SCITON Laser Therapy

Now accepting consultations!

As we age, our skin shows signs of sun damage through blemishes, dilated pores, wrinkles, uneven texture and tone.  Many topical products can help to correct these problems, but cannot reach the deeper layers of skin.  Laser skin resurfacing at The Sendi Cosmetic Surgery Center can be tailored to your skin type, your desired treatments, and your desired down time.  These treatments can be customized to achieve improved texture, tone, and overall quality of your skin. 

 To determine which treatment is right for you, find your skin condition on the below list, and read about each specific treatment below.  Keep in mind, for optimal treatment, combination procedures will enhance your outcome!  We invite you to come into our office for a consultation with Dr.  Susan Buenaventura or Physician Assistant Anne Littman.



Halo™, The World’s First Hybrid Fractional Laser; Ablative Results with Non-Ablative Downtime

Mechanism of Action:      

We are pleased to offer the latest technology in the form of Sciton's Halo™ hybrid fractional laser system.  It is unlike any other technology on the market to treat UV damage with less down time. We can precisely dial in the exact treatment patients want within the desired downtime by using this laser's unique ability to separate treatments for the epidermis, which heals quickly, and dermis, which remodels more slowly over time.  The benefits of a Halo™ treatment include improvement in both epidermal and dermal pigmentation, as well as tone and texture of the skin. 

Candidates: All Skin Types, face, neck and body

Downtime: 2-3  days, may return to daily activities the day after treatment

BBL™- Broad Band Light is unmatched light therapy for a multitude of aesthetic and vascular conditions.

Mechanism of Action:      

BBL BroadBand Light technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent phototherapy results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength or filter, the physician will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas coagulates tissue to variable depth. This process helps restore the skin to its natural state. In addition, the photothermal energy targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions.

Candidates: Skin type 1-4

Downtime: NONE!

Treats: *BBL is FDA cleared for, but not limited to:

Benign pigmented lesions such as sun spots, freckles, etc.

Superficial skin lesions

Vascular Lesions, such as cherry angiomas, telangiectasias, bruises, and rosacea

Hair reduction (Learn more at ForeverBareBBL)

Cystic acne

SkinTyte II - effective, fast, and the most economical light energy device for improving skin firmness.

Mechanism of Action:

SkinTyte utilizes infrared energy to deeply heat soft tissue while protecting the entire treated area with sapphire contact cooling. Targeted heating causes soft tissue coagulation and collagen contraction. This process initiates the body’s natural healing process, resulting in a firmer, more youthful skin appearance. The full effect of skin firming treatments can be seen over several subsequent months. For best results, subsequent treatments recommended.

Candidates: All skin types

Downtime: NONE!


Skin laxity of the face, neck, abdomen and body
