Fraxel Laser Resurfacing Melbourne

Fraxel DUAL, also known as Fraxel Laser Resurfacing, is a non-invasive laser treatment that penetrates the epidermis and targets the deeper layers of the skin to help improve the appearance of skin affected by ageing, sun exposure, scarring or pigmentation. This advanced light-based therapy works by targeting specific treatment areas with laser energy to stimulate the skin’s healing process and provide natural rejuvenation and skin renewal by promoting collagen production.



As the first fractional laser, this skin resurfacing treatment uses a Fraxel Dual Laser system with microscopic laser columns to penetrate deep into the dermal layer and deliver transformative results with minimal downtime. It was made to treat several skin concerns, including skin pigmentation, sun damage, fine lines and wrinkles, acne scarring and surgical or traumatic scars.

The fraxel treatment offers a number of benefits. By stimulating your body’s natural wound healing response it boosts the growth of newer, healthier skin cells that replace the old, damaged cells. As a result, it can help improve the skin’s tone and texture and assist in minimising the appearance of acne scarring, pigmentation and the visible signs of ageing.

Suitable For

A Fraxel laser resurfacing treatment in Melbourne is suitable for patients with concerns relating to ageing, scarred or sun-damaged skin, including:

  • Acne scarring
  • Skin scars
  • Poor texture
  • Fine lines
  • Pigmentation


How does Fraxel Laser Resurfacing work?

Fraxel laser DUAL operates on two nanometre wavelengths, the 1550 and the 1927. The 1550 stimulates collagen production and improves scarring, while the 1927 targets pigmentation and uneven texture. This versatility allows your dermal clinician to tailor the treatment to your specific needs, and they may use one or both wavelengths in the course of your treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?

Your clinician will assess your skin and devise an appropriate treatment plan tailored to your needs, whether the Fraxel laser is for acne scars or another targeted concern. A registered nurse will apply a numbing cream to your face or the treatment area and then the clinician will administer the treatment with a handheld device.

How long does the treatment take?

Your Melbourne Fraxel laser resurfacing appointment will take approximately one and a half hours. Only 20 minutes will be spent under the Fraxel laser. The remainder of the time is spent taking photos, applying numbing cream, and undergoing post-laser cooling. Many patients report a noticeable Fraxel laser before and after the first appointment.

How much discomfort is involved?

The application of numbing cream should keep you comfortable. Fraxel is often described as feeling like a rolling wave of hot prickles going across your skin.

What can I expect after the procedure?

You can expect some downtime as Melbourne Fraxel laser resurfacing treatments require 7 days for complete healing. Immediately post-treatment your skin will look red and feel hot for 2-3 hours. On the first day of healing, this will have faded to pink and may feel like sandpaper. It may also adopt a bronze, tanned look. The swelling will reach its peak on the second day, and skin flaking will occur on days three and four. From day five to seven, there will be residual flaking, and new, pink skin will be exposed underneath. You may wear mineral makeup after day five, but not full makeup until after day seven. Your clinician will advise you of appropriate aftercare.

How many treatments will I need?

This depends on your desired outcome. For some, a single treatment will be sufficient, while for others 2-5 may be needed for optimal results.

What are the results?

Once you have finished healing, your skin will feel softer and you should notice improvements in skin tone, colour and texture. Results improve gradually over the course of 3-6 months as collagen is produced and the skin naturally refreshes itself.

Typical results our patients report include:

  • Smoother, fresher, younger-looking skin
  • Reduced fine lines and wrinkles on the face
  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Reduced unwanted brown spots and pigmentation
  • Improved appearance of scars and stretch marks
  • These results can last for years if maintained with a skin care regime.

What downtime can I expect?

For treatments of the face, the healing process takes about 7 days. Immediately post treatment your skin will look red and feel warm for 2-3 hours. On the first day of healing this will fade to pink and may feel like sandpaper. It may also adopt a bronze, tanned look.

Following the Melbourne Fraxel laser for pigmentation, scars, or other concerns, the swelling will reach its peak on the second day, and skin flaking will occur on days three and four. From day five to seven, there will be residual flaking as new, pink skin is exposed underneath. You may wear mineral makeup at this time, but not full makeup until after the seventh day. Your clinician will advise you of appropriate aftercare.

For treatments administered to the body or the neck and décolletage, it can take up to two weeks to heal, but these sites can easily be covered with clothing.
