What is Sciton MicroLaserPeel?
When it comes to great skin, laser treatments remain some of the most effective options available on the market. Sciton’s MicroLaserPeel® is one system that can address a variety of concerns with laser energy, making it a great option for concerns like fine lines, scars, and sun damage. It works by treating the outer layer of skin cells to reveal a new, healthy layer underneath. Additionally, it can provide a non-invasive option for tightening the skin by stimulating collagen production for a youthful, refreshed look.
Another option included in the MicroLaserPeel platform is Profractional, a treatment that works similarly to microneedling. This means it generates very thin channels in the epidermis that jumpstarts the skin’s wound-healing response with collagen and elastin formation. This makes it a great option for acne scarring, and Profractional can easily be combined with laser peel treatments. These two treatment options can often be an excellent combination approach for acne scars to treat texture, tone, and pigmentation. It can even be customized according to areas of your skin where scarring is more prevalent.
