For noticeably smoother skin, we now offer the new Profractional laser treatment. This is a cutting-edge fractionated technology which can reduce acne scars, wrinkles, brown spots, and sun damage. Skin wrinkles and scars are smoothed and plumped while brown spots fade and the skin is tightened with new collagen stimulation. This exciting technology gives our dermatologists a more powerful option for treating sun damaged, aged or scarred skin.
Profractional laser treatment uses a laser micro beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin resulting in a quick healing time. Profractional is able to treat a wide variety of skin conditions such as wrinkles, skin laxity, poor texture and tone, photo damage and scars. The effect is an immediate tightening and lifting of the skin and underlying tissue. Unlike other lasers, Profractional is useful for all skin types and tones and works on your entire face including forehead, eyes, nasal folds, lip lines, chin, neck, chest and hands.
Profractional is an easy procedure: no surgery, no injections. It is a safe, clinically proven way to tighten skin with improvements in tone, contour and texture, occurring naturally through the stimulation of your own collagen. A single treatment can tighten your existing collagen and stimulates new collagen growth. Results can last for years depending on your skin condition and aging process.
The Profractional procedure is available only in the offices of qualified physicians. Our staff at USculpt Plastic Surgery are well-trained in this laser procedure and pursue ongoing training to optimize the results for our patients. Profractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin and treated areas stimulate the production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles. During the treatment, there is a brief heat sensation. Immediately following the procedure you will experience redness resembling a sunburn-like reaction. Healing takes about 2-4 days and most patients can get back to work and apply makeup within 2-3 days after the treatment. Profractional laser is typically done in a series of 3-6 treatments, spaced out 4-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs.
Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun contact until the skin is healed. Sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin should be used after treatment. Our staff will provide you the information you need to get the best results.
Clinical studies have shown smoother, firmer, tighter skin immediately after Profractional laser treatment. Skin improvement as a result of the production of new collagen and increased tightening and contouring effects continue over time. Profractional laser resurfacing is a non-surgical skin resurfacing procedure that can help you look years younger. This laser device helps to correct wrinkles, reduce melasma and hyperpigmentation, acne and surgical scars, as well as dramatically improving the texture and tone of the skin.
