Tighter, Smoother Skin
Sciton’s ProFractional laser treatment is a unique resurfacing technique that focuses on improving the overall quality of the skin. Through targeted treatments that drastically reduce healing time, ProFractional can effectively target textural issues, wrinkles, acne scars, and other imperfections. A highly trained provider of ProFractional can help customize the treatment to address their patients’ unique concerns.
How ProFractional Works
ProFractional delivers highly targeted laser energy into the skin and leaves a portion of tissue intact.
This process stimulates natural collagen remodeling while keeping healing and downtime low.
Unlike full-field resurfacing techniques that remove the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional creates channels in the skin with more a more narrow diameter.

Consultation for a ProFractional Laser Treatment
Everyone’s skin is different. Everyone’s needs are different.
Sciton’s ProFractional laser device allows you to customize a treatment plan to fit your lifestyle.
Many of Sciton’s trained providers also create custom treatment strategies that employ a combination of the ProFractional laser + BBL® HERO™️ to address pigmented lesions; and/or SkinTyte® to improve skin laxity.
The possibilities for customizing your ProFractional treatment are nearly endless, which means you can achieve anywhere from subtle to dramatic results after just one treatment!
The ProFractional Experience
Before the treatment, the provider will place a topical anesthetic ointment on the skin for improved comfort to numb the area being treated.
You should feel minimal to no discomfort as he or she gently places the ProFractional handpiece on the skin. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 30 to 60 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
Regardless of the depth of the ProFractional treatment, the post-treatment recovery time should be no more than 8 hours.
It is important to keep the skin consistently moisturizedwith non-fragranced products for the first 3 days to allow skin to remain soft and pliable.
24 hours later, the skin may feel slightly swollen and/or itchy. This should resolve within 3 to 5 days.
Patients can apply makeup after 24 hours, but should avoid the sun for 4 weeks after treatment.
