Laser skin resurfacing has changed!And it can quickly change you too.
Just as in TVs and cell phones, laser skin resurfacing has been transformed by new technology. Less treatment time, more comfort and a quicker recovery are benefits you can count on from our new Sciton JOULE skincare laser platform.
Laser Skin Resurfacing
Earlier laser skin resurfacing systems often used a carbon dioxide laser which emitted a single color light beam. They were very powerful and not very flexible. The latest generation systems are “tunable” – they provide coherent light beams in a variety colors. That’s important to know – it means your laser skin resurfacing can be personalized.
Reduce your facial wrinkles? Remove acne scarring? Eliminate rosacea? All these are now available from a single laser system designed for optimum medical correctness and for your convenience – the Sciton JOULE.
Precise Control Of Depth
The beam used for laser skin resurfacing creates heat to ablate, or remove, part of your outer skin layer – the epidermis. At the same time the underlying skin, the dermis, is heated. The heating action stimulates new collagen fibers to grow forming smoother and firmer new skin.
How deep a layer to remove is the question! Epidermis varies in thickness with age, sex, racial origin, skin color and other factors. Only a physician or well-experienced technician can judge the best depth for you. And then only after examining your skin carefully. Get it wrong and the results may be poor or even painful.
Our Sciton JOULE makes setting the removal depth easy. Its beam power level is near-infinitely adjustable, and, its patterning can be a chosen for every skin area. Combine the correct laser color choice, a near-infinite adjustment of beam power level, and the optimal patterning enables us to treat your skin with extreme precision, especially so in delicate areas. You will receive the best laser skin resurfacing treatment available.
Clarity Is The Skincare Goal
Laser resurfacing is also known as a micro laser peel, laser vaporization or lasabrasion. Short, concentrated pulsating beams of light are aimed at irregular skin. This removes unwanted, damaged skin in a very precise manner one layer at a time.
This targeted approach means there are fewer problems with hypo-pigmentation, or a lightening of skin for procedures such as laser acne scar removal.
Laser skin resurfacing can improve minor facial flaws, such as:
- Fine lines or wrinkles around or under your eyes, forehead or mouth
- Scars from acne or chickenpox
- Non-responsive skin after a facelift
- Aged or sun-damaged skin
- Liver spots
- Improve your complexion if you have yellowish or grayish skin tones
- Birthmarks such as linear epidermal nevi
- Enlarged oil glands on the nose
