Profractional Laser Treatment: Natural Skin Rejuenvation

What is Profractional Laser Treatment?

The ProFractional laser treatment uses a unique resurfacing technique that focuses on improving the overall quality of the skin. Through targeted treatments that drastically reduce healing time, ProFractional can effectively correct textural issues, wrinkles, acne scars, and other imperfections in the skin’s surface.

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. These ablations initiate the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. After the top layer of skin has been resurfaced, the body heals the micro-wounds, which in turn creates heightened collagen and elastin production. The increased production of collagen and elastin lasts long after the skin has healed, for up to 6 months. When more elastin and collagen are present in the skin, the complexion is softer, tauter, and smoother.

What are the benefits?

Profractional laser treatments offer a unique approach to skin rejuvenation, delivering targeted results and faster recovery times compared to traditional resurfacing options. Here’s why they might be appealing:

  • Fractional targeting: Unlike ablative lasers that remove entire layers of skin, profractional lasers create tiny micro-channels deep within the skin. This precise targeting stimulates collagen production without damaging surrounding tissue, leading to faster healing and fewer side effects.
  • Versatility: This technology tackles various concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. By adjusting settings, treatment can be customized to specific needs and desired results.
  • Improved skin texture and tone: As collagen production is stimulated, the skin appears smoother, plumper, and more even-toned. Additionally, profractional lasers can address wrinkles, fine lines, and acne scars for a more youthful appearance.
  • Faster recovery: Compared to traditional laser resurfacing, profractional treatments boast shorter downtime. While mild redness and sensitivity are expected, full healing typically occurs within a week, making it a suitable option for those with busy schedules.

Where can treatment be done?

Profractional Laser Treatment is ideal for minimizing pigment, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and reversing sun damage and discoloration in the face, neck, hands, and décolleté. It can also be used to reduce the appearance of stretchmarks and acne scars.

Who Should Consider Treatment? 

While fairer-skinned clients with prominent wrinkles and fine lines are the best candidates for this treatment, people of all skin types can benefit from the results provided by Profractional Laser Treatment. Those with jowls around their face might have more difficulty with this treatment, as the lasers have more area to cover

How Many Treatments Are Needed?

Patients receiving ProFractional laser treatments can expect remarkable results in just 1 to 3 treatments, while older resurfacing technology often requires 5 to 6 treatments to show similar results.
