In the ever-evolving world of aesthetic advancements, individuals seeking transformative skincare solutions are often faced with a myriad of choices. At the Northern Center for Plastic Surgery, we understand the importance of staying at the forefront of innovation to provide our clients with the most effective treatments available.

For those looking to learn more about facial rejuvenation, here is an introduction to ProFractional Laser treatments. In the realm of advanced skincare, the ProFractional Laser emerges as a leading solution for comprehensive and precise skin rejuvenation. Its ability to stimulate collagen production, coupled with its versatility and minimal downtime, makes it an excellent choice for those seeking transformative results.


Understanding ProFractional Laser

ProFractional Laser is a revolutionary skin rejuvenation technology that harnesses the power of fractional laser therapy to address a multitude of skin concerns. The technique involves creating microscopic channels in the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting the natural healing process. This results in improved skin texture, tone, and overall appearance.


What Are The Key Benefits of ProFractional Laser Treatments?

Precision Targeting: ProFractional Laser treatments allow for precise targeting of specific areas, tailoring the treatment to individual skin concerns. This level of precision ensures optimal long-term results with minimal downtime.

Collagen Stimulation: By creating micro-injuries in the skin, ProFractional Laser treatments trigger the body's natural collagen production. These increased collagen levels contribute to firmer, more youthful-looking skin.

Versatility: ProFractional Laser procedures are versatile, effectively treating a wide range of skin issues, including fine lines, wrinkles, scars, and uneven pigmentation. This adaptability makes them a go-to solution for comprehensive skin rejuvenation.

Controlled Healing: The fractional nature of the laser allows for controlled healing, minimizing discomfort and reducing downtime. Clients can return to their regular activities sooner than with traditional laser treatments.


Why Should I Choose ProFractional Laser Treatments over Sciton Halo?

While both ProFractional Laser and HALO utilize fractional laser technology for skin rejuvenation, several factors set ProFractional Laser apart as a superior choice Firstly, the ProFractional laser is able to target deeper layers of the dermis, such as surgical scars & acne scars. This more aggressive treatment may result in a slightly longer recovery time, but can be much more effective for long-lasting improvements in your skin appearance and texture. While HALO treatments come with a shorter recovery time, these are not always as effective and do not give such dramatic results.

ProFractional Laser also offers unparalleled customization, and excels in targeting specific areas of concern, allowing us to tailor the treatment precisely to the unique needs of each client. This ensures we give you a more personalized and effective outcome compared to the more generalized and broader approach of Sciton Halo.


How Can I Book a ProFractional Laser Appointment?

At the Northern Center for Plastic Surgery, we are committed to providing our clients with cutting-edge treatments that deliver exceptional long-term outcomes. Start your journey to radiant, youthful skin by calling us on 201-820-5280 to book your appointment.


What Can I Expect at my Appointment?

Our multi-faceted approach to improving your skin begins before you even step foot in the office. We like to recommend a pre-treatment skincare routine up to 6-9 weeks before your laser treatment, using retinol-based products to improve skin health and lower the risk of burns, scarring or pigmentation changes from the laser.

We also offer several types of ProFractional skin rejuvenating treatments to target specific concerns:

East Face: skin rejuvenation to improve skin quality and collagen production.

North East: skin rejuvenation combined with light resurfacing.

East Meets West: skin rejuvenation combined with pigmentation correction.

Eye Tight: under-eye skin rejuvenation to remove signs of aging such as dark circles and/or loose skin.

Laser Lift: the most extensive combination of ablative and sub-ablative laser energy, to both resurface and tighten the skin at the same time. Often used in combination with soft tissue fillers, bio-stimulatory fillers and toxins to non-surgically rejuvenate the face and neck. This treatment is great for targeting wrinkles around the mouth and lower eyelids, as well as improving cheek and neck contour.

On the day of your appointment, patients are asked to arrive 30 minutes early so we can apply a numbing cream to the skin. We will discuss your goals from the procedure and recommend the most appropriate treatment type accordingly. The procedure then takes about 45 minutes.

After your appointment, we will send you home with a post-procedure kit from ZO Skin Health, which includes a vinegar-based soak that is pressed into the skin with a gauze sponge, and an emollient cream containing antioxidants and growth factors to further stimulate collagen production and facilitate healing.


How Quickly Will I See Results After ProFractional Laser Treatment?

Results will be noticeable immediately after your laser treatment, but will continue to improve over a period of 4-5 months. Your skin will be left red, a bit like a sunburn, and will feel rough to the touch. As your skin heals the redness will fade and the texture will soften.

The downtime from ProFracture laser treatments should be about 3-5 days depending on the strength of the laser settings.


How Often Can I Receive ProFractional Laser Treatments?

The ProFractional laser treatment can be repeated two times a year, with at least eight weeks between each treatment for the most effective results.


How Long Will My Results Last?

You should notice significant improvements in your skin quality and tone that will last for up to two years. However, texture improvements can last much longer or even be permanent.

To maximize the results from your ProFractional laser treatment, we will also recommend a skincare regime that includes a selection of ZO® products personalized to your skin type.
