Sciton ProFractional®


Even with the best skincare and lifestyle adjustments, it’s difficult to achieve results that turn heads. However, you don’t need extensive downtime to get stunning results when it comes to laser rejuvenation – Sciton’s ProFractional laser is one of our best options for boosting collagen and transforming your skin at Gilpin Facial Plastics & Aesthetics. 

What is ProFractional? 

ProFractional is a laser technology by Sciton that can resurface the skin and improve its clarity, brightness, and quality by boosting collagen production. Similar to microneedling, ProFractional uses your body’s natural collagen response to achieve more youthful-looking skin at an adjustable level. This makes it one of the most effective non-surgical facial rejuvenation technologies available – in fact, with a full package of treatments, you can enjoy results for up to one year. 

How Does ProFractional Work? 

One of our most preferred types of lasers is called the fractional laser. Fractional lasers work by creating microscopic channels in the skin, similar to microneedling. This process causes your skin to rapidly create new collagen to heal the area. Collagen is essential to keeping your skin supported and elastic, meaning ProFractional actually increases your skin’s inherent quality with repeated treatments.

  • Sun spots and pigmentation

Investing in your confidence is a big step, and your choice of facial plastic surgeon should reflect it. We offer a premier, luxury environment where you can focus on yourself.

With the help of our professional and knowledgeable team, you can begin your journey toward a more confident you. We’ll take every step to ensure you feel comfortable, pampered, and acknowledged. Begin your refined and cultivated experience here at Gilpin Facial Plastics & Aesthetics.

What Can ProFractional Treat? 

ProFractional can rejuvenate deeper skin concerns than most other professional-grade treatments. It’s one of the best options for skin concerns that arise from collagen loss, including acne scars. By breaking up scar tissue and boosting healthy new collagen production, it can rejuvenate acne scars like ice pick or pockmark scars with excellent results. 

ProFractional works best on mild to medium-level concerns. We recommend it as a more aggressive maintenance treatment for patients who are beginning to see the effects of collagen loss or who have even begun exploring procedures like the mini facelift. We also regularly pair ProFractional with Sciton’s MicroLaser Peel for a more complete anti-aging treatment package. 

Who is a Candidate for ProFractional? 

If you’re beginning to see signs of aging and want to achieve noticeably younger skin, ProFractional is an excellent option. It can produce results within a few weeks and its benefits can be compounded with a package of treatments – meaning you may even be able to put off the need for a surgical procedure with the right preventive approach. Dr. David Gilpin, our dual board-certified facial plastic surgeon, can help you determine whether ProFractional can help you achieve younger-looking skin. 

What Sets ProFractional Apart? 

Fractional lasers are quickly becoming one of the best options for laser rejuvenation because they affect only a fraction of the skin. Because they generate tiny channels in the skin and leave the rest of the skin unharmed, downtime is drastically reduced versus lasers which simply remove the surface of the skin. Finally, ProFractional is a great alternative to microneedling for patients who want more precise and advanced technology. 

Side Effects of ProFractional 

For 1-2 days after treatment, it’s normal to experience minor peeling and redness. Although you can return to your normal activities, your skin may take about one week to fully recover. Because the skin will be extra sensitive to sunlight, we recommend wearing SPF 30+ daily to prevent sun damage. You’ll begin to see more noticeable results within a few weeks as the skin creates new collagen and produces a healthier, more radiant look. 


Dr Gilpin and his staff are the absolute best and I had an incredible experience with them before, during and after my procedure. They are knowledgeable and caring and I am very grateful for my experience with them!

I cannot recommend Dr Gilpin highly enough. He is so extremely knowledgeable and considerate in making the patient comfortable with all decisions and during the procedure.
