The Sciton Contour TRL (tunable resurfacing laser) Erbium treatment, is one of the safest, yet most powerful and effective resurfacing lasers available today, and can mimic any laser resurfacing modality available. As one of the leading cosmetic procedures performed in the United States, in just one or more treatments, laser resurfacing dramatically improves the overall look of your skin, including fine lines, deep wrinkles, sun spots, and uneven skin tone and texture. Individuals who have deep wrinkles in typically difficult-to-treat areas such as around the mouth and eyes, have found Contour TRL laser resurfacing to be the very best treatment for these types of conditions.
The ProFractional® laser treatment dramatically improves the skin’s appearance, including wrinkles, post-traumatic scars, acne scars, aging and sun-damaged skin. This technology uses the Erbium laser’s energy to make thousands of microscopic fractional channels into the skin, while leaving the surrounding skin intact. The surrounding areas of untreated skin stimulate the body’s natural healing process. This results in a plumping up and smoothing out of wrinkles, lines, scars and other imperfections, in just one treatment.

Are there different depths of pigment?
Yes. Brown spots and sun damage can be very superficial in the skin. Melasma can be more epidermal, or it can be more dermal (lower layers in the skin). The deeper the melasma, the harder it is to treat.
What’s the difference between brown spots and melasma?
Brown spots look just as it sounds. They look like little spots of pigment, or freckles on the face. Some spots may be more pronounced, or larger in size, depending on the amount of sun damage on the skin. Lighter skins tend to get more sun damage as their skin doesnʼt have a natural protection that darker skin types have.
Will my pigment come back?
The main way your pigment can darken is from exposure to the sun or aging. That is why we teach you how to protect your skin as best as possible while still encouraging you to live a normal lifestyle.
Can these treatments work on all ethnicities?
Not all of these therapies are appropriate for darker skin tones. We recommend you come in for a consultation so we can suit the treatment towards your needs.
Where did my pigment come from?
Pigmentation can come from a variety of sources. Externally, the main culprit is sun damage and aging. Scarring can also influence pigment. Internally, hormonal fluctuations, getting on and off birth control, pregnancy, genetics (freckles), and certain medications, can create pigmentation, including melasma.
What can I do to maintain my results?
We recommend the use of a full spectrum sunscreen of 30spf or more daily to start. Then, depending on the needs of the individual, time of year, and other factors, we will advise on adjunctive topical products to enhance and maintain results.
