Profractional Modalities

Profractional (Fractional ablative skin resurfacing) is a single treatment procedure offering three modalities: short pulse for more ablation, long pulse for adjustable thermal damage, and a dual pulse for a combination of both.


Profractional: How does it Work Fractional ablative skin resurfacing allows control of depth and the level of heating around the microbeam columns. With a single treatment, Dr. Kris Reddy, West Palm Beach Plastic Surgeon, can perform a two-day downtime procedure or a deeper treatment. The procedure is efficient at removing damaged skin. Unique micro-fractional technology preserves portions of healthy tissue surrounding the treatment zone, fostering tissue regrowth and lower patient downtime, with significantly less pain than traditional ablative laser procedures.


Profractional and Fraxel: Conditions Treated Areas for Profractional To Treat: *Texture and Tone of the skin *acne scars *Facial Lines *Sun damaged skin (e.g. Brown Spots)


Profractional: Treatment Regimen Profractional Laser is a deeper laser (although not as aggressive as erbium laser resurfacing) and you will have some downtime for approximately 2-3 days while you heal. Profractional laser provides significant improvement after one treatment. However, it may need to be repeated to address deeper acne scars or wrinkles.


Fraxel: Treatment Regimen Fraxel Laser usually derives its benefits over the course of 5 to 6 treatments spaced one month apart. It is a more superficial laser than Profractional, and generally creates redness similar to a bad sunburn after each treatment. This redness subsides over 1 week, but does not require downtime.
