Is Fraxel restore Dual the same thing as Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927?

The Fraxel Dual was introduced several years ago by Solta. The Dual is a combination of the 1927 wavelength for pigmentation and the 1550 wavelength for wrinkles and scars. Depending on which wavelength you choose you are treating different conditions in the skin from sun damage to wrinkles. Fraxel is my favorite laser and please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Fraxel for the best cosmetic results.
Fraxel Dual 1550/1927
First there was Fraxel Restore 1550 wavelength that penetrates deep into the skin layers specifically targeting concerns such as wrinkles or acne scars.
Then Fraxel Dual was introduced, the Dual machine houses a 1550 wavelength and a 1927 wavelength. The 1927 wavelength effectively targets tone, texture, superficial signs of aging, actinic keratosis and pigmentation.
When receiving a treatment using this machine you can receive a 1550, 1927 or both during your treatment. The wavelength used is dependent on your skin and what improvement it needs.
It is best to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist to see which treatment is appropriate for you.
