The Profractional Laser Treatment produces thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment in your skin. This treatment eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells. It also penetrates deeply into the deeper skin (dermis). Just as important, though, are the areas of skin the Profractional laser leaves untouched. For every zone the laser targets and treats intensively, it leaves the surrounding tissue unaffected and intact. This type of treatment allows the skin to heal much faster than if the entire area were treated at once, using the bodies natural healing process to create new, healthy tissue to replace skin imperfections.
This laser is used to treat wrinkling (rhytides) around the mouth, eyes, and other places on the face. It has also been used to improve acne scars, as well as remove age and liver spots, freckles, keratoses and other growths and conditions.
Treatments only take a few minutes and are performed in the doctor’s office with just a topical anesthetic. Treatment plans depend on the extent of the wrinkles, scarring, and/or age spots, however, on average 3 to 4 treatments are needed spaced approximately 2- 3 weeks apart. After the treatment, the area is pink similar to a mild sunburn. Make-up can be applied and the pinkness typically resolves in 2-3 days.
After treatment with the Profractional laser, your skin will become smoother, softer, and fresher with an overall more youthful appearance. Your skin will continue to improve for several months even after your treatments are completed.
