Due to high maintenance costs, the dermatologist that my practitioner works for is selling the Sction 1064 Nd:YAG laser. All of the techs are upset about this. Supposedly, the maintenance contract on this $300,000 machine is $15K per year. There have been a few breakdowns, one happened when I was being treated, which was a leak in the cooling part of the handpiece.
The Coolglide seems to be a similar laser to the Sciton. I was wondering how its maintenance costs compared to the Sciton.
I had great results with the Coolglide on my beard and finished my arms with it too. I ran out of time during my last Aurora session so I thought I would finish up on my arms with the Sciton. I will miss the Sciton, especially the large area scanner which helps shorten the treatment time.
Does the Coolglide have a scanner? What spot sizes are available?
Thanks in advance.
