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?
Utilizing an Erbium laser scanner, the ProFractional-XC laser ablates microscopic “holes” in the skin. The result is increased turgor and thickness to the skin. Leaving
surrounding tissue intact helps promote rapid healing due to presence
of stem cells and melanocytes in the papillary dermis.
What conditions can be treated with ProFractional-XC?
Wrinkles and fine lines
Aging and sun-damaged skin
How many treatments will I need?
You will see results within just one treatment. We may recommend anywhere from 1-4 treatments depending on your skin and schedule. The depth of the resurfacing can be varied to fit your schedule and downtime.
What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
You may experience some pinpoint bleeding and 2-4 days of redness and/or peeling with this procedure depending on the depth.
When should I expect results?
Since a large portion of the skin is left intact, the healing time is faster than traditional resurfacing treatments. The treated areas also lead to the stimulation of new collagen production over time.
ProFractional works very well as a stand-alone
procedure or in combination with other treatments. Some examples of
combination therapies include:
MicroLaserPeel™ + ProFractional -
Start with Sciton’s MicroLaserPeel for full field treatment to remove
superficial irregularities followed by ProFractional to stimulate
collagen remodeling through deep fractional ablation.
BBL™ + ProFractional - Start with Sciton’s BBL for full field treatment to remove pigmented lesions followed by ProFractional.
SkinTyte™ + ProFractional - Start with SkinTyte to improve skin laxity followed by ProFractional.
