Fraxis Duo Q & A

What is radiofrequency microneedling?

Trillium Medical Aesthetics & Gynecology is proud to offer the Fraxis Duo laser platform, an advanced treatment system that can deliver numerous different treatments. One of those treatments is radiofrequency (RF) microneedling.

Microneedling is an aesthetic treatment that uses a treatment head covered in sterile needles to create thousands of tiny punctures in the deeper layers of your skin.

Your body responds to those microinjuries with its powerful healing response, creating new collagen to plump and smooth skin and blasting apart areas of hyperpigmentation.

Radiofrequency microneedling introduces RF energy into the microneedling process. The Fraxis Duo system uses a combination of RF energy and an ablative fractional CO2 laser to penetrate even more deeply into the skin. Used together, radiofrequency and microneedling offer impressive results.

What is facial resurfacing?

Facial resurfacing is a medical aesthetics treatment that uses laser energy to remove the outer layers of your skin. The Fraxis Duo system has a special handpiece for laser resurfacing that directs CO2 laser energy into your skin.

These treatments are an excellent way to address moderate to severe signs of aging. A topical anesthetic numbs your skin prior to treatment, which can take an hour or more depending on the size of the treatment area.

You’ll experience a slight stinging or burning sensation after your treatment, and a couple of weeks of crusting and peeling is to be expected. Once the healing process is complete, however, you’ll love your fresh, glowing, and youthful complexion.

What is vaginal rejuvenation?

The Fraxis Duo platform can also be used for vaginal rejuvenation, a process that uses your body’s healing function to restore lost tightness and tone in your vaginal walls.

A thoughtfully designed handpiece is inserted into your vagina to allow the laser energy to penetrate directly into your vaginal walls.

This therapy creates a gentle heat that prompts your body to produce new collagen cells. For many women, treatments improve sensations during sex and restore normal vaginal moisture levels.

Thanks to the Fraxis Duo system, it’s now possible to reverse some of the changes brought on by pregnancy, childbirth, and the aging process.

To explore these and other advanced laser therapies, schedule an appointment online or by phone today. None of these treatments require any advance preparation other than a topical anesthetic, and no significant downtime.
