By carefully choosing the volume of skin left untreated, practitioners tailor treatments to the indication and patient's tolerance of downtime. Only the ProFrax-C gives you the flexibility to leave 95% to 0% of tissue intact.

ProFrax-C creates Micro Thermal Dots to treat the skin the fractional way.

FAQ's

  • How does it work?

    ProFrax Laser Treatment (PFLT) produces tiny microscopic sites of thermal impact separated by areas of unaffected, healthy tissue. Each treated spot, called a Micro Thermal Dots (MTD), stimulates the body's own natural production of new collagen in the dermis and eliminates old epidermal pigmented cells on the skin's surface.

    The spared healthy tissue contains viable cells that promote rapid healing of the outer skin layers.

    Since only 20% of the skin is treated by the laser on each visit, there is speedy healing and minimal downtime.

  • How does Fractional CO2 laser compare to traditional CO2 Laser? The Micro Fractional CO2 laser has significantly less down time than the traditional CO2 laser. The traditional CO2 laser removes the top layer (or resurfaces) 100% of the skin to being treated, which results in a longer healing time and can cause long-term redness (up to 3 months). The Micro Fractional laser means that only a fraction of the skin is treated. Since bridges of healthy skin are left in between the treated areas, the downtime is significantly less. Micro Fractional does not mean fractional results. The science behind this technology allows for significant improvements comparable to traditional CO2 laser.
  • How does Fractional CO2 technology differ from the original Fraxel® laser? Fractional CO2 laser is a single treatment that delivers more dramatic results than typical non-ablative lasers or procedures which require a series
  • Can the Micro Fractional CO2 laser be done with other procedures? Yes, Micro Fractional CO2 laser may be combined with facial procedures such as facelift, eyelift, rhinoplasty, or browlift. It can is a remarkable achievement to be able to do this procedure with a facelift. Although the erbium and traditional CO2 lasers may be combined with a facelift, only the areas around the mouth and eyes may be done at the same time. With Micro Fractional CO2 laser, the whole face may be treated at the same time.
