Frequently Asked Questions & Answers
What is ProFractional?
ProFractional is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little to no downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional uses a laser micro beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.
What conditions can be treated with ProFractional?
ProFractional can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is used most for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Post-traumatic scars
- Acne scars
- Age spots
- Sun spots
- Aging and sun-damages skin
How does the ProFractional work?
ProFractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body's natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.
Who should consider a ProFractional treatment?
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for ProFractional.
What areas can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
What is a ProFractional procedure like?
ProFractional is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our office. The procedure normally takes 15-30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated.
How many ProFractional treatments will I need?
ProFractional is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Our Registered Nurses will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Your may also combine ProFractional with a Micro Laser Peel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only 1-3 days and most patients can get back to work and apply make-up within 1-2 days after the treatment.
What special after-treatment care will I need?
It is important to follow post treatment instructions which may include some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
If you find you are not looking as young as you feel, there are many skin care procedure options that can help you regain your youthful hue. Schedule a ProFractional consultation today at Broadway Plastic Surgery.
