FRAXIS DUO Fractional CO2 Laser treatment should only be performed by an experienced and highly skilled doctor or aesthetician, as the slightest mistake brought on by inexperience can have drastic consequences. Fortunately, Dr. Sedgh and his medical team possess extensive knowledge and expertise in cosmetic facial treatments, as well as the latest aesthetic equipment (including the new FRAXIS DUO Fractional CO2 Laser with Micro-Needle RF), so you can be assured of optimal results with little to no side effects.
Thanks to the combined modalities of the FRAXIS DUO laser, it is able to deliver powerful results by targeting the top layer of the skin and the deeper layers simultaneously. The fractional CO2 laser emits fractionated beams of light that create controlled thermal damage that will be healed by the surrounding tissues naturally, while the micro-needles promote more significant improvement by delivering precisely controlled RF energy at different depths of the dermis and encouraging collagen remodeling within the skin.
The surgeon will first apply a topical anesthetic on your entire face or specific target areas and wait until it is sufficiently numb. Alternatively, a sedative may also be used, depending on your anesthetic needs and the extent of the treatment.
The doctor or aesthetician will then begin by making several passes on sections of your face or specific target areas with both the fractional laser and micro-needle handpieces. 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 anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes. For a full face treatment, the treatment can last up to two hours.
