The Sciton comes with a 2940mm Er:YAG (erbium) laser, used for MicroLaser Peels. This is the gold standard for superficial resurfacing. The computer guided scanner sets the ideal beam overlap for perfect coverage and uniform and precise ablation of the outermost layers of the skin. If you are looking for more than microdermabrasion or light chemical peels, and have little time for a prolonged healing process from a full skin resurfacing, then MicroLaser Peel was designed for you. Generally, microdermabrasion only removes the stratum corneum (10 microns). The MicroLaser Peel is a partial to full epidermal peel (10-50 microns) and is performed with topical anaesthetic.
MicroLaser Peel treat unwanted skin conditions typical of ageing and active lifestyles. Skin conditions such as wrinkles, scars, acne scars, keratoses or pigmentary problems have been very successfully treated with MicroLaser Peel. You will experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin, with a significant immediate change in skin texture and tightness as compared to microdermabrasion.
MicroLaser Peel is the weekend treatment with immediate, lasting results with little time off, minimal discomfort and easy post-treatment care. Typically, the procedure is repeated 2-4 times, spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Healing takes 3-4 days. The procedure can be performed on a Thursday or a Friday, so you can return to work the following Monday. Symptoms immediately following the procedure resemble a sunburn, with minor sloughing on the second day. Redness will begin to fade by the third day, and be easily covered by makeup on the fourth day.
