The advanced ProFractional™ laser from Sciton is revolutionizing the way we think about skincare. Treatments are comfortable, and require little downtime. Patients can improve the overall appearance of the skin with the simple, non-invasive procedure. Say “‘goodbye” to wrinkles, acne scars, lax skin, and sun damage and say “hello” to smooth, radiant skin.
How Does ProFractionalTM Work?
ProFractional™ laser treatments use thermal energy to create micro-channels in the superficial layers of skin. The procedure triggers your self-healing process to allow beneficial collagen to repair and rebuild layers of dermis tissue at a deeper level. ProFractional™ treatments improve overall tone, fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores, reds, and browns. This treatment can be easily tailored to address your specific aesthetic concerns.
Am I A Good Candidate for ProFractionalTM?
Men and women who are looking to achieve younger-looking skin on the face, neck, hands, chest, or shoulders may be suitable candidates for ProFractional™ laser treatments. The ideal candidate for the procedure is an otherwise healthy adult with realistic expectations about what ProFractional™ can do for them.
How Long Does a Typical Treatment Take?*
Your actual procedure will take 30-45 minutes depending on your skin conditions as well as the area being treated. Patients should expect to be in-office for a minimum of 1 to 2 hours. Dr. Geer will apply a topical numbing cream before your treatment to ensure you’re as comfortable as possible throughout. Most patients feel no pain due to the custom numbing cream we use. It can feel like the stinging of a small rubber band.
What Results Will I See?*
While every patient is different, you will likely see initial results from your ProFractional™ laser treatment within 3-7 days. Skin will appear smoother, younger, and more vibrant. You’ll continue to see results as collagen rebuilds healthy tissue over the course of the next 6-months.
ProFractional™ is highly-customizable to your lifestyle. You can choose 1-2 deeper treatments with more downtime, or multiple lighter treatments with less recovery.
Is There Any Downtime?*
ProFractional™ is an ideal “weekend” procedure. Typically, the healing process takes anywhere from 2 to 7 days depending on the level of treatment.
Your skin may look and feel like it has a bad sunburn for about 48-hours post-procedure. During this time a broad spectrum sunscreen (30 SPF) is recommended. Mineral-based makeup can safely be applied on the third day after your ProFractional™ appointment.
