However, the appearance of aging, whether due to excess sun exposure, genetics, or damage left over from skin conditions such as acne, can make you look dull, tired, and older than you are. While there are many treatment options available for these problems, Sciton ProFractional™ laser treatment may be an ideal solution for many patients.

What is Sciton ProFractional™ laser treatment?

Sciton ProFractional™ laser treatment uses targeted laser impulses to create micro-traumas within the skin’s surface while leaving surrounding skin intact. The micro-traumas are narrow channels in the skin’s surface and stimulate the body’s natural healing process, encouraging the growth of healthy new skin and stimulating collagen production. Because healthy skin surrounds each micro-wound, the healing process is much faster than with many other laser resurfacing treatments, and also faster than most chemical peels. Most patients report seeing significant improvements within days of treatment, although the skin typically continues to heal and repair itself for some time.

Sciton ProFractional™ compared to other laser skin treatment options

Sciton ProFractional™ laser treatment is significantly more effective than CO2 laser treatment and is much safer due to much lower heat conduction into the skin, greatly reducing the risk of burns or other complications. Sciton ProFractional™ is also able to penetrate deeper into the skin’s surface than most other laser treatment options, thus delivering greater treatment capacity as the skin can heal at a deeper level and stimulate better collagen production. Because Sciton ProFractional™ penetrates deep into the skin, the outer layer of the skin is largely left intact, thus reducing healing time, redness, and pain commonly associated with other laser treatment options.

What types of problems does Sciton ProFractional™ treat?

Sciton ProFractional™ is ideal for treating moderate to severe wrinkles, significant acne scars, additional scars from prior injury or surgery, and hyperpigmentation. Some patients also find it beneficial in improving overall skin tone and texture. Sciton ProFractional™ is typically used on the face when addressing wrinkles, but may be used on other body parts when treating scars. The delivery system may be calibrated to your skin’s specific condition, unlike some other treatments which offer a one-size-fits all approach.

What are the typical results of Sciton ProFractional™?

The majority of patients who undergo Sciton ProFractional™ laser treatments are more than happy with their results and report that they see noticeable improvements within days of their first treatment. They note that their skin appears firmer, healthier, and more youthful afterward, often so much that others notice, making comments such as, “You look so well rested!” Patients state their skin is smooth, vibrant, and healthy.
