Profractional XC is the treatment of choice for addressing loss of elasticity and fine lines of the skin.
Profractional XC is a Fractionated Erbium Laser that creates thousands of microscopic wounds on the surface of the skin leaving the surrounding area untouched to promote healing. The net effect is an improvement in the quantity and quality of the collagen which produces a more youthful and fresher appearance of the skin.
How is profractional done?
