Profractional laser treatment is an anti-aging skin cosmetic treatment. Our biological clock can never be stopped or reversed, but the appearance of our aging certainly can be.
Profractional Skin Resurfacing typically leads to skin tightening, improved skin texture and tone, and fewer wrinkles, with the results lasting upwards of one to two years.
Let’s learn more about the benefits in a bit more detail. But before that, let us understand how the procedure actually works.
How Does Profractional Skin Resurfacing Work?
Unlike traditional procedures such as ablative techniques or plastic surgery MN, Profractional resurfacing works on specific areas deep-rooted into the skin, incorporating an extremely narrow light column.
Conventional methods like CO2 lasers tend to take the entire outer skin layer off at once. In other words, they treat the entire skin surface. This also means the surrounding untouched spots stimulate the healing process and help quicken recovery.
The laser procedure treats acne scars and enlarged pores, enhances skin tone, addresses skin discolorations, and smoothens fine lines. It does all of this by targeting the tiny skin sections.
This selective treatment approach induces collagen to reactivate deep within the dermis, ensuring the remaining areas of the skin are not affected.
Also, all exposed areas of the skin can be treated such as the neck and face, including the hands and sun-damaged chest. The number of sessions could vary between patients, their skin conditions, and specific requirements.
But most people should see noticeable results after the first session itself. The treatment can be customized too and combined with other treatments for even better results.
Profractional Skin Resurfacing doesn’t entail injections or cuts. This non-invasive procedure employs heat energy for stimulating collagen under the skin.
For several patients, the process’ safety level is the most significant selling point. Scalpels and needles, and more invasive treatments can scare some patients. For these patients, laser treatment is an excellent alternative. As there are no needles involved, the recovery time is short.
Generally, people receiving the treatment can return to their routine or work just a day or two after the laser therapy. Facial implants and dermal fillers, on the other hand, entail longer recovery times.
Doesn’t Cause Skin Lightening
With traditional skin treatments, most people may notice the treated skin part being noticeably lighter than the untreated body parts.
Such a lightening effect make it evident that the person has undergone treatment. Not to mention, this boundary between the treated and untreated skin looks gaudy.
With Profractional Skin Resurfacing, no such effects are noticeable, and people may know nothing about the procedure until you tell them about it.
