Fraxel® Dual Laser


Fraxel® Dual Laser (Fraxel®) is a non-ablative fractionated laser that is used to significantly rejuvenate skin. It is an incredibly effective treatment for wrinkles, acne scars, pigmented lesions, and for improving overall skin tone and texture. Fraxel® starts from $1,150 for one area, typically the face, with pricing available for neck, décolletage and hands.

If you are new to this treatment, we advise you to book a consultation to discuss your suitability and any required treatment preparation.

Fraxel® works by penetrating the top layers of your skin a fraction at a time via hundreds of thousands of microscopic columns that stimulate the production of new skin cells and collagen. By leaving most of the surrounding skin intact, your skin’s natural rejuvenation process kicks in, smoothing wrinkles and scars, eliminating pigmentation and creating cleaner, healthier skin.  

Fraxel® is used to treat the face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, legs and back.  


Results typically occur five days after treatment with optimum results appearing at two to three months. 


Advise your clinician if you: 

  • Are taking or have taken prescription Vitamin A tablets in the past six months  
  • Are taking any medications that may cause light sensitivity

Note: do not cease prescribed medications without first consulting with your general practitioner.  



Prior to your first treatment, our clinician will consult with you to assess your suitability for Fraxel® and discuss any concerns or questions you may have.  

During the treatment, the Fraxel® may cause an uncomfortable but tolerable hot, prickling sensation. A local numbing agent will be applied to ease discomfort.  

Post treatment, your skin will remain hot for three to four hours but will dissipate significantly within the first hour. Redness and swelling will be present immediately after the treatment with most swelling noticeable the morning after, under the eye area. This can last between two to three days. While most redness resolves during the first week, a rosy ‘glow’ can remain for several weeks. 

Your skin may feel tight, dry and itchy during the week post treatment. It often begins to bronze, peel and flake about three days after treatment. You may notice the skin has a ‘sandpaper’ texture a few days afterwards.  


Anyone who: 

  • Has skin cancer or lesions at the treatment area 
  • Has active skin infection in the treatment area including acne, psoriasis, eczema, dermatitis, active herpes simplex
  • Has an allergy to lidocaine or tetracaine anaesthetic
  • Is using topicals that may cause irritation within the last two weeks e.g. peels, retinol, Efudex, corticosteroids
  • Is pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Has epilepsy
  • Has systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE) – increased light sensitivity
  • Has a history of dermal light sensitivity/rash
  • Has used prescription Vitamin A tablets in the past six months
  • Is taking medications or supplements that cause light sensitivity
  • Has had excessive sun exposure in the past two weeks
  • Has applied fake tan in the past two weeks
  • Has permanent dermal filler or has any planned dermal filler procedures 2 weeks pre/post appointment

If you are unsure, contact your clinic.  

  • Hot skin similar to a sunburn like sensation which dissipates significantly within the first hour and is usually resolved within three to four hours.
  • Redness and swelling with most swelling noticeable the morning after under the eye area. This can last between two to three days. A rosy glow can remain for several weeks. 
  • Skin tightness, itchiness, and dryness (like sandpaper) which is usually resolved within three to four days. This is completely normal as the old, damaged skin cells are brought up to the surface and shed – leaving renewed, healthy skin. It is important that you do not scratch or exfoliate during the healing process.  
  • Avoid scratching or exfoliating during the healing process
  • Cease using any active skincare products for the first week and use our Artisan Recovery kit
  • Avoid sun exposure for two to four weeks and always wear SPF 50+ 

To maintain your skin health, an annual Fraxel treatment is recommended.
