ProFractional Laser

Whether a supermodel or supermom, we all desire to hang on to our tight, healthy and young looking skin. However, as genetics and environmental exposure would have it, collagen rich stores within our skin diminish as early as the age of thirty. A new advancement in laser technology, known as ProFractional laser, replenishes your own natural collagen with as little as one treatment.

What is a ProFractional Laser?

Just as we aerate our lawns to grow thick, healthy grass, a ProFractional Laser (manufactured by Sciton, a leader in laser technology) uses a similar concept to “aerate” or thicken your tissue and stimulate natural collagen growth. Other similar technology is the Fraxel treatment.  The Sciton laser produces microspherical channels that stimulate the production of new collagen. After a ProFractional treatment, you will immediately begin to experience tighter and rejuvenated skin.

“I highly recommend Parva Plastic Surgery for surgery or skin care. Any time I visit their office it is a pleasure. Their entire staff has the best customer service of any office I have ever been in.

How does ProFractional Laser work?

Through placement of small microspherical holes within your tissue, ProFractional laser triggers your body’s natural healing process to develop rich, new collagen stores. At Parva Plastic Surgery, ProFractional Laser is performed with a safe and highly effective, erbium laser known as Sciton.

What should I expect during a ProFractional Laser Treatment?

Before your ProFractional Laser treatment, a topical numbing agent is applied to the treatment area for 30 minutes to provide comfort. As the treatment takes place, you will feel heat in the areas being treated, followed by a sunburn sensation. Immediately after your treatment, cool compresses and soothing ointment are applied to the face for additional comfort. ProFractional Laser treatments last 20 minutes and are commonly combined with Broad Band Light and Laser Micropeel.

What should I expect after a ProFractional Laser Treatment?

ProFractional Laser has big results, but little down time. On average, sunblock and make-up may be applied as early as three to four days after your treatment. Skin tightening results are immediate but continue to improve up to six months after your treatment. Parva Plastic Surgery is pleased to provide the newest ProFractional module from Sciton Laser, which increases your overall treatment efficacy and outcome.
