ProFractional by Sciton

ProFractional laser offers powerful anti-aging technology.  By providing deep laser resurfacing in a fractionated manner, the skin heals faster and tightens areas of wrinkles, making smoother younger appearing skin.  Results shown here in our beautiful 65 year old patient.  Result shown here is 7 weeks after one session of ProFractional laser resurfacing.

The Basics

ProFractional uses a precise, fractionated laser to target small zones within the skin, leaving surrounding tissue intact. This creates tiny perforations or “micro-channels” that trigger the skin’s natural healing response. As the skin heals, new collagen and elastin are produced, leading to improved texture, firmness, and elasticity. The fractional approach allows for a deeper treatment with less downtime compared to traditional ablative lasers, as the surrounding untreated tissue aids in quicker healing.

ProFractional offers several key benefits:

  • Customizable Treatments: The laser settings can be adjusted to target specific skin concerns, including wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage. This customization allows practitioners to tailor the treatment to each individual’s unique needs and desired outcomes.
  • Reduced Downtime: Due to its fractional nature, ProFractional typically has shorter recovery times compared to fully ablative laser treatments. While there may be some redness and swelling, most people can resume their daily activities within a few days to a week.
  • Versatility: ProFractional is versatile and can be used on various skin types and tones. It can also be applied to different areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands, offering a comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation.
  • Long-lasting Results: The collagen and elastin stimulated by ProFractional can continue to improve skin quality over time, with results that can last for several months to a year or longer, depending on skincare and sun protection practices.

Who is a good candidate?

ProFractional is suitable for individuals seeking to address a range of skin concerns without extensive downtime. It is ideal for those who wish to:

  • Improve Skin Texture and Tone: ProFractional can smooth out uneven texture, reduce fine lines, and improve overall skin tone.
  • Minimize Scars and Pigmentation: The treatment can help reduce the appearance of acne scars and other types of pigmentation issues.
  • Avoid Prolonged Downtime: ProFractional is a good option for those who need a quicker recovery compared to more aggressive laser treatments.
