What is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
ProFractional is Sciton's solution for achieving excellent skin texture resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing, which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body's wound healing response which stimulates fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic. ProFractional laser treatment can be combined with MicroLaserPeelsTM to further enhance your results.
What issues does Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?
Laser Skin Resurfacing is used to treat fine lines, wrinkles, facial folds, scars, hyper pigmentation, age spots, loose skin, and poor skin tone.
What Areas Can be treated?
ProFraction is a fast comfortable procedure that successfully treats the face, neck, chest and hands. This extremely safe treatment can be used on all skin types.
What to expect with Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Prior to the procedure, your medical provider will cleanse the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. An advanced skin cooling system and/or topical anesthetic may be used to keep you as comfortable as possible during your treatment. A laser hand piece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the laser is in use, it sounds like a repetitive snapping sound. A typical session can last anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
How many sessions will I need?
You will get dramatic results with one treatment. However, you may decide to undergo multiple sessions to achieve the best results. Patients may need multiple sessions for deep wrinkles or acne scarring. Treatments are spaced 3 to 6 weeks apart. All patients are unique, during your consultation your medical provider will help you settle on a treatment plan.
What to expect after Resurfacing?
ProFractional minimizes the appearance of scars, wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage and pigment irregularities. Expect younger, healthier skin that glows. Down time depends on the depth of resurfacing. As your skin heals, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, it will take about 4 to 6 months to see the effects of new collagen and smoother skin.
