Sciton Celebrates 15 Years of Quality, Innovation and Exceptional Results in the Aesthetic Laser and Light Arena

PALO ALTO, Calif. — March 15, 2012 – This month, Sciton celebrates its 15th Anniversary as an innovator of aesthetic laser and light solutions. Over the past 15 years the company has focused on inventing a steady stream of cutting-edge products, many of which are considered best-in-class.

Sciton was founded in 1997 by Jim Hobart, CEO (who was also a founder of Coherent, Inc. in 1966), Dan Negus, President, and others. Reflecting on what Sciton has accomplished over the past 15 years, Jim and Dan cited that Sciton’s formula for success is simple…“create a culture where doing the right thing for our customers and employees is critical. With this formula, we have cultivated long-lasting relationships with both our customers and staff.”

The company has established itself as the preferred aesthetic laser and light solution for many reputable physicians. Recently, the company was ranked #1 in efficacy and service by Medical Spa MD’s Physician Report. Sciton has earned its reputation by listening, asking for feedback and applying that feedback to develop solutions that address the concerns of the aesthetic laser and light market.

As a company, Sciton is focused on growing and cultivating its global brand. Worldwide demand for Sciton solutions has dramatically increased over the past 15 years. To meet the demand, Sciton now sells directly in the US, Japan and Canada, and has 45 distributors in 75 countries around the world. International expansion allows the company to form partnerships with key global physician thought leaders that will help Sciton provide new and innovative solutions to the marketplace for the next 15 years and beyond.
