The Sciton erbium laser also comes with a ProFractional module, for fractional resurfacing. ProFractional is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little or no down time, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. ProFractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, healing time is quick and downtime is short.
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you maybe an ideal candidate. ProFractional can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is most used for: wrinkles and fine lines, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, age spots, sun spots, freckles, and ageing and sun-damaged skin. Most skin areas can be treated. Popular areas are the face, neck, chest and hands.
ProFractional is a fast and comfortable procedure. A numbing cream may be applied in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure. ProFractional is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, and is often combined with the MicroLaser Peel to further enhance your treatment results. Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only about 1-3 days and most people can get back to work and apply makeup within 1-2 days after the treatment. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultraviolet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature ageing of your skin.
A Medicare rebate of up to $338.80 may be claimed for ProFractional erbium laser resurfacing of the face or neck for severely disfiguring scarring resulting from trauma, burns or acne. The remaining out-of-pocket costs may then be eligible for the Extended Medicare Safety Net, more information of which can be obtained by ringing Medicare Australia on 13 20 11.

For the ultimate in non-surgical facial rejuvenation with a visible difference in results after one session, we recommend combining treatments for synergistic effects. For example, BBL Photo Rejuvenation can be combined with MicroLaser Peel, SkinTyte and / or ProFractional, for maximum results with less overall downtime. Even better results may also be obtained when combined with botulinum toxin injections for dynamic upper face wrinkles and / or dermal filler injections for lower face wrinkles from volume loss. Cosmetic injections are usually preformed after BBL / laser treatments.
