Fraxis Duo Fractional CO2 Laser FAQ


The FRAXIS DUO Fractional CO2 Laser is the world’s first cosmetic laser system that combines carbon dioxide fractional laser and micro-needle RF fractional technology. This dual technology ensures significantly improved skin quality and texture through intense superficial stimulation, increased volumetric heating, and deeper heat diffusion. This safe and highly-advanced procedure can be used to treat both the face and body and promotes the reduction of wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, acne scars, uneven texture, pore size, stretch marks and more.


If you’re exhibiting skin imperfections or progressive signs of aging, the FRAXIS DUO Fractional CO2 Laser treatment is a viable alternative to invasive surgical procedures that typically cost more and involve longer downtimes. Patients who undergo this procedure can expect skin that becomes increasingly smoother, clearer, and more rejuvenated after the treatment. FRAXIS is designed to treat and reduce the appearance of the following:

  • Severe signs of sun damage
  • Deeper fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring from acne or surgery
  • Skin irregularities like warts and moles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Age spots
  • Uneven skin tone


Unlike other laser treatments available, this machine compounds fractional CO2 laser and micro-needling with radiofrequency to create a skin rejuvenation powerhouse.

This treatment is highly effective for a wide variety of applications and can treat multiple skin concerns in one session. With the added benefit of the micro-needle RF, this brand-new technology offers the following benefits:

  • Improved skin tone and texture
  • Significantly reduced wrinkles
  • Firmer, lifted skin
  • Pore size reduction
  • Smoother, younger-looking skin


The fractional CO2 laser emits fractionated beams of light that create controlled thermal damage that will be healed by the surrounding tissues naturally, while the micro-needles promote more significant improvement by delivering precisely controlled RF energy at different depths of the dermis and encouraging collagen remodeling within the skin.

We will first apply a topical anesthetic on your entire face or specific target areas and wait until it is sufficiently numb. Alternatively, a sedative may also be used, depending on your anesthetic needs and the extent of the treatment.

We will then begin by making several passes on sections of your face or specific target areas with both the fractional laser and micro-needle handpieces. Heat and tingling sensations can be expected as the laser moves across the skin.

Depending on the size of the target areas, the procedure may take anywhere between 15 to 45 minutes. For a full face treatment, it can last up to two hours.
