A woman’s laser skin resurfacing results have viewers wondering whether surgery was involved.
Sciton for the win, the patient’s transformative new look is actually the result of three of the Palo Alto company’s nonsurgical devices, according to the clinic who produced and shared the results.
“No other procedures. Just the power of Sciton and a very experienced provider.”Restora Austin Plastic Surgery, November 9, 2023
The woman seen in the now-viral before-and-after images is a patient of the Restora Austin Plastic Surgery clinic in Texas, where the nonsurgical treatments were performed.
Not only was surgery not involved, but neither were dermal fillers or neuromodulators, the clinic says.
Patients and other viewers aren’t the only ones in disbelief.
Providers who use the very devices employed also questioned whether a facelift or other surgical work was done.
“Has to have been in conjunction with facial surgery, that needs to be disclosed,” one provider writes. “I operate the same laser on patients and it’s amazing but she has to have had some surgery as well.”
“This was done in my office,” the performing clinic replied. “Just contour TRL + profractional to Face and Halo to neck. Very aggressive settings by my expert laser provider with 20 years of experience. No filler or tox either.”
A factor in the patient’s admittedly unique results is the experience of the operator, who shared the patient’s results on social media.
Video from the practice shows “Sciton Laser Skin Resurfacing” being performed by its Medical Aesthetician and Certified Laser Specialist, Jenny Burnley-Seestadt.
Burnley has more than 24 years of experience in the laser and skin care industries, according to the clinic’s website. Her experience was cited by the clinic as a core factor in the woman’s results.
Sciton’s energy-based devices carry customizable settings that can be leveraged to better suit a patient’s unique skin condition and treatment goals.

The clinic also shared that as far as the woman’s facial results are concerned, they required just “one treatment session,” done in-office.
