What are Sciton Lasers?
Sciton was established over 20 years ago in order to provide innovative lasers that were both easy to use for the provider while being as gentle as possible on the patient. Various types of invisible waves are used to deliver results, including:
- Pulsed light
- Infrared therapy
- Thermal energy
Some lasers treat surface-level imperfections and remove dead skin to revitalize the tone and brightness of your skin. Others target the deeper layers of your skin to boost collagen and elastin production and treat the root cause of imperfections.
What can I improve with laser treatments?
Dr. Schwartz often uses lasers for skin resurfacing and improving unwanted signs of aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, scarring, and uneven skin tone or texture. Our faces have delicate skin and often bear the brunt of our sun exposure or other lifestyle choices. Therefore, the face is typically the most common place to receive laser skin rejuvenation. You may also consider it on your neck, chest, arms, or virtually anywhere you have signs of aging.
What laser treatments are offered by Dr. Schwartz?
Our Westlake Village office offers many different types of laser treatments and peels, including:
Each laser has unique properties that make it ideal for treating specific imperfections or depths of skin. Our staff will help you further understand the options and choose the best method for your skin.
What can I expect during treatment?
Sensation and side effects will vary among lasers. Most lasers are not painful, but a topical numbing cream may be used to make you more comfortable. Treatments can last anywhere from 10 to 30 minutes depending on the specific laser, the size of your treatment areas, and other factors. Side effects are typically mild but may vary slightly based on the extent of your treatment and how your skin heals.
Why should I see Dr. Schwartz for laser treatments?

Will I need multiple Sciton Laser treatments to see results?
Some types of lasers may require multiple treatments to see results depending on your symptoms. Others may be powerful enough to provide optimal results after one treatment. We set your expectations during your consultation based on your unique skin and the laser that is right for you.
