Candela announced the availability of the Frax Pro system. The FDA-cleared, non-ablative fractional device is the first platform featuring dual-depth skin resurfacing with both Frax 1550 and the novel Frax 1940 applicators. The two modalities target different skin layers, stimulating growth of new collagen, revealing smoother, more brilliant skin. The Frax 1940 handpiece delivers a 1940 nm wavelength laser beam for a shallow, epidermal approach, with focal reach extending to approximately 200 μm in depth. The 1550 nm wavelength of the Frax 1550 handpiece penetrates deeper, with histological analysis showing up to 800 μm penetration. Clinical studies demonstrate high rates of textural improvement and patient satisfaction with the Frax 1550 and Frax 1940 handpieces. "With use of both applicators achieving dual depth resurfacing, we saw a complementary effect," says Jill Waibel, M.D. of Miami Dermatology and Laser Institute. "Additionally, patients treated in our clinic were extremely pleased with new Frax 1940 treatment results. The outcomes clearly demonstrated intended results of skin resurfacing with improvement in both textural irregularities and skintone."
