Industry-Leading Lasers Deliver Results that Matter for Over Two Decades


PALO ALTO, CA – March 27, 2017 — Sciton®, a leading manufacturer of high-quality laser and light systems in the medical market, is celebrating twenty years of innovation. Over the last two decades, Sciton has established a well-earned reputation for creating cutting-edge skin technology with a focus on achieving results that matter.

Co-founded by Jim Hobart, Ph.D., and Dan Negus, Ph.D. in 1997, Sciton’s legacy centers around their passion for skin and advancing best-in-class facial revitalization technologies. What sets Sciton apart is its science-driven, customer-centric philosophy that put customers’ needs first. And it shows. Sciton now operates in more than 45 countries and has launched 26 major innovations.

Sciton’s mission from early on has been to provide physicians with the best possible tools to address aging and other skin concerns while answering patient needs with a results-oriented and science-based approach.

Of Sciton’s guiding principle, Rick Mendez, Vice President of Global Marketing, says, “Like Apple, HP, and other iconic Silicon Valley brands, Sciton has stayed true to its original brand promise for two decades and counting. Everything we do is based on the motto ‘Because Results Matter’.”

“We believe that we build products that physicians will buy and feel good about,” says Dr. Hobart. “Our products are reputable and long-lasting, and deliver the results that patients deserve and want and that they are willing to pay for.”

The brand launched its high-quality Erbium resurfacing platform in 1998. What followed was a steady stream of industry-leading advancements including Broadband Light (BBL™) in 2005, ProFractional (the first ablative fractional laser) in 2007, the signature JOULE™ platform in 2009 (the first platform capable of offering arm, fiber and light-based delivery), and HALO™, the world’s first hybrid laser in 2014. Most recently, Sciton expanded beyond facial rejuvenation technology, creating the Women’s Health Group (WHG) and launching the diVa™ hybrid laser technology for vaginal revitalization.

Widely recognized by physicians as the gold-standard in laser platforms, Sciton’s JOULE system is highly versatile, allowing users to treat everything from acne and vascular conditions, to pigmented lesions, to hair removal, and now, vaginal tissue, with just one device. The highly customizable applications deliver more precise treatments with less downtime and discomfort than traditional lasers.

Unlike many publicly-traded companies in this space, Sciton will always make decisions based on what’s good for Main Street as opposed to what’s good for Wall Street. “Our handbook says ‘do the right thing,’ and that’s the basis for what every employee at Sciton does,” says Dr. Negus.

Sciton will be celebrating its twentieth anniversary at ASLMS April 5-9, 2017 in San Diego, CA. Stop by booth #409 to discover the industry’s most sophisticated technologies for non-invasive facial and feminine rejuvenation. We are hosting our Strategic Advisory Board and then Friday evening, join Sciton for drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and networking at The Rooftop by STK, hosted by Dr. Chris Robb and Dr. Chad Deal. RSVP here.
