About ProFractional Laser

This most advanced form of laser skin resurfacing drills tiny precise columns into the skin surface, leaving surrounding skin intact. This surrounding normal skin then rapidly heals, producing new collagen. Traditional lasers do not leave normal surrounding skin, leading to more post-treatment pain and to a longer recovery time.

The healthy tissue between treatment zones contains cells that promote rapid renewal of the outer skin layer. The treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.

A local anaesthetic similar to what you receive at the dentist is used during treatment. A prescription for this anaesthetic will be given to you at your free consultation. The local anaethetic is applied to your skin for sixty minutes immediately prior to your laser treatment. As your skin will take three to four days to recover, we recommend scheduling your laser treatments to account for this downtime.
