Solta Medical, the company that makes Fraxel, has now made a two-in-one laser. Fraxel dual is a non-ablative fractional thulium laser. This is one of 3 Fraxel lasers. Fraxel restore is a non-ablative fractional erbium doped laser and Fraxel repair is a fractional carbon dioxide laser. Fraxel repair will go the deepest into your skin and has wounding that requires downtime. Fraxel retsore targets more superficially iin your skin for fine lines, tone and texture and usually requires a series of treatments for rejuvenation with a few days of mild downtime; redness, little swelling and sandpaper like pepper dots on your skin. Fraxel dual is a bit in-between these 2 lasers. The downtime can be just a bit longer than Restore and the healing process is similar. It targets more the pigmentary and precancerous spots in your skin. This treatment too usually requires a few treatments depending on your specific needs and goals.
