ProFractional® laser treatment
The ProFractional® laser procedure aims to dramatically improve the skin’s appearance. It is used to treat wrinkles, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, aging and sun-damaged skin.
In profractional mode
This technology uses the Erbium laser’s energy to make thousands of microscopic perforations into the skin, while leaving the surrounding skin intact. The surrounding areas of untreated skin stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This results in a plumping up and smoothing out of wrinkles, lines, scars and other imperfections.
The treatment necessitates 3 to 6 sessions at a 4-week interval. After each session, redness will appear along with a sensation of sunburn lasting between 24 and 72 hours. Makeup can be applied on the treated area 24 hours following treatment.
The MicroLaserPeel is an intra-dermal laser peel that removes outer layers of the skin (20-50 microns). Stronger than a chemical peel, its intensity lies halfway between microdermabrasion (7 microns) and a full skin resurfacing (50 microns or more). It is performed with a topical anaesthetic. Healing takes 3-4 days or more (depending on the number of microns), which is why this procedure is also known as a “weekend skin peel”. This treatment can be repeated 2 to 4 times, with a 6 to 8 weeks interval.
In Resurfacing Mode, the ablation of the skin is deeper, the benefits are more visible and the healing period is usually longer.
> Before obtaining a cosmetic treatment, it is important to schedule a consultation during which you can openly discuss your goals and expectations with a physician. The physician will evaluate your treatment options, the required amount of visits, as well as the risks and benefits associated with each procedure.

1. Deep Resurfacing – A more aggressive procedure that literally erases wrinkles, pigmented lesions and other skin irregularities in the epidermis and dermis.
2. MicroLaserPeel ® –A light resurfacing treatment with minimal downtime, targeting only the epidermis to even out skin tone, texture & color, and to restore a healthy-looking, youthful glow to the skin.
3. ProFractional TherapyTM –A treatment with minimal downtime, that creates micro-ablated channels deep into the dermal tissue (to treat a variety of pathologies and to stimulate new collagen growth), leaving surrounding areas of skin untreated to promote rapid healing.
