ProFractional™ laser treatment resurfaces the skin to reduce wrinkles and pigmentation as well as improve skin tone and texture. It also treats scars, wrinkles, fine lines, and sun damage, such as skin discoloration. The ProFractional™ laser removes the skin’s top layer by penetrating deeply into the dermis.
This triggers the body’s natural wound-healing response, stimulating new collagen and elastin production, resulting in smoother and softer skin. The skin produces new collagen for up to six months, even after the skin has healed.

When performed by an experienced practitioner, fractionated ablative laser skin resurfacing treatments are highly effective. They are suitable for wrinkled skin, fine lines or “crinkles,” skin with poor texture, and certain scars from burns and acne.
Treatments can be performed on any skin type or body area in a few days. With only two ProFractional™ laser treatments, you can achieve nearly the same results as with a whole surface ablative laser resurfacing but with significantly less pain, downtime, and risk.
ProFractional™s treat small areas deep in the skin without affecting the skin’s surface. The laser uses small and evenly spaced pinpricks to penetrate the dermis and targets old or damaged skin.
Since the laser only affects a small part, or “fraction,” of the deepest layers of skin, the rest of the skin is unhurt. These tiny treatment areas, called “microthermal zones,” are deep in the dermis. They encourage the body to make its natural collagen. The areas around the wound that haven’t been treated help it heal.
Treating tiny skin sections at a time enhances skin tone, diminishes fine lines, and evens skin discoloration. The following are answers to other frequently asked questions about ProFractional™ laser treatment.
ProFractional™ laser resurfacing is a good option for both men and women who want to get rid of their skin’s imperfections on a particular part of their body, usually the face and neck, without surgery. It is also a great way to treat people with acne scars on their cheeks, temples, or jawline that look like rolling, ice pick, or pockmarks.
The patient should be in good health and from any skin problems. The ProFractional™ laser works well on all skin types and tones and can treat various skin conditions, from the surface to the dermis.
Oral analgesics administered at the time of topical numbing in the office are highly effective at reducing pain. However, most individuals describe a sensation of rapid, hot pinpricks to the skin. When the treatment is complete, the skin feels warm and resembles a severe sunburn. In some cases, normal, healthy, and pinpoint bleeding occurs.
Some individuals claim their skin appears tighter and more youthful within a week. Most individuals notice the result of new collagen synthesis, especially the reduction of wrinkles in a month.
It may take up to three months to observe improvement in pitted acne scarring. ProFractional™ induces a permanent reshaping of the skin and should be repeated as necessary for continued improvement.
The results of ProFractional™ laser treatments are remarkable and durable. At Luminescence Aesthetic Medicine, we offer personalized skin treatment plans that assist you in optimizing your lifestyle for healthier and younger looking skin.
