As new non-surgical procedures for addressing age-related concerns continue to develop, laser treatments remain one of the most effective ways to rejuvenate the skin.
While doctors began using laser treatments to treat skin concerns 40 years ago, advancements in laser technology make them more effective than ever before.
At Cohen Plastic Surgery, we use the most advanced laser system on the market to treat our patient’s skin concerns: the Sciton Joule Laser Machine.
The Sciton Joule system offers multiple laser technologies to treat a wide array of cosmetic concerns with one powerful tool.
What is the Sciton Joule?
The Sciton Joule laser machine is a platform that offers various laser and light energy sources to provide a wide range of aesthetic procedures from a single system. Through arm, fiber, and broadband light, patients can benefit from multiple treatments in one session.
What treatments can I receive with the Sciton Joule?
Through the Sciton Joule, patients benefit from a dual laser system that offers faster, more dramatic results. Some of the treatments available using the Sciton laser include:
- Microlaser peels
- Fractional laser skin resurfacing
- Dark spot removal
- Acne scar improvement
- Acne management
- Skin firming
- Laser hair removal
- Vascular treatments
Since the Sciton Joule can penetrate the skin at different depths specified down to the micron, it can treat several skin concerns while we customize treatments based on the patient’s needs.
In addition to the Sciton’s increased precision, the treatments are gentler and offer less downtime, peeling, and side effects.
How does laser technology work when treating skin concerns?
Laser technology has a long history of treating cosmetic skin concerns. Still, tools like the Sciton Joule laser provide patients with diverse treatment options and better results than lasers of the past.
Lasers work by sending light energy into the skin, creating a thermal effect that targets unwanted skin conditions and creates specified, controlled damage to the area.
Different laser frequencies provide different results. For example, longer laser wavelengths penetrate deeply into the skin to activate the body’s healing response and increase collagen production. The new collagen produces firmer skin with an improved texture.
In contrast, higher frequency lasers have shorter wavelengths that work with higher energy, treating superficial skin concerns like spots of darker pigment, unwanted blood vessels, or acne.
The Sciton Joule laser machine allows Dr. Cohen and the team at Cohen Plastic Surgery to customize treatment by directing the laser’s depth and frequency. Now, we can target the precise location of the treatment to offer patients the optimal benefits of their procedure.
Which patients are good candidates for the Sciton Joule laser machine?
In the past, laser skin resurfacing treatments had the potential to damage darker skin tones, causing pigmented lesions and scarring. However, the improved technology of the Sciton Joule allows for use on almost every skin type and tone.
In addition to being beneficial for various skin types, the Sciton Joule treats many skin concerns, including:
- Acne scars
- Fine lines
- Uneven skin tone
- Brown spots
- Skin laxity
- Unwanted hair
Patients seeking safe laser skin procedures with limited downtime can benefit from the Sciton Joule laser treatments.
