On a daily basis, we get inundated with commercials that showcase skin care products that purport to take years off of our appearances. It seems that battling the signs of aging is something that is on the minds of most – especially if those signs have appeared on our faces. Wrinkles, fine lines and sun spots are all representative of skin that has experienced a number of years taking on the effects of both advanced ages and sun exposure.
That doesn’t mean, however, that we must all endure weathered looks. There is a way to significantly improve the look of wrinkles, scars and sun damaged skin. It’s called ProFractional. It is a quick and comfortable laser procedure that treats just a fraction of the skin with a microbeam that pinpoints specific areas that need to be treated. It is known to cause little to no downtime for patients.
What are the skin conditions that can be treated with ProFractional? We mentioned that wrinkles, fine lines, scars and sun damaged skin can all be improved by this fascinating laser treatment. But ProFractional also dramatically improves acne scars, age spots, sun spots, freckles and aging skin as well. By focusing in on specific zones of skin, the laser stimulates the production of new collagen to plump up the skin to smooth out all of these irregularities.
But why should you choose ProFractional?
It’ll make you look younger. As mentioned, ProFractional is a collagen booster. By having your face filled in naturally, fine lines and wrinkles disappear. You won’t have to worry about the fake, plastic look that is normally associated with cosmetic surgeries. The promotion of your skin’s collagen also helps for your skin to look smoother and tighter, improving both pigmentation and pore structure.
It’s less invasive. ProFractional doesn’t involve any cutting, rearranging of the skin or manipulation of the facial area. Instead, it resurfaces the skin, causing a lot less trauma to the surrounding areas of the face that are undergoing treatment. As is widely known, cosmetic surgeries not only involve cutting, but they require long healing processes.
There are little to no side effects. Patients have reported experiencing very minimal pain when undergoing ProFractional treatments. Cosmetic surgeries typically involve bleeding, swelling and bruising. As we pointed out, there is also little to no downtime, so patients are able to resume normal activities shortly after receiving their treatments. Often, this is no more than a day or two. Some patients do report mild burning, skin sensitivity and peeling.
Are there any risks to ProFractional treatments? “Those with existing infections or immune problems are generally not good candidates for ProFractional resurfacing,” reports the Derma Network, “Diabetics may need to avoid this treatment as well. There can also be some negative medical and drug interactions for some patients.” As always, your best bet is to consult a doctor before making the decision to accept the treatment.
