ProFractional therapy is ideally suited to reverse the signs of aging. This innovative laser treatment effectively targets collagen in your skin to diminish wrinkles, fine lines, and scars, and helps improve skin laxity to give you younger looking, thicker and more vibrant skin. ProFractional therapy is often combined with other laser therapies (Microlaser Peel, or BBL/Fotofacial) to provide more dramatic, faster results, and can be done on specific areas of the face or body.
How does ProFractional Therapy work?
Profractional treatment produces thousands of microscopic dot-like holes within the treated tissue—hence, only a fraction is actually treated. This is what is commonly referred to as fractional laser therapy. Each of these holes stimulates the production of new collagen, and repairing/reformatting of older collagen and damage. The end result is a thickening of the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars. Because the surrounding tissue around the tiny hole is not affected, the skin heals faster and recovery time is short.
What results can I expect from ProFractional Therapy?
ProFractional can treat a variety of skin problems, including wrinkles and fine lines, unveven texture, skin laxity, acne scars, and other scarring issues.
What is recovery like?
The most common side effects are swelling, redness and a sunburn-like sensation, which will usually subside in the first few hours, although it may also take one or two days. Peeling may also occur but is rare. You will need to apply sunscreen of SPF 30 or higher during recovery. Most patients can return to work or school a few days after treatment. Recovery is improved and will be faster with an appropriate home skin care regimen.
