Q: What is Contour TRL?
Contour TRL, created by Sciton, is the first tunable resurfacing laser (TRL) for full field superficial or deep peels. Contour TRL laser is used for mild to deep wrinkles, acne scars, surgical scars, actinic keratosis, pigmented lesions, loose skin in all areas (including upper and lower eyelids), and poor skin tone/texture. Contour TRL can treat all skin types, both on face and body.
Q: How intense is Contour TRL?
The Contour TRL is a full-field skin resurfacing solution, capable of a wide variety of treatment options from a shallow MicroLaserPeel® to deep resurfacing.
Q: What makes Contour TRL unique?
The TRL technology allows control in the exact tissue needed for each patient’s pathology, desired outcome, and tolerance for downtime. Competitive lasers, like CO2, have a fixed ratio of coagulation to ablation, and there is no way to separate the two. With CO2, coagulation always accompanies ablation, which often leads to suboptimal treatments and undesired side effects like hypopigmentation, redness, and prolonged recovery times. The Contour TRL’s unique ability to be tuned for different tissue effects gives it the widest array of possible treatments. TRL technology will plane down wrinkles externally while internally stimulating the dermal collagen matrix to firm the skin and add dermal resilience.
Q: What is ProFractional-XC?
ProFractional-XC™ is used for superficial or deep fractional therapy with optional coagulation. ProFractional is Sciton’s solution for achieving excellent resurfacing results with minimal downtime. Unlike full field resurfacing which removes the entire surface area of a treatment site, ProFractional ablates narrow-diameter channels into the skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This action initiates the body’s wound healing response, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact for rapid healing.
Q: What are the benefits of ProFractional?
The benefits of ProFractional include increased patient comfort, shorter healing times, and tunable results that can range from subtle to dramatic.
Q: What is ProFractional used for?
ProFractional creates clean, micro-ablated channels in the skin, which activate fibroblast production. The result is increased turgor and thickness to the skin. Leaving surrounding tissue intact helps promote rapid healing due to presence of stem cells and melanocytes in the papillary dermis.
Q: What is BBL?
BBL™ is an unmatched light therapy for a multitude of aesthetic and vascular conditions. BBL is FDA approved for benign pigmented lesions, cutaneous lesions, cutaneous vascular lesions, hair reduction, and acne.
Q: What is BBL used to treat?
BBL is used to treat acne, pigmented lesions (freckles, age spots), vascular lesions (cherry angiomas, telangiectasias, and rosacea), deeper lesions, darker skin types, and hair removal. SkinTyte™ is available as a module using infrared light energy to deeply heat dermal collagen leading to a renewed collagen foundation for skin firming.
