Patients who want to improve the overall appearance of their skin may benefit from Profractional, a fast, comfortable procedure done with a specialized laser that requires less downtime than with traditional ablative skin resurfacing.
This laser energy administered from the device creates several microscopic channels throughout the skin, developing zones that help stimulate the body’s natural healing process to encourage collagen production. Collagen is known for volumizing, firming, and rejuvenating the skin, reducing fine lines, wrinkles, and other imperfections. After treatment, patients benefit from a reduced recovery period, yet still achieve profound results.
Profractional laser treatments can be used for a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Scarring from surgery or acne
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Age and sun spots
- Damaged skin from sun exposure
Profractional laser can be used on any part of the body, but is commonly administered on the face, neck, and chest.
The procedure is comfortable for most patients. Numbing cream is applied before treatment, and at times local anesthesia is administered, before the handheld device is used to emit laser energy that targets specific areas of the skin. Treatment takes approximately 30 minutes, and it can be done in a series of up to four treatments (several weeks apart) for optimum results. Immediately following treatment, patients may experience some redness similar to that of mild sunburn. Patients are more sensitive to sun exposure and should avoid it until their skin has fully healed from treatment. Sun protection, such as sunscreen, should be used at all times to protect the skin from sun damage and the unwanted signs of aging.
At DermASAP we can also combine Profractional laser treatments with other available services in his practice such as the MicroLaserPeel and SkinTyte. Photo Rejuvenation and Botox injections or other neurotoxins can be used in conjunction with this service, as well as dermal fillers for a spectacular transformation.
