MicroLaserPeel removes the top layer of damaged skin. As skin heals, fresh cells grow and populate the treated area. The result is healthier-looking skin, often with improved texture, tone and colour.
Depending on the severity of the condition, results can be observed in one treatment. For maintenance, MicroLaserPeel can be done every 6-8 weeks.
Immediately following the procedure, you may experience redness, mild swelling and a sensation resembling sunburn. The treated skin will peel within the next few days. Aftercare advice will be given.
ProFractional uses erbium yag laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, while the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen. This process improves the appearance of acne scars, wrinkles and textural/colour irregularities.
Immediately following the procedure, there will be redness, swelling, and a sensation resembling sunburn. The treated skin will scab and peel within a week. The application of aftercare products will aid with wound healing.
Subcision is a simple in-office surgery for treatment of depressed acne scars. The principle of this procedure is to manually break down scar tissue that is anchoring the outer skin to the underlying deeper tissue. The release of the scar tissue and new collagen deposition lead to cosmetic improvement of the scars.
Subcision is safe. Common complications include bruising, redness and swelling. Aftercare advice will be given.
Subcision is usually combined with Sciton MicroLaserPeel and ProFractional to treat deep acne scars.
