The Sciton ProFractional™ laser is a quick and comfortable laser procedure used to improve the overall appearance of your skin using a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing of the skin is in a matter of days rather than weeks.
The ProFractional™ laser is used to treat:
- Wrinkles and lines
- Post-traumatic scars
- Acne scars
- Tightening of the skin
- Aging and sun-damaged skin
How does it work?
The ProFractional™ laser 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.
By delivering energy deep into the dermal tissue, fractional resurfacing selectively injures collagen molecules, causing wound-healing response and stimulating fibroblast activity. Fibroblasts turn on new collagen production, rejuvenating the collagen matrix and plumping the skin from the inside out
