Fractional Skin Resurfacing or ProFractional Therapy
Sciton ProFractional Therapy / Fractional Skin Resurfacing is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with little downtime, used for improving the overall appearance of your skin.
ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is directly treated with the laser, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s healing process creates new collagen which adds firmness and resilience to the skin. The procedure can be customized to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome and is performed at Revitta in Manhattan and Brooklyn, NY.

Sciton Fractional Skin Resurfacing is an excellent choice for removing sun damage, including discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines, and mild to severe acne scarring. Other benefits include improvement in tone, texture, pore size and skin tightening, without significant downtime.
ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
Commonly Asked Questions
What is Sciton ProFractional Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Sciton Profractional Treatment is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with minimal downtime, used to improve the overall appearance of your skin. Unlike traditional laser resurfacing, in which layers of skin are removed over the entire treated area, European Style Aesthetics performs fractional resurfacing. Tiny microscopic spots of laser energy treat about 20% of the surface area in a typical treatment. The tiny spots of laser energy penetrate deep enough into the skin to remove even deep pigmentary problems such as melasma and to stimulate synthesis of new collagen, which results in smoothing of wrinkles and acne scars and shrinkage of pore size. Fractional resurfacing laser treatments are safe for all areas of the body and can even improve stretch marks. Fractional Skin Resurfacing at European Style Aesthetics treats sun damage, wrinkles and acne scars and increases collagen production which improves your skin’s tone and texture.
How does the ProFractional work?
ProFractional uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, and the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping up the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities.
Who should consider a ProFractional treatment?
If you are looking for younger looking skin, or to improve scars, wrinkles, or sun damage in a comfortable treatment with a fast recovery, then you may be an ideal candidate for ProFractional.
What is a ProFractional procedure like?
ProFractional is a fast, comfortable procedure done in our office. The procedure normally takes 30-45 minutes depending on the condition and the size of the area treated.
Where can Sciton Profractional Treatment be used?
The most common areas are those that receive the most sun, such as the face, neck, chest and hands.
How long does the treatment take?
A treatment normally takes approximately 20 – 40 minutes, although time varies depending upon the area being treated.
How many ProFractional treatments will I need?
ProFractional is typically done in a series of 1-4 treatments, spaced 4-8 weeks apart, depending on your needs. Our professionals will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. You may also combine ProFractional with a MicroLaserPeel or other popular aesthetic procedures to further enhance your treatment results.
What should I expect after treatment?
Immediately following the procedure you will experience redness, resembling a light sunburn, and mild swelling is expected. Complete healing takes anywhere from 1-3 days depending on the depth of the procedure. Most patients can get back to work and apply make-up within 1-2 days after the treatment.
What special aftercare treatment will I need?
It is important to follow post treatment instructions which may include some skin care products and instructions on how to use them. Your skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light after the procedure, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use some level of sun protection to avoid sun damage and premature aging of your skin.
How soon will I see results?
Dramatic results can be seen after just one treatment with continued improvement over time. Frequently four to six treatments are recommended spaced out two to four weeks apart in order to achieve optimal results.
