Video Overview

Does skin resurfacing work? The short answer is yes. Skin resurfacing does work. We use Sciton Laser for skin resurfacing. It is an erbium laser with wavelength 294. The advantage for this particular laser is that it is a tunable laser, which means that we can adjust the depth in which we want to resurface the skin. This is a very important feature because we can go as deep as we need to. However, if someone only wants to have a minor resurfacing done, we can adjust to do this as well. The results are excellent with easiness laser and again, the advantages of being able to adjust the depth are extremely valuable.
