Fraxel Dual and Two wavelengths of treatments
The Fraxel Dual is a fabulous laser with two different wavelengths for treating pigmentation and wrinkles. The 1927 wavelength is used primarily for pigmentation and the 1550 for acne scars and wrinkles. Some doctors do combine both wavelengths during the same treatment. Caution must be advised as this combination requires lowering the energy used on both settings. For the best results please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with the Fraxel laser.
