What is Recovery Like?
Because the Erbium Sciton Laser is non-fractionated, the recovery time is measured in days rather than weeks, like with fractionated lasers. We often refer to Erbium Sciton Laser treatments as the “Weekend Skin Peel,” because many of our patients opt to schedule it on a Thursday or Friday to be ready for work by Monday. There may be some tenderness, redness, and peeling in the 3-4 days after your treatment, but the MicroLaserPeel® technique ensures a faster recovery time than traditional ablative laser treatments.
What Results Can I Expect?
You’ll see immediate improvement in the texture and smoothness of your skin. The treatment reveals the radiance that was hidden beneath that top layer of dull, damaged, and dead skin cells. While the peeling process may require some social downtime, when that phase is concluded, you’ll have continued improvement and enjoy the results for as long as six months.
Dr. Stein personally conducts most of his non-surgical treatments, including laser resurfacing, to ensure the superior quality of care that can only be provided by Stein Plastic Surgery.
