ProFractional Laser Treatment:
A Comprehensive Overview

In our quest for flawless and youthful skin, we are often presented with a variety of options ranging from creams and serums to invasive and non-invasive surgical procedures. Amidst this extensive range, one innovative technique has emerged as a true game-changer in the field of skin rejuvenation –

ProFractional® laser treatment.

What is ProFractional laser treatment?

ProFractional laser treatment is a revolutionary procedure by Sciton provider that utilizes laser technology to stimulate collagen production, improve skin texture, and minimize various skin imperfections, such as scarring. It works by creating thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the skin, leaving surrounding areas unaffected. This precise targeting promotes rapid healing and collagen remodeling, leading to a more rejuvenated and refreshed appearance.

How does ProFractional laser work?

ProFractional laser treatment involves delivering laser energy through a handheld device, creating microthermal zones within the skin. This stimulates the generation of collagen and fosters the healing process, leading to enhanced skin texture, decreased wrinkles, minimized scars, and a more uniform skin tone.

Does ProFractional laser treatment work on acne scars?

A lot of clients at Clinique Le 1620 have seen remarkable results when used as an acne scar removal laser. It offers a non-invasive or minimally invasive option compared to more aggressive surgical procedures. 

Here’s how it works:

  • Scar assessment: Before the treatment, our aesthetic nurse will assess the type, depth, and characteristics of the scar. The evaluation helps to determine the appropriate settings for the laser skin treatment.
  • Laser energy delivery: During the procedure, the fractional laser device emits microbeams of the laser energy into the scarred tissue. These microbeams create tiny, controlled channels in the skin, targeting the scarred areas while leaving the surrounding healthy skin intact.
  • Collagen stimulation: The laser energy penetrates the scar tissue, heating it, and promotes collagen production. By doing this, the laser treatment triggers the skin’s natural healing response and encourages the remodeling of the scar tissue.
  • Scar improvement: Over time, as the treated area heals and you’ll notice an improvement to the texture, appearance, and flexibility of the scar. The scar may become less raised, smoother, and blend in better with the surrounding skin. The depth and visibility of the scar can be significantly reduced, resulting in a better appearance.
  • Multiple sessions: The number of ProFractional laser treatment sessions required for scar improvement varies depending on the severity and type of scar. Typically, a series of treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart is recommended to achieve the desired results.

Does ProFractional laser hurt?

ProFractional laser treatment typically involves some level of discomfort during the procedure, however measures are taken to minimize the pain experienced by the patient. 

Prior to the procedure a topical numbing cream or local anesthesia may be applied to the treatment area to help reduce any potential pain or unease. Each person’s pain tolerance and sensitivity to the laser treatment can differ and some individuals find the procedure more uncomfortable than others.

How long does ProFractional laser treatment last?

The longevity of the ProFractional laser treatment can range from several months to a few years, depending on a number of factors, and the long-term effects can vary from individual to individual. While the treatment itself facilitates the generation of collagen and leaves clients with smoother skin, the longevity of the results depends on a number of factors, including skin condition and age, lifestyle and skincare routine, and future aging and environmental factors. 

It’s important to note that the ProFractional laser treatment does not halt the aging process but it can help to reverse or reduce signs of aging, leaving you with more radiant skin and minimizing various skin concerns. 

What to expect after the ProFractional laser treatment?

Following the treatment, it is common to experience some post-treatment sensitivity, such as redness, swelling, and a mild sunburn-like sensation. The effects are temporary and generally subside within a few days as the skin heals. 

How much does ProFractional laser cost?

The cost of the ProFractional laser treatment is typically provided on a per-session basis. At Clinique Le 1620, we charge anywhere between $150 to $500 per session. The treatment plan will be determined in consultation with our nurse and precise pricing will be provided at that time. 

Several sessions are usually necessary, we recommend anywhere from three to five treatments, sometimes more for intense scars.
