The ProFractional™ laser treatment dramatically improves the skin’s appearance, including wrinkles, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, aging, and sun-damaged skin. This technology uses the Erbium laser’s energy to make thousands of microscopic fractional channels into the skin while leaving the surrounding skin intact. The surrounding areas of untreated skin stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This results in a plumping up and smoothing out of wrinkles, lines, scars, and other imperfections, in just one treatment.
ProFractional™ has the unique ability to penetrate very deep into the skin, but with very little heat damage to surrounding tissue. This combination allows for efficacious collagen remodeling (due to the deep treatments) and a high safety margin (due to low thermal damage) on all skin types. This combination makes ProFractional™ one of the safest, yet most effective resurfacing lasers available today.
Candidates for ProFractional™ should want to reduce the appearance of skin impurities and achieve a younger, healthier complexion. Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, although many people also treat the chest and hands. Our team can adjust the laser settings appropriately for the specific area being treated.
What is ProFractional Therapy?
ProFractional Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is performed in our office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome
How Do Profractions Work?
Profractionals selectively treat tiny sections deep in the skin, while not affecting the rest of the skin’s surface. The laser targets aged and damaged skin by creating evenly-spaced, small pinpoint areas deep into the dermis. Since the laser treats a portion or “fraction” of the skin’s deepest layers, the surrounding areas are left unharmed. These vertical microscopic treatment areas, called “Micro Thermal Zones” trigger the body to create its own new natural collagen deep in the dermis. The surrounding, non-treated areas help with stimulate healing.
In other words, the laser dives deep into the dermis, and destroys these microscopic areas, while leaving the surrounding tissue, unharmed. The treated areas stimulate collagen production, while the skin tightens, and pigmentation is normalized. The skipped areas of healthy cells left behind help speed up the healing process and minimize pain.
Treatment improves skin tone, smoothes out fine lines, and evens out skin discoloration, by treating tiny sections of the skin at a time. This type of selective treatment causes collagen to regenerate deep in the dermis, while not affecting the rest of the skin’s surface. Since non-treated areas surround each treated area, healing occurs faster, decreasing downtime for patients.

How many treatments will I need?
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Our laser esthetician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
