Profractional Resurfacing

What is ProFractional-XC™?

ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field 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. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.

How does it work?

In ProFractional resurfacing treatments, the laser removes pinpoint columns of skin, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This approach allows the laser to penetrate very deeply into the skin for effective collagen remodeling, while the surrounding intact tissue promotes rapid healing. Therefore, giving excellent resurfacing results with minimal down time. Technicians can control the ablation and coagulation depths from light to deep treatments, therefore the recommended amount of treatments and time in between treatments will vary from patient to patient.

What to expect after the treatment?

Immediately following the procedure, treated areas will have the sensation of a sunburn. You may also have temporary pinpoint bleeding along with redness and swelling of the treated area. The healing process generally takes 5-7 days but depends on multiple factors. Customized post treatment instructions will be discussed during your consultation and after treatment has been performed
