Laser Resurfacing (Deep Wrinkles)
$1800 for any combination of ProFractional and TRL. This includes numbing medications and laughing gas to make your treatment more comfortable.
Sciton has perfected resurfacing with a one-of-a-kind tunable resurfacing laser. The tunable resurfacing laser emulates the entire spectrum of resurfacing modalities, from Erbium, to YSGG, to CO2 and anything in between. A physician can select from a broad continuum of ablation and coagulation depths for treatments tailored to each patient’s individual needs.
Versatility of the Sciton Tunable Resurfacing Technology
- Precisely select ablation and coagulation depths
- Maximize speed and spot placement precision with an advanced scanner handpiece
- Ensure superior uniformity and safety with flat-top beam technology
- Perform unique procedures such as MicroLaserPeel with Sciton’s proprietary overlap algorithm
Fractionated Treatment (ProFractional)
Full Field Treatment (TRL)
A minimal downtime treatment that creates micro-ablated channels into the dermal tissue to treat a variety of pathologies and stimulate new collagen growth, surrounded by islands of untreated skin to promote rapid healing.
ProFractional therapy provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation. The physician can precisely tune the laser to the exact tissue effect desired – from pure ablation to pure coagulation, and every combination in between.
Benefits of ProFractional Therapy:
- Increased patient comfort
- Shorter healing times
- Tunable results that range from subtle to dramatic
- Treats all skin types, both on face and body
Better ablation through more efficient water absorption.
ProFractional utilizes an erbium:YAG laser, which was chosen due to its high ablation efficiency. Erbium has a much higher absorption in the target chromophore water than CO2 (see graph below) which gives erbium the ability to vaporize tissue with very little thermal conduction. By contrast, due to their comparatively low absorption by water, CO2 lasers have lower ablation efficiency and therefore, unavoidably, conduct a significant amount of heat into the tissue.
Full Field Contour TRL™
An aggressive procedure that literally erases wrinkles, pigmented lesions and other skin irregularities in the epidermis and dermis.
Contour TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser) is the safest and most effective full-field skin resurfacing solution available. With tunable technology, Contour TRL provides treatment options from shallow resurfacing (up to 50 μm of ablation) to deep resurfacing (up to 200 μm of ablation per pass). Tunable control means tunable results, achieved safely, to provide customized patient outcomes on all skin types, both on face and body.
Contour TRL provides independent control over the depth of ablation and coagulation. The physician can precisely tune the laser to the exact tissue effect desired – from pure ablation to pure coagulation, and every combination in between.
Contour TRL can be precisely tuned to treat:
- All skin types
- Both face & body
- Mild & deep wrinkles
- Peri-oral & peri-orbital wrinkles
- Acne scars
- Post-traumatic & surgical scars
- Actinic keratosis
- Pigmented lesions
- Lax skin
- Poor skin tone & texture
The Contour TRL employs a dual-mode erbium:YAG laser that incorporates the pinnacle of resurfacing laser technology. Erbium has a much higher absorption in the target chromophore water than CO2 (see graph below) which gives erbium the ability to vaporize tissue with very little thermal conduction. By contrast, due to its comparatively low absorption by water, CO2 lasers conduct a significant amount of heat into the tissue. The clinical significance of erbium’s superior ablation efficiency should be a critical factor in deciding which laser to add to one’s practice. Studies have shown that erbium lasers produce far fewer side effects such as the prolonged erythema and hypopigmentation that are common with CO2 lasers.
Erbium’s high water absorption is only part of the story. What truly sets the Contour apart is TRL technology, which gives the user the ability to adjust the depth of ablation and coagulation independently. By modulating the laser’s energy to deliver supra-ablative pulses, the Contour is able to vaporize any depth of tissue from 4 to 200 microns per pass with extreme precision. If coagulation is desired, sub-ablative laser energy is delivered in a train of pulses that heat the tissue to a selectable depth without vaporizing it.
ProFractional’s TRL technology can ablate from 25 µm to 1500 µm with exacting precision.
