The best of both worlds — incredible results and minimal downtime with Sciton’s ProFractional!
Find out more about Sciton ProFractional:
Sciton’s ProFractional resurfaces a portion of the skin to effectively treat a wide variety of conditions, while leaving surrounding skin intact to promote rapid recovery.
ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
The Sciton ProFractional difference means:
- Deep Healing Fractional Therapy- Create channels in the skin up to 1,500 microns deep in a single pass
- Improved Collagen Remodeling- Independently adjust coagulation level to enhance collagen remodeling deep in the dermis
- Short Downtime- Ablating channels means skin can heal quickly while increasing skin turgor and thickness
Start with Sciton’s MicroLaserPeel for full field treatment to remove superficial irregularities followed by ProFractional to stimulate collagen remodeling through deep fractional ablation.

FAQs About Sciton ProFractional:
WHAT IS PROFRACTIONAL THERAPY?
ProFractional Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is
performed in your physician’s office and can be custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
HOW DOES PROFRACTIONAL WORK?
ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding
untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. This skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness
and resilience to the skin.
WHAT IS THE PRIMARY APPLICATION OF PROFRACTIONAL?
Based on an assessment of your skin condition and cosmetic goals, your physician may choose to use ProFractional whenever a combination of resurfacing with
minimal downtime is desired.
WHAT AREAS OF THE BODY CAN BE TREATED?
Most skin areas can be treated. Popular treatment areas are the face and neck, though many people also treat the chest and hands. You should discuss your needs with your
HOW MANY TREATMENTS WILL I NEED?
Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Your physician can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may choose to combine ProFractional Therapy with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.
WHAT WILL HAPPEN DURING THE PROCEDURE?
Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. A laser handpiece will be positioned gently on the skin. When the
laser energy is applied, you will hear a rapid succession of snapping sounds. The handpiece will be moved around to adjacent locations until the entire treatment area has been covered. The procedure normally takes 15 to 30 minutes.
IS THE PROCEDURE UNCOMFORTABLE?
ProFractional therapy is widely regarded as a comfortable procedure, usually tolerated with the use of a topical numbing cream or a local anesthetic, depending on
the depth of treatment.
WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE TREATMENT?
Immediately following the procedure you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Your physician will advise you on specific after-treatment care
recommendations, which may include analgesics and application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.
HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE TO RECOVER?
Complete healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work and apply makeup a day or two after
the treatment. There will likely be some swelling that will subside within several days following the treatment.
WHAT KIND OF AFTERCARE WILL I NEED?
You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid
direct sun exposure until fully healed. It is recommended that you always use some level of solar protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
WHEN SHOULD I EXPECT RESULTS?
As your skin heals in the days following your treatment, you may notice a general tightening effect. However, the true benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs during the 4 to 6 months following your treatment.
