Sciton® MicroLaserPeel®

Skin Resurfacing | Dothan AL | Enterprise AL | Ozark ALMicroLaserPeel® is an advanced skin resurfacing procedure that can be effectively used to treat wrinkles, acne scars, keratoses and hyperpigmentation. Often referred to as the “weekend” skin peel, this procedure only requires a few days of healing before patients can return to their regular activities and enjoy a renewed and rejuvenated appearance.

This treatment is performed using the Sciton Contour™ laser, which gently removes damaged surface layers of the skin to reveal younger, healthy-looking skin. While treatment with the Contour laser can be customized to resurface deep layers of the skin, MicroLaserPeel focuses on treating the shallow layers of skin for patients with only mild damage. This procedure is considered a perfect middle ground between microdermabrasion and full skin resurfacing.

How does this treatment work?

During the MicroLaserPeel procedure, the Contour laser device is moved across the targeted area to remove the outer layers of skin up to a depth customized for each individual patient. This procedure is performed under a local anesthetic to reduce any potential discomfort.

What is recovery like?

After treatment with the MicroLaserPeel, the skin will look like it has a sunburn for several days, and some minor sloughing may occur. Most patients heal adequately after three to four days, at which point they can return to work and also apply makeup to conceal any lingering side effects. Dr. Baker will provide specific instructions on how to care for your skin after this treatment.

Most patients achieve their desired results after two to four treatment sessions spaced six to eight weeks apart, although some patients may require additional sessions. Dr. Baker will determine how many sessions are needed for your individual skin during your initial consultation and as treatment progresses.

Sciton® ProFractional™ Laser

Skin Resurfacing | Dothan AL | Enterprise AL | Ozark ALProFractional™ Therapy is a quick and comfortable laser procedure with minimal downtime. It is used to improve the overall appearance of the skin. ProFractional uses a tiny laser beam to treat thousands of pinpoint areas of the skin. Because only a fraction of the skin is treated with the laser, the surrounding, untreated tissue promotes rapid healing. The skin’s wound healing response creates new collagen which adds firmness and resilience to the skin.

How does this treatment work?

ProFractional laser treatments take about 15 to 30 minutes and are performed in the office. A topical anesthetic may be applied to the area prior to treatment in order to numb the skin and reduce any potential discomfort.

Excellent results can be obtained in just one treatment, though the number of treatments may vary from patient to patient. Dr. Baker can personalize a plan based on your specific needs. ProFractional is often combined with MicroLaserPeel for a more enhanced results.

What is recovery like?

After treatment with ProFractional, patients may experience mild redness similar to the appearance of a sunburn. Most patients will be fully healed within three days and can usually return to work and apply makeup after a day or two.

It is important for patients to avoid sun exposure while the skin heals, as the skin will be more sensitive to ultra-violet light. Dr. Baker will provide additional post-treatment instructions to ensure that your skin heals quickly and safely.
