Which Laser Resurfacing Treatment Is Right?

Because of the flexibility of Sciton’s erbium-YAG laser system, it may be hard to know which treatment is right for you. Based on your concerns, see below for the three main treatments Synergy offers:

NanoLaserPeel and NanoLaserPeel Plus

Light MicroLaser Treatment, also known as the “weekend” skin peel, the NanoLaserPeel is ideal for patients with sun damaged skin and early skin aging seeking a treatment option with little to no downtime. The NanoLaserPeel is a minimally invasive peel for any skin type who wants the benefits of light skin rejuvenation. The NanoLaserPeel provides deeper resurfacing than microdermabrasion with the same positive effect on skin as 3 to 5 microdermabrasion sessions. While results are seen after one treatment, they continue to improve with successive treatments.

MicroLaserPeel

The MicroLaserPeel skin resurfacing system (for medium depth resurfacing) is an advanced clinical method used to improve skin texture, tone, and luminosity, and is easily customizable to each patient’s individual goals. This skin resurfacing procedure ablates the top layer of the epidermis removing old, tired-looking skin and depending on depth, will remove some light blemishes such as sun spots and pigment irregularities. During the healing (length of heal time depends upon the depth of peel) process new, healthy cells re-grow, generally improving the overall appearance of the skin.

ProFractional Therapy

Like Fraxel technology, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound-healing response while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing. The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.

Visible Results

Results from the NanoLaserPeel treatments and the MicroLaserPeel can be seen immediately after treatment, and results will continue to improve with successive treatments. However, because they are more active in the superficial layers of the skin, you may need more frequent treatments to maintain your results.

Results from ProFractional laser treatments depend on how deep and how extensive the procedure is–meaning, the deeper the treatment, the better the results, but recovery and downtime will increase. Nothing can stop the aging process, but most patients see the amazing benefits of these superior Sciton laser treatments for many years with proper skin care and maintenance.

Featuring
PRO-NOX

To ensure you’re as comfortable as possible during your Halo treatment, you’ll be given a topical numbing agent as well as have access to our PRO-NOX device to self-administer as needed. PRO-NOX is an inhalable pain reduction gas that dentists’ offices have been using for years; it combines nitrous oxide and oxygen for subtle and almost-instantaneous pain relief. During your treatment, you’ll simply inhale through the mouthpiece to reach your desired comfort level. The best part is that within 10 minutes, all analgesic will be out of your system and you’ll be able to safely drive yourself home.
