What is Fraxel Dual® Laser?

Fraxel Dual® 1550/1927 is used to help clients treat damaged skin and address issues like sun spots, wrinkles and other common signs of aging. Fraxel® treatment is a unique, noninvasive skin resurfacing procedure approved by the FDA since 2003, and has been safely used by our skin experts to improve skin health and texture for many clients.

WHAT IS THE FRAXEL LASER USED FOR?

Revive uses the Fraxel Dual® laser to treat uneven pigmentation and deep wrinkles, acne scarring, as well as sunspots, melasma, and actinic keratosis. Although the Fraxel Dual® resurfacing treatments are most commonly performed on facial skin, Revive at The Group Med Spa specialists have successfully used the procedure on other parts of the body prone to sun damage, including the neck, chest, and hands.*

BENEFITS OF FRAXEL DUAL®:

  • Improved tone and texture
  • Removal of unwanted brown spots
  • Effective treatment of actinic keratosis 
  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Improved appearance of surgical and acne scars

  • How does a Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment work?

    Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 laser treatment targets aging and sun-damaged skin with microscopic laser columns that penetrate deep into your skin to expedite your body’s remodeling of collagen. And since the laser treats only a fraction of tissue at a time, it leaves the surrounding tissue intact, which promotes very rapid healing. Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment resurfaces your skin by stimulating the growth of new, healthy skin cells from the inside out.

  • What precautions should I take after a Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment?

    Wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher, avoid direct sun exposure for at least 3 months after your last treatment, and wear a wide-brimmed hat when you're in the sun.

  • How long do the positive effects of Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatments last?

    It depends on your particular condition and how you care for your skin. Once your skin is treated, continue to protect it as described above. Your physician will give you specific advice based on your individual needs.

  • Does a Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment hurt?

    Most patients describe an increased sensation of heat during the treatment. To minimize discomfort, topical anesthesia is applied before the procedure and cold air is used on the treatment area during the procedure. After the treatment, most patients feel like they have a sunburn, which usually diminishes in 1 to 3 hours.

  • How many Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatments will I need and how will they be spaced?

    Clinical studies suggest that on average, an effective treatment regimen is 3 to 5 sessions spaced about 2 to 4 weeks apart. Depending on your condition and schedule, you and the physician may choose to space treatment sessions further apart. Results are immediate and progressive, with optimal improvement usually visible in 2 to 3 months. This time frame and treatment structure allow for healing and the production of new collagen to replace damaged tissue.

  • How are Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatments performed?

    First, your skin will be cleansed. Then, about 60 minutes prior to treatment, a topical anesthetic ointment will be applied to the treatment area. The Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 procedure takes 20 to 25 minutes for a full face.

  • What FDA clearances has Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment received?

    Wrinkles around the eyes (periorbital wrinkles)
    Acne scars
    Surgical scars
    Age spots/sunspots (pigmented lesions)
    Melasma (irregular patches of brown skin on the forehead, cheeks, upper lip and nose)
    Actinic Keratosis
    Skin resurfacing

  • What are the benefits of Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatments?

    Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin
    Improved tone and texture
    Reduction of unwanted brown spots
    Reduced fine lines and wrinkles around the eyes
    Improved appearance of acne scars and surgical scars

  • How much does a Fraxel DUAL 1550/1927 treatment cost?

    Treatment pricing will vary depending on individual skin conditions and desired clinical outcomes, as well as regional location and preferred provider. Please visit our Physician Locator to find providers in your area who can provide accurate pricing information.

What Our Clients Say

Walking into this space is like stepping into a bubble of love and beauty. The staff were all so welcoming and friendly. The services provided are superb. I loved my massage with Angela. Thank you for what you all do to help the rest of us feel ah-MAZING!

– Debra

My first trip to Revive was today and it was everything I had hoped it to be. I had a 90-minute massage. It was absolutely amazing and I am definitely rebooking another with her. So much relief with TMJ and muscle tension. After the massage, I had my skin consultation with Kisha and continued to be amazed by the level of professionalism and knowledge, as well as the friendly and genuine service. I have booked again next week for my first Dysport session. All my friends and coworkers have asked for the outcome of my spa visit and it's definitely a 2 THUMBS UP! Thank you for a great experience from the check-in staff all the way to the end of my sessions. The facility is beautiful as well!

– Leah

I love the privacy of the relaxation area so we aren't awkwardly sitting together in the open lobby, especially when I was nervous before my first appointment! Oh, and your treatment rooms are awesome. I've been to specialists' offices that were tiny and cramped in comparison.

– Jessica

I drove two hours from my home, past Iowa City and Cedar Rapids, to Revive for toxin and lip filler. I have done my research on injectables for a while now and was impressed with Revive's website. Professional and appealing!

– Sandy

First time getting lip filler, I was so nervous! Jodi Arp was my injector and she was amazing! She made me feel so comfortable and at ease! My lips look so great I couldn’t be happier! I will definitely be going back!

– Ellen

Everyone at Revive is so professional and kind. They are so informative and knowledgeable. I have never felt any pressure to do anything, if anything, they tend to start small and make sure their clients are happy and getting what they want! They are amazing! I cannot say enough great things about them!

When I step into your spa it feels like a mini vacation! From the attention to detail when checking in, the beautiful space to relax in prior to the appointment, and the incredibly comfortable atmosphere for the facial. I love every moment.

I had a 60-minute sports massage with Angela. She was amazing! Very knowledgeable and super friendly. I can't say enough good things.

– Marsha

Revive was initially recommended to me by friends, I've been a client now for a few different treatments. I received Dysport from Katie and Kisha and they are both amazing! On my last visit, I had a consultation for lip injections. At my consultation, Kisha provided me with Restylane Kysse lip injections. Kisha is a true artist! I am completely obsessed with my lips! Kisha was so informative, knowledgeable, and sweet!

– Tanya

I was really impressed with how Kisha mapped out my face before she injected my Botox. I have had Botox at other places and have never experienced this. Her experience and treatment process truly put me at ease during my appointment. I will definitely be back!

– Reece

I have been extremely satisfied with my experiences at Revive! The front desk staff is extremely friendly when you arrive. Katie, who I receive my Dysport injections from, is SO nice and very knowledgeable! My questions never go unanswered!

– Rachel

I have tried a few places since moving to the Quad Cities from Chicago and finally found this gem. They did an awesome job with my Dysport injections and really listened to what I was asking them to do. They far surpassed my expectations and the place is clean as a freaking whistle! My mother was in town visiting from Atlanta and they did hers as well. She was also beyond pleased with the results and facility overall. Highly recommended, and I'll definitely be back for more soon. Thank you, Revive!
