ProFractional Laser Rejuvenation
For dramatic improvement in wrinkles, scars, tone and texture with little to no downtime.
The demand for effective correction of fine lines, wrinkles, pigment, and scars is always increasing. Now new devices promise better results, less pain, and less downtime than previous modalities.
Over recent years facial rejuvenation has become an attractive option for patients looking to enhance the tone, texture and overall appearance of their skin. Aesthetic concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring and pigment can be addressed and treated with excellent results using ablative laser treatment modalities. However, these results usually come with long periods of downtime that today’s patients won’t often tolerate. The issue of downtime led to the development of nonablative technologies that promise less downtime but not the same dramatic results.
Our new ProFractional laser offers dramatic results and quick healing time for patients interested in improving wrinkles, acne scars and skin texture with little to no downtime. The ProFractional laseris similar to previous fractional devices, but what sets Dr. Balshi’s ProFractional laser apart is the quick healing time and lack of discomfort during treatment. Patients are excited about the ProFractional laser because they see results quickly and recovery time is short. The ProFractional device uses a laser microbeam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. And because only a fraction of the skin is directly treated with the laser, and the surrounding tissue left unaffected and intact, healing time is quick and downtime is short. The ProFractional is an ideal choice by itself, or paired with a MicroLaserPeel, for even more dramatic results.
What conditions can be treated with ProFractional?
ProFractional can be used to improve a wide variety of skin conditions, but is used most for:

- Aging and sun-damaged skin
What areas can be treated?

What is a ProFractional procedure like?
ProFractional is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our office. The procedure normally takes 30 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated. A numbing cream will be used in advance to aid in comfort during the procedure.
How many ProFractional treatments will I need?
The laser procedure is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 3-6 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Dr. Balshi will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. Dr. Balshi may also combine ProFractional with a MicroLaserPeel or other popular aesthetic procedure to further enhance your treatment results.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience a mild redness, resembling a light sunburn sensation. Complete healing takes only about 2-5 days depending on the depth of your individual treatment. Most patients can go back to work only three days after the treatment.
