This form of lasertreatment is an in-office specialty of NewTrend, where the Dr. develops a custom treatment plan to address your specific skin conditions. Unlike full field resurfacing, which affects 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 leaves the surrounding tissue intact, resulting in the increased production of new collagen that promotes faster healing and adds firmness to your skin. Most ProFractional laser therapy sessions take 15 to 30 minutes followed by a minimal recovery process of a few days, and Dr. Mehta will instruct you on aftercare procedures following your treatment.
What is Profractional?
Just as we aerate our lawns to grow thick, healthy grass, a ProFractional Laser (manufactured by Sciton, a leader in laser technology) uses a similar concept to “aerate” or thicken your tissue and stimulate natural collagen growth. Other similar technology is the Fraxel treatment. The Sciton laser produces microspherical channels that stimulate the production of new collagen. After a ProFractional treatment, you will immediately begin to experience tighter and rejuvenated skin.
What should I expect during a Profractional Treatment?
Before your ProFractional Laser treatment, a topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area for 30-45 minutes to provide comfort. As the treatment takes place, you will feel heat in the areas being treated, followed by a sunburn sensation. Immediately after your treatment, cool compresses and soothing ointment are applied to the face for additional comfort. ProFractional Laser treatments last roughly 30 minutes.
What does Profractional Treat?
• Lines and wrinkles
• Loose Skin
• Scars including Acne Scars
• Depleted collagen
What should I expect after a Profractional Treatment?
ProFractional Laser has big results, but little down time. On average, sunblock and make-up may be applied as early as three days after your treatment. Skin tightening results are immediate but continue to improve up to six months after your treatment.
