How the SCITONⓇ Laser Works to Take Years Off Your Face

Are you unhappy with the face you see in the mirror? If you look older than you feel inside, it’s time to do something about it. Lines, wrinkles, and age spots might be a natural part of the aging process, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for skin that makes you feel less than your best.

Laser treatment is a noninvasive or minimally invasive procedure that uses intense, targeted light therapy to reach and correct the skin irregularities that you don’t like. The SCITONⓇ laser system is a safe and effective method for fighting the signs of aging and tapping into your skin’s natural regenerative powers.

Dr. Foulk and the rest of our staff at Marion OB/GYN want to help you look and feel your best at any age. We offer laser treatment, photofacials, peels, and more with the Scion laser system, which can take years off your face and boosting your confidence.

Facial imperfections can age you

Your skin breaks down as you age, and it may become thin and saggy because the collagen responsible for volume and youthful elasticity disappears with age. As you lose collagen, you might notice lines and wrinkles developing around your eyes, nose, and mouth.

In addition to wrinkles, changes in pigmentation can affect your skin. Rosacea, a common skin condition, can make your skin blotchy and red. Age spots and freckles come along with sun damage, and sometimes broken blood vessels and unsightly spider veins develop.

All of these imperfections can make you look older and impact your self-confidence. The SCITONⓇ laser targets the source of these conditions — uneven pigmentation and lost collagen — to renew your skin from deep within and give you a more youthful appearance in just a few weeks.

Revitalize your skin with the SCITON laser

The SCITONⓇ laser system is equipped with skin-scanning technology that customizes your treatment experience. Using this feature, Dr. Foulk adjusts the wavelengths of laser energy for maximum efficacy, which improves your results.

The SCITONⓇ laser system provides a suite of facial rejuvenation treatments that can be personalized for your skin concerns. Two of the most popular services that Dr. Foulk offers to take years off your look are photofacials and skin peels.


Photofacials use intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy to target and destroy uneven pigmentation in your skin. Photofacials with the SCITONⓇ don’t damage the surface of your skin, but penetrate safely to the layers below to destroy uneven pigmentation.

Photofacials with the SCITONⓇ laser can be an effective treatment option for:

Skin peels

Another popular cosmetic procedure to give you a younger appearance is skin peels, which are safe and effective with the SCITONⓇ system. Skin peels target the surface of your skin to help smooth the lines and wrinkles, as well as even out discoloration caused by age spots and sun damage. After a skin peel, your body’s collagen production increases and over time, your skin develops a more voluminous and youthful look.

Using the fractional technology of the SCITONⓇ laser, Dr. Foulk creates narrow-diameter channels in your skin. While other skin peels remove the entire surface of your skin, peels with the SCITONⓇ laser keep the majority of your surrounding skin intact which speeds healing and reduces downtime.

With skin rejuvenation at Marion OBGYN, you can take years off your face and boost your self-esteem.
