Who it’s for: People that have fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone, age spots, sun damage, discoloration, enlarged pores

Where it’s used: Face, neck, chest

How often: Depending on the individual’s concerns, 1-3 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart

What to expect: Topical numbing is applied for 45-60 mins prior to treatment.d. Most patients describe the treatment as a continuous building of heat and prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. You will continue to feel warmth for the rest of the day. Swelling and redness may persist for 24-72 hours, and sandpaper skin texture may be felt for 5-9 days after treatment. Initial results are seen after 5-9 days, with continued improvement for months after.

Where it’s used: Most commonly on the face, neck and hands.

How often: Depending on the severity of skin concerns, 1-3 sessions are recommended spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

You can expect mild redness and swelling similar to a sunburn effect for the first 24-48 hours. Skin will then crust and peel for 3-5 days, and then reveal softer and smoother skin.

Sciton Profractional

(Mid-level laser)

What it is: A Fractionated resurfacing laser, which means it ablates narrow channels into the skin, while leaving surrounding tissue intact. The treated zones stimulate the body’s natural healing process to generate new collagen. The fractionated method allows a deeper treatment with lower downtime compared to full field resurfacing lasers that removes the entire surface area.

Who it’s for: Deeper skin texture issues such as winkles, acne scars, surgical scars, and other imperfections.

Where it’s used: Face is the most commonly performed area, along with neck and chest.

How often: Depending on the severity of skin concerns, 1-4 treatments spaced 4-6 weeks apart.

What to expect: Topical numbing is applied to the treatment area for 45 mins prior, the laser procedure can take 30 mins – 60 mins depending on how large the surface area is. Redness and swelling for 24-48 hours after treatment, followed by 4-7 days of mild peeling and flaking. Noticeable improvement in weeks with continued improvement for 6-12 months.
