Pro-Fractional Laser: What is it and What is it Good For?

Fractional Laser Resurfacing Calgary ABSo many lasers, so little time. It seems that everywhere you turn these days, skincare experts and obsessives are talking about the power of lasers. While there are many options, we don’t want you to be overwhelmed. In fact, having options allows us to give you the best treatment possible. One treatment we want to highlight today is the Fractional laser treatment. If you’re curious about laser treatments and what might be a good fit for you, keep reading to learn about Fractional laser treatments and what they’re best for.

What Is Pro-Fractional Laser Treatment?

The Fractional laser isn’t like other lasers you’ve heard of. Essentially, it’s designed to target only the areas you want treated. Instead of ablating away all of the skin in an area, the Fractional laser is able to be more selective. Though we don’t mind an all-over laser treatment, we do love that the Fractional laser treatments are tailored to those areas you are especially concerned about. If you have scarring from acne, stretch marks, wrinkles, or thinning, crepey skin, the Fractional laser might be a good fit for you.

This treatment can be used on many areas that you might be concerned about, not just the face. That means that we can target stretch marks or scars from accidents and leave healthy skin nearby intact, which helps the intended area heal even faster.

How Long Does Laser Treatment Take?

Treatment times vary depending on the area that we are treating, but lasers work fast in general. You may experience some redness and peeling for a few days, so taking time off work may feel better for you. Your specific concerns will also determine how long your skin takes to completely heal. Your long term results are typically solidified after a month or two. If you have an event you are preparing for, let us know so we can recommend a treatment that best fits your needs and timeline.
