DermaTouch is pleased to offer Sciton skin resurfacing, a procedure that reverses the effects of aging, sun damage and environmental pollutants and gives your skin a healthier, more youthful look.
How It Works
Sciton resurfacing involves the use of advanced erbium-doped yttrium aluminium garnet (Er:YAG) laser technology for full-field and fractional skin resurfacing.
When the laser is scanned across the treatment area, water in your skin absorbs the laser’s energy, resulting in the precise reduction or ablation of the skin’s top layer. The surrounding tissue is left untouched. Over time, your body will replace the removed superficial layer with fresh, healthy skin.
What to Expect
Most patients notice improvements in skin texture and pigmentation within a few days post-treatment. Further, more subtle improvements will appear gradually, usually taking one to three months.
Sciton resurfacing also has cumulative effects, with each subsequent treatment producing noticeable results over time. During consultations, your DermaTouch practitioner will be able to advise you as to how soon you can achieve the precise results you want.
How long will the procedure take?
A Sciton resurfacing session usually takes 15 to 30 minutes. Any topical numbing agents will be applied 30 to 90 minutes prior to treatment.
What happens immediately after the procedure?
Some redness and swelling is to be expected one to three days after treatment. This is a temporary effect and is usually followed by one to three days of peeling.
Will I be able to use skin care products and makeup post-treatment?
Daily application of moisturizer and sunblock (SPF 45 or higher) is important after Sciton resurfacing. It is also recommended that you avoid sun exposure while your skin heals. You may use makeup on the treated area upon approval of your DermaTouch RN practitioner.
Will there be any downtime?
Sciton resurfacing involves minimal actual downtime; however, you will want to minimize sun exposure for up to two weeks.
How often can I have Sciton resurfacing done?
Most patients achieve optimal results with a series of three to five treatments at two- to six-week intervals.
Your practitioner may deviate from this standard recommendation depending on your individual needs and treatment goals. Further maintenance treatments may also be recommended for longer-lasting results.
How much does Sciton resurfacing cost?
A prior consultation with your DermaTouch practitioner will help determine the most effective treatment and cost of services.
Is Sciton® Resurfacing for Me?
You may be a good candidate for Sciton resurfacing if you are in good physical health but have damaged, mature skin, superficial scarring, rough skin texture and minor to moderate skin discoloration.
Realistic goals and expectations are important when signing up for any cosmetic treatment. Your DermaTouch RN practitioner will be able to advise you on whether Sciton resurfacing is the best course of action for your particular needs and treatment goals.
