What Is Sciton?

Sciton is a medical technology company that provides advanced lasers and light source systems. These products target specific skin issues to improve your complexion and restores your youthful appearance. Sciton has individual and combination platforms like BBL, Skintyte, and ProFractional laser resurfacing.

BBL (Broad Based Light) is an intense pulsed light (IPL) treatment that can address acne, age spots, and lesions, as well as remove unwanted hair. It can treat hard-to-reach areas with interchangeable SmartFilters and Finesse adapters. This treatment has ZERO RECOVERY and works by transferring energy to the tissues but is NOT an ablative treatment. The “targeted tissues” absorb the energy then flake off or improve.

Skintyte can be used to treat skin laxity in any area of the body. It uses infrared heating technology to address your problem areas for a smoother appearance. The short pulses of infrared energy promote coagulation of soft tissue in order to trigger the body’s natural healing process. This results in tighter, more youthful skin.

ProFractional laser treatment is an ablative procedure that uses an erbium YAG laser. It treats the target areas with precision. It creates narrow channels of damage into the skin to keep the surrounding tissue intact. This results in effective skin resurfacing and promotes collagen production.

Am I a Good Candidate for Sciton Treatments?

Sciton treatments can be used on almost any skin type. Being a good candidate for this treatment will depend more on your skincare goals and problem areas. If you have skin problems that do not seem to go away like freckles, sunspots, and wrinkles, you may be an ideal candidate for Sciton treatments. If you are looking to improve your complexion and appear as youthful as you feel, this treatment could benefit you. If you are interested, it is important that you are in good overall health. When you meet with us to discuss your options, we will ensure that you understand the expected results and set realistic expectations since each patient is unique.

Your Consultation

During your consultation at Facial Plastic Surgery & Aesthetics, Dr. Robb Jr. or our expert laser practitioners will listen to your questions and understand the desired results you would like to see. We will perform a physical examination of your target areas and discuss how this treatment may help you. In order to comprehensively serve you and your needs, you and your laser practitioner will discuss your medical history, including underlying conditions, allergies and sensitivities, and current medications.

It is important that you express your desired results clearly so that they can be taken into consideration when creating your custom, personalized treatment plan. Additionally, ask any questions you may have at this time.

The Procedure

After you are comfortable and ready to begin your procedure, the treatment for BBL, Skintyte, and ProFractional will start with cleaning the target areas. You and the practitioner will be wearing specialized glasses to protect your eyes from the light. Then the system’s settings will be properly adjusted before the handpiece is passed over your skin and energy is applied. Sometimes numbing cream or other devices to create comfort are utilized. The procedure is relatively quick depending on the number of areas treated and the type of treatment used.

The Recovery Process

There is minimal to no downtime or recovery period following your treatment. For BBL and Skintyte, you may be able to go back to normal activities immediately.

After your ProFractional laser treatment, you may notice that your skin feels tight and may appear red, resembling a sunburn. It may take up to two weeks for the skin to fully recover after your ProFractional session. Our spa is also well equipped to provide you with the best plan to help your skin recover and ensure that more youthful appearance.

How Much Do Sciton Treatments Cost?

The cost of Sciton treatments largely depends on several factors, including the patient’s specific needs. The overall price may reflect the number of areas treated and the size of the treatment areas.
