What are the advantages of the LightPod Neo laser?
The LightPod Neo is a unique laser in the field of aesthetic medicine. It delivers 1064nm energy to the skin using a safe, gentle energy pulse, which virtually eliminates pain while providing the best clinical results for even the darkest skin tones. The Neo’s 1064nm laser light is attracted to a combination of melanin, hemoglobin and water within the skin tissue giving it versatility to treat many different skin conditions.
Is the treatment painful?
Most patients report minimal discomfort. No topical numbing is required. Patients experience a mild warming sensation on the skin. A slight redness of the skin, if it occurs at all, will typically fade within a few hours.
Is there downtime?
Most patients will experience mild redness and warmth post treatment for a few hours. Your post treatment skin care regimen will be reviewed for optimal results.
How many treatments are needed?
Depending on your skin condition, a series of treatments may be needed.

Forever Young BBL
Far superior to IPL, Sciton’s BBL (broadband light) photofacial treatment deilvers better results in less treatments. BBL offers a full range of photo-rejuvention treatments for reversing sun damage, rosacea, brown spots, acne and broken blood vessels. Any part of the body can be treated with little downtime. According to a Stanford study, BBL treatments 2-4 times per year can reverse and prevent aging of the skin by keeping the genes of youth turned on.
What can I expect with the treatment?
Your laser expert will evaluate your skin and discuss your treatment goals. Skin will be prepped and cool ultrasound gel applied. During the BBL treatment, you eyes will be covered and protected but you may still see flashing lights. The flash of the light on the skin will feel like a rubberband snap. After treatment, the skin may be red for a few hours and feel like a sunburn. If you skin has brown discolorations from sun damage, you will see a coffee ground appearance for 1-2 weeks. No peeling occurs post treatment.
How many treatments are needed?
Your skin will look smoother with pore reduction and a signficant reduction in brown and red discoloration after only one treatment. For rosacea and broken blood vessels, 2-4 treatments, at 4-6 week intervals are recommended for best results. We recommend maintenance for the best anti-aging results based on the Stanford study with treatments 2-4 times per year.
Halo Laser by Sciton
The Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths. An ablative laser is one of the most effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin collagen production and restructuring is increased, leaving tighter, smoother, more radiant and even toned skin. The downfall of an ablative laser is the recovery and downtime needed, often 1-2 weeks.
A non-ablative laser treatment (like Fraxel) is far less invasive with little-to-no downtime. By heating up the outer layers of skin but not removing them, a non-ablative laser treatment is popular for patients who need to return to their everyday lives right after treatment. The downfall here is a series of several treatments are needed to achieve desired results with a non-ablative procedure.
The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser focuses energy on the deeper collagen layer of skin leaving the surface of your skin largely intact for a quicker healing time. It delivers the results of an ablative procedure with less downtime (4-6 days mild red, flaky skin), like a non-ablative treatment. The best of both worlds!

Sciton Contour TRL Skin Resurfacing
Contour TRL safely removes a layer of skin to a depth determined by your laser expert. The depth of treatment will depend on your skin condition, your desired outcome and expectation for downtime. Because Contour TRL can affect tissue with micron precision, we can treat your skin with the exact amount of energy needed– no more, no less. The advanced technology allows for safer, more effective treatments with faster healing times (5-10 days). Treating skin with a laser stimulates the growth of new collagen, which improves the skin’s thickness and resilience. The skin surface will also re-grow with fresh, healthy cells, which will give your skin a younger rejuvenated appearance.
Deep wrinkles (even in difficult to treat areas such as around the mouth and eye)
Actinic Keratoses (pre-skin cancers)
Poor skin tone and texture
Neogen Plasma Resurfacing
The newest in skin resurfacing and skin tightening technology. NeoGen nitrogen plasma technology delivers controlled heating to the skin architecture to stimulate significant collagen production and elastin restructuring to smooth and tighten the skin, without creating an open wound like traditional resurfacing. Improves overall skin texture, fine lines, wrinkles, tightens upper and lower eyelids, and improves acne scarring. Depending on depth, expect 5-7 days of redness and peeling.
