When we’re young, our skin is bright and firm, with an even skin tone and a natural vibrancy. However, when we age, our skin begins gradually to lose firmness and even coloration, due to natural aging, environmental factors and lifestyle.

Sciton® MicroLaserPeel™?

The MicroLaserPeel™ uses the Sciton® laser to precisely remove the very thin outermost layer of the skin. This accuracy in the depth of the laser setting allows Dr. Vanek to achieve the best results for you with the least amount of downtime and little discomfort. The procedure can be performed in our office and will improve your skin’s texture, reduce wrinkles and improve evenness of skin tone.

The MicroLaserPeel™ may be used for facial rejuvenation and to treat:

Fine lines and mild wrinkles

Acne, Hypertrophic and Post-traumatic scars

Enlarged pores



Sun spots, age spots, brown spots

Freckles and Lentigines

Excellent improvement can be seen after even a single treatment, though Dr. Vanek may recommend a series of two to four treatments spaced four to six weeks apart for optimal outcome.

What to Expect

You will notice that your skin has a “frosty” appearance immediately after your first treatment, which is the dehydrated upper layer of skin that will flake and peel away within a few days. You should feel comfortable enough to return to work after three to four days and will see the resulting improvement in texture and color tone at the same time.

Sciton® MicroLaserPeel™?

BBL™ BroadBand Light is a new approach to phototherapy that helps treat skin conditions that are a result of aging, sun damage and active life-styles. The BBL™ delivers light energy that gently heats the upper layers of skin which stimulates cells to produce new collagen, thus helping restore your skin to the younger-looking, smoother tones you desire. The photothermal energy will also get rid of those fine blood vessels that cause unwanted redness as well as reduce excess melanin which can produce pigmented lesions.

BBL™ may be used to precisely treat:

Sun spots, age spots, brown spots


Facial spider veins


Port-wine stains


Red, inflamed scars

Cherry angioma




What to Expect with BBL™ BroadBand Light Treatments

BBL™ BroadBand Light can be used to treat skin on all areas of your body. The number of treatments will vary depending on how many areas are involved. Our staff and Dr. Vanek will determine a treatment plan for you based on your individual needs. The procedure itself is gentle, non-invasive, safe and there is usually no need for a topical anesthetic. Though there is no downtime associated with this procedure, you will need to avoid exposure to direct sunlight until your skin has fully healed. Fine lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade, leaving your treated skin smoother and more youthful and vibrant.

Sciton® Profractional™

One of the most popular treatments today, fractional resurfacing with the Sciton® ProFractional™ laser improves a wide range of specific skin conditions as well as the overall appearance of your skin. This in-office procedure that Dr. Vanek likens to “aerating the lawn,” uses a tiny laser beam to penetrate deeply into thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin, so only a “fraction” of your skin needs to be directly exposed to the laser energy. The areas of untreated skin then promote the body’s natural wound healing process, and the treated areas stimulate new collagen production, which adds firmness and resilience. The ProFractional™ laser may be used for facial rejuvenation and to treat:

Wrinkles and fine lines

Acne,Hypertrophic and Post-traumatic scars

Enlarged pores

Sun spots, age spots, brown spots

Freckles and lentigines


What to Expect

Your skin’s appearance will be smoother and tighter after just one treatment, though more are recommended for the best results. Dr. Vanek will give instruction on specific post-treatment care to protect your skin and reduce swelling. Healing usually occurs within a few days, and you should feel comfortable enough to return to work a day or two after treatment. The collagen remodeling that occurs during the months following your ProFractional™ treatment will reveal the lasting benefit of rejuvenated, tighter-looking skin.

Sciton® SkinTyte™

The SkinTyte™ treatment uses pulsed light technology to heat your skin’s deepest layers of collagen which causes it to contract and then produce a new collagen foundation. The result for you is firmer, more youthful-looking skin provided quickly and comfortably with no downtime.

SkinTyte™ can be used to treat:

Loose skin

Sagging skin

Erythema and flushed skin

This treatment is ideal for patients who desire moderate, noticeable skin tone improvement without having to undergo surgery. SkinTyte™ uses a powerful cooling system that maintains the outer surface of your skin at a safe and comfortable temperature while the deeper layers are being treated. There is usually no need for topical anesthetic and the whole procedure typically takes about 30 minutes for face and neck. Dr. Vanek usually recommends a series of five or six weekly SkinTyte™ treatments for optimum results. Since the SkinTyte™ procedure involves the rebuilding of your skin’s collagen, you will begin to see results during the series and full results at about three months after completion which may last years. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation with Dr. Vanek to see if skin rejuvenation using the Sciton laser is right for you.
