What is ProFractional?

It is a medical laser light that goes deeper into the skin, and treats disfigurement such as scars and stretch marks. Results are a smoother, brighter skin tone and texture.

How does it work?

A small sterilized handpiece, guided precisely over the area to be treated, pulses light onto the skin in an array of very controlled microbeams. These beams generate therapeutic heat to the deeper layers. This initiates a natural healing process that promotes collagen and elastin production and improves elasticity, tone and texture of damaged skin.

What to expect during treatment?

You will need to apply a numbing cream (EMLA, from your local pharmacist) an hour before treatment, for your comfort.
Treatment generally takes a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area treated.
Safety glasses are worn to protect the eyes. You will feel a sense of heat and a slight snapping on the skin.

How much downtime?

Redness and swelling lasts a couple of days, gradually decreasing over a week. Ice packs will be of help.
Keep the skin very clean for first 48 hours. A topical antibiotic may be helpful.
Use hydrocortisone cream if the skin becomes itchy.

What areas can be treated?

Face, neck, chest, hands, arms, and legs. Any scar on the body can be treated including stretch marks.

How many treatments are required?

To see a maximum benefit, 4-6 treatments are generally required. You will notice positive changes in skin tone and texture even within a few days to a week post treatment. Improvements will continue for up to 6-12 months after treatment.


A consultation with Dr. Andre Kirsten will determine how ProFractional can help with your scars and stretch marks.
