ProFractional Therapy

Dramatic results with minimal downtime

What is ProFractional Therapy?
ProFractional Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is performed in your physician’s office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome. This treatment is mostly used for individual with acne scars, burn scars and other selected conditions.

Example of Profactional Therapy

How does it work?
ProFractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities. ProFractional laser treatment works on the same principal as aerating your lawn. Each channel in the skin creates new collagen similar to new grass root formation in your lawn. For best results with acne scarring a series of 4-6 treatments are usually required to achieve approximately 50% improvement. Treatments are usually performed once every 1-2 months.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though many people also treat the chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your physician.

What are the results?
As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs during the 4 to 6 months following your treatment.
