The Sciton ProFractional laser resurfacing Therapy uses a 2940 nm Erbium YAG laser delivered into a scanning device that fractionally vaporizes (ablates) micro laser channels at a predetermined depth into the skin. The ProFractional device addresses texture and tone and conditions such as fine lines, wrinkles, and various scars.
Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness and resilience to the skin.
Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though many people also treat the chest and hands. Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, however the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Profractional Therapy can be combined with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes. Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a day or two after the treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following treatment.
