The FDA approved treatments of Fraxel Restore, Fraxel Dual, and Fraxel Repair have been proven to dramatically improve the appearance of skin, effectively decreasing the appearance of common issues that cause one to look older than he or she really is. To combat the effects of time and eliminate the appearance of age or sun spots, Melasma or the Mask of Pregnancy, or scarring from acne, contact us at (212) 593-1818. By making this call and scheduling your one on one consultation with and experienced, board-certified physician, you move closer to the version of yourself that you most love.
Fraxel™ Dual is Solta's newest modality. Fraxel™ Dual has two lasers in one. Dr. Shelton's skin and laser center continues to provide the state of the art technology and was one of the first practices in New York City to obtain the Fraxel™ Dual laser. The Dual laser contains both the Fraxel™ Restore and the new Fraxel™ Thurium laser. The Restore continues to help minimize fine lines, but the second laser wavelength helps minimize sunspots and freckles more efficiently. There is some peeling that does occur with the Fraxel™ Dual laser and Dr. Shelton will evaluate your skin and inform you as to which laser treatment plan is best for you and what to expect with the convalescence so that you can schedule a treatment accordingly. The amount of Restore and Dual can be adjusted for your skin and the amount of peeling can also be adjusted based on your needs.
The Fraxel™ Repair laser is a fractional ablative treatment that provides a more comfortable healing period than the older non-fractional carbon dioxide laser that created a full area of a facial wound equivalent to a second degree burn. The Fraxel™ Repair breaks through the skin's outside surface and allows the infinitesimal columns of light to remove columns of damaged collagen from the underlying dermis and the body then replaces this with new long-lived collagen. Since only a maximum of 15 to 30 percent of the skin is treated, leaving intact and untreated areas around each treated spot, this leaves an allowance for the natural healing process to do a more efficient job of recovery.
