Sciton Unveils the JOULE Aesthetic Laser Platform for Physicians Battling the Economic Squeeze

OptiPlex Technology Combines Capabilities of Multiple Lasers in One Future-Proof Platform

PALO ALTO, Calif., Feb. 9 /PRNewswire/ -- Sciton, Inc. announces the launch of the JOULE Aesthetic Laser Platform. By combining multiple, distinctive laser technologies into a single, slender system, JOULE offers aesthetic practitioners a vastly expanded range of procedures, opens a simple path to future technologies and procedures as they become available, and provides revenue stimulus for the current economic environment that will easily translate to solid long term practice-building and growth.

OptiPlexing Wavelengths and Delivery Modes for Expanded Procedure Options

With JOULE, Sciton offers the optimal combination of multiple laser wavelengths delivered through any of JOULE's three delivery modes--arm, fiber, or broadband light (BBL)--enabling aesthetic physicians to offer the widest variety of procedures available. A single platform can provide today's most requested procedures, laser-assisted lipolysis and deep and fractional skin resurfacing, as well as hair removal and a wide range of vascular treatments. Sciton's scientists call this technology OptiPlex(TM): the optimal multiplexing of optical technologies.

"The optiplexed JOULE has the potential to change the entire landscape of an aesthetic practice," says Dr. Jason Pozner, plastic surgeon and medical director of Sanctuary Plastic Surgery and co-owner of Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center in Florida. "Combining laser lipolysis and both fractional and full skin resurfacing in a single platform makes it possible for me to offer the most popular treatments more conveniently. The benefit to a growing aesthetic practice is significant. They can expand their practice with a single laser. It is an ideal system for aesthetic surgeons with an on-site operating facility as well as those with an office treatment room. It would take multiple lasers to do what JOULE does. It's a game-changer."

Procedure-Specific and Practice-Expanding Treatment Modules

JOULE offers unprecedented versatility with its comprehensive selection of modules and the ability to add future Sciton modules for cosmetic procedures. In addition to any combination of three delivery modes, the base laser system has four laser bays as well as a pulsed light bay. A practice can begin with one module, and grow into many as the practice grows, or, it can be fully built-out from the very beginning to enable the widest range of treatment capabilities for expansive revenue opportunity for the aesthetic practice. The platform is "future-proof" as modules yet to be invented will be designed to be fully functional on the JOULE Aesthetic Laser Platform.

"The optiplexed JOULE platform offers great economics in two important ways," states Lars Isaacson, Vice President of Sales at Sciton. "You can pick the most profitable procedures for your practice today, adding modules for new capabilities in the future at a far lower cost. And here's an even more immediate economic boost: contrary to industry trends, there are no hidden disposable costs, which can be $400 per tip, or charges for handpieces that automatically disable themselves after a limited number of pulses."

Highest Value, Lowest-Per-Procedure Cost

In addition to cost-optimization through more capability in a single aesthetic platform, Sciton physicians achieve the lowest-per-procedure cost because Sciton does not charge for disposables, nor does it place an unnecessary "marketing" limitation on the use of disposables. Sciton enables physicians to use open source fibers on its lasers, providing a competitive cost advantage to its customers. All Sciton systems offer unlimited pulses within a 3 year warranty or during service contracts, a standard unmatched in the industry.

"With this challenging economy, physicians benefit from a combined fractional resurfacing and laser lipolysis platform that affords both cost efficiency and the cutting edge technology that our patients seek," commented Dr. Michael Kaminer, a dermatologic surgeon and partner at SkinCare Physicians in Chestnut Hill, MA. "Combining these two procedures in a single system is a terrific advantage, and having no disposable expense is an added bonus. Sciton has used its unmatched laser science expertise to offer superior clinical outcomes and address the economic challenges that physicians face."
