Your Guide to ProFractional Laser Skin Resurfacing

Are you tired of your uneven skin tone and texture? Ready to remove your scar? Now is the time to start thinking about ProFractional laser skin resurfacing treatments. These treatments help you get rid of your acne scars, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores, and more without having an extended recovery period like traditional laser resurfacing treatments. Let’s dive deeper into what you can expect when you choose Sciton® ProFractional laser resurfacing.

What is ProFractional Laser Skin Resurfacing?

The Sciton® ProFractional laser skin resurfacing system is a cosmetic procedure that uses a micro-ablative laser system to target your problem areas without the extensive downtime and recovery period associated with traditional laser skin resurfacing. This treatment not only targets your uneven skin tone and texture, but it also helps to prevent signs of aging from appearing in the future by boosting your body’s natural production of collagen and elastin. This means you get long-term results with just a few treatments. The procedure can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms and hands.

What Makes ProFractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Different?

ProFractional laser skin resurfacing is different from traditional ablative or fractional laser skin resurfacing because of the specialized and advanced micro-ablative laser technology. This cutting-edge technology utilizes an intensive erbium:YAG laser to treat your problem areas at their very core without harming the rest of the skin surrounding them. Because this treatment only targets areas that need to be treated and leaves the rest of the healthy skin untouched, healing happens faster than with traditional ablative techniques.

What Can I Expect During my ProFractional Laser Resurfacing Treatment?

Before your treatment begins, you can expect our expert professionals to cleanse and apply a topical anesthetic to your treated area. This is just to ensure you remain as comfortable as possible throughout the entirety of your treatment. Once numb, the ProFractional laser system will be carefully and strategically used to target your problem areas. These areas include:

  • Brown spots
  • Acne scars or red and raised scars
  • Fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Loss of skin elasticity
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Hyperpigmentation

What Results Can I Expect From ProFractional Laser Resurfacing?

Following your ProFractional therapy treatment, you may notice your skin is red and sensitive, similar to the sensation of a sunburn. This is normal and typically resolves on its own within a few days of treatment. You’ll be able to see the results of your treatment after just two to three weeks! We may recommend you get a series of treatments spaced several weeks apart for your ultimate desired look.
