WHY AT MONA DERMATOLOGY?
At MONA Dermatology we understand the importance of entrusting your skin to a professional. We were the first office in the Cincinnati area to offer Fraxel Dual in 2008. As experts in laser resurfacing, we know how to make sure you get the best results in the safest way possible. A thorough consultation with pre and post care is part of every full Fraxel Dual procedure.
WHAT TO EXPECT
We go over your pretreatment consult to go over what to expect during your Fraxel. We will also give you some prescriptions to get filled prior to your procedure.
Once ready for the treatment, our nurse will remove your numbing and place metal goggles on you to protect your eyes. During the treatment, you will feel some stinging like rubber band snaps in the treatment area.
You will feel like your face is hot like a sunburn. This will last for 2-4 hours. Please follow our carefully designed post treatment instructions for the best results.
FRAXEL DUAL FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
HOW DOES FRAXEL WORK?
Unlike earlier laser devices, the Fraxel Dual Laser Systems treat microscopic volumes of skin with each unique pulse, leaving the surrounding area intact for faster healing compared with traditional CO2 laser resurfacing.
HOW LONG WILL MY APPOINTMENT TAKE?
Plan on being at the office for about an hour. Our trained nurses will take pictures and apply a topical numbing for about 20 minutes. The procedure will take about 15-20 minutes.
DOES FRAXEL HURT?
Fraxel has some mild discomfort during the procedure. Afterwards, your skin will feel hot like a sunburn. It should not hurt after the treatment.
IS FRAXEL SAFE?
The Fraxel is safe in the hands of a trained professional. It works best on skin types I-III. If you have darker skin color, we may want to do a test spot to make sure that this laser is the right choice for you.
WHEN WILL I START SEEING RESULTS?
You will see some improvement within 1 week, but more results will be seen after 3 months when the collagen starts rebuilding.
AM I A CANDIDATE?
If you have concerns over texture, pore size, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles Fraxel may be right for you. This laser is safer to use in lighter skin types.
