Benefits of ProFractional Therapy

Just about all areas, including the face, neck, chest, and hands, can be effectively treated with fractional resurfacing in our Albany practice. ProFractional treatments can greatly improve many different skin conditions, including:

  • Rough or sagging skin
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scars from surgery, injury, acne, and chicken pox
  • Age spots, sun spots, freckles, and uneven pigmentation

In addition to being effective as a standalone procedure, ProFractional is an ideal compliment to BBL™ Photo Rejuvenation Therapy or MicroLaserPeel® for a more comprehensive improvement.

How it Works

ProFractional utilizes an erbium:YAG laser that is safe for all skin types, both on the face and body. The laser creates thousands of pinpoint channels in the skin at a depth that your surgeon adjusts to your unique needs and improvement goals. The tiny treated channels alternate with untreated channels, so healing time is rapid and there is little or to downtime. The treated areas of the skin invigorate the body's natural healing process and begin to produce new collagen, which plumps the skin and helps to smooth wrinkles, lines, scars, and other skin imperfections.

The Procedure

ProFractional treatments are performed right in our office and normally take between just 15 and 30 minutes to complete. A soothing, anesthetic cream may be applied before the treatment for enhanced comfort.

In most cases, 1 to 4 ProFractional treatments are performed over a period of 3 to 6 weeks for maximum results. Your plastic surgeon will determine a treatment schedule that meets your individual needs and goals.

Recovering

After your ProFractional treatment, you will most likely experience some reddening of the skin in the treatment areas that is much like a light sunburn. People usually return to work in a couple of days depending on the depth. Makeup can usually be applied within a day or so after treatment.

It is important to avoid ultraviolet light until you have completely healed because your skin will be more sensitive. So, stay out of the direct sunlight and always use an effective sunscreen. We offer superb medical-grade skin care products that you can purchase in our office or online.
