How it works:
Our profractional treatment is designed to stimulate collagen by using a laser to create tiny pinpoint channels leading to the dermis. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. A profractional is safe and will give you immediate resurfacing results with little downtime.
What to expect:
The treatment lasts about 45 minutes and begins by using a topical numbing agent. When starting the treatment it will be warming to the skin, like a sunburn, with little discomfort. Immediately after it will be cooled with cold compresses. The skin will be warm and red after the treatment, but should subside within 24-48 hours depending on the depth of the treatment. The complete healing of the skin will take longer, but most people won’t be able to tell. You will be the only one to know that you had a profractional because you can feel the tiny holes as they heal, which lasts about 5-6 days. Check out this blog for one woman’s experience with the treatment.
What does it treat:
The Sciton Profractional will minimize and treat acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, discolorations, and poor skin texture. The benefits will include a smoother tone and texture seen immediately, but the results will continue for the next 6 months. Profractionals can also be combined with BBL for maximized results.
What areas can be treated:
Face, hands, neck, decollete, and almost anywhere on the body.
How many treatments are needed:
Usually, only one treatment is needed; but depending on each client’s skin more may be needed.
