What is ProFractional™ Resurfacing Therapy
Wondering how to get smooth, glowing, and beautifully contoured skin? ProFractional™ laser resurfacing treatments can help you look and feel younger and are versatile, easy, and offer customizable-healing times.
Why Resurfacing/ProFractional™ Laser?
There are many types of resurfacing laser treatments, but none quite like the ProFractional™ Laser. It works to tighten, grow collagen, and improve the overall look and feel your skin, all with minimal downtime and recovery.
How Resurfacing/ProFractional™ Laser Works
The ProFractional™ laser sends channels of energy deep into the skin through tiny holes in the tissue which stimulates your body’s natural healing process and encourages new collagen to grow. It treats small parts of the skin at a time to gradually tighten and improve the look of your skin over the course of several months.
