What is ProFractional Resurfacing?
ProFractional is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional uses a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short. ProFractional can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is used most for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Post-traumatic scars
- Acne Scars
- Age spots
- Sun spots
How does ProFractional Resurfacing work?
ProFractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the bodys natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate the production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars, and other irregularities.
What should I expect after a ProFractional Resurfacing treatment?
Initially, you may experience some pinpoint bleeding and 2-4 days of redness and swelling with this procedure, depending on the depth of treatment. Most patients can get back to work and apply make-up within 1-3 days after the treatment however more aggressive treatments my result in longer downtime.
ProFractional Resurfacing next steps
It is important to follow your physicians instructions which may include some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
