The profractional laser is a quick and painless fractionated treatment that can improve the overall appearance of the patient’s skin by reducing the appearance of fine lines, while simultaneously improving skin tone and texture. The beauty of Profractional laser therapy is that your physician has ultimate control and can optimize settings for the patient’s overall needs.
During a Profractional session thousands of microscopic channels are created in the skin. These channels are left surrounded by intact skin, which helps speed the healing process, and in turn makes the treatment and recovery more comfortable. While the deep channels of treated tissue heal, collagen in the skin is strengthened and remodeled. The body’s natural healing process combined with collagen remodeling means that superficial imperfections are almost immediately corrected; while the skin’s tone and texture will continue to improve weeks to months after the treatment.
Typically done in a series of 4 treatments, sessions are usually spaced 6-8 weeks apart.
Healing takes between 5-7 days.
Most areas of the skin can be treated, however, the most popular areas are the face, neck, chest, and hands.
