What is ProFractional Laser?
ProFractional Laser is a laser procedure with little to no downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. This treatment uses a laser micro beam 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.
How does the treatment work?
ProFractional Laser 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 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 the 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.
What is this procedure like?
ProFractional Laser is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our office. The procedure normally takes 30-45 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated.
What areas can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
How many treatments will I need?
ProFractional Laser is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 4-8 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Our Physicians will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. You may also combine this treatment 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 will experience redness, resembling a light sunburn, and mild swelling is expected. Complete healing takes anywhere from 1-3 days depending on the depth of the procedure. Most patients can get back to work and apply make-up within 1-2 days after the treatment.
What special aftercare treatment will I need?
It is important to follow post treatment 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.
