The New ProFractional Laser at PSG Skincare & Laser Center 

Central to the Sciton lineup is the ProFractional Laser, a game-changer in the realm of skincare and the newest addition to the Sciton offerings at PSG Skincare & Laser Center. This revolutionary device harnesses the power of fractional laser technology. It targets specific areas of your skin with precision. How? It triggers your body’s natural healing response and stimulates collagen production. 

Fractional laser technology is an approach to skin rejuvenation that targets specific areas of concern. At the same time, it leaves surrounding tissue untouched to promote faster healing and minimize downtime. Traditional lasers treat the entire surface of your skin. Meanwhile, fractional lasers deliver microscopic columns of laser energy into your skin. They create tiny, controlled injuries. These micro-injuries activate your skin’s natural healing process. To heal, your skin creates collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are proteins that give you firm, youthful skin.  


By selectively targeting these microscopic zones, fractional laser technology can effectively address a variety of skin concerns, including:  

  • Fine lines, 
  • Wrinkles,  
  • Sun damage,  
  • Age spots, 
  • Acne scars, and 
  • Uneven texture.  

What sets the ProFractional Laser apart in our lineup of laser options is its customizable treatment parameters. Our practitioners can tailor each session to address your concerns effectively. Whether targeting fine lines, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, pigmented lesions, acne scars, or surgical scars, the ProFractional Laser offers you versatility without compromising on safety or efficacy.

ProFractional Laser for Scar Enhancement 

ProFractional Laser treatments offer you a remarkable solution for improving the appearance of surgery scars, as well as scars resulting from accidents, childbirth, injuries, or skin conditions. When targeting your scars, the ProFractional Laser works by delivering precise microthermal zones of laser energy to the affected area. This controlled energy quickens the production of new collagen and elastin fibers within the scar tissue. As the scar undergoes this remodeling process, you can expect it to become less raised, smoother, and less noticeable. The laser’s ability to penetrate deep into the dermis allows for effective treatment of scars regardless of their depth or severity. It remains an excellent option if you’re seeking scar revision.

The science behind using lasers on scars lies in their ability to induce controlled damage to the scar tissue. By creating microscopic channels in your skin, the laser helps create new, healthy tissue. It also breaks down the fibrous tissue characteristic of your scars. Additionally, the heat generated by the laser causes your skin to make more collagen. As we mentioned, collagen plays a crucial role in improving the texture and appearance of the scar. Over a series of treatments, you can expect your scars to gradually fade and blend more seamlessly with your surrounding skin. With minimal discomfort and downtime, ProFractional Laser treatments offer an effective and non-invasive solution for scar revision, empowering patients to regain confidence in their skin’s appearance. 



Treatment Consultation, Experience, Recovery and Results 

As for your treatment protocol, your specific regimen may vary depending on your skin type, concerns, and goals. Your personal ProFractional Laser treatment plan will be created after your consultation with one of the board-certified physician assistants who operate the Sciton lasers at PSG Skincare & Laser Center.  

During your procedure, your skin is cleansed and numbed to ensure comfort throughout the session. The ProFractional Laser is then applied to the targeted areas, delivering controlled pulses of laser energy to prompt collagen production and rejuvenate your skin. Following treatment, you may experience mild redness and swelling. Your irritation will typically subside within a few days.

For optimal results, a series of ProFractional Laser treatments may be recommended, spaced several weeks apart to allow for your skin’s natural regeneration cycle. Additionally, maintaining a consistent skincare routine and protecting your skin from sun exposure is essential for prolonging the benefits of treatment and preserving your skin’s overall health. 

After undergoing ProFractional Laser treatments, you can expect to see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and overall appearance. As your skin heals, you will notice a gradual reduction in fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars, as well as improved elasticity and smoothness. The collagen remodeling process initiated by the laser treatment continues over the coming weeks and months.   

Overall, you can anticipate a revitalized complexion with a more youthful and luminous glow. Follow post-treatment care instructions provided by your PSG Skincare & Laser Center board-certified physician assistant to optimize your results and minimize your risk of complications.
