About ProFractional Treatments
The ProFractional Treatment is a resurfacing procedure that produces thousands of tiny, deep columns of treated tissue in the skins layers, whilst leaving the surrounding issue untouched. These tiny micro holes trigger the skins natural healing process causing the formation of new, healthy collagen in the skin. This results in thicker, fuller and more youthful looking skin. ProFractional treatments can be used on all skin types, both face and body.

What are the benefits of ProFractional Treatments?
The top layer of skin is constantly exposed and battered by environmental elements including free radicals, wind and sun. Although the skin surface does continually renew itself, various factors hinder cellular regeneration and epidermal growth. The advantages of the ProFractional surface treatment include:
• Reduces wrinkles & lines
• Banishes acne scars
• Decrease appearance of scarring
• Treat hyper pigmentation
• Textural improvement of the skin
What to expect during your laser treatment?
Many patients undergo treatment without the use of a numbing agent however depending on your needs and wishes, a numbing treatment cream can be applied. During the treatment, a special hand piece is passed over the skins surface, delivering the little columns of laser heat to the treatment area. Patients have likened the sensatition as a prickling feeling. Dependent on the area of coverage, it can take between 15 and 45 minutes to perform the procedure. You may also want to combine your ProFractional treatment with another treatement to maximize the effect (combinations of recommended treatments are listed below). Skin Resurfacing does require some downtime and can take 3 days to 2 weeks depending on the depth of treatment. Depending on the guests needs and wants, the laser’s energy can be set to different strengths to penetrate at various depths, including superficial and medium depth skin layers, allowing us to provide individual treatment plans tailored to your needs. It is a highly specific treatment that produces the same excellent results as a more vigorous treatment would but with far less discomfort, shorter healing times and noticeable results.
What type of results can be expected
The results are noticeable immediately after the procedure and will continue to improve in the weeks following, as new collagen forms and skin appears firmer and revived. Best results will be seen 8 – 12 weeks after the treatment. To maintain these results use sun cream and moisturize regularly. Although the aging process will continue, results will be maintained for years with good skin care and some effects such as scar removal will be permanent.
