Whether its hair, brown spots, or leg veins concerning you, laser may be the answer for you. We offer the newest technology with the Sciton Joule BBL™ (unmatched light therapy for a multitude of aesthetic and vascular conditions) and ClearScan YAG™ (highly safe and effective solution for hair reduction and treating virtually all vascular lesions).
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. However, if hair does regrow it will be finer and lighter than before.
Skin Rejuvenation/Brown Spots/Phototherapy
BBL BroadBand Light technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, Dr. Vick and staff is able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural stage. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.
Facial Vessels/Leg Veins
Laser or light energy is selectively absorbed by the oxyhemoglobin resulting in heating of the blood vessels. With the correct wavelengths and fluence from our Sciton ClearScan Yag, the vascular lesion will be heated to above 70°C. At that temperature, blood vessels will break down and shrink which leads to a reduction of the vascular lesion.
Acne Blue Light
The Sciton BBL Pulsed Light Treatment destroys acne by heating the sebaceous glands found in the dermis (the upper layers) of the skin, which reduces oil production, which in turn reduces the active acne – This takes place over the course of repeated treatments within 2-4 weeks. This BBL treatment is a controlled pulse given in a high-speed uniform manner with integrated contact cooling; the result of controlling the skin’s surface temperature is for maximum patient comfort.
