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.
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®:
If you would like a professional opinion about whether Fraxel® is right for you, or if an alternative may be a better option, schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our certified laser technicians.
Contact our Client Coordinator to schedule your complimentary consultation.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Tattoo Removal with Lisa was lovely and relaxing. She went through a thorough consultation so I knew what to expect. I'm extremely happy with the process and results after just one treatment! I highly recommend Revive and Lisa for any tattoo removal needs. Thank you THANK YOU!– Ann
I just wanted to say that after my appt with Haley last Friday, I was feeling super optimistic that I could have clear skin again. After my chemical peel, my skin continued to get clearer and clearer. I started using the EltaMD Skin Care lotions and really love them. The ladies up front were super nice, as was Haley, and I am grateful for that. Thank you guys so much! I will def be back!!– Terri

Definitely a 5-star Medical Spa!!! Just finished my 1st ever dermaplaning appointment with Morgan. Morgan was very friendly, told me exactly what she was doing and the benefits of dermaplaning. I was so excited to see my results!!– Morgan
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
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
Haley was amazing! She was so nice and so good at explaining everything she was doing, which I appreciated! I will definitely be back for future services with her!– Rachel
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
Mary Johnson did such a great job helping to remove my frown line. I was nervous and she put me right at ease. Quick and no pain! I would highly recommend her. Revive offers such a relaxing atmosphere– Amanda
Mary was great! She spent time with me. She answered all of my questions since this was my first time getting injectables. She really analyzed what would be the best options for me based on my concerns. The results were awesome. I felt like in 2-3 days I could already notice a difference. After two weeks the results were remarkable. I definitely recommend others to consult with Mary and take advantage of Revive's great new client discount!– Jessica
Completely in love with my Dysport results I received from Kisha! She is very knowledgeable, professional, sweet, and personable!– Lana
Express Facial + Brow Tint and Wax with Morgan!! I don’t get much “self-care” time so I chose the Express Facial and it did NOT disappoint! Fresh face and cute brows to start the new year off!– Ashley
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!– Kara
