Sciton® Laser Resurfacing
Over time, facial skin often becomes wrinkled, discolored and saggy due to UV rays, air pollution, smoking, aging and other factors. If you want to improve the appearance of your facial skin without resorting to surgery, consider Sciton® laser resurfacing. Located in Montclair, NJ, New Jersey Plastic Surgery® is pleased to offer Sciton® to the residents in and around Bloomfield, Essex County, Morristown and the surrounding communities.
What Is Sciton® Laser Resurfacing?
Laser resurfacing uses controlled laser beams to remove the top layers of damaged skin to reveal the newer, younger skin underneath and stimulate the body’s natural healing processes. In this way, the Sciton® skin resurfacing technique can reverse the effects of sun damage, environmental pollutants and aging while leaving nearby healthy skin intact. The result is healthier, smoother skin with a more even tone and fewer wrinkles and fine lines.
The Best Candidates for Sciton® Laser Resurfacing
Good candidates may have facial wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars, discolored blotches, scarring or uneven skin tone. Individuals should be in general good health and have realistic expectations for the outcome of the procedure.
Planning Your Sciton® Laser Resurfacing Procedure
During your consultation we will explain how Sciton® laser resurfacing works, answer any questions you may have and customize your resurfacing treatment to meet your aesthetic goals.
Preparing for Your Sciton® Laser Resurfacing Procedure
Depending on your case, we may suggest that you apply special lotions or creams in the weeks prior to your procedure. If you are prone to particular conditions such as cold sores, then you may also need to take oral medication before treatment.
The Sciton® Laser Resurfacing Procedure
Depending on the extent of your treatment, a topical anesthetic may be applied to your face to minimize discomfort. During the procedure, a precise laser will be moved over your skin. Short bursts of controlled laser energy will be applied to the targeted area, removing the damaged top layers so the newer, healthier layers can lead the healing process.
