ProFractional™ & ProFractional-XC™ Skin Rejuvenation in Scottsdale
Are you suffering from embarrassing marks on your skin? Many skin conditions result in such marks on the face, neck, chest, or hands that can be unsightly and embarrassing. Profractional skin rejuvenation, also known as Fractional or Fraxel, can eliminate common skin problems and help with skin care. At Scottsdale Skin & Holistic Health, we use this procedure to treat the following:
- Acne scars
- Brown spots and uneven skin tones
- Fine lines
- Deep wrinkles
- Poor skin texture
- Aging skin
- Enlarged pores
- Stretch marks
- Actinic Keratosis
- Solar Keratosis
Treating actinic keratosis and solar keratosis is especially important because these conditions can be precursors to skin cancer.
What to expect during a treatment session
After determining your skin condition and area of concern, we create a plan for treatment just for you. We use a system called ProFractional — a tiny laser beam that treats thousands of pinpoint areas on your skin. The treatment is referred to as “fractional” because it treats only a fraction of the skin at a time. This allows the untreated, surrounding skin tissue to promote a faster healing process.
Before starting the procedure, your technician cleans your skin and provides you with a pair of safety glasses. Gentle pressure is then applied with a hand-held laser for 15 to 30 minutes. A local anesthetic or a topical cream helps to relieve discomfort. Redness and light sensitivity after a session of ProFractional is normal.
Some patients achieve their desired results in a single session, although most require a few sessions for their problem to completely disappear. You can return to your normal life within one to two days, confident in the new appearance of your skin!
