Difference between Fraxel and Fraxel Dual Lasers
Has the summer sun left you with some brown spots? You may wondering about the lasers that treat those pigmented areas.
The original Fraxel (erbium 1550 nm) excels at treating mild to moderate acne scarring, improving texture and pore size (a little), and minimizing fine lines.
The Fraxel Dual does everything the original does because it still has the original laser but it adds a second wavelength (1927 nm) that is much better for brown spots and pigmented areas. The brilliance of the engineering is that the two can be customized. So if 6-8 passes are done routinely with the laser any combination of the two wavelengths can be used depending on the main problems.
The IPL is also excellent for brown spots, but usually requires three to five treatments in a series for stubborn pigment.
