Sciton® brand lasers are some of the best aesthetic lasers available on the market today. At Beth Collins MD, we’re proud to offer our clients three of the most effective laser skin resurfacing procedures from this successful line — the Halo™ laser, the NanoLaserPeel™, and the Contour TRL™. All of these lasers allow Dr. Collins to precisely adjust the depth and intensity of each treatment, giving patients the results they want with the precise amount of laser energy they need — no more, no less.
Located in Guilford CT, Beth Collins MD is committed to providing sophisticated, high-quality aesthetic care. If you’d like more information about our practice or are interested in scheduling a consultation appointment, contact us today.
Halo™ is a customizable Hybrid Fractional Laser that gives patients beautiful results with minimal downtime. It combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in the same treatment zone, and can be adjusted to target only the deepest layers of the skin. The intensity of the laser can be adjusted so that the surface of the skin is left entirely unaffected, leading to quicker healing time and improved patient comfort.
Because it can be adjusted so easily, the Halo™ laser can be used to correct the appearance of a broad range of aesthetic issues, including:
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Poor texture
More aggressive Halo™ laser treatments can soften the appearance of fine lines and scars.
Depending on the intensity of your treatment, you may or may not receive a topical anesthetic. The sensation of the Halo™ handpiece rolling over the skin causes a warm, prickling sensation. The extent of downtime experienced depends upon the intensity of the treatment received.
The NanoLaserPeel™ is a great introduction into the world of Sciton® lasers. It’s especially well-suited to treat the signs of aging on the face, and can be completed in as little as five minutes.
This laser can be used to combat many signs of aging that crop up on the face, including fine lines, scars and sun damage.
The downtime of this treatment is the shortest of any of the laser skin resurfacing options we offer, requiring patients only 1-2 days of recovery.
The Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser, or TRL, is a cutting-edge YAG erbium laser skin resurfacing treatment. Traditional CO₂ lasers have a fixed rate of coagulation to ablation. The Contour TRL™ is different — this device allows Dr. Collins to precisely adjust the depth of both ablation and coagulation independently and to micron precision. It can reach depths between 50µm-200µm.
The Contour TRL™ can treat many of the signs of aging that affect the skin, including:
- Mild to deep wrinkles
- Acne, surgical and trauma related scars
- Pigmented lesions
- Peri-oral and peri-orbital deep rhytides
- Loose skin
- Actinic keratoses
- Poor skin tone or texture
A topical anesthetic is administered during all Contour TRL™ treatments, with the addition of local anesthetic for deeper treatments. Patients can expect 3-4 days of recovery time for shallow procedures, and 5-7 days for deeper ones. The skin will improve gradually over the 4-6 months following treatment.
