Dramatically improve wrinkles, scars & sun-damaged skin with ProFractional™
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. ezones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.
Who should consider a ProFractional™ treatment?
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for ProFractional™. Ask your skin care specialist if ProFractional™ is right for you.
What areas can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your skin care specialist.
What is a ProFractional™ procedure like?
ProFractional™ is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our office. The procedure 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.
How many ProFractional™ treatments will I need?
ProFractional™ is typically done in a series of 1 – 4 treatments, spaced 3 – 6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Your skin care specialist will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your skin care specialist may also combine ProFractional™ with a MicroLaserPeel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only about 1 – 3 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 1 – 2 days after the treatment. What special after-treatment care will I need? It is important to follow your skin care specialist’s instructions which may include some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
