What is the Difference Between Fraxel® and Fraxel® Dual Laser?

Fraxel® Dual is an advanced version of the basic Fraxel® laser. The primary difference between the two is that Fraxel® Dual uses two laser wavelengths, while the basic Fraxel® only uses one. Fraxel® Dual uses a 1927nm wavelength to treat numerous pigmentation issues. It also uses a 1550nm wavelength to improve textural concerns such as lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. 

The Fraxel® Dual is the most common type of Fraxel® laser found in practices. It has tremendous flexibility, allowing your Capital Laser & Skin Care provider to adjust the strength of each laser for a customized treatment.
