Recovery and Results
Most patients who undergo Sciton ProFractional treatments experience redness for a few days. Patients may also experience some slight discomfort—a feeling much like a sunburn—in the treated area. In most cases, patients feel good enough a couple of days after their Sciton Pro treatment to apply a little bit of makeup and return to work (depending on the depth of your treatment).
It should be noted that Sciton ProFractional treatments will often leave the skin sensitive to UV light, so patients need to wear high SPF sunscreen when outdoors following their treatments. Patients are also counseled to avoid prolonged sun exposure for two months following their treatments.
It may take several treatments to achieve your final desired results. However, once those treatments are complete, patients may notice the following:
- Increased thickness of the skin
- Increased smoothness in treated areas
- More even skin tone throughout the treated area
- Reduction in prevalence of scars (for example, acne scarring)
- Diminishing wrinkles and lines
Most often, it will take up to four to six months for you to notice complete results. That’s because your body is doing a lot of work, and it takes time for the results of that collagen remodeling to become visible. Once it does, patients are often finally able to feel strong and confident in the way they appear.
