Skin resurfacing with Frax 1940 fractional handpiece


With non-ablative treatments growing in importance, Candela is excited to announce availability of the Frax 1940™ fractional handpiece, available on both the Nordlys™ and Frax Pro™ systems.1-3

The Frax 1940 handpiece achieves controlled superficial depths of focal epidermal effect, without skin ablation. A recent clinical study showed high rates of improvement following skin resurfacing treatments to photoaged skin (90% of assessments reported as improved), along with high patient satisfaction. Clinical photography demonstrated visible improvement in as little as two treatments.4
