How the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Laser Works
As we age, you may begin to see visible changes in skin elasticity, texture, dark spots, and sun damage. But that doesn’t mean these changes are permanent. Remarkable rejuvenation can still occur with the right treatments, restoring a more youthful appearance with cutting-edge technology.
The Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser deeply targets the layers of the skin to effectively stimulate the body’s natural healing process for a refreshed look. The innovative technology precisely creates microscopic treatment zones within the skin that heals from within, while leaving the surrounding healthy tissues unaffected. The dual wavelength lasers work in tandem to target different skin layers, trigger the production of new collagen and elastin, and provide visible improvement of skin texture and tone and pigmentation irregularities.
Dr. Sal Farruggio and his team use years of expertise to deliver exceptional results for patients who choose this treatment. With a keen eye for detail and a commitment to personalized care, Dr. Farruggio customizes each laser treatment to address the unique needs and goals of his patients. His dedication to enhancing the self confidence of his patients makes him a trusted choice for individuals seeking remarkable skin rejuvenation.
Treatment Focus Areas
The Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser uses two specific wavelengths that work together to address a range of treatment areas.
By delivering controlled energy pulses, the laser treatment breaks down problem areas such as age spots, sun spots, and melasma and leaves the surrounding healthy tissues unaffected. By eliminating pigmented cells, the body’s natural healing process is stimulated and collagen is produced. In using the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser to address skin pigmentation, patients often find that they have a more even skin tone overall, in addition to the reduction in unwanted pigmentation.
Skin rejuvenation and a firmer complexion can also be achieved by the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 laser. Using the deeper wavelength to target the subdermal layer of the skin, the laser can trigger the body’s natural healing response and promote the growth of new, healthy cells, as well as the production of collagen and elastin. Over time, this process helps reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars, while improving overall skin texture and tone.
What to Expect from your Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Treatment
All laser treatments at Advanced Plastic Surgery are performed on an outpatient basis. Targeted areas may be treated individually, or across a larger area across multiple sessions.
During your session, you may experience a sensation of warmth and a slight prickling as the laser energy is delivered to your targeted areas. This is typically well tolerated across a general 30 - 45 minute session.
After your procedure, you may experience some temporary redness, swelling, and a mild sunburn-like sensation. These effects typically subside within a few days, and you can usually resume your regular activities shortly after your procedure. Optimal results and overall improvements will be realized within the following weeks.
Is Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Treatment Right for You?
Determining if the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 treatment is right for you depends on several factors. If you are seeking to address specific skin concerns such as uneven skin tone, texture, sun damage, or dark spots, this treatment may be a suitable option. The advanced laser technology is designed to target deep into the layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting a rejuvenated appearance.
The Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 treatment may also be suitable for individuals who prefer a non-invasive approach to skin rejuvenation.

Here are some of the frequently asked questions we have answered for our patients over the years:
The downtime for the Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Treatment can vary depending on individual factors, the specific treatment parameters, and the intensity of the procedure. Peeling and flaking may occur within a few days after the treatment and can last for up to a week, depending on the depth of the treatment and individual healing factors.
After a Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Treatment, it is important to follow post-treatment care. To allow your skin to begin the healing process undisturbed, it is recommended to use a gentle, non-irritating cleanser no sooner than a day after treatment.
The level of pain experienced during a Fraxel® DUAL 1550/1927 Treatment can vary from person to person. The sensation during the procedure is often described as a heat or prickling sensation, accompanied by a mild to moderate discomfort. Numbing creams are often used to ensure a comfortable experience.
The timeline for seeing results after a Fraxel treatment can vary depending on individual factors, the specific concerns being addressed, and the intensity of the treatment. While some individuals may notice initial improvements shortly after the procedure, it typically takes time for the full benefits to become apparent and multiple sessions may be needed.
