However, they achieve this action at a deeper level through the action of short pulses of light that penetrate the skin’s layers to stimulate the growth of new collagen fibers. At triple board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Henry Mentz’s Houston MedSpa, our skin specialists use laser skin resurfacing machines, including Fraxel Dual, Clear & Brilliant that provide the following benefits:

  • fade brown spots such as freckles and age spots
  • soften fine lines and wrinkles
  • tighten the skin
  • diminish surgical scars
  • fade rosacea and facial spider veins
  • improve acne-prone skin
  • fade birthmarks

Procedure Technique

Fraxel Dual 1550/1927

Acne scars, sun damage and genetics can contribute to rough skin texture and uneven complexion. Fraxel is proven laser technology that can help reverse the visible effects of aging, naturally helping you look as young as you feel. The Fraxel Dual 150/1927 offers two lasers: one to target the surface for tone and texture and one to target deeper layers to treat fine lines and acne scarring.

Clear & Brilliant

The Clear & Brilliant laser works like the Fraxel, creating millions of microscopic treatment areas, getting rid of damaged skin and allowing new healthy cells to grow. It is effective for improving skin tone and texture, for an even, radiant complexion.

Fraxel Dual?

Fraxel is effective on:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles – crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
  • Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
  • Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition


For skin resurfacing, both the Fraxel Dual and the Clear & Brilliant are great options for patients wanting to improve the tone and texture of their skin, reverse fine lines and wrinkles and prevent signs of aging. The Fraxel is a more aggressive laser that penetrates deeper for better treatment of scars and wrinkles. It is also effective in reduction of stretch marks and large pores. The Clear & Brilliant is less aggressive and works best for surface tone and texture, but also promotes healthy cell growth for prevention of future aging.


Results can be seen immediately but will gradually improve for the following 3 to 6 months. Additionally, this noninvasive and safe treatment is a useful to enhance the results of facial rejuvenation surgery for skin quality issues such as hyper pigmentation, acne, pores, fine lines, overall skin quality, and glow.
