Face,Injections,Concept.,Pretty,Blonde,Middle,Aged,Woman,Wrapped,In Our body possesses the amazing ability to heal itself, which can be used to promote new, healthier-looking skin. ProFractional laser treatment is an advanced, minimally invasive treatment that takes advantage of your body’s natural healing process to minimize and address various skin concerns, from scarring to sun damage. Plus, it requires minimal downtime and recovery.

If you’re interested in ProFractional laser treatment from Renaissance Plastic Surgery, here’s what you can expect.

What To Expect During ProFractional Laser Treatment

Preparing for Treatment

Before your ProFractional laser treatment, we provide specific instructions to help you prepare, such as:

  • Avoiding the sun and indoor tanning
  • Discontinuing medications or supplements that may slow healing
  • Discontinuing the use of skin products containing retinoids or glycolic acid
  • Quitting smoking

All other preparations will occur in our office. On the day of your treatment, we use topical numbing cream to make your experience as comfortable as possible. The cream takes around 20 to 30 minutes to take full effect. Then, you place goggles over your eyes, and you’re ready for treatment.

The Treatment Process

The ProFractional laser works on tiny sections of skin, creating microscopic channels into the dermis, the middle layer of the skin. This stimulates collagen production to smooth skin and restore volume.

It’s normal to feel some mild discomfort and a sensation of deep heat. The treatment only takes about 15 minutes.

After Treatment

Pinpoint bleeding and facial swelling are normal following treatment and should subside quickly. We provide detailed aftercare instructions, which begin with gently washing your face with cool water at home and applying the recommended ointment.

ProFractional laser treatment generally requires around three days of downtime. If you have a combination procedure, with the MicroLaserPeel® alongside ProFractional — a common approach if you have both sun damage and wrinkles or scars — recovery may take a week or two.

After three treatments (spaced about a month apart), most patients notice a significant improvement in lines, wrinkles, and acne scars. ProFractional has a very high patient satisfaction rating because it can make skin look and feel better at the same time.
