Fractional Resurfacing With Profractional Therapy

ProFractional therapy is a non-invasive skin treatment that uses a laser to target a fraction of your skin, stimulating new collagen growth and improving the texture and tone of your skin. The treatment is quick and comfortable, with little to moderate downtime afterward.

This laser treatment treats only a fraction of your skin, leaving the surrounding tissue untreated to promote rapid healing and minimize downtime. The benefits of ProFractional include reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars.

After the procedure, you may experience some redness and slight swelling, but this typically subsides within a few days. The real benefit of ProFractional is the collagen remodeling that occurs in the months following the treatment, which can take 4 to 6 months to develop fully.

Our team of experts will work with you to create a customized treatment plan based on your specific skin concerns and desired outcomes. Contact us today to learn more about how ProFractional can benefit your skin!


A NanoLaserPeel is a skin treatment that can help you achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance. This procedure uses light energy to instantly remove the top layers of your skin, activating special messenger cells that accelerate your skin's natural renewal process.

Unlike other treatments like microdermabrasion and chemical peels that may not penetrate deeply enough, the NanoLaserPeel from Sciton is precise and works at just the right depth. This precision allows the messenger cells to communicate effectively with deeper layers of your skin, resulting in beautifully smooth and luminous skin.

The treatment is quick, comfortable, and requires very minimal downtime. You'll notice an immediate improvement in the appearance of your skin, with reduced wrinkles, scars, keratosis, sun damage/freckles, and improved color evenness.

During the procedure, the NanoLaserPeel beam is scanned over the treatment area to remove a thin layer of damaged skin. Removing the top layer eliminates some damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. It activates messenger cells to trigger the body's natural healing process. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area, resulting in healthier-looking skin.


A MicroLaserPeel is a skin treatment that can help you achieve a more youthful and vibrant appearance. This procedure removes a thin layer of damaged skin to improve texture and eliminate some damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look.

During the treatment, the top layer of skin is removed, allowing fresh cells to grow and resurface the treated area. This results in healthier-looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved color evenness. Patients often say that it looks like their skin went from looking tired to vibrant.

MicroLaserPeel is an effective treatment for mild wrinkles, skin texture, scars, keratosis, sun damage (e.g., freckles), and pigment irregularities. Most skin areas can be treated, with popular treatment areas being the face and neck, though some people also treat the chest and hands.

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments needed may vary from patient to patient. Dr. Courtney can personalize a plan based on your specific needs and may combine MicroLaserPeel with other aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

Most patients feel comfortable returning to work within 3 to 4 days, making it a popular choice for those with busy schedules. Because only the outer layer of skin is treated, most patients notice an obvious improvement in tone and texture once the skin heals in approximately 3-4 days.

Deep Resurfacing with CONTOUR TRL

Contour TRL is a safe and effective laser treatment that reduces the appearance of fine lines, deep wrinkles, scars, and irregular pigmentation. It's performed in our office and customized by our physician to achieve your desired outcome and expectations for downtime.

Sun damage and environmental pollutants can create wrinkles and pigment irregularities on our faces as we age. A Laser Peel with Contour TRL can reduce or eliminate these conditions, especially the problematic lines around the mouth and eyes.

Contour TRL safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by our physicians, depending on your skin condition and desired outcome. The laser stimulates new collagen growth, improving the skin's thickness and resilience. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, giving your skin a younger, rejuvenated appearance.

Contour TRL is capable of deep laser peels, and excellent results are typically achieved after one treatment. The top layer of your skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about one week, at which time you will see noticeable improvements in your skin's:

  • Texture
  • Tone
  • Wrinkle appearance

Deeper laser treatments also stimulate the growth of new collagen over the next 4 to 6 months, resulting in increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.

If you have deep wrinkles, scars, solar spots, actinic keratosis, or poor skin tone/texture, Contour TRL may be the right treatment. The downtime varies depending on the depth of the treatment, so discuss realistic expectations with Dr. Courtney.

What areas of the body can be treated?

The most commonly treated areas are the face and neck. Many other areas, such as the chest and hands, can also be treated. Sometimes, laser resurfacing treatments are combined with traditional plastic surgery procedures and additional laser treatments to improve results.

What will happen during the procedure?

Your skin will be cleaned in the treatment area, and your eyes will be protected with safety shields. We’ll position the laser over the skin while a computer-guided scanner moves the laser beam in the designated treatment area. Depending on the size of the area being treated, the procedure usually lasts 15-30 minutes.

Will it be uncomfortable?

The comfort level of laser resurfacing treatments varies from patient to patient and depends mainly on the depth of treatment. For shallow treatments, the procedure is well tolerated with a topical anesthetic. Dr. Courtney may administer a nerve block or local anesthetic for deeper treatments.

What should I expect immediately after the treatment?

Immediately following the treatment, you may experience redness and a sensation resembling sunburn. Swelling may also occur in the treated areas. Dr. Courtney will advise you on specific after-treatment care recommendations, which may include analgesics and the application of an ointment to keep the skin moist.

How long will it take to recover?

Complete healing will depend mainly on the depth of treatment. Healing times for shallow treatments are typically 2-4 days before patients resume normal activities. For deeper treatments, you should discuss realistic expectations for recovery with Dr. Courtney.

What aftercare do I need?

You may be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. After the procedure, your skin will be sensitive to ultraviolet light, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed. You should always use sun protection to prevent sun damage and premature skin aging.

When should I expect results?

Depending on your treatment, the top layer of your skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about two days to 1 week, at which time you will see noticeable improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and wrinkle appearance. Deeper laser treatments also stimulate new collagen growth over the next 4 to 6 months. During this time, the skin may show increasing improvements in tightness and resilience.
