Profractional skin resurfacing is effective at reducing the appearance of scars, wrinkles and fine lines. It can even help correct the issues of uneven skin texture and tone. With the help of a specific type of laser, the procedure is able to improve the overall appearance of your skin.
It can be used on the hands, chest, neck and face. During the procedure, the laser creates several thousand pinpoint channels within your skin. The channels are important because they stimulate your skin’s natural healing process.
To heal itself, the skin produces collagen, which revitalizes and refreshes the skin. After the procedure, your skin will become noticeably lifted and tighter. The effects are almost instantaneous, so you can immediately enjoy the benefits.
What Problems Can the Profractional Laser Treat?
Although the procedure is effective for several different conditions, it’s commonly used to treat freckles, large pores, age spots, sunspots, uneven pigmentation and fine lines. It’s also effective for treating wrinkles, sagging skin and certain scars.

How the Procedure Works
By creating tiny channels in your skin, the laser stimulates your skin and forces it to create massive amounts of collagen. During the healing process, the body also ramps up its production of elastin. These two compounds are responsible for a youthful appearance.
The profractional laser is able to resurface your skin, and it doesn’t cause damage to the skin surrounding the target areas. The procedure uses a YAG laser, so it can deliver very precise results.
