Laser & Light Skin Treatment

Professional laser energy treatments are some of the most effective non-surgical options available. Some treatments are completely non-invasive (non-ablative), while deeper treatments that resurface the skin (ablative) leave underlying tissue undamaged. Because each handpiece’s settings are easily customized, your skin treatment provides precisely the results you are looking for!

Aesthetic Laser Treatment Benefits

Who Can Benefit Most from Aesthetic Laser Treatment?

Joule X for Aging Skin

Aesthetic lasers target signs of aging. Laser skin treatment can be tailored to provide comprehensive facial rejuvenation by addressing wrinkles, redness, skin pigmentation issues, and skin texture changes. 

Joule X for Blemished and Blemish-Prone Skin

While some patients wish to “turn back the clock” on their skin, others prefer to improve blemishes and scars. The Joule X handles active acne, acne scarring, or scars from injury or surgery. And, if you don’t have any major skin issues, this procedure is excellent to “fine tune” areas for simple skin maintenance!

Joule X for Other Skin Issues

The versatility of aesthetic laser technology means it can be used in many different ways, such as laser hair removal and dermatological procedures like wart removal and antifungal treatment.

Treated Conditions

Using specialized handpieces, each with its own specific uses, Sciton Joule X can address a broad range of skin concerns, including the following.

  • Uneven Tone
  • Wrinkles
  • Textured Skin
  • Skin Discoloration
  • Age Spots
  • Dullness
  • Acne

Powerful Technology: Beautiful Results

Sciton Joule X offers three laser and light-based treatment modalities. 

  • Broadband Light
  • 2940 nm Er:YAG Laser
  • 1060 nm Nd:YAG Laser

Broadband Light

Broadband light (BBL) is a non-ablative treatment modality, meaning the surface of the skin remains undamaged as the light energy penetrates to rejuvenate and reconfigure deeper layers. Just like the light source, the range of skin conditions BBL technology can improve is broad! It is best used to improve skin tone and smooth surface imperfections.

Fractional Erbium:YAG Laser

The Er:YAG laser is particularly effective in skin resurfacing treatments. Er:YAG stands for Erbium-doped Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet, the materials used to create the laser beam. This laser wavelength targets water. This means the laser energy is easily absorbed by water in the skin, vaporizing the epidermis and promoting tissue remodeling. It also reduces heat damage, so surrounding tissues are left unaffected. (1)

Fractional Nd:YAG Laser

Neodymium Yttrium-Aluminum-Garnet, or Nd:YAG for short, is a near-infrared laser system. It permeates into the deepest layers of the skin. Nd:YAG treatments are best suited for vascular tissues like spider veins, telangiectasias (small vein malformations) and other skin imperfections that cause redness and surface imperfections.

Choosing the Treatment that is Right for You

Treatment protocols that target skin texture and tone can help you look your best! The following modules are available on the Sciton Joule X platform.


Halo is a hybrid fractional laser for non-ablative and ablative use, which uses two lasers at the same time. Unlike most other lasers, this Er:YAG modality is suitable for all skin types (Fitzpatrick I-VI).  Dynamic Thermal Optimization (DTO) technology ensures your safety and comfort, capping the upper limits of treatment temperature. Use Halo treatment to improve uneven, bumpy skin, target patches of uneven tone, fight blemishes, and brighten dull skin

Contour TRL

Contour TRL provides custom-designed, advanced skin resurfacing to help you target the deepest wrinkles and problem areas of skin, with or without thermal coagulation. Use this laser treatment for superficial maintenance peels, or deeper “full field” skin remodeling. Achieve finer, pinpoint-accurate results with one of two single spot handpieces.


The ProFractional handpiece gives you the power of ablative laser treatment without the extended downtime. It tightens and refreshes skin, helping you look more youthful and radiant. Focus treatment on new or old acne scarring, pitted scars, and dark spots to achieve clearer skin after just one session. ProFractional therapy can also be used for wrinkle reduction and general skin maintenance.


BBL HERO uses the power of broadband light to improve skin quality, even out pigmentation, treat small vein breakages and redness, and remove hair! High-intensity bursts of non-laser light are a great alternative to ablative lasers, especially for people with darker complexions. (2) Hero stands for High Energy Rapid Output, and that’s exactly what our patients get! What’s more, BBL HERO treatments are comfortable and fast, providing a speedy, hassle-free recovery.

Forever Clear BBL

Acne isn’t just an issue for teenagers and young adults! Blackheads, whiteheads, and deeper blemishes can cause frustration, discomfort, and embarrassment at the worst of times, especially if you have a special event fast approaching. Relegate your acne troubles to the past with Forever Clear BBL phototherapy. Forever Clear identifies and destroys acne-causing bacteria using Smart Filters. Patients also get the luxury of CoolComfort, an advanced cooling system that prevents skin overheating.

SkinTyte BBL

SkinTyte BBL is exactly what it sounds like! It’s an effective laser treatment modality that uses BBL phototherapy technology to tighten skin and enhance your facial rejuvenation. Using multiple passes, your provider can provide intensive protocols for aging and pigmented skin.

Veins & Redness

Have you ever experienced facial redness with no apparent cause? Do you frequently experience “broken blood vessels” in the cheeks and nose? Or have you seen small, purple-ish leg veins slowly getting more noticeable? Reduce the appearance of vascular irregularities with one of three treatments on the Sciton Joule X platform.

  • BBL Vascular Phototherapy – Suitable for Fitzpatrick skin types I-V. Treats: rosacea, pigmented lesions, facial bruising, facial blood vessels, leg veins.
  • ClearSilk – Suitable for Fitzpatrick skin types I-VI, including very dark skin. Treats: vascular microvessels, diffuse redness, rosacea.
  • Clear V – Addresses treatment-resistant spider veins, reticular veins, and vascular malformations.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal with Forever Bare BBL means you can step out in confidence, free from the self-consciousness of excess body hair. Moreover, laser treatment is a more permanent solution to coarser, darker hair than waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams. The most common patient requests for laser hair removal include the following areas.

  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Bikini Line
  • Legs
  • Chest
  • Upper Lip
  • Facial “Peach Fuzz”
  • Abdomen

Endless Treatment Combinations

The Sciton Joule X platform has revolutionized aesthetic laser treatment. So many aesthetic skin conditions can be addressed with stand-alone treatments. But the most comprehensive results are achieved with a multi-pronged approach over several sessions. Here are some examples of how Joule X combination treatments outshine the competition and get you the results you desire.

  • Aging skin with diffuse redness: Forever Young + ClearSilk  combination treatment
  • Dark spots, and poor skin quality: HALO + BBL
  • Pitted acne scars with skin laxity and dull tone: Contour TRL + ProFractional + SkinTyte combination treatment
  • Larger facial birthmarks and rough texture: ClearV + BBL combination treatment
