At Main Street Medical we lead the way, introducing new, ground breaking treatments and methods. One worth mentioning is the Fraxis Duo.
Like most things that include the word ‘duo’, the Fraxis Duo by Cryomed is a combination of two different and successful treatments. Fractional CO2 laser and Micro Needling. Fraxis Duo is the first multi-platform CO2 laser which combines with RF technology (micro needling) to double the effects. Let us explain.
What is Fractional CO2 Laser?
Fractional CO2 Laser works on a superficial area of the skin, improving deep wrinkles and fine lines, skin texture, blotchiness around the face and neck as well as acne and other scarring. It has proven to be an effective treatment for both sun damage and precancerous growths as well.
How does Micro Needling make it better?
The way micro needling works is with a tool called a ‘Derma roller’. The Derma Roller, laced with tiny little needles, creates micro-injuries when rolled across the skin’s surface, forcing the brain to send collagen to the skin, in order for it to repair. By doing so, the tiny little pin pricks are repaired very quickly and then some! This means that you are left with beautiful, glowing skin that looks, feels and actually IS healthier than before.
Now, we have a combination of the two treatments, the Fraxis Duo. Combined, the two treatments target two completely separate areas. The CO2 Laser targets the superficial area while the Micro Needling targets deeper into the skin, meaning it achieves a great deal more during the one session. A 2-4-1 deal! Who doesn’t love that!?
Who needs the Fraxis Duo?
The Fraxis Duo can be used to treat a wide variety of issues. Whether it be scarring, photo-ageing, stretch marks on the face or body, it works wonders. With the use of the Fraxis Duo you will notice the following:
On the face: Better tone and texture, reduction in acne scarring, pore size and wrinkles as well as skin resurfacing and tightening.
On the body: Scar and stretch mark reduction, treatment of Keratosis Pilaris (a condition that causes the skin to become rough and dry in patches) and Hyperhidrosis (sweating abnormally).
Unlike some aggressive lasers, redness and swelling diminish quicker with the use of Fraxis Duo, and alongside increased effectiveness there is a large reduction in side effects. Fraxis Duo is fantastic on fine lines, skin laxity, pigmentation, poor tone and many other skin specific conditions that can benefit from this laser/needling combination.
In conclusion, the Fraxis Duo is a single machine with multiple uses. It can assist in the treatment of various skin issues and works wonders for a wide range of clients.
