. So please, if you have any skin concerns, make an appointment, don't delay, your life may depend on it."

Efficient & Professional

"Dr. Potozkin and his team are the best! My skin issues/problems have drastically improved since I have been coming to this Doctor-over 5, maybe even 10 years. His staff is knowledgeable and friendly. The office is a flagship store that sells my favorite skin repair and healing products- by SkinCeuticals. I don’t live near this office, but I would never go anywhere else even if it’s closer. Absolutely worth the trip. The results are real!"
