Sciton ProFractional resurfacing is a safe and minimally-invasive laser procedure that, aims to offer the effectiveness of deeper laser resurfacing with faster healing times and without the long term side effects of early generation lasers.
ProFractional laser resurfacing yields dramatic improvement with many skin concerns such as, but not limited to, sun damage (Photoaging), mild to moderate wrinkles, acne scars, pigment disorders, skin laxity and post-traumatic scars. Sieveking’s Platic Surgery laser specialist will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. A combination of aesthetic procedures and/or skin care products may be combined to further enhance your treatment results. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.
Sciton’s ProFractional laser resurfacing is a method in which heat zones are used to deliver tiny pinpoints of micro thermal from the laser to the treated area. With only a fraction of the skin being treated, this allows the ability to leave healthy skin in between the ablated areas, thus allowing more rapid healing with less risk of infection or scarring. Downtime associated with this treatment is approximately four days.
Although not immediate, the true benefit of Sciton’s ProFractional laser resurfacing is the collagen remodeling that occurs over the course of 12-18 months following initial laser treatment. Significant changes are seen a few months after the first treatment. For optimal results, multiple sessions are recommend approximately two to four months apart. As with any laser treatment, there is a chance of risks. Typically, the risks are rare/minimal but could include but not limited to: prolonged redness, darkening (hyper) / lightening (hypo) the skin color (pigment) in the treated area.
