Our Sciton Profractional™ laser is designed to dramatically repair fine lines, wrinkles and acne scars while improving skin texture and pigmentation – even on delicate skin. Profractional™ is a proven, safe approach to repairing aging and sun damaged skin, with many of the benefits of ablative laser skin resurfacing, but without the downtime, side effects and lengthy recovery period. Combining Profractional™ with the already proven MicroLaser Peel™ (MLP) enables plastic surgeons to treat 100% of the epidermis to remove surface signs of aging with variable density treatment of the deeper tissue for rapid, painless results in one complete treatment.
ProFractional™ is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little to no 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:
ProFractional™ uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. ezones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for ProFractional™. Acqua Blu offers complimentary consultations with our physician assistants to learn more about ProFractional™ so you can determine if this treatment might be right for you.
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
ProFractional™ is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our office. The procedure normally takes 30 – 45 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated. A numbing cream may be applied in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure. Furthermore, Acqua Blu has recently added the Zimmer Cryo 6 to our practice. This Zimmer Cooler provides optimum patient comfort during the Halo procedure.
ProFractional™ is typically done in a series of 1 to 3treatments, spaced 3 – 6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Your skin care specialist will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your skin care specialist may also combine ProFractional™ with a MicroLaserPeel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only about 1 – 3 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 1 – 2 days after the treatment. What special after-treatment care will I need? It is important to follow post operative 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.
