Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for ProFractional laser resurfacing?

Our highly skilled treatment providers are committed to helping you in your journey to looking and feeling your best in your own skin, however small or large that journey is. Being a candidate for ProFractional laser depends on a number of complex factors which will need to be assessed by a skin expert. This is so that they can clarify exactly what your concern or condition is, as another laser or medical treatment may be ideal instead of, or in tandem with ProFractional laser.

8 West Cosmetic Clinic is led by board-certified facial plastic surgeon Dr. Thomas Buonassisi, with his hand-picked team consisting of highly experienced medical aestheticians, advanced nurse injectors, and patient care coordinators who work together to offer a 360º full spectrum of facial rejuvenation solutions. We specialize in quality consultations, and are equipped with the expertise to design individualized treatment plans that are right for you and your goals.

How does ProFractional laser work?

After your ProFractional treatment, your skin will continue to gradually repair itself over the next few weeks while collagen and elastin are rebuilt in the dermis and fresh, healthy tissue replace the ablated skin. For the best results, ProFractional treatments are typically performed in a series of 3 or more sessions, which are spaced out approximately 6 weeks in between. Upon completion of your treatments and your healing over about 6 more months, your skin will have a significantly improved appearance whether smoothing out acne scars and surgical scars, smoothing deeper wrinkles or age lines, correcting melasma, or fading brown spots.

With the ability to treat deeper into the dermis than many other laser resurfacing technologies, more optimal results can be achieved for more moderate concerns like scar removal and wrinkle smoothing in a smaller number of treatment sessions—without the compromise of an extensive downtime period.

How is ProFractional laser resurfacing performed?

Once your skin has been numbed and you’ve been prepared in your treatment bed, your ProFractional procedure begins. Your medical aesthetician programs the ProFractional system according to what you discussed in your consultation with consideration of your concerns, desired outcomes, and tolerance for downtime. The device then gets pressed gently to the face in a series of strategic passes, allowing the laser to penetrate micro channels in the skin. With pain properly controlled, your face won’t feel a thing throughout the treatment. Depending on what is being treated, the treatment length can take from 15-30 minutes to an hour.

What should I expect with ProFractional laser resurfacing?

Post-treatment, the wound-healing response already starts to kick in as a natural response to the controlled micro-damage and resurfacing. It is extremely common to experience redness, swelling and pinpoint bleeding and light scabbing directly after treatment.

One day after treatment your skin will begin to flake and peel off naturally, and it is strongly advised to let this happen naturally and don’t exfoliate.

3-4 days from treatment you will continue to flake and peel as your skin continues to recover. Most people tend to take this as time off from work resting, as it is suggested to avoid putting makeup on during this period, and to avoid exercise (very light exercise is fine).

5-7 days from treatment you will be able to return to your normal routine. Mineral makeup can be used to cover redness, and you can resume more strenuous exercise.

The healing process is an important part of ProFractional treatment, as your skin will continue to gradually repair itself over the next few weeks while collagen and elastin are rebuilt in the dermis and fresh, healthy tissue replace the ablated skin. Two weeks post-treatment, once the skin has healed and flaking has completely stopped, you will already notice brighter, fresher and clearer skin—but that isn’t where the miracle stops.

Your skin continues to generate collagen and elastin deep in the dermis for the 6 months following treatment. At the 6 month mark is where your skin will have a significantly improved appearance, and the best of the results will have come to the surface, leaving your skin refreshed, healthy and glowing for all to see!

The staff at 8WEST have always made me feel welcome and comfortable with whatever procedure I’m having done. My last visit was with Sonya and she was very warm and made me feel comfortable during my visit. I recommend all my friends and family to visit 8WEST.

As someone who lacks experience with skin treatments and has trouble finding suitable options for melanated skin, Sonya has made the process easy. She has been a wealth of knowledge throughout the consultation and test patch process.
