Sciton Laser

Here at The Aesthetic Institute, it is important to utilize the most cutting edge technology. This includes the Sciton® laser, technology that Dr. Wald often uses to provide patients with beautifully noticeable results and allows for minimal pain and a short recovery time.

Dr. Wald may perform treatment using the Sciton laser for any number of reasons, such as:

  • Treatment for resistant active acne and blemishes, acne scars, skin spots, or wrinkles
  • Dermal rejuvenation, microvasculature reduction, and benign pigmented and vascular lesion reduction
  • Skin tightening

Sciton® Laser ThermaScan to Treat Acne Blemishes

The Sciton laser works to reduce acne by killing bacteria and shrinking the sebaceous (oil producing) glands that contribute to blemishes. The heat will also stimulate new collagen growth for a positive effect on wrinkles and acne scars.


  • No downtime
  • Fast treatment 15 to 30 minutes, depending on the area to be treated
  • Penetrates deep into the skin without affecting the surface
  • Effective on all skin types and tones
  • Provides cooling for maximum comfort

Sciton® Laser SkinTyte II to Treat Lax, Aged, or Photo damaged Skin

The SkinTyte II Sciton laser attachment uses infrared energy to heat dermal collagen deeply while protecting the treatment area with sapphire contact cooling. Heat from the laser promotes collagen contraction, which begins the body’s natural healing process and leads to a new collagen foundation for increased skin firmness. The precision cooling that is used with SkinTyte protects the entire treated area to increase patient comfort. This laser can be used on the neck, chest, hands, and arms.


  • No downtime
  • Safe for all skin types
  • Treatment options are customizable
  • Provides cooling for maximum comfort
  • Little to no post-­operative discomfort or swelling

Sciton® vs. Fraxel®

The Sciton is a fractional laser, which means it treats a fraction of the skin at a time. It operates by treating a microscopic column of the skin while leaving normal skin between each column. Unlike Fraxel®, another fractional laser, the Sciton is an ablative laser. This means that more noticeable results are achieved because microscopic columns of damaged tissue are actually destroyed and removed by the laser.

The Sciton laser is also safer and more effective than the more common CO2 lasers. It can also treat a wider range of skin types and allows the surgeon to have better precision during the procedure. This provides an improved patient experience of more comfort during treatment and little to no recovery time. The Sciton laser is easily upgradable and adapts well to new procedures and treatments, so it will always be one of the most up to date pieces of equipment.
