Fine lines and wrinkles can be difficult to smooth out using an abrasive resurfacing technique. Natural healing and tissue growth stimulation is more easily achieved via laser resurfacing. This procedure uses a laser to heat up the deep dermal layers. Fractional lasers, such as the Sciton® ProFractional laser, can be custom-calibrated to allow laser energy to pass through the epidermis and target the layers beneath while leaving the surrounding skin intact. This stimulates increased collagen production. If you are seeking a way to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, scarring or an uneven skin tone, consider treatment with the Sciton® ProFractional laser.
Who is a Good Candidate?
Good candidates for this treatment are in good overall health with realistic expectations regarding treatment results. They also have a skin condition that the laser can effectively treat, such as fine lines, wrinkles and scars.
If the entire face is covered with wrinkles and deep folds, a more aggressive approach may be necessary. However, wrinkles and fine lines that occur in small regions of the face can usually be effectively treated using the Sciton® ProFractional laser.
How Does ProFractional Work?
ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen, which adds firmness and resilience to the skin.
The treatment involves only minimal downtime. Clients can expect 3 to 5 days to completely heal after a superficial ProFractional treatment. With deeper ProFractional services, swelling can last for 3 to 4 days with complete healing in about 5 to 7 days.
