Last month we introduced the first of our two newest scar revision treatments, SkinPen® micro needling, and this month we’re going to introduce the laser side of scar treatments! Sciton® technology’s line of lasers have been used to treat a multitude of skin conditions for patients such as wrinkles, skin laxity, hyperpigmentation and melasma, but now, Sciton® is bringing its versatility to a new level by helping patients safely reduce the appearance of unsightly scars. At AYA™ Medical Spa, we house four powerful Sciton® laser systems that can be used individually or combined to give you treatment that is specifically tailored to you, your safety and your scar’s ability to heal.
Each of our four lasers has a specific “task” for helping to formulate your scar revision treatment plan. There are different settings that directly correspond with the specific condition of your scar:
- Sciton® MicroLaserPeel™ – improves the skin’s texture and tone by exfoliating the outermost layer of skin; creates new skin cells and stimulates collagen production.
- Sciton® BroadBand Light™ (BBL) – addresses vascular conditions and pigmentation irregularities of the skin using two adaptable skin resurfacing options in the same system.
- Sciton® ProFractional™ – primarily focuses on tissue removal and tissue repair by providing deeper, dramatic results of an ablative treatment, only this time without harming the surrounding skin not being treated. The laser’s settings can be customized to get the precise depth and size needed to treat your scar while correcting imperfections, firming the skin and activating collagen production.
Sciton® laser scar revision can be safely used on patients of all skin types to treats scars in even the most difficult to reach areas of the face and body. Multiple treatments are required (generally three to five, but this largely depends on the location, extent of the scar and your skin’s ability to heal). The time in between each treatment gives the skin the period it needs to allow natural healing so we can see the gradual diminishing of your scars and repeat treatments as often as you like until you’re happy with your results. With Sciton® laser treatments our goal is to tackle only the scar to be treated while not causing any additional harm to the surrounding tissue not being treated. Many laser systems were not able to achieve these results with the significantly less downtime that Sciton® can and is one of the many reasons this is an integral part of each scar rehabilitation plan.
Since every scar is different we use the time we have with you during your complimentary skin analysis consultation to evaluate your skin, examine the existing scar and tailor the combination of scar revision treatments that will best suit your goals. Scars may have a part of your history but they don’t have to stay with you physically!
