ProFractional Therapy™ is a laser skin resurfacing treatment that can help Dr. Nicholas Sieveking’s patients rejuvenate their appearance and look years younger. The latest in laser skin rejuvenation works as a single procedure, but may also be combined with other innovative and noninvasive procedures to further improve and maintain healthy, vibrant skin. Some of these procedures include MicroLaserPeel™, BBL™, and SkinTyte™.
ProFractional Therapy™ treats the deeper layers of skin, while leaving the surface layers intact. For our Nashville plastic surgery patients, this means they can achieve their aesthetic enhancement goals with increased comfort and a shorter healing time. Another benefit of the laser resurfacing procedure is the fully customizable treatment options that enable Dr. Sieveking to specifically tailor the results, whether his patients want a subtle rejuvenation or a more dramatic transformation.
The laser skin resurfacing treatment can be used to treat a number of skin conditions, including wrinkles and fine lines, acne scars, age and sun spots, and freckles. The procedure typically takes 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated and the condition of the skin. A numbing cream will be applied roughly an hour before the procedure, in which Dr. Sieveking will use the ProFractional™ laser to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin that will encourage the body’s natural healing process. Part of this process is the production of collagen, which will help plump and invigorate the patient’s skin.
The procedure is outpatient, and typically performed in a series of 1-4 treatments spaced 3-6 weeks apart. Some redness and swelling will occur following the procedure, and complete healing will take 5-12 days, but most patients are applying makeup and resuming their normal daily activities within 3 days of the procedure.
