ProFractional Therapy™ is an ablative laser that works to deeply restore skin from the inside out. Over a series of treatments, deep acne scars and wrinkles will plump up and diminish in appearance.
The ProFractional laser targets damaged tissue (tough scar tissue, acne pitting) by creating tiny microchannels through the skin’s surface and deep into the dermal layers. As these microchannels heal they contract, causing the skin and dermal layers to tighten. This also stimulates the skin’s natural healing process to form skin-renewing collagen. As damaged cells are replaced with new and healthy tissue, your skin appears fresher and younger with improved tone and texture
Recovery following profractional laser resurfacing is generally quick. Patients may experience some mild redness similar to a light sunburn; however, makeup can be worn within two to three days of treatment to help camouflage any remaining redness. Most patients find that they can return to work and other normal activities within one to three days. The treated skin will need to be protected from the sun for a period of time after treatment.
It may be necessary to have 2-4 treatments about 8-12 weeks apart. It is successful in the treatment of:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Smile lines
- Post-traumatic scars
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Aging and sun-damaged skin
