The best lasers to treat lines, wrinkles, blood vessels
Fraxel Restore Dual is two lasers in one: an erbium laser which can treat fine lines, skin texture, acne scars, and more, and a thulium laser which can treat brown spots and skin pigmentation very well. For broken blood vessels, a better option would most likely be IPL (intense pulsed light) or V-beam (a pulsed dye laser). The best thing to do would be to visit a board-certified dermatologist for an in-person consultation, during which they can evaluate your skin and come up with a custom treatment plan that addresses all of your concerns. We offer over 40 lasers at my practice in San Diego in order to ensure that each patient can receive a customized treatment plan that will work best for their individual skin needs.
Fraxel Dual offers great flexibility in treating skin imperfections.
Fraxel re:store originally had only the 1550 wavelength. Fraxel Dual has 1550 and 1927nm wavelengths for texture and pigment.
laser that had only the 1550nm wavelength of light that is mainly used for improving scars, fine wrinkles and skin texture. With the addition of the 1972 wavelength the Fraxel Dual the laser can achieve greater improvement in pigment, wrinkles and texture. In our clinic, we have 2 Fraxel Dual Lasers and find them to be excellent for the 30 to 60 year old patient with mild wrinkles, blotchy pigment, uneven texture and mild precancerous spots. One aggressive treatment with this laser will improve the skin dramatically for 2 to 3 years when maintained with good skin care products and sun protection.
