Fraxel Dual for Neck + Chest 2nd Treatment

My biggest skin regret is being a sun worshipper!Tanning ruined my skin and now I’m covered with spots and discolorations… Fortunately there are treatments that can correct some of that damage like a Fraxel Dual laser treatment.

Fraxel Dual is a powerful laser that can erase sun spots and help reverse sun damage!

I previously had 1 Fraxel Dual treatment on my neck & chest (see post here) and today I have the results of my 2nd Fraxel Dual treatment to show you.

I’m 56 and was a sun worshipper for 45 years (now reformed). I had the Fraxel procedure done at Skincare Physicians in Chestnut Hill, MA with my regular dermatologist. She used the Fraxel Dual machine using both wavelengths to treat both age spots on the surface and to build collagen. This treatment is non-ablative meaning it doesn’t resurface all the skin. It creates micro injuries in the skin using tiny beams of light that leave the surface of the skin largely unharmed so there’s less recovery & down-time.

I arrived an hour before the treatment for numbing cream and the treatment took about an hour. The cost is usually $2,000 but my dermatologist gave it to me free because I didn’t see results from the 1st treatment I had.

I was much more pleased with the results from the 2nd treatment than the 1st, but as she explained, some cases require more than one treatment to see drastic results because of the amount of sun damage that needs to be undone.

I was hoping for more dramatic results on my neck but my doctor had said the neck will show the least improvement. The skin does look better and the large horizontal wrinkles are definitely reduced.

There’s a huge improvement and reduction in the age spots on my chest!

Now it’s up to me to protect my investment and new (relatively) spot-free skin by staying out of the sun and wearing sunscreen every day!
