Profractional

ProFractional™ from Sciton is a fractional deep resurfacing laser treatment for addressing brown spots, uneven pigmentation, deep wrinkles, skin texture and pore size. The fractional approach allows for dramatic results with minimal downtime.

Fractional Laser Resurfacing

ProFractional Therapy is a quick, yet highly effective laser procedure, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin with minimal discomfort and downtime.

ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of the skin, ProFractional creates precise, micro columns deep into the dermis (the inner layer of skin) and ablates (vaporizes) the tissue covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing process and the production of skin-renewing collagen resulting in smoother, softer skin that feels better to the touch. The untreated surrounding tissue aids in rapid, uniform healing.

What makes ProFractional unique is the ability to independently control the depth of ablation and coagulation. This leads to positive results that can be seen in fewer treatments and less overall downtime.

Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though many people also treat the chest and hands.

ProFractional Treats:

  • Acne Scars
  • Brown spots and uneven skin tone
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Poor skin texture and aging skin
  • Enlarged pores

Frequently Asked Questions

How many treatments will I need?

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 aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?

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.

Will it be uncomfortable?

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.

What should I expect post-treatment?

Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Specific after-treatment care recommendations will be provided, which may include analgesics and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

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.

What aftercare do I need?

You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet 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.

When should I expect 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.
