Light and Laser Treatments with the Sciton® System
Micro Laser Peel (MLP)
The MLP is a skin resurfacing procedure that uses an Erbium laser with a computer-guided scanner to precisely remove the outermost layers of the skin. The removal of the thin layers of the epidermis helps to smooth the skin’s surface, erase fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, irregular pigmentation and excessive sun damage. The MLP is often recommended in combination with other laser technologies for optimal results. The most common treated areas of the body include the face, neck, chest and hands. The results are smoother, healthier, more vibrant appearing skin with an immediate improvement in skin texture and tone. A series of three treatments are generally recommended each at three to four week intervals.
The Sciton® ProFractional laser is a revolutionary new treatment for skin rejuvenation that uses an Erbium YAG laser beam to deliver a therapeutic matrix of tiny columns of light energy (each about the size of a hair) to the top and deeper layers of the skin with minimal discomfort. The results are a dramatic improvement in fine lines, wrinkles, scars, skin tone and texture. The thermal heat produced by the laser stimulates fibroblasts (cells naturally found in the skin) to produce more collagen in the deep layers of the skin for up to six months following the treatment.
Before and After
This is considered the ‘gold standard’ for treatment of spider veins. Very fine needles are used to inject a solution directly into the veins to dissolve and eliminate them. The solution causes the walls of the vessels to thicken, eventually sealing off the blood flow to them. It usually takes between 30 to 60 minutes for a treatment and generally multiple treatments, six to eight weeks apart, are needed to see optimal results. There is no downtime with sclerotherapy vein removal; however, compression stockings need to be worn for a period of time.
Laser Vein Removal
This is an advanced, non-invasive method for diminishing or eliminating spider veins in the legs or face. The Sciton®’s ND: YAG passes a laser light through the skin and selectively targets the underlying vein. The vein will disappear over time, leaving the skin intact. This laser treatment is usually combined with sclerotherapy to treat and clear veins on the legs. A series of treatments, six to eight weeks apart are necessary to achieve the best cosmetic results.
