ProFractional Laser: Understanding The Procedure

WHAT IS A PROFRACTIONAL LASER?

Our Profractional laser treatment is a non-surgical treatment that achieves distinguished results in resurfacing the skin. This treatment goes further into skin stimulating collagen production that sends your skin into a corrective and healing state. We LOVE this procedure because it helps fix deeper issues like unwanted texture, wrinkles and acne scarring.

WHAT HAPPENS: 

Your skin will be thoroughly cleaned in the treatment area, then a topical anesthetic numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area for approximately thirty minutes before treatment begins.. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields A laser handpiece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the laser energy is applied, you will hear a rapid succession of snapping sounds. The handpiece will be moved around to adjacent locations until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.

AFTER:

Immediately following the procedure you may experience redness, pin-point bleeding and a sensation resembling a deep sunburn. Healing typically occurs within a few days (3-7) and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a few days after the treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.We definitely recommend using sunscreen with SPF 45+ to help protect your beautiful skin!
