Sciton Announces Allura, A Single-Session, Rapid Results Procedure for Submental Contouring

PALO ALTO, Calif, November 29, 2018 — Sciton®, a leading manufacturer of high-quality laser and light systems in the aesthetic and medical market, is announcing the release of ALLURATM, a micro-invasive laser module for rapid fat reduction and skin contraction1 in the submental, neck and chin area.

“ALLURA Neck is all about rapid contour results with a single, office-based treatment”, says Marc Salzman MD, a Plastic Surgeon in Louisville, KY. “It fits perfectly into my practice, next to non-invasive modalities like Coolsculpting Mini and Kybella. These procedures have the limitations of taking several months and sessions to attain modest results. With ALLURA Neck, the outcomes are profound within two weeks, 100% of the time. In addition, it is a high ROI procedure.”

“We’ve found that ALLURA captures an attractive, distinct patient profile,” remarks Aaron Burton, Chief Operating Officer of Sciton. “Many patients want fast visible results in a one-and-done treatment. To provide this option, our customers have urged us to revitalise a proven procedure with new simplified features, protocols and branding. We’ve done that with ALLURA and believe it’s a great addition to our Joule platform.”

“I leverage my patient base and they love that I have alternatives for them,” states Jared Mallalieu DO, a Cosmetic Surgeon in Severna Park, MD. “In consultations, and also for new patients, they often have wrong assumptions and incomplete understanding. Many opt for ALLURA when they got the whole picture with all major Pros & Cons, including results vs. time and cost.”

ALLURA Neck can easily be added to the Sciton JOULE platform, making it very affordable. The JOULE platform is the world’s only expandable platform to offer an unprecedented array of laser and light wavelengths through any of its distinct delivery modes: arm, fiber and BroadBand Light.
