Fraxis Duo utilizes Micro-Needling RF technology for scar removal and photo-aging treatments. RF Microneedling combines the use of tiny needles to penetrate the skin, along with radio frequency pulses to deliver heat to the dermis. This procedure is performed by using numbing cream on the treated area, and then the application of the RF Microneedling.
WHY CHOOSE FRAXIS DUO LASER?
If you suffer from skin imperfections or progressive signs of aging, the FRAXIS DUO RF Microneedle Laser treatment is a viable alternative to invasive surgical procedures that typically cost a lot more and entail longer downtimes. Patients who undergo this procedure can expect skin that becomes increasingly smoother, clearer, and more rejuvenated after the treatment.
RF Microneedling is used to treat:
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The needles cause initial “damage” to the tissue which by itself will lead to new collagen formation. The addition of the radio frequency to the needles causes heating, which will provide for a more effective stimulation of collagen formation. This new collagen can smooth scars, tighten skin, and provide an overall more youthful look to the skin.
WHAT’S THE TREATMENT LIKE?
A topical anesthetic is applied to the entire face or specific target areas. The provider will begin by making several passes on sections of your face or specific target areas with the microneedle hand-piece. Heat and tingling sensations can be expected as the laser moves across the skin. Depending on the size of the target areas, the procedure may take between 15 to 60 minutes.
WHAT’S THE RECOVERY TIME?
This outpatient procedure will entail several days of downtime. Immediately after, treated areas will be red and warm to the touch. Ice packs or a cold compress may be applied for 5 to 10 minutes per hour during the first 5 to 6 hours post-treatment in order to ease discomfort. A thick topical gel may be prescribed to protect and speed up the healing process, and you may be advised to avoid showering for the first few days. The skin will take up to 14 days to shed and heal completely. However, for around 4 to 6 weeks after the treatment, the treated areas will remain pinkish and slightly blotchy. While your skin will already start to show noticeable improvements after the initial recovery, the final results will be revealed in about 3 to 6 months.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?
The benefits of the microneedle RF fractional laser allows the treatment of all skin types and provides opportunities for both deep and superficial treatments for wrinkles, acne scars and other scars. Photo damage is erased.
