The Collagen Producer

Profractional Laser Resurfacing in Scottsdale, Arizona

Profractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive, advanced skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, and sun damage—resulting in smoother, younger-looking skin.

What is Profractional Laser Resurfacing?

Profractional laser resurfacing is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure used to improve the appearance and texture of the skin. It uses a fractional laser beam that penetrates the top layer of skin, targeting areas with sun damage, wrinkles, and other blemishes. The treatments are designed to stimulate collagen production while removing unwanted tissue.

Benefits

Profractional laser resurfacing can provide a variety of skin benefits, including:

  • Reducing wrinkles, fine lines, and signs of aging
  • Eliminating pigmentation and age spots
  • Softening deep creases and scars
  • Enhancing skin tone and skin texture
  • Increasing new collagen production to give skin a firmer appearance

Side Effects

Like any cosmetic procedure, profractional laser resurfacing can cause side effects such as:

  • Redness
  • Swelling
  • Burning sensations

These are usually temporary and should subside within a few days of the treatment. In some cases, however, more serious side effects such as scarring or blistering can occur.

Treatment Areas

Profractional laser resurfacing can be used to treat a variety of areas, including:

  • face
  • neck
  • chest
  • arms
  • hands

Post care for Long-Term Results

If you’ve just had a profractional laser resurfacing treatment, here are a few post-treatment instructions to keep in mind:
1. Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser on your skin to help reduce irritation and redness.

2. Avoid direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least one week after treatment.

3. Wear sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher when you go outside.

4. Keep any area of skin that has been treated moisturized.
