Profractional Laser Treatment
Say goodbye to wrinkles, fine lines and other cosmetic skin imperfections. With ProFractional, you enjoy all of the benefits of laser skin resurfacing – without the extensive downtime!
What is Profractional?
The Sciton ProFractional laser delivers incredible skin resurfacing benefits. It works by targeting small portions of damaged skin and leaving the surrounding areas intact. This allows the procedure to correct a variety of conditions, while promoting a rapid recovery.
Achieve total skin rejuvenation utilizing the latest and best technology has to offer with ScitonProFractional treatment with minimal downtime. Unlike full field facial 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 results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
ProFractional utilizes an erbium:YAG laser, which was chosen due to its high ablation efficiency. Erbium has a much higher absorption in the target chromophore water than CO2 which gives erbium the ability to vaporize tissue with very little thermal conduction resulting in minimal procedure discomfort.
What can ProFractional do for you?
ProFractional can treat a wide variety of cosmetic imperfections, including:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin texture irregularities
- Certain scars
- Lax skin
ProFractional treatments dramatically improve the overall appearance of your skin including tone, texture, acne scars, and wrinkles. Dr. Gross can select treatment depth and density to provide uniform color, texture and tone to the face and can do so without the scabs, crusting, and the associated long downtime of heavy ablation. Low intensity treatments may require 3 treatments for optimal results with minimal downtime while high intensity treatments may require only 1 treatment but can result in some downtime. ProFractional works very well as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with other treatments like the Micro Laser Peel. Benefits are long lasting.
