When it comes to choosing a cosmetic treatment, it can be difficult to know which one is best for you and what outcomes to expect. We offer many services and treat a range of different skin needs at Modern Dermatology for cosmetic, surgical, and medical reasons. One of the treatments we offer is Sciton Contour Skin Resurfacing. This newly developed resurfacing service is a laser treatment designed to resurface old or damaged skin in order for fresh skin to appear. It is used to eliminate wrinkles, skin spots, and crow’s feet, improve skin tone and texture, and address actinic keratosis and skin lesions. If you’re looking to treat any of these, Sciton Contour Skin Resurfacing may be just the right treatment for you! This resurfacing laser treatment is totally unique from others like it and is tailored to fit your skin needs.
Sciton Contour Skin Resurfacing allows for customizable treatments that are designed to meet each individual’s needs whether minor or major. The ablation and coagulation levels of the contour are controllable and optimizable based on the condition of each patient’s skin and his or her cosmetic desires. In other words, every treatment is specifically curated for each person! This treatment works on all skin types and on both the face and body. This laser treatment is unlike any other because of its ability to be controlled, but you may be wondering, “how exactly does it work?”
At the start of the treatment, a computer-controlled tool scans the skin being treated and then creates an ideal beam pattern for consistent and rapid treatment, uniform results, and low user error. A laser beam is scanned across the desired area and carefully removes a layer of skin. After this, the body will naturally replace the old, damaged skin that was removed, with a new, healthier layer. Treatments can range from shallow to deep, which is dependent on the desired outcome of the patient. For those looking to remove fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and tired skin, a shallow treatment is used while patients wanting to improve overall skin tone and texture and get rid of deep wrinkles crow’s feet, a deeper treatment is needed.
Laser treatments such as this one encourage the growth of new collagen. After the treatment, your skin’s surface will begin to grow once again with newer, healthier cells. This will enhance it not only by giving your skin a rejuvenated look, but by improving both its thickness and elasticity.
