what is the definition or description of: profractional laser therapy?

See below: The profractional targets damaged tissue by creating tiny microchannels beneath the skin’s surface. This stimulates the skin’s natural healing process to form a new collagen base. As damaged cells are replaced with new and healthy tissue – your skin is rejuvenated, profractional technology targets only damaged tissue, allowing the healthy surrounding tissue to speed recovery time.
