ProFractional laser treatment dramatically improves wrinkles, scars & sun-damaged skin with minimal down time
What is ProFractional?
ProFractional is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little to no downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional uses a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.
What conditions can be treated with ProFractional?
ProFractional can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is used most for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Post-traumatic scars
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Aging and sun-damaged skin
How does the ProFractional laser work?
ProFractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural heaing process and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.
What areas can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated, including the face, neck, chest and hands.
What is involved in the procedure?
A ProFractional laser treatment normally takes 15-30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated. A numbing cream may be applied in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure.
What results can I expect?
Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a day or two after the treatment.
As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs 4 to 6 months after the treatment.
