Dual Fraxel Laser
What is Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment?
The Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment is a non-surgical, non-invasive, FDA-approved, microscopic laser that changes the appearance of the superficial layer of the skin. This light-based facial treatment helps smooth wrinkles, marionette lines, and skin laxity issues. With this, the treatment’s forte addresses skin aging issues, including but not limited to dull and dry skin appearance, wrinkles, crow’s feet, sun damage, acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.
Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment was derived from Fraxel. This came from fractional technology, a process using fractional energy, which targets only a fraction of the skin at a time without any adverse effects on the skin barrier, hence the name. It is common among almost all dermatology clinics that aim to treat skin aging-related problems. Since the pandemic began, many individuals have been crowdsourcing facial treatments due to maskne (acne caused by masks), hyperpigmentation, skin laxity issues, and other problems caused by skin care neglect brought by lockdowns. As a result, skin resurfacing and rejuvenation treatments became popular. However, facial treatments have already been popular in Korea–even pre-pandemic, considering this is our field of expertise. Additionally, high-end machines and Korea-based cosmetic products and treatments are proof of our country’s state-of-the-art technology and development. Hence, we used this as leverage to develop better and more inclusive facial treatments, so we may cater to all your skin problems with care regardless of skin color, type, and race.
One of the many issues brought to our clinic, AMOA 640 Skin Clinic, is skin aging issues exacerbated by sun damage and extrinsic factors. Skin aging is a natural process that happens to everyone. It involves the gradual stoppage of some parts of the body systems in actively producing cells, proteins, and fibers that help our body work and maintain balance. In other words, our body no longer works as it did when we were younger. The aging process also has noticeable effects on the skin, leading to various changes in texture, tone, and overall appearance. This occurrence is what many individuals, especially women, fear the most. Thus, they come to aesthetic clinics like ours to have it treated early on and delay its physical manifestations.
One notable skin resurfacing, rejuvenating, and anti-aging treatment that has been proven to be effective in addressing and mitigating these signs of aging is the Dual Fraxel Laser, which we offer at AMOA 640 Skin Clinic.
How does Dual Fraxel Laser work?
The Dual Fraxel Laser treatment targets age and sun spots with microscopic laser columns that penetrate the underlying layer of the skin, specifically the dermis, where the fibroblasts reside, with advanced laser wave energy for collagen remodeling. This laser wave energy generates “microthermal” zones deep within the skin, which the skin later repairs by removing the old, damaged tissue and replacing it with new tissue. This process also triggers the wound-healing properties of the body, allowing a faster healing response.
The Dual Fraxel Laser device creates thermal damage in the dermis and is a stimulator. It helps stimulate the growth of new, healthy skin cells to replace the damaged cells for a brighter and rejuvenated appearance, making you look years younger than your actual age. It works best for smoothing out fine lines in the skin, and for mild to medium-depth acne scarring and unwanted pigmentation, including sun spots and signs of aging.
The Dual Fraxel Laser also offers two treatment modes, each working at different wavelengths. The first mode utilizes 1550nm wavelength. This mode penetrates the deep layers of the skin and it works best if you’re targeting deep lines and scarring, as well as acne scars. The second mode, on the other hand, utilizes 1927nm wavelength. This does not penetrate the skin as deeply as the 1550 nm, and is most ideal if you’re targeting on correcting your skin texture and tone, including superficial sun damage.
At the AMOA 640 Skin Clinic, if you wish to do the Dual Fraxel Laser treatment, you must undergo a face-to-face consultation with our board-certified doctor beforehand. This process allows us to evaluate your skin condition and issues personally, and to administer the appropriate treatment for you. Likewise, it will also help us gauge if you need other facial treatments you may incorporate with it for the best outcome for your skin.
Once you have the doctor’s approval, our licensed technician will escort you to one of our treatment rooms to have your skin prepped. This process helps us remove unwanted impurities and excess makeup that may obstruct the product’s effectiveness and cause skin damage. Afterward, the technician will apply a topical numbing cream to ensure you won’t feel discomfort during the procedure. Then, our doctor will administer the Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment by moving the laser wand slowly over the area of the skin being treated. Lastly, post-treatment creams and sunscreen are applied for optimal protection and healing.

The Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment is a widely considered facial treatment by famous K-pop artists and idols for skin aging issues, hyperpigmentation, and scars because it is FDA-approved. Likewise, the treatment has proven its safety and effectiveness as a medical modality for treating the above-stated skin problems. According to a clinical trial that tested the effectiveness of the treatment, patients have shown significant positive changes in wrinkles, pigmentation, and elasticity.
The Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment is popular among individuals in their late twenties, especially those who have been seeing physical manifestations of aging at a young age, because it helps delay further signs of aging, maintaining a youthful look. Thus, the treatment is most suitable for individuals in their late twenties. However, please be advised that we only administer the Dual Fraxel Laser Treatment to consenting adults unless the doctor says otherwise.
As there might be some discomfort throughout the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied beforehand. Post-treatment creams and sunscreen are also applied for optimal protection and healing.
The results are immediate, but you may need to wait at least two weeks for the best outcome for your skin. During this period, you may experience redness, very minimal to no swelling, and itching, then your skin will start to roughen up and may appear bronze or feel dry.
Although some patients found one treatment sufficient, the doctor recommends doing three to five sessions spaced two to four weeks apart. However, your treatment’s frequency depends on your skin severity and condition. The treatment lasts about 20 to 30 minutes, depending on your session. It is also safe for all skin types, colors, and races.
