If you’re looking for the best skin resurfacing options, you should know about the Sciton® Erbium laser. This treatment can uniformly remove the top layers of damaged skin, jumpstarting new, healthy cells to replace the old ones. Unlike CO2 laser treatments which can depigment your skin, the Sciton laser has less downtime and fewer side-effects. This procedure can be a great option to rejuvenate aging skin. Here’s what you should know about this comprehensive treatment.
Great results at precise depths with skin resurfacing
The great news is that the Sciton Erbium laser is the most precise system on the market, meaning your treatment can be tailored to your unique anatomy at the microscopic level. This Sciton laser can treat your problem areas all the way down to their roots without removing more skin than is needed— or not enough. That means you get exactly the results you need. This skin resurfacing treatment is performed under anesthesia at the surgery center so that your treatment is effective and you’re comfortable.
Effective treatment for a variety of problems
There are many different ways that the skin can become damaged and subject to aging over time. Things like wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scarring can often go deeper than the surface, and removing the affected skin can often be an effective treatment because it allows new, healthy cells to grow in. The Sciton Erbium laser can also remove pigmentation that goes deep down into the skin. For most problems that affect the surface of the skin, laser skin resurfacing can help.
You’ll need downtime
Although you’re on your way to new, healthy skin, you’ll need to take careful steps to ensure your treatment area stays healthy and protected. Like with most skin treatments, the treatment area will be photosensitive and especially susceptible to sun damage and UV rays. You may be given some specific skincare products to use during your downtime, the length of which will be determined by the depth of your treatment. You’ll need to be sure to wear a wide brimmed hat to protect your skin from sun and use a broad-spectrum sunscreen on a daily basis.
