ProFractional™ is one of the most advanced treatments available for improving the texture of the skin, improving fine lines, treating scarring, and encouraging deep collagen remodeling with minimal healing time. This laser ablates only a fraction of the skin in the treatment area by using a narrow diameter microbeam. In this way, it leaves the majority of the area intact. By leaving the tissue surrounding the area intact, treatment is more comfortable, and healing happens more quickly because the untreated skin helps to stimulate your own body’s healing process.
ProFractional laser is perfect for many parts of the body, not just the face! It can be used to treat fine lines, wrinkles on the face, neck, chest, décolleté, tops of hands, and any other areas that need smoothing.
The ProFractional laser is a great option to address the following:
Ideal candidates for ProFractional laser treatments are those looking to improve the appearance of their skin for a healthier, younger-looking complexion. However, it is not recommended that women who are pregnant or nursing undergo this treatment. The best way to find out if this treatment is right for you is to schedule a consultation at our Grand Rapids, MI office.
During your treatment, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the targeted area, and you will be asked to wear protective eyewear. The ProFractional laser will then be delivered, which can take anywhere from 15-30 minutes, depending on the size of the treatment area. The number of treatments required will depend on each individual and their desired results.
Following your ProFractional session, your skin may be temporarily red or swollen, and mild flaking and peeling may occur. We advise our patients to wear sunscreen when spending time outdoors, as the skin will be sensitive.
Most patients notice results after a single treatment, including smoother skin and fewer and less noticeable wrinkles, irregularities, and lines. Your collagen will continue to remodel over the next 4-6 months, which means it may take several months before you see final results.
