Laser Skin Resurfacing/Rejuvenation

ProFractional Laser

A tiny laser beam from the Sciton ProFractional laser treats thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. This invigorates the body’s natural healing process, which stimulates the production of new collagen, plumps the skin and smooths out irregularities. It will improve the overall appearance of your skin. The procedure is customized for your specific skin conditions and goals.

ProFractional Laser is most commonly used for:

  • Most skin areas, with the face and neck the most common, followed by the chest and hands
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Post-traumatic scars
  • Acne scars
  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Freckles
  • Aging and sun-damaged skin
  • Melasma, a tan discoloration of a woman’s face

You can expect:

  • Quick healing
  • Treatment to usually take 15 to 30 minutes
  • Mild redness, a sunburn like feeling and some swelling
  • To keep the skin moist to aid healing
  • Returning to work 1 to 2 days after treatment
  • Skin sensitivity to ultra-violet light, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed
  • Collagen remodeling to continue to occur 4 to 6 months following treatment
  • Excellent results from just one treatment, but the number of treatments may vary based on your goals

MicroLaserPeel

The Sciton MicroLaserPeel beam is scanned over the area to remove a thin layer of damaged skin. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow and resurface the treated area. This improves the skin texture and gives a more youthful, vibrant appearance. The MicroLaserPeel offers more than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels.

MicroLaserPeel is most commonly used for:

  • Most skin areas, with the face and neck the most common, followed by the chest and hands
  • Mild wrinkles
  • Smile lines
  • Scars
  • Freckles
  • Keratosis, a small, rough growth
  • Sun damage
  • Pigment irregularities

You can expect:

  • The procedure to usually take 15 to 30 minutes depending on the size of area being treated
  • Minimal discomfort, with a topical numbing cream used for deeper treatment
  • Obvious improvement in approximately 1 week
  • Your skin to have a frosty appearance until the skin peels away within a few days
  • Some skin redness, a sunburn type feeling and mild swelling
  • To keep the skin moist to aid healing
  • To return to work within 3 to 4 days
  • Skin sensitivity to ultra-violet light, so you must avoid direct sun exposure until fully healed
  • The number of treatments to vary based on your goals, but excellent results can be obtained with one treatment
