ProFractional™ Laser Resurfacing

Meet ProFractional

Incredible Results. Minimal Downtime.

ProFractional treats a portion of the skin at a time, resulting in new collagen production and a dramatic reduction in texture, fine lines, deep wrinkles, the appearance of scars, and pigmented lesions like sunspots, freckles, and actinic keratosis.

Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing.


ProFractional Treatable Areas:

ProFractional treats all skin types on the face and body.

  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Hands
  • Arms

Frequently Asked Questions:

What does ProFractional treat?

ProFractional is most commonly used to address the signs of aging, including the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, symptoms of melasma, and scars.

What skin types can be treated with ProFractional?

All skin types can benefit from the ProFractional treatment.

How many treatments are needed?

Depending on the patient’s end goal, most find they need one to three ProFractional treatments, followed by a series of annual maintenance treatments to protect and prolong their results.

What is the difference between ProFractional and other CO2 lasers?

Due to their comparatively low absorption by water, CO2 lasers have lower ablation efficiency and, therefore, unavoidably, conduct a significant amount of heat into the tissue. If coagulation is desired, sub-ablative laser energy is delivered in a train of pulses that heat the tissue to a selectable depth without vaporizing it.
