What is Laser skin Resurfacing?
Our Sciton® Erbium laser employs computerized robotics that provides more flexibility and more precise control during treatment. It can remove anywhere from a thin layer of damaged skin, up to a thick layer to improve texture and provide a more youthful appearance. It provides superior results because it can be administered with great precision of depth and less thermal damage.
What does Laser skin Resurfacing Treat?
How does Laser skin Resurfacing work?
The laser removes a precise layer of skin to eliminate some of the damaged cells that can give skin a tired, aged look. As the skin heals, fresh cells grow in the treated area. The result is healthier, tighter looking skin, often with reduced wrinkles and improved tone and texture. Our Sciton laser can improve your skin with less down time, less discomfort, fewer side effects, and quicker healing times than other laser systems.
How many Laser skin Resurfacing Treatments are needed?
The number of treatments depends on the depth of the treatment, how much downtime you have, and the extent of the damage to your skin.
Is there any pain associated with Laser skin Resurfacing?
A topical numbing cream is applied to the skin before Laser Skin Resurfacing to help make your treatment more comfortable.
How much downtime is there with Laser skin Resurfacing?
The amount of downtime depends on the depth of the treatment.
What is the recovery after Laser skin Resurfacing?
The recovery time depends on the depth of the treatment.
What is the aftercare treatment for Laser skin Resurfacing?
You will need to use special cleansers, moisturizers and other creams to promote healing. You must avoid direct sun exposure after the treatment and you must wear sunscreen after you heal.
What are the possible side effects of Laser skin Resurfacing?
Possible side effects are redness, tenderness, and swelling, a burning sensation, crusting and itching. Rare side effects include scarring, pigmentation change, and infection. People who get cold sores (herpes simplex infections) must start on antiviral medications prior to treatment to prevent reactivation of cold sores if you are receiving treatment in an area that a previous outbreak has occurred.
Who cannot have Laser skin Resurfacing?
You should not have laser resurfacing if you have a history of keloid scarring; if you are pregnant or breastfeeding; if you have active acne; or if you have an active skin infection. Some lasers are not appropriate for certain skin types, and as such, you may be advised against the treatment. Darker skin tones are much more difficult to treat using lasers, and have a higher risk for dyspigmentation.
