Frequently asked questions
What is a ProFractionnal® laser? The ProFractionnal® laser treatment improves the skin’s general appearance. It is used to treat wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars and other types of scars, as well as skin damage related to aging or sun exposure.
How does the ProFractionnal® laser work? The ProFractionnal® laser uses the Erbium laser’s energy to make thousands of microscopic perforations into the skin, while leaving the surrounding skin intact. The surrounding areas of untreated skin stimulate the body’s natural production of collagen. This results in a plumping up and smoothing out of wrinkles, lines, scars and other imperfections.
How many sessions/treatments will be needed with the ProFractionnal® laser? This treatment requires 3 to 6 sessions, at a 4-week interval.
What should I expect after each session? After each session, redness will appear along with a sensation of sunburn lasting between 24 and 72 hours. Makeup can be applied on the treated area 24 hours following treatment.
Is there a preparation of the area to be treated? For optimal comfort, it is important that you arrive 1 hour before your appointment so a topical anaesthetic cream can be applied on the area to be treated.
How long does a treatment session generally last? Whether it’s for implants, photorejuvenation or a laser treatment, a session usually requires 30 to 60 minutes.
