Sciton Laser/ Fractionated Laser – Facial Rejuvenation

What is the Sciton Laser System?

The Sciton Laser is a multi-purpose laser that can help you achieve the youthful appearance of yester-year!The Sciton Laser is a multi-purpose laser that can help you achieve the youthful appearance of yester-year!  The two most popular modalities are the MicroLaser Peel and ProFractional.  These two treatments can be combined at the same time for maximal benefit.  This system can be used on the face, neck, chest and hands.

What is the difference in these two treatments?

The MicroLaser Peel is an ablative rejuvenation process.  It removes the top layers of the skin, removing many unwanted effects of years in the sun.  Patients report a glowing, healthier appearance to the skin and a tighter texture.

The ProFractional component bores tiny channels deeper into the skin, stimulating new collagen synthesis.  This new collagen is generated over time, so the effects are not immediate.  You will see improvements for months to come.

Many people are happy with just one treatment, but a commitment to several treatments over a year will provide you with the best possible results.

What are the risks of the MicroLaser Peel and Profractional Treatments?

Risks include bleeding, swelling, bruising, and minor skin infections. Eye shields are used to protect your eyes during the procedure.

What is the recovery period after a treatment?

This is a serious surgical treatment.  You will need to plan for 4-7 days of downtime as your new skin is healing and regenerating.  Your Dermatologist may offer you some pain medication to help during the procedure and can do special anesthetic injections to help with the discomfort.  They may also offer a cold air blower during the procedure to help reduce pain.
