Does Sciton Skintyte Laser replace the use of Botox and fillers?
Posted 11 May 2008
I am considering the Sciton Skintyte laser on my face and neck. I was told during my consultation that the Sciton skin tightening would eliminate the need for Botox and Restalyne, which I have previously had done. I also now have deep creases on my face from sleeping on my side and my skin is starting to sag around my neck, which I would like to address hopefully with the Sciton.
I am not completley sure if their claims of treating the deeper lines on my face are true. They also stated the effects should last about 5 years, but of course there are no guarantees.
I am 43 and live in Florida and have always been a sun worshipper and am now being rewarded with skin cancer (basal cell and melanoma) and wrinkles. Also, are these laser procedures safe or will they exacerbate the problems in the long run? I would like your opinion on the Sciton. Am I wasting my money?
