At Premier Plastic Surgery & Dermatology, we’re proud to offer the latest device for facial smoothing, the Fraxis Duo. This device combines a Fractional CO2 Laser with RF technology microneedling to treat a variety of skin issues, from acne scars and wrinkles to complete facial rejuvenations.
The Fraxis Duo by Cryomed is the first minimally-invasive cosmetic treatment that combines RF technology (microneedling) with a laser treatment to double its effects. By combining the two technologies, our doctors can apply the laser treatment to the outer epidermis, along with the deeper heating and stimulation from microneedling, to achieve fantastic results in fewer appointments.
The Fractional CO2 Laser radiates micro laser beams onto a targeted area of skin to remove outer layers of damaged epidermis. Your body will then begin to replace the damaged skin cells with new, healthy skin cells. The result is healthier, firmer, cleaner-looking skin reminiscent of a youthful glow. Whether you are looking to improve wrinkles and fine lines or are tired of blotchiness or scars from acne, the CO2 Laser is an excellent choice for rejuvenating your skin. It has also proven to be an effective treatment for damage from sun exposure and precancerous growths.
Microneedling with RF technology is a minimally-invasive skin rejuvenation treatment that uses a “Derma Roller” to stimulate controlled healing and collagen production. The roller creates micro-injuries—small pin pricks—when rolled across the skin. Microneedling uses the power of the body’s repair process to jumpstart the collagen production process. The tiny holes created by the roller are small enough to leave the skin intact but large enough to allow blood and nutrients to flow to the injury site. By combining microneedling with the Fractional CO2 Laser, the Fraxis Duo allows us to achieve comprehensive results for our patients, reducing or eliminating scars or hyperpigmentation that would have otherwise required multiple treatments to see any possible results.
If you are looking for a ‘Derma Roller’ treatment, you might be interested in learning more about microneedling with the Rejuvapen. Similar to the Derma Roller, the Rejuvapen uses microneedling to stimulate collagen production, just on a more precise scale—about nine micro-needles instead of hundreds.
With the Fraxis Duo, you get the ideal combination of surface rejuvenation and deep stimulation. It can be used on even the most sensitive areas of the face and body. When applied to the body, it has been shown to reduce stretch marks and is effective in the treatment of Keratosis Pilaris and Hyperhidrosis.
