Sciton Contour Laser
The Contour laser beam is delivered through a computer controlled device that automatically scans the areas of your skin being treated, and the laser beam gently removes the thin layers of your skin’s outer surface, which will be replaced by younger skin growth. Your wrinkles will soften and become less noticeable and pigmented lesions will greatly improve. Your healing time will depend upon your actual treatment depth. It will take a few days to replace the outer layer of your skin. During this time, redness is common and swelling may be present in the areas treated. Over the next few days or weeks, depending on the depth of treatment, your skin will have residual pink or red color which should resolve over time.
Throughout the healing process, Dr. Kang and his Staff will closely monitor your progress and instruct you on how to best care for your healing skin. You will be given skin care products and instructions on how to use them. This will minimize your risk of infection and ensure the shortest healing time. The top layer of your skin will re-grow and can be covered with makeup in about a week. Your new skin will be very sensitive to ultra-violet light and you must avoid sun exposure until fully healed. Although you will have a downtown of a week to two weeks, you will experience smoother, healthier, more vibrant skin with improved skin texture and tightness.
