What is Profractional Laser Treament?
Aged and damaged skin affects many men and women, and here at Boulder Plastic Surgery we are pleased to offer safe and effective ways to combat unpleasant signs of aging. Profractional laser treatment can smooth out fine lines, improve skin tone, and help correct skin discoloration and age spots. This is a non-invasive procedure that can be performed quickly in our office, and downtime and recovery time are minimal.
How Does the Profractional Laser Work?
Profractional laser treatment is used to awaken and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes in order to rejuvenate the skin. During treatment, collagen is stimulated, pigmentation is normalized, and the skin is tightened. The deeper the treatment, the more significant the results, though this can also increase recovery time. Often patients will combine Profractional laser treatments with a Micro Laser Peel for optimal results.
Profractional laser treatments can be used not only on the face but most other parts of the body as well. This procedure is ideal for treating delicate skin on the hands, neck, and chest that may suffer from sun damage. Impressive results can also be yielded for those looking for improvement of acne scars, smoothing out color and skin tone, and deceasing wrinkles and fine lines.
Your likely recovery time will be discussed with your surgeon and will depend on your desired outcome and if additional treatments are needed. Tenderness and redness around the treated areas usually fades within a week, after which the treated and untreated areas of your skin will blend smoothly together for a youthful new appearance. Those looking to use Profractional laser to reduce acne scarring may require deeper treatment and therefore increased recovery time. Lighter procedures for wrinkles or skin discoloration will have minimal downtime.
