Sciton ProFractional therapy is a fast, comfortable laser procedure that is used to improve and enhance the overall appearance of the skin. As with Halo, ProFractional enables patients to benefit from highly effective treatment with incredible results and minimal downtime. Rather than removing the entire top layer of skin in the manner of full skin resurfacing, the ProFractional laser creates narrow-diameter channels into the skin at pre-determined locations, instead of covering just a fraction of the whole treatment area. This ablative action is enough to cause micro-wounds that prompt the body’s healing response whilst still leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This boosted collagen and elastin production encourages healthier, stronger skin to form that is more youthful in appearance.
ProFractional laser treatment usually takes between fifteen and thirty minutes and can be carried out using a topical anesthetic. In most instances, healing takes place within just five days and patients can start to wear cosmetics several days following treatment. You will start to notice some improvement in the texture and tone of your skin within a week, but since the process relies on collagen and elastin production, the optimal benefit of the procedure is usually not seen until between four and six months following treatment.
