Orange County Laser Resurfacing
Newport Beach Profractional Laser
The Sciton Profractional Laser is used for resurfacing to improve the appearance of wrinkles, acne, acne scars, skin tone and texture, as well as pigmentation problems with variable depth and density fractional treatment. The resulting new collagen that forms, as part of the healing process, leads to visible improvement of skin.
Pre-care & post care: The treatment may require some form of anaesthetic. An anesthetic cream is applied 45 minutes to an hour before the procedure and works very well. Sedatives and painkillers may also be used to minimize any discomfort.
