Profractional Skin Resurfacing
Resurface. Revitalize. Restore.
Over time, the gradual loss of collagen from your skin can lead to laxity, wrinkles, fine lines, and creases. Years of exposure to sunlight can lead to sun damage, textural irregularities, melasma, and hyperpigmentation. And the accumulation of dead skin cells in your pores can lead to acne breakouts, leading to acne scars. ProFractional skin resurfacing is an innovative, non-invasive technique that removes the uppermost layers of your damaged skin and stimulates collagen production, thus restoring a smooth, revitalized complexion.
What is ProFractional Skin Resurfacing?
ProFractional is an erbium:YAG laser used for fractionated laser resurfacing. The device releases wavelengths of laser energy into targeted layers of the skin for ablation and coagulation. The damaged skin cells are systematically removed, revealing smoother, softer, healthier skin cells. Furthermore, as laser energy heats the deep dermis, your body produces new collagen fibers, making the skin look firm and taut. ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter skin concerns without damaging the surrounding tissues, ensuring rapid recovery.

The ProFractional Skin Resurfacing Process
Your ProFractional skin resurfacing session starts with a thorough consultation. This treatment is extremely personalized, so your medical provider will assess your skin conditions, analyze your skin type, discuss your goals and recovery expectations, and curate the treatment plan. The medical provider will adjust the depth of ablation and coagulation, density, and scan pattern, following which the handpiece will target specific skin concerns. Once the treatment concludes, the provider will apply a cooling gel to soothe and comfort your skin.
The ProFractional Skin Resurfacing Recovery
After your Profractional skin resurfacing in Dallas, your skin will look sunburnt for a few hours. You may also experience mild redness, swelling, tenderness, and light sensitivity for a few hours. The side effects dissipate fairly quickly, and you can resume your normal activities the next day. However, you should avoid strenuous physical activities, swimming, direct sunlight exposure, and exfoliants for several days. You must also wear sunscreen of SPF 30+ for 3 months.
ProFractional Skin Resurfacing FAQs
What are the treatable areas?
ProFractional skin resurfacing works on the entire face and body, including the neck, chest, hands, arms, back, and legs.
Am I a suitable candidate?
ProFractional skin resurfacing is suitable for all skin types because the medical provider can adjust the level of density, ablation, and coagulation according to your specific skin conditions. If you want to reverse the signs of acne damage, sun damage, and aging with minimal downtime, Profractional skin resurfacing in Dallas might be right for you.
What are my aftercare instructions?
Following your treatment, you may experience temporary redness and swelling that should subside shortly after. It is important to keep the area clean and moisturized. Avoid strenuous activity, excessive sun exposure, and swimming for the next 72 hours. It is also important to use sunscreen with at least 30 SPF and wear a hat outdoors. You must also stay hydrated and moisturize your skin regularly.
When will I see the results?
You should start seeing improvements in your skin tone and texture within a week, especially once the side effects dissipate completely. However, the results will continue improving for several months as your body produces new, healthy skin cells and collagen fibers. The results are also cumulative, so additional treatments may be necessary.
How many treatments will I need?
Most patients need approximately 3 treatments spaced a few weeks apart for optimal results. After the initial series of Profractional skin resurfacing in Dallas, you may need annual maintenance treatments every couple of months to maintain youthful skin.
What’s the difference between ProFractional and CO2 lasers?
Traditional CO2 lasers have lower ablation efficiency because of low absorption by water, so they conduct higher amounts of heat into the tissues, which can lead to extensive downtime. ProFractional lasers are more effective and targeted, so they can focus on specific skin concerns, like sun damage or scarring, without damaging the surrounding tissues. Consequently, the side effects are minimal, and you can resume daily activities quickly.
