Pacific Cosmetic Surgeons and Sciton Join Forces to Offer the Profile(TM) Expandable Laser Platform to Revolutionize the Laser-Cosmetic Skin Care Market


Los Angeles, Feb. 15, 2005 -- Sciton, Inc. produces and manufactures the Profile(TM), an innovative expandable multi-laser platform enabling physicians to offer a broad range of applications, ranging from MicroLaserPeel(TM), a weekend peel, to high-speed hair removal, vascular treatments, photo rejuvenation therapy, and many more.

Sciton’s goal is to provide physicians with one laser that will effectively and efficiently treat all skin types and hair colors, in a relatively painless manner. Chris Zachary M.D., FRCP, stated that “providing such pain-free procedures that can be performed quickly is essential.”

There is also an increased request for procedures that provide deeper and lasting results with minimal down-time. “While we have seen a resurgence in popularity for deeper resurfacing, Sciton’s MicroLaserPeel(TM), a light peel, has proven to be one of the most popular and effective in addressing those needs without the longer recovery time,” said Dale Koop, Ph.D., General Manager at Sciton. “Profile is a unique laser solution that allows for the treatment of vascular lesions, high-speed hair removal, photo rejuvenation therapy, as well as ablative resurfacing all in one package. As laser treatments become more accepted it is up to the industry to produce more versatile and economical solutions.”

In 1998, Sciton revolutionized the skin resurfacing market with the introduction of the Contour(TM) dual mode long pulse erbium laser that allows physicians to independently select the depth of ablation and coagulation. Then in 2000, Sciton introduced a high-speed hair removal laser incorporating a long pulse Nd:YAG called ThermaScan(TM). In 2003, Sciton introduced BBL(TM), a versatile broadband pulsed light laser, with interchangeable filters and capable of several photo rejuvenation treatments.

Pacific Cosmetic Surgeons in association with Pacific Specialists have selected the revolutionary technology Sciton has developed to offer complete skin rejuvenation to their patients. The technology offers solutions to color abnormalities (sun-skin damage spots, age spots), texture issues (rough skin with deep pores), blood vessel engorgement, and chronic acne with photodynamic therapy.

Pacific Cosmetic Surgeons, with its main office in Brentwood, California, and other locations in Malibu and Marina del Rey, California, was formed in 2002 with the association of four leading board certified experts in Cosmetic Surgery: Cadvan O. Griffiths MD, LLB; Chester F. Griffiths MD, FACS; Howard R. Krauss, MD; and Jason Van Tassel, MD. The endeavor is supported by the Research Foundation for Plastic Surgery. Along with teaching appointments in major universities in the Los Angeles area, they participate in various medical research activities.

Sciton, Inc., based in Palo Alto, CA, was founded in 1997 by physicist, founder and former chairman of Coherent, Inc., James L. Hobart, Ph.D. Sciton’s skilled and highly experienced team of laser physicists and engineers develop lasers for aesthetic and other medical procedures.
