WHO SHOULD CONSIDER THIS TREATMENT?
If you’re looking to improve your skin’s condition and appearance, you should consider laser resurfacing, especially if you have acne scars or deep wrinkles in difficult-to-treat areas like around the mouth and eyes. This laser treatment is mostly used to improve the skin tone, texture and colour in your face, but it can also be used in different parts of the body.
Sciton can treat a wide variety of skin conditions, including:
- Fine lines and deep wrinkles
- Poor skin texture (e.g. enlarged pores)
- Actinic Keratosis (sun damage)
- Moles and warts removal
- Freckles and other pigmented skin lesions
- Hypertrophic, surgical and acne scars
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
Sciton Laser carries very few risks, which is one of the reasons why it has become one of the more popular skin related treatments. Our doctors will provide you all information on the risks associated with any type of laser resurfacing procedures.
The procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour or more. The discomfort and healing time varies from patient to patient, depending on the depth, the areas of the treatment and the aftercare. We will design an aftercare plan to minimise any possible side effects and hasten your healing.
Localised swelling may be present in the treated area and can be addressed with cool compresses and keeping the area elevated. Redness may persist for several days, depending on the depth of the treatment, but will resolve over time. It is important that you avoid sun exposure, especially while your skin is healing. If you must go outdoors, it is recommended that you cover the skin and use sun block with SPF 30 or more.
The results will vary depending on your skin conditions and the depth of the treatment. Usually, you will be able to see the improvement as soon as the skin heals. You may also notice gradual firming of the skin over the next several months as the skin’s healing and rebuilding response stimulates collagen production, leading to healthier, more flexible skin.
The laser used in resurfacing has a very high attraction to the water in your skin. When the laser energy is applied, it vaporises a layer of skin to a depth controlled by your doctor. The high-water attraction allows the Sciton laser to evaporate blemishes, wrinkles and damaged skin efficiently and in a safe and effective manner. As your skin heals, a new layer of fresh, healthy skin replaces the old damaged one. Laser resurfacing stimulates the formation of new collagen, leading to a stronger dermal foundation and firmer skin
MICRO LASER PEEL
MicroLaserPeel is one of the treatments that can be performed with Sciton. It is an outer- to mid- epidermal laser peel that precisely removes a thin layer of skin to a selectable depth. MicroLaserPeel is an advanced clinical method to improve skin texture, tone, and luminosity, and can be customised for each patient’s individual goals. Because only a thin layer of skin is removed, healing times are minimised.
