What is ProFractional?

ProFractional is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little to no downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional uses 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 time is quick and downtime is short.

What conditions can be treated with ProFractional?

ProFractional can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is used most for:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Post-traumatic scars
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Freckles
  • Aging and sun-damaged skin
  • Most skin areas can be treated although the most popular areas are: face, neck, chest and hands.
  • Patients and physicians report:
  • Continuous improvement for months following treatment
  • Excellent long-term results
  • Fast healing
  • Softer, smoother, healthier skin
  • Progressive skin tightening
  • Minimal downtime

How does the ProFractional laser work?

ProFractional™ 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 our wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities

Who should consider a ProFractional treatment?

If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for ProFractional. The Medical Aestheticians at Afterglow can advise you if you're a good candidate.

What areas can be treated?

Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.

What is a ProFractional procedure like?

ProFractional is a fast, comfortable procedure done in your physician's office. The procedure normally takes 15-30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated. A numbing cream may be applied in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure.

How many ProFractional treatments will I need?

ProFractional is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. We will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire and may recommend that you combine ProFractional with a MicroLaserPeel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.

What should I expect after treatment?

Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only about 1-3 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 1-2 days after the treatment.

What special after-treatment care will I need?

It is important to follow your physician's instructions which may include some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
