Laser Hair Removal
Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the melanin in hair follicles and converted to heat, diffusing to and injuring stem cells in the bulb and bulge. Effective hair reduction can only be achieved during the active growth phase and hair reduction is considered permanent when a significant amount of hair does not return for a period of time longer than the complete growth cycle. After a series of treatments, most hair is permanently removed. The selective 1064 nm wavelength has strong absorption in oxyhemoglobin and melanin, resulting in selective heating of veins and hair follicles, which produces excellent clinical results. The powerful contact cooling enables treatments to be safe for all skin types and tanned skin.
ClearScan YAG’s large area pattern generator (LAPG), fast speed, non-sequential scanning, powerful cooling, and flat-top beam profile provide optimal results and patient comfort during the procedure.
ClearScan YAG’s 1064 nm Nd:YAG wavelength and pulse duration are unmatched for vascular lesions from telangiectasias to reticular leg and facial veins. Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin resulting in heating of the blood vessels. With the correct wavelengths and fluence, the vascular lesion will be heated to above 70 oC. At that temperature, blood vessels will break down and shrink which leads to a reduction of the vascular lesion.
Nail fungus is prevalent worldwide and up until now, has had very limited, ineffective, and undesirable treatment options. These options include topical antifungal creams that cannot penetrate the nail adequately to completely eradicate fungus, oral antifungals that are hepatotoxic, or permanent removal of the nail. The Sciton 1064nm technology heats the nail and the nail bed with laser energy resulting in a decrease of nail fungus and temporary increase in the growth of clear nails. This treatment is an easy to perform and provides rapid treatment times. A typical treatment for all ten toes is 15-20 minutes; practitioners enjoy an efficient patient throughput.
Rejuvenation or Revitalization
The Sciton non-ablative laser can create thermal tissue injury which initiates the wound-healing process. Plumping the skin and correcting skin imperfections. After a procedure, visible wrinkles, scars, tone and texture soften or are eliminated.Pulsed energy at a 1064 nm wavelength allows controlled heating of sub-epidermal layers of the skin. This is ideal for non-invasive wrinkle and acne scar treatment through collagen remodeling or for treating acne by heating sebaceous glands thereby minimizing oil production. The pulse duration and high scattering coefficient limit the heated region to a uniform thin layer below the epidermal-dermal boundary.
