ProFractional XC laser by Sciton

What type of laser is the ProFractional XC?
The Profractional XC laser is a tunable fractional Er:YAG laser. Its ability to be tuned allows me to dictate how much heat I deliver to the target. This is important especially when treating Asian patients with darker complexions; it decreases the risk of complications.

Who would benefit from treatment with the ProFractional XC laser?
Patients with:

  • Acne scars
  • Scars from trauma or surgery
  • Keloids
  • Fine wrinkles and lines
  • Dark eye rings

Is there downtime?
Yes. Depending on the depth of treatment, recovery time is usually between two to four days.

How many treatments are required?
This depends on what we are treating and the severity. For example, moderately severe acne scars require, on average, three treatments for significant improvement.

Will it thin the skin?
No, this is a myth. Fractional lasers result in improved collagen content, not the opposite.
