ProFractional Laser Peel is a quick and relatively comfortable laser procedure with little to no downtime used to improve the overall appearance of your skin. The conditions most commonly treated include:
- Wrinkles and fine lines,
- Post-traumatic scars
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Sun spots
Most body areas and skin types can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands. Most commonly, topical anesthesia is used.
How Does ProFractional Work?
An advanced microbeam technology is used which creates thousands of microscopic channels in the skin that are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities. Since only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.
After the treatment you may experience a mild redness, resembling a sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes about 3 to 5 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 1-2 days after treatment. It is important to stay out of the sun afterward as your skin will be more sensitive to ultra violet light.
