ProFractional Therapy in Bristol, VA
Laser treatments or laser resurfacing are common treatments for a variety of skin conditions. The ProFractional laser therapy by Sciton uses a specifically targeted laser to reach deep below the skin's surface to trigger the skin's collagen production to reveal newer, fresher skin over time without disturbing nearby skin. Leaving nearby skin undisturbed promotes a faster healing process.
Patients may choose ProFractional therapy for a variety of skin conditions including:
- Acne scars
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Decreased tone or elasticity
- Hyperpigmentation or sun spots and more

What Areas Can Be Treated With ProFractional Therapy?
The ProFractional laser can be used on the face, neck, chest, or any area of the body as needed. Treatments are performed by a trained healthcare professional in an office setting and most patients can return to normal activities soon after treatment.
What Should I Expect During ProFractional Therapy?
ProFractional therapy takes roughly 15 and 30 minutes to complete. Your healthcare provider will start by cleansing and then numbing the treatment area with a numbing cream or an injection of a numbing medication. The type of numbing medication used will depend on the treatment area. Once the medication has taken effect, a computer-guided laser will pass over the skin. The laser makes a series of popping sounds—this is normal.
Most patients tolerate ProFractional therapy well and when combined with numbing medication, experience little or no pain.
What To Expect After ProFractional Therapy?
After ProFractional therapy, you may be given special skin cream to use and a sunscreen will need to be applied every day to protect delicate and healing skin from additional UV damage.
Most patients can apply makeup and get back to normal activities in a day or two. There may be a bit of swelling, but this will pass in a few days as well.
Remember that the results of your treatment can take 4 to 6 months or more to fully develop. Be patient with your body as it heals and remember that your skin is rejuvenating deep within.
How Many ProFractional Therapy Treatments Will I Need?
Many people have excellent results from just one treatment. Some patients choose to break a larger treatment into several smaller sessions, and others opt for one larger, more aggressive treatment. Talk with your healthcare provider about the best course of action for your case. Customizing treatment to your needs is usually easy.
