The ProFractional Laser is ideal for reducing visible aging, improving skin texture, and promoting deep collagen remolding, all with little discomfort and downtime. Adjustable and versatile, ProFractional is safe and effective for most skin types.

What is ProFractional?

ProFractional is a fractioned tunable resurfacing laser. Fractionated means that the laser removes only a small fraction of the skin in the treatment area. The zones of untreated skin stimulate the natural healing process and production of new collagen. You get the results as a fully ablative laser with considerably less downtime.

As a tunable laser, we can adjust the depth of treatment. This not only ensures that we effectively target your specific concerns, but also minimizes downtime since we are only treating as deeply as necessary for a great result.

What skin concerns can ProFractional treat?

  • Acne scars
  • Scars from surgery or injury
  • Texture irregularities
  • Large pore size
  • Sun damage
  • Fine lines & wrinkles

How much does ProFractional cost?

ProFractional laser treatments range from $475 for scar treatment to $1,525 for full-face treatment. Your total cost will depend on the area(s) you are having treated as well as how many sessions you’ll need for optimal results.

What to expect with ProFractional laser resurfacing at LJCMS

Each treatment takes approximately 40 to 60 minutes. We will apply numbing cream 60 minutes prior to the procedure to enhance your comfort. During treatment, you will feel a warming sensation, which will persist for several hours after treatment.

Is there any downtime after ProFractional?

You may experience some pinpoint bleeding on the day of the procedure. Most patients return to work and wear make-up within 1-2 days after treatment. Redness and mild swelling can last 2 to 4 days, depending on the depth of treatment. We will provide a detailed list of post-treatment care instructions, including what skincare products are okay to use.

How soon will I see results?

You should notice positive changes after just one treatment and further improvements with each additional treatment. ProFractional results are predictable and very long-lasting. Initially, you should plan on completing a series of 2 to 5 treatments spaced 3 to 4 weeks apart.
