Fraxel For Retexturing
Fraxel Dual laser is a safe, non-invasive procedure that will dramatically improve your skin’s texture and appearance. At River Medical we use what is called the Fraxel Dual technology which uses two wavelengths of laser light. One that targets issues on the surface of the skin like pigmentation, brown spots and melasma; and a second that penetrates much deeper to treat poor texture, fine lines and wrinkles and acne scarring

Prices from €265 per treatment (eyes) up to €600 per treatment (full face). There is a significant cost saving when you book a course of treatments, it can bring the cost down to just €484 per treatment for the full face.
Who will I meet at my consulation?
You will meet with one of our Registered General Nurses at your free consultation who will carry out a detailed skin analysis of your skin and make a recommendation on the best course of action for you and your skin.
Who will carry out my treatment?
A highly experienced, River Medical, Registered General Nurse will carry out your treatment.
How many treatments will I need?
Many people see results after just one treatment but generally a course of Fraxel treatments will be recommended to get the best results. Your River Medical Nurse will discuss this in great detail at your free consultation.
Does it hurt?
As is the case with other laser treatments, the sensation is often described as a gradual increase of heat within the skin which is uncomfortable but tolerable. You don’t have to worry though as you will have a local anaesthetic applied to the area before the treatment. Skin can appear slightly pinkish and swollen for several days after the procedure but generally most people can return to their regular activities after a day or two.
What areas can I treat?
Fraxel dual can be used to treat acne scars, brown spots, sun spots, pigmentation and lines and wrinkles / ageing skin on both the face and body.
How long does it take?
The length of each treatment varies depending on the concern and area being treated but generally a treatment will take between 30 to 60 minutes. Your River Medical Nurse will discuss this in great detail at your free consultation.
How soon will I see results?
Most people see results after the very first treatment but of course results depend on the area being treated and your own individual skin concern, and how well your skin responds to the treatment.
How long will the results last?
Once the course is complete and the desired results achieved, results will really last into the years with top-ups recommended, perhaps once per year thereafter. Results and the length of the results really does vary from patient to patient and depend on your own individual skin type and skin concern but our door is always open to come back in for a free re-assessment, at any stage after you finish your course of treatments.
Is there any downtime?
Due to the accuracy of the Fraxel laser, there is some downtime, typically 24 to 48 hours but this will be discussed with you at your consultation.
