What is the Fraxel II?

I've been researching the different machines and there is a lot of discussion about the Fraxel Restore and the Repair but little to nothing on the Fraxel II. A local doctor has the Fraxel II, this is why I ask. Is it an older Fraxel that is no longer common?

Dr. Shelton has summarized the various Fraxel lasers available today. A few years ago the original Fraxel restore was upgraded and some referred to the upgraded restore as Fraxel II.

Good luck and be well.

Fraxel lasers

There are four Fraxel lasers. Refine found in spas, restore non ablative, repair ablative. The newest is an updated restore that has a second laser (1927 nm) designed to mimize brown spots and freckling, in addition to the 1550nm of the original restore. This rederred to theFraxel Dual as it has 2 lasers in one. Maybe that's what is being referred to as II but that is not a formal name.
