How Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
Stein Plastic Surgery stands behind the Sciton® Erbium laser for laser skin resurfacing because it offers dramatically successful results for the least risk. Sciton® Erbium’s computer-controlled 2940 nm wavelength erases visible signs of aging and skin damage caused by the sun and environmental toxins. It is the most sophisticated laser of its kind, giving Dr. Stein unparalleled precision and accuracy in treating your problem areas while leaving surrounding tissues untouched. The Sciton® Erbium laser:
- Reverses sun damage
- Reduces wrinkles, even in delicate areas around the mouth and eyes
- Minimizes acne scars
- Evens skin tone and texture
- Diminishes age spots
- Stimulates collagen production for firmer, more youthful skin
The Sciton® Erbium laser targets the water in the skin to remove the outermost layer of the epidermis and stimulate collagen fiber production in the dermis. There are three treatment depths available: superficial, fractional, and deep. For some patients, having more shallow treatments rather than fewer deep treatments is more ideal for recovery times. Patients specifically concerned about extensive recovery may opt for the MicroLaserPeel® with Dr. Stein, which achieves remarkable results with only 3-4 days recovery.
