Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser
To help patients heal acne scars and get rid of wrinkles, California Skin Institute providers offer Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser treatments. This special technology gives providers a wide range of choices when it comes to skin procedures, thus allowing for highly customized treatments. When dealing with acne scars, hyperpigmentation and wrinkles, customization is very important because no two patients have identical problems. For example, acne scars can vary significantly by depth; hyperpigmentation can vary in the amount of pigment present in any one area and how widespread the pigment is across the surface of the face. And when it comes to aging skin; wrinkles and fine lines can vary greatly in size and depth.
How the Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser Works
The Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser is a highly versatile tool, because it combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in one laser.
Ablative lasers are typically used for laser skin resurfacing, because they deliver energy strong enough to vaporize damaged skin cells. As such, ablative treatments can be very effective for addressing hyperpigmentation, acne scars and dull skin.
Non-ablative lasers are designed to heat up the skin at deeper layers, to stimulate the body’s healing processes. The heating stimulates collagen production, which in turn increases skin elasticity. Such collagen-boosting treatments are especially helpful for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and addressing pitted acne scars.
However, what is truly remarkable about the Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser is the high degree of customizability. In fact, your California Skin Institute provider can select from a wide range of ablative and non ablative settings; for a combination of wavelengths that will be the most beneficial to your skin.
Further, the Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser can deliver the ablative and non-ablative wavelengths at the same time, thus saving you time and reducing potential discomfort.
What the Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser Treats
Because of its versatility, the Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser can be calibrated to treat a number of skin problems, including acne scars, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and much more.
California Skin Institute patients find this laser treatment especially helpful for rejuvenating the skin and boosting elasticity. The combination of pigment reduction, improvement in skin tightness and a smoother skin texture interplay to provide significant, visible improvement.

Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser Side Effects
The side effects from a Sciton Hybrid Fractional Laser treatment will vary from patient to patient, depending on the calibration settings used. For example, a patient receiving a treatment with strong ablative wavelengths will experience more redness, irritation and skin peeling than a patient receiving a treatment that focuses on non-ablative collagen buildup.
