What is ProFractional™?
The ProFractional™ laser is used to treat:
How does it work?
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.
The ProFractional™ XC Laser differs by giving you additional options to further individualize your ProFractional™ treatment. With the XC Laser, the treatment is done at a significantly higher speed and has user-controlled, variable-depth thermal heating. This particular treatment is best suited for those wishing to tighten the skin, as well as improve the overall appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. With ProFractional™ XC Laser, we can precisely control thermal injury and post treatment inflammation. Specific needs should be discussed with your physician to determine if ProFractional™ XC Laser is right for you.

What to Expect
The treatment involves precise removal of small columns of skin at the depth determined by your physician. Pinpoint bleeding may occur. Patients often describe a slight stinging sensation, like the snapping of a rubber band, in the treated areas. Most individuals find this to be very tolerable. Total time spent in the office will vary depending on the area treated and patient response.
What will I look like immediately after ProFractional™ treatment?
How do I care for my skin after the treatment?
Within weeks, your treated skin will feel smoother, fine wrinkles and pores will be less noticeable, and sun spots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Your physician will provide you with complete information about the post treatment care and results.
You will be sensitive to ultra-violet light and you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. Sun tanning and tanning beds should be avoided for 1 month before and after each BBL session. A broad spectrum sunblock with zinc oxide and/ or titanium dioxide as the primary ingredients should be used on a daily basis.
