ProFractional® is a powerful resurfacing technique that can dramatically improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne scarring, uneven texture, and the overall quality of your skin. Unlike other deep laser resurfacing technologies that remove the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional® creates small channels in the skin to allow for faster healing and less downtime. See amazing results in your skin’s smoothness and vitality within a few short weeks, with continued improvements for up to six months!

The Benefits of ProFractional® VS. Traditional Laser Resurfacing

Comfortable Treatment – Your provider will use a topical anesthetic before your treatment and a cool air Zimmer® during your procedure to ensure a comfortable experience from start to finish.

Minimal Downtime – Enjoy normal social activities in a few days instead of a few weeks!

Faster Healing – Experience as little as two days of sensitivity to sunlight and peeling, depending on the depth of your treatment.

How does ProFractional® work?

Unlike full field laser resurfacing, which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional® ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. As a result, collagen production is dramatically boosted, restoring volume to the dermal matrix and smoothing wrinkles and scarring.

What can ProFractional® treat?

Your Skin Artisans provider can customize the power and depth of your ProFractional® treatment to address a multitude of skin concerns on the face AND body, including:

  • Fine lines and moderate to deep wrinkles
  • Acne scarring
  • Scarring from accident or surgery
  • Enlarged pores and uneven skin texture
  • Sun damage and brown spots
  • Skin laxity and crepey skin

What does ProFractional® feel like?

ProFractional® is designed to mitigate both pain and downtime. With topical numbing cream, most patients experience only minor discomfort.

What results can I expect after a ProFractional treatment?

Your skin will be red, warm, and slightly swollen after ProFractional®. You may feel like your skin is sunburned for the first 12-24 hours. This will depend on the depth and strength of your treatment. It is essential to keep your skin consistently moisturized and hydrated for the three days following your procedure as superficial and damaged cells begin to exfoliate away. The treatment area will feel dry, tight, and possibly itchy for 3-5 days after ProFractional®, and you will need to avoid the sun and wear an SPF 30 daily for four weeks after your treatment. Makeup can be worn 24 hours after ProFractional®, and, depending on the depth of your treatment, most patients can resume normal activities 3-5 days after their appointment.

You will see your initial results with ProFractional® within 5-7 days after your treatment after redness and flaking have subsided. The collagen production stimulated during healing will continue for three months after your treatment. As a result, most patients note continued improvements for up to six months after their ProFractional® treatment!

How many ProFractional treatments will I need?

Most patients see the best results from ProFractional® after a series of two to three treatments. ProFractional® can be combined with other treatments, like MicroLaserPeel®, to enhance your overall outcome. Skin Artisans recommends maintaining your results by scheduling a bi-annual ProFractional® after you have completed your series.
