The ProFractional Laser
Do you suffer from any of the following skin conditions?
- Acne scars
- Surgical scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Melasma (mask of pregnancy)
- Sunspots/sun damage
- Crepey skin on face/neck
- Poor tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
If so, you may be interested in treatment with our new ProFractional laser—the newest technology for skin resurfacing. Skin resurfacing with the ProFractional laser benefits all skin types and provides long-lasting results. ProFractional uses a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Since only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.
How does the ProFractional laser benefit your skin? By deliberately inducing micro-channels of controlled damage, the laser “tells” the skin to repair itself by building new collagen. This new collagen smoothes out wrinkles, tautens crepiness and fills in the pits and scars associated with acne. The treatment also breaks down the pigmentation that gives rise to melasma, sunspots and freckles.
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 treatment.
How many ProFractional treatments will you need?
ProFractional is a fast, comfortable procedure that 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. ProFractional is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Afterglow will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement desired and may recommend that you combine ProFractional with a MicroLaser Peel or other effective aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
