Sciton Erb:Yag Laser

Content Contributor

The Sciton Erb:YAG laser is an ablative laser, the chromophore (affected cell component) of which is water. The depth of tissue vaporized is roughly 3-5 micrometers. Using the monitor display, the provider can adjust the ablation and coagulation depth. After resurfacing, the skin may become scabbed and weep, and it is important to keep the skin hydrated with a hydrated healing ointment. The epithelial surface will regenerate at around 1 week, but redness may persist for up to 3-4 weeks. The Sciton Erbium laser causes less heat damage than other CO2 lasers, which can reduce the postoperative social down time required for redness to resolve.
