What is ProFractional Resurfacing?
ProFractional is an ablative, fractionated laser treatment which is part of the industry-leading Sciton laser system. ProFractional is used to treatment more significant skin issues such as scars (acne, injury, surgical), stretch marks and deeper wrinkles.
How does it work?
Fractional lasers (such as ProFrac) are adjustable to treat a certain percentage or fraction of the skin (eg. 20% or 30%) and adjustable to treat to a certain skin depth. Ablative means they vaporize tissue to stimulate maximum remodeling of the skin (as opposed to just heating tissue). Consequently, ProFractional is both effective and customizable to the needs of the patient. Profractional can also treat to a greater skin depth than many other lasers. Multiple treatments are typically required to achieve optimal results. Topical prescription strength numbing cream is applied before treatment (and optional nitrous oxide is also available) to ensure a comfortable experience. Treatments are typically quick and downtime is variable from 4-7 days. Combining Profractional treatment with PRP post-treatment or Alastin pre and post treatment can shorten downtime and optimize treatment results.
