Skin Resurfacing (ProFractional)

Woman-receiving-ProFractional-Laser-therapy

Plaza Aesthetics offers skin resurfacing treatment using the ProFractional laser. Unlike full field resurfacing, which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, the ProFractional laser ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s natural wound healing process, leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The result is increased firmness and resilience in the skin.

The Role of Collagen

Collagen is an essential component of youthful and luminous skin. With age, less and less collagen is produced in the dermis, causing the skin to lose its natural elasticity. In addition, years of sun damage can compound aging issues, causing someone to look older than they really are. Wrinkles, age spots, and loose skin can also have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem.

Benefits of Treatment

Skin resurfacing treatment with the ProFractional laser can treat:

  • Skin laxity
  • Large pores
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Scarring from acne or surgery
  • Uneven or discolored pigmentation
  • Other common skin concerns

ProFractional laser treatment requires minimal downtime. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and adjustable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.

How It Works

The ProFractional Laser creates clean, micro-ablated channels in the skin, activating fibroblast production. The result is increased thickness in the skin. The surrounding tissue is left intact, helping promote rapid healing.

The skin care professional will apply a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the extent of treatment, and use a laser handpiece to deliver laser energy to the treatment area(s). The entire procedure typically takes between 15 and 30 minutes.

The ProFractional laser may be used to treat the face, neck, chest, and hands.
