Improve the Overall Appearance of Your Skin!
ProFractional Laser Therapy is a quick, comfortable laser procedure, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. This no-downtime procedure is performed in our office and can be custom–tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
Using tiny laser beams, the ProFractional laser treats thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This skin’s wound-healing response creates new collagen which makes the skin firmer and more resilient.
We’ll assess your skin condition and cosmetic goals, and if a combination of resurfacing and minimal downtime is desired, the ProFractional laser could be very good for you.
Most skin areas can be treated with the ProFractional Laser. Popular treatments include the face and neck, although the chest and hands are also good areas to treat.
You may need just one treatment, as many patients have achieved excellent results with just one. However, the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient. We’ll personalize a plan based on your specific needs, and may choose to combine this therapy with other aesthetic procedures to personalize your treatment to get you the results desired.
The treatment area will be cleaned and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. A laser handpiece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the laser energy is applied, you will hear a rapid succession of snapping sounds. The handpiece will be moved around to adjacent locations until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.
Probably not. ProFractional Laser Therapy is regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the depth of the treatment you’re getting.
Straight after the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation similar to a sunburn. We’ll advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics and the application of an ointment to keep the skin moist. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure and use some level of solar protection until fully healed. Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a day or two after the treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.
As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit is the collagen remodeling that occurs 4-6 months post-treatment.
