Sciton lasers are renowned for their ability to reverse the effects of aging and restore a younger, healthier look to the skin. Lasers that are used in aesthetic treatments are usually classified as being ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers remove the top layer of skin in order to be effective. Non-ablative lasers work by heating the underlying skin tissue (without causing any harm to the surface) so that your body produces more collagen which in turn has a therapeutic effect on the strength, flexibility, and appearance of the skin.
We are pleased to be able to offer a range of Sciton laser treatments here at our offices in Weston, FL.
Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser that delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, making it one of the most versatile tools in aesthetics. This is because it is capable of producing the same results as an ablative laser, with the downtime of a treatment performed with a non-ablative laser, giving patients the best of both types of laser in one procedure.
Halo has shown to be able to help address a variety of different skin issues including:
Reducing pore size
Correcting sun damage
Reducing/eliminating brown spots and other hyperpigmentation
Evening rough skin textures
Halo is not limited to one skin type. In fact, it can be performed on most skin tones, even darker varieties provided the correct preparation work is completed. Each treatment lasts approximately 20 minutes and you will be numbing cream ahead of the procedure to keep you feeling comfortable throughout.
In terms of downtime, most patients will find that their complexion significantly improves, and any side effects have abated completely by around day five following their procedure.
diVa is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser in women’s gynecological and genitourinary health. It is primarily used to address vaginal skin laxity concerns caused by the aging process, or by pregnancy and childbirth. The latter has a particularly profound effect on the vagina since it stretches the muscles and skin far beyond their usual limits. Although your natural healing process will repair some of the damage, many women are left with a loss of skin elasticity and smoothness. This can affect your confidence and have an impact on your sexual relationships and sexual satisfaction.
diVa is a non-ablative treatment that uses selected wavelengths of laser energy that penetrate deep into the vaginal tissues, heating the dermal layer and stimulating collagen and elastin production. In doing so, the body will create stronger and more elastic vaginal skin that improves both the appearance of your vagina and any sexual dysfunction that you may have experienced. Some patients also find that diVa can help improve incontinence issues.
The diVa procedure typically takes just three to five minutes and is well-tolerated. Patients can return to their daily routine immediately after their procedure but may experience some discharge, spotting, and soreness following their treatment. You will be given specific advice regarding using tampons and resuming sexual intercourse.
Sciton ProFractional therapy is a fast, comfortable laser procedure that is used to improve and enhance the overall appearance of the skin. As with Halo, ProFractional enables patients to benefit from highly effective treatment with incredible results and minimal downtime. Rather than removing the entire top layer of skin in the manner of full skin resurfacing, the ProFractional laser creates narrow-diameter channels into the skin at pre-determined locations, instead of covering just a fraction of the whole treatment area. This ablative action is enough to cause micro-wounds that prompt the body’s healing response whilst still leaving the surrounding tissue intact. This boosted collagen and elastin production encourages healthier, stronger skin to form that is more youthful in appearance.
ProFractional laser treatment usually takes between fifteen and thirty minutes and can be carried out using a topical anesthetic. In most instances, healing takes place within just five days and patients can start to wear cosmetics several days following treatment. You will start to notice some improvement in the texture and tone of your skin within a week, but since the process relies on collagen and elastin production, the optimal benefit of the procedure is usually not seen until between four and six months following treatment.
