What to Expect from ProFractional Laser Treatment™

Much like the foundation of a home or building, beautiful skin starts from the deepest layers. If you’re looking to target your skin with a heavy-hitting treatment that penetrates the deepest levels, ProFractional Laser Treatments™ may be right for you and your skincare goals. At Renew Medical Spa, we offer fully customizable treatments that are driven by results. Is this rejuvenation experience right for you? Read on for the details:

What is ProFractional Laser Treatment™?

Wouldn’t it be amazing to have the surface of your skin transformed? With this unique treatment developed by Sciton, ProFractional Laser Treatment™ makes this possible. While other treatments do resurface the skin, some also remove the vulnerable surface area of the entire treatment area. Instead, ProFractional Laser Treatment™ targets the laser energy into the specific parts of the skin and creates a more narrow treatment area. This strategy means that the treatment areas are evenly spaced and deep within the dermis, leaving the surrounding tissue intact. These small treatment areas stimulate the body to create new natural collagen and tighten the skin. In addition, treating a smaller, more specific area leaves more healthy cells behind and can help enhance the healing process and minimize any pain.

What is it like to have ProFractional Laser Treatment™?

One of the most significant benefits of choosing ProFractional laser is how attuned it is to the individual patient. This means that it’s capable of rejuvenation on the deepest level within the dermis, and also qualified to tackle much lighter treatments on the surface of the skin. No matter which level you are receiving (your skincare provider will help guide you through the process and select the appropriate treatment level), you want to have this procedure done by experienced professionals. Without appropriate topical anesthetic, this procedure can be painful and pose a higher risk to the patient. At Renew Medical Spa, we are committed to the comfort of our patients, and thoroughly assess each patient and their medical history and needs before scheduling them for ProFractional Laser Treatment™.

During the procedure, you can expect your skin to be cleaned and your eyes covered with protective shields. A topical anesthetic will be placed on the skin to provide you with optimal comfort. Then, your provider will place the laser instrument on your skin and you will hear a rapid set of popping sounds. Some patients report that it feels prickly or an itching sensation as the procedure is happening, but there is minimal discomfort. The provider will move the instrument over the various locations until the treatment area has been covered. This can take between 15 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the area being treated.

What happens after my treatment?

Right after your treatment, you may find that your skin is red or tender, and may appear abraded. There may be tenderness and light bleeding within the first 24 hours, which is to be expected depending on the depth of your specific treatment. At Renew, we advise you to schedule 1-7 days of social downtime to recover from the procedure. This number will fluctuate based on the size of your treatment area, but avoiding sun exposure will be critical for any treatment size. We recommend avoiding sun exposure for 2-3 weeks before and after the treatment and always using a high-quality SPF while recovering.

What are the results of ProFractional Laser Treatment™?

Although the after-effects like redness may look dramatic as you first leave your procedure, they are worth the wait. ProFractional Laser Treatment™ is different than other laser treatments because of the rapid recovery and how quickly patients see improvement. It focuses on the overall quality of the skin and achieves more even and dramatic results. It is effective for:

  • Wrinkles
  • Skin texture
  • Acne scarring
  • Skin laxity
  • Sun damage
  • Hyperpigmentation

The resulting skin tone or texture will be visible in just one week after your first treatment, but your provider will guide you through how many treatments you will need for optimal results. Richer, firmer skin is not just a dream; ProFractional Laser Treatment™ can be a practical and effective solution for any skincare challenges you may be experiencing.
