Although laser treatments for the face and neck have become increasingly popular over the years, they do require a certain period of downtime for every patient. PROFractional Resurfacing was introduced as an alternative to full face resurfacing treatments. PROFractional Resurfacing involves the use of fractional laser treatment to treat a number of different skin conditions, including age spots, wrinkles, acne scarring, and fine lines. The major benefit of PROFractional Resurfacing is its ability to affect only the intended treatment area, not the surrounding tissue. With other laser resurfacing treatments, the entire face is treated at once. This key difference makes PROFractional Resurfacing an especially attractive option for patients, as healing times are much faster.
Key benefits of receiving PROFractional Resurfacing include:
- Faster recovery/healing
- Decreased downtime
- Faster treatment time
- Decrease in pain during/after treatment
- Increased accuracy
PROFractional Resurfacing is a minimally invasive procedure. Topical anesthetic is used to decrease and mild discomfort felt during treatment. The procedure takes anywhere from 30 minutes to one and half hours. Immediately following treatment, you will notice a visible improvement in the skin’s texture and fine lines will appear less evident.
