1. What is ProFractional Laser Therapy?

ProFractional laser therapy can be used on multiple areas of the body – including the face, neck, hands, and chest – to rejuvenate the surface of the skin.  Created by Sciton, it uses a precise laser beam to create hundreds of minute “cracks” in your skin. This is done in carefully predetermined “fractions” of your skin: areas of tissue specifically chosen for treatment without damaging surrounding tissue. 

The lasers essentially damage the skin in the treatment are initiating the body’s healing process and the development of new skin. This stimulates collagen production and produces a smooth, youthful new layer of skin.

At Aesthetica, we offer ProFractional lasers as a part of our deep laser skin resurfacing treatment. This treatment combines a Micro Laser Peel and Profractional Lasers for the ultimate skin resurfacing treatment.

2. What Do ProFractional Laser Treatments Cost?

As is the case for almost any cosmetic surgery or enhancement process, the exact Profractional Laser cost is difficult to estimate, as it depends on a host of factors. How large and where are the targeted areas for treatment? How many sessions will be required? And your surgeon or nurse will need to take other factors into account as well.  The best route to discerning an accurate total cost is to book an initial consultation at a trusted plastic surgeon’s office near you. Their staff will be able to create a treatment plan tailored to bring you to the final skin results of your dreams.

3. Why Choose ProFractional Laser Therapy?

ProFractional laser treatments are one of the most effective laser treatments, with long-lasting results that actually make a difference in the aesthetic appearance of your skin, particularly the texture. Additionally, because ProFractional laser therapy is based on the principle of targeting a fraction of the skin, rather than the entire area, recovery time is reduced, and results appear far more rapidly than many other laser therapies. Reviewers rave about the difference in their skin before and after their ProFractional laser sessions.  

4. What is ProFractional Laser Treatment Recovery Like?

Recovery from a ProFractional laser therapy session is remarkably smooth and straightforward (just like your new skin will be!). There may be a slight redness and discomfort, similar to the experience of a mild sunburn. A total recovery is to be expected within the first three to five days, and most clients are able to return to their regular routines after the first day or two. Your doctor will recommend that you keep sun exposure to a minimum for the next few weeks, and to be on the lookout for results to only get better as time goes on and your body continues to create collagen.

5. What Do ProFractional Lasers Treat?

ProFractional Laser is a resurfacing therapy that addresses the issues of wrinkles and minor creases, fine lines, and sun-damaged skin. ProFractional lasers can remove acne scars and other spots of discoloration due to age or broken blood vessels as well. Almost every area of the body including the face, hands, neck, and chest are able to be treated with Profractional lasers.
