Treatment of wrinkles, scars and sundamaged skin
Dramatic results with minimal down time

What is ProFractional Therapy?
ProFractional Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is performed hereat Scottsdale Skin & Holistic Health and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and can be used in combination with other laser treatments for your desired outcome.

What conditions are treated by ProFractionalTherapy:

  • Acne Scars
  • Brown spots and uneven skin tone
  • Fine Lines / Deep wrinkles
  • Poor skin texture and aging skin
  • Enlarged pores
  • Stretch marks
  • Melasma
  • Actinic Keratosis

How does ProFractional work?
ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness and resilience to the skin.

What is the primary application of ProFractional?
Based on an assessment of your skin condition and cosmetic goals, your Technician may choose to use ProFractional whenever a combination of resurfacing with minimal downtime is desired.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though many people also treat the chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your physician.

How many treatments will I need?
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Your Technician at Scottsdale Skin & Holistic Health can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. A laser hand piece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the laser energy is applied, you will hear a rapid succession of snapping sounds. The hand piece will be moved around to adjacent locations until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.

Will it be uncomfortable?
ProFractional therapy is widely regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on the depth of treatment.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. YourTechnician will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which will include and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

How long will it take to recover?
Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a day or two after the treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.

What aftercare do I need?
Your technician will provide you with your post-treatment care instructions at the time of procedure. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.

When should I expect results?
As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs during the 4 to 6 months following your treatment.

Laser Peel | Contour TRL™ skin resurfacinglaser-logo

For unparalleled wrinkle reduction and improvements in skin tone & texture
Safe and effective deep skin resurfacing

What is a Laser Peel?
As we age, the effects of sun damage and environmental pollutants take their toll on our skin, creating wrinkles and pigment irregularities, especially on our faces. A Laser Peel can be very successful at reducing or eliminating these conditions, and in fact it is the best way to address the problematic lines that occur around the mouth and eyes. Though there are several different types of lasers used to perform peels, the Contour TRL is widely regarded as the safest, most effective laser available.

What conditions can be treated with Contour TRL?

  • Deep wrinkles(even in difficult to treat areas like around the mouth and eyes)
  • Scars
  • Solar spots
  • Actinic Keratosis
  • Poor skin tone/texture

How does a Contour TRL Laser Peel work?
Contour TRL safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by your experienced laser technician at Scottsdale Skin & Holistic Health. The depth of treatment will depend on the skin condition, your desired outcome and expectation for downtime. Because Contour TRL can affect tissue with micron precision, your Technician can treat your skin with the exact amount of energy needed – no more, no less. Treating skin with a laser stimulates the growth of new collagen, which improves the skin’s thickness and resilience. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, which will give your skin a younger rejuvenated appearance.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Several areas of the body can be treated, though the most commonly treated areas are the face and neck, and laser skin peels are often combined with other laser procedures
to further improve results. You should discuss your needs with your Technician.

How many treatments will I need?
Because Contour TRL is capable of deep laser peels, excellent results are typically achieved after one treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The Technician will position the laser handpiece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam around the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15 to 30 minutes.

Will it be uncomfortable?
The comfort level of laser resurfacing varies from patient to patient and depends largely on the depth of treatment. For shallow treatments, the procedure is often tolerated with the use of a topical anesthetic.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Swelling may also occur in the treated areas. Your Technicianwill advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics andapplication of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

How long will it take to recover?
Complete healing will depend largely on the depth of treatment. Healing times for shallow treatments are typically 3-4 days before patients resume normal activities. For deeper treatments, you should discuss realistic expectations for recovery with your Technician.

What aftercare do I need?
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.

When should I expect results?
The top layer of your skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about one week, at which time you will see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next 4 to 6 months. During this time, the skin may show increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.

Superficial Skin Resurfacing | MicroLaserPeel®laser-logo

The easy and effective way to improve skin texture and appearance
Great results with minimal downtime

What is MicroLaserPeel?
A MicroLaserPeel removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance.It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth. The procedure is performed hereat Scottsdale Skin & Holistic Health and will be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and can be used in combination with other laser treatments for your desired outcome.

What conditions can be treated with MicroLaserPeel?

  • Mild wrinkles
  • Scars
  • Keratosis (pre-cancerous lesions)
  • Sun damage (e.g., freckles)
  • Pigment irregularities

How does MicroLaserPeel work?
The MicroLaserPeel’s beam is scanned over a treatment area to remove a very thin layer of the skin. Removingthe top layer eliminates some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, freshcells grow and resurface the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles andimproved color evenness. Patients often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.

What areas of the body can be treated?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though some people also treat thechest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your Technician.

How many treatments will I need?
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, however the number of treatments needed may vary frompatient to patient. Your Technician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combineMicroLaserPeel with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. The Technicianwill position the laser hand piece above the skin and will hold it in place as the computer-guided scanner movesthe laser beam around the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usuallylasts 15 to 30 minutes.

Will it be uncomfortable?
One of the primary advantages of MicroLaserPeel is that it causes little pain because it does not penetrate very deepinto the skin. At its most shallow settings, most people can tolerate treatment with no anesthetic at all. At deepersettings, a topical numbing cream is typically used.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?
Immediately after the treatment you will notice that the skin has a “frosty” appearance. This is the dehydrated skin that will peel away within next few days following the treatment. You may experience some skin redness and a sensation resembling sunburn, as well as mild swelling.

How long will it take to recover?
Depending on the depth of treatment, most patients feel comfortable enough to return to work within 3 to 4 days

– an attribute that has given rise to the nickname “the weekend peel.”

What aftercare do I need?
Your technician will provide you with your post-treatment care instructions at the time of procedure. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.

When should I expect results?
Because only the outer layer of skin is treated, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone, textureand color evenness once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days.
