Laser Skin Renewal Q & A

ProFractional lasers “create smoother, clearer skin that is resurfaced from the inside out, and stimulate the growth of new collagen,” according to InStyle. The treatment – most commonly used to treat scars, wrinkles, acne scars and sun damage – improves skin tone, smoothes out fine lines, and evens out skin discoloration by treating tiny sections of the skin at a time. 

What’s laser skin renewal?

Dr. Foulk offers laser skin renewal treatments using the versatile Sciton laser. The heat from the dual wavelength laser reaches deep into your dermis (the lower layer of your skin) to target hyperpigmented areas that you can’t even see yet. These lesions rise to the surface, where they peel off after a few days.

The laser heat also targets the collagen in your deep skin layers, stimulating the production of newer, stronger collagen and tightening your skin. The Sciton stimulates your skin to repair itself from the inside out.  

The Sciton can also treat your epidermis (the outer layer of your skin), where it targets hyperpigmented areas, such as age spots and sun spots, and smooths out fine lines and wrinkles. During your treatment, the Sciton laser keeps your skin comfortable by constantly monitoring and cooling your skin.  

You can choose from one or two aggressive treatments with the ablative laser — which targets the top layer of your skin — or multiple sessions with the non-ablative laser, which heats the underlying skin tissue, over a longer period of time.

The ablative option allows you to improve your skin quickly, but your face is noticeably reddened for two weeks. If you choose the nonablative option, you’ll have little to no downtime, making it the perfect choice for a busy professional.

What else can the Sciton laser do?

Dr. Foulk uses the Sciton laser to perform a variety of cosmetic improvements. The Sciton can be used on your face, neck, decolletage, or any area of your skin that needs improvement. Sciton services include:

Does laser skin renewal help prevent signs of aging?

The Sciton laser is a perfect tool for rejuvenation. If you’ve noticed any signs of aging — including crow’s feet or forehead furrows — the Sciton encourages your skin to repair itself and stay youthful and radiant.
