Sciton Laser Options

Dr. Bitter uses the following types of lasers to improve skin quality for patients at his practice. Dr. Bitter customizes each treatment to specifically address your needs and may combine treatments to achieve even greater results.

BROADBAND LIGHT (FOTOFACIAL)

The FotoFacial, developed by Dr. Bitter himself, uses light energy to gently heat the upper skin layers. This stimulates the skin to regenerate collagen and become smoother, younger looking, and more vibrant.

WHAT IT TREATS

The FotoFacial can treat pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, acne, skin firmness, skin texture, and even unwanted hair.

THE PROCEDURE

The procedure is non-invasive and lasts up to a half hour. Multiple treatments may be necessary to achieve your desired results.

RECOVERY AND RESULTS

No downtime is necessary. Temporary redness and minor skin flaking may occur after treatment. The treated skin will become smoother and more even in tone and texture.

CLEARSCAN LASER HAIR REMOVAL

ClearScan™ uses laser energy to selectively target hair follicles and remove unwanted body hair. It treats many hairs simultaneously and can remove hair from large areas. ClearScan is safe to use on all skin types.

WHAT IT TREATS

ClearScan can remove unwanted hair, including ingrown hair, from nearly anywhere on the body.

THE PROCEDURE

The procedure is non-invasive and will usually require a few treatments to achieve desirable results. The length of the procedure varies according to the size of the treatment area.

RECOVERY AND RESULTS

Some slight swelling, redness, and temporary pigmentation changes may occur. The treated area will become permanently smooth after treatment with ClearScan.

CONTOUR TRL SKIN RESURFACING

Contour TRL™ removes a layer of skin to reduce pigment irregularities, wrinkles, and other tone and textural issues. This safe treatment stimulates new collagen growth so that new, healthy skin cells can grow and present a more rejuvenated appearance.

WHAT IT TREATS

Contour TRL can treat scars, solar spots, deep wrinkles, actinic keratoses, and poor skin tone and texture on the face, neck, and other areas of the body.

THE PROCEDURE

The procedure lasts between 15 and 30 minutes, and only one treatment is typically necessary to achieve excellent results. Depending on the extent of treatment, patients may receive Contour TRL with a topical or local anesthetic.

RECOVERY AND RESULTS

Shallow treatments with Contour TRL™ have a three to four-day recovery period, while deeper treatments have a longer recovery time. Temporary side effects include swelling, skin redness, and sensitivity. Patients should avoid sun exposure after treatment. After the procedure, the top layer of skin will regrow and will be smoother, softer, and more even in tone. Deeper treatments stimulate new collagen growth for four to six months after treatment, which can lead to increasingly tighter and more resilient skin.

HALO HYBRID FRACTIONAL LASER

Halo™ offers complete skin rejuvenation and restores a healthy, luminous glow to your skin. Controlled and precise targeting allows Halo to treat the skin at the proper depth to create beautiful results with minimal downtime.
