Sciton ProFractional Laser Treatments at Summit Medical Group
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is an excellent choice for removing sun damaged skin, including discoloration, wrinkles, fine lines, and moderate to severe acne scarring. Other benefits include improvement in tone, texture, pore size and skin tightening, without the usual downtime.
Safe and Effective / Minimal Downtime / Dramatic Results
The advent of this exciting new technology in the last 5 years has enabled us to treat wrinkles, acne and other scars, dark undereye circles, enlarged pores and a number of other textural skin issues much more effectively.
This procedure creates thousands of tiny “wells” through the top layers of skin, causing immediate contraction of existing collagen and formation of new collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. Because entire layers of skin are NOT removed, healing occurs quickly.
Fractional laser skin resurfacing has a short recovery time and is safe in a variety of skin types.

Commonly Asked Questions about Laser Skin Resurfacing at Summit Medical Group
What is Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with minimal downtime, used to improve the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is custom tailored to your specific skin conditions and desired outcome.
How does Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
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. This skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which add firmness and resilience to the skin.
Unlike traditional laser resurfacing, in which layers of skin are removed over the entire treated area, in 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 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.
Laser Skin Resurfacing at Advanced Skin Wisdom treats sun damage, wrinkles and acne scars and increases collagen production which improves your skin’s tone and texture.
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 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.
What will I experience after the treatment?
While individual results vary, laser skin resurfacing offers the benefits of speedy healing and minimal downtime. Side effects usually include mild swelling and redness. Mild swelling should subside within two to three days, and redness usually fades over five to seven days. There is limited, if any, risk of infection or scarring.
How much does Laser Skin Resurfacing cost at Summit Medical Group?
Each body area has a different price and every person’s skin requires a different number of treatments for the best results. Please contact us for a specific cost.
