ProFractional Laser Therapy
ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent skin texture resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response which stimulates fibroblasts to produce new collagen and elastin, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
Best for: skin laxity, acne scarring, and wrinkling concerns.
ProFractional therapies are typically performed on a Thursday, so that the patient may recover over the weekend and return to work on a Monday or Tuesday. Results are amazing! Skin tone and texture are significantly and visibly improved. Truly dramatic improvements may be achieved in a series of treatments.
ProFractional is recommended in combination with almost any facial surgery – from Botox and fillers to a full face lift.
Because the treatment is ablative (removes skin), Dr. Poulos prescribes an antibiotic as a preventative measure.
What makes the ProFractional treatment different from other medical spas is the expertise of the medical aesthetician providing the service. Each year, our aestheticians receive three full days’ of advanced laser training from the premiere aesthetic laser expert in the nation. Their review includes an overview of laser physics, Fitzpatrick skin typing, and tissue interaction. As always, Dr. Poulos is on-site and available to assess any patient’s specific concerns or candidacy for treatment.
