About Laser Skin Resurfacing at CNY Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery
Scars, wrinkles and other skin imperfections can affect the way you feel about yourself and even change the way you interact with other people. ProFractional™ laser skin resurfacing is a laser treatment that targets specific areas of the skin to create a smoother and more natural appearance. Our board-certified surgeons perform this effective procedure in our comfortable office to provide an easy solution to your skin needs.
Benefits of ProFractional
- Smoother skin texture
- Minimal downtime
- Positive results for almost any area of the face or body
We will give you an in-depth explanation of this and other laser skin treatments in Syracuse, NY, during your consultation.
Often, patients who want to enhance their results will combine their ProFractional treatment with other Medical Spa services, such as BOTOX® Cosmetic or injectable fillers. Our surgeons can help you pick which procedures will help you best achieve the look you desire.
How It Works
ProFractional works by using a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. Because only a fraction of your skin is being treated, the surrounding untreated tissue promotes rapid healing.
The treatment takes only 15 to 30 minutes, so it can be completed on a lunch break. Our doctors will apply an anesthetic cream to reduce any irritation. Immediately after the procedure, you may experience mild redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Drs. Gregory Baum and Anthony Deboni will advise you on specific after-treatment care and may provide you with products for use during your recovery period. Healing typically occurs within a few days and most patients usually feel comfortable enough to get back to work within two days after their treatment. Depending on your cosmetic needs, treatments may be repeated up to 4 times, with 6 weeks between each treatment.
Your Refreshed Look
Our surgeons can give you an estimate of how quickly you can expect to see results. We recommend wearing sunscreen following the procedure and avoiding excessive sun exposure to protect the treated areas.
We also offer a variety of clinical skin care products to help you maintain your smooth skin, and our entire team is dedicated to helping you find the perfect products and treatments to fit your lifestyle.
