How does ProFractional differ from other skin resurfacing treatments?
Compared with other skin resurfacing treatments, ProFractional offers excellent results with less downtime, minimal to no discomfort, and a shorter treatment series. Additionally, ProFractional offers physicians the flexibility to treat different skin concerns gently or assertively, as the patient requires. ProFractional can also be combined with other esthetic procedures for further personalization of treatment.

What ares can be treated with ProFractional?
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.
Treats:
• Sun Damage
• Fine Wrinkles
• Melasma
• Acne Scarring
• Improves Crepiness
• Fine Lines Around Eyes and Mouth
• Improves Skin Texture/Tone
• Reduces Precancerous Lesions

How does the treatment work?
ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat 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. The skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which adds firmness and resilience to the skin.

What can I expect during the treatment?
ProFractional therapy is widely regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the depth of treatment. Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area 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.

Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. 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.

When will I see results from the treatment?
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.\

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Your physician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other esthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What type of aftercare is necessary?
Your physician will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist. You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
