BBL Photo Rejuvenation
The Sciton BBL Photo Rejuvenation is one of the most advanced FDA approved Broad Band Light Systems on the market today. Considered the golden standard in the industry, this treatment uses the power of pulsed light to treat unwanted pigmented lesions (brown spots) and vascularity (redness). The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin, which is then absorbed by the targeted areas to stimulate and generate new collagen. This process rejuvenates the skin, blending its color and texture and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
HaloTM by Sciton is the first and only hybrid fractional laser in the world that combines deep dermal rejuvenation with surface renewal for a combined synergistic effect you can’t get with any other treatment. Over time, skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure, environmental damage, genetics and the body’s natural aging process. As a result, damage shows up in the form of sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, and lost elasticity. Halo precisely targets this damage to correct skin discoloration, enlarged pores, sun damage and fine lines, all without serious downtime! Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting pigment at just the right depth. A consult is required prior to your Halo procedure. Everyone’s results are different. It is common to experience heat and redness immediately after, along with some swelling. Swelling varies person to person. As your skin purges, you will notice an almost “sandpapery” effect that feels rough to the touch. Most people feel fully healed within 7-10 days.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal is the non-invasive removal of unwanted facial and body hair with the use of a laser. The Sciton Broad Band Light offers the gold standard in laser hair removal. It is FDA approved for permanent hair reduction for women and men. The light emitted by the laser is highly concentrated and targets the pigment in the hair follicle. The absorbed light heats the hair structures, which damages the existing hair and destroys the regrowth potential of the follicle, all without damaging the surrounding normal tissue.
Most patients receive around 80% hair reduction with a series of six to eight treatments spaced six weeks apart, however, the number of treatments required can vary based on age, ethnicity, hair color and thickness.
SkinTyte by Sciton
SkinTyte by Sciton is a fast and effective laser therapy for firming aging skin and activating new collagen growth. It works to strengthen and increase skin’s natural elasticity by utilizing infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation that tightens tissue as it heals, stimulating collagen contraction and remodeling. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process and a new foundation of collagen is created, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. Most clients will require a series of three to five treatments as well as regular maintenance treatments for the most optimal outcome and results can last for several years.
ProFractional Laser by Sciton treats a fraction of the skin to stimulate new collagen growth and improve skins texture and tone, plus target fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and even some acne scaring. Fractionated resurfacing uses laser energy to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin, which are surrounded by areas of healthy, untreated skin. The zones of untreated skin invigorate the body’s natural healing process, while the treated areas stimulate production of new collagen, plumping the skin and smoothing out wrinkles, lines, scars and other irregularities. ProFractional nicely addresses moderate eye area lines and wrinkles, vertical lip lines around the mouth, and acne scarring on the cheeks and temples. For all over skin smoothing, however, a full face treatment provides the ultimate in skin resurfacing.
Laser resurfacing is the most aggressive form of skin rejuvenation, designed to maximally correct coarse wrinkles, lax skin, premalignant skin conditions and color irregularities. One option of laser resurfacing is a clinic-based procedure, where patients with coarse wrinkling around either the eyes or the mouth are refreshed with permanent, maximal reduction. A second option is full facial treatment which requires additional sedation for the actual treatment. After erbium laser resurfacing the skin initially recovers in approximately one week and continues to improve for months. The result is the permanent restoration to smooth, bright, radiant skin.
Moxi is the newest innovation from Sciton and Robertson Cosmetic Center is proud to be the first in Madison Wisconsin to bring this technology to our patients! Moxi a non-ablative fractionated laser that targets pigment by creating tiny perforations in the top layer of skin. These tiny injuries stimulate the dermal repair process to improve tone and texture while reducing the appearance of brown and red spots caused by aging. With Moxi, the treatment is gentle yet effective and the downtime is minimal as most patients resume all normal activities the very next day!
Moxi is wonderful for PREjuvenation for patients looking to do something for their skin before they start to see major changes and signs of aging. It can also be an excellent maintenance procedure for patients looking to prolong the results of more aggressive procedures such as Halo. Best yet, Moxi is approved for the treatment of Melasma! With proper preparation and a series of treatments, patients are seeing great improvement the appearance of Melasma.
