ProFractional™ Laser Treatment Overview
A unique skin resurfacing treatment, ProFractional improve stubborn stretch marks, surgical scars, fine lines, and deep wrinkles. While traditional resurfacing treatments remove layers of skin, ProFractional creates narrow channels in the skin. This minimal damage allows for faster healing while still prompting the skin to increase collagen production, which improves the strength and elasticity of the skin. Compared to traditional skin resurfacing treatments, ProFractional is more comfortable for patients and requires a shorter healing time, but still gives amazing results.

ProFractional™ Laser Treatment Procedure Process
To begin, a skin care professional will assess the patient's skin health and listen to their specific concerns. This will help them create a custom ProFractional treatment plan for the desired area(s). The patient's skin will be cleaned and prepped before the handpiece is passed over the skin. During the procedure, patients can expect mild to moderate discomfort, but this should fade quickly once the treatment is finished. Once the process is complete, skin care products may be applied to soothe and nourish the patient's skin.
What to Expect with ProFractional™ Laser Treatment
After the ProFractional treatment, the skin will look and feel like a sunburn immediately after the procedure up to 3 – 4 days. Although topical numbing is most common to apply for patient comfort, anesthesia may be utilized. Patients will experience redness and swelling but can continue with everyday activities about two days after their procedure. Some results may be visible immediately, but most patients will need to wait several weeks. As the skin heals, the treated areas will feel smoother and stronger.
ProFractional™ Laser Treatment Expected Cost
Depending on the size of the area being treated, the cost for a ProFractional treatment can cost between $200 – $400 on average for one treatment. Multiple treatments are recommended for desired results.
