What is Halo?
Sciton's Halo laser is an exciting new laser technology which combines the benefits of 3 separate laser treatments into one. We now can address sun damage, surface texture, and fine lines and wrinkles in a combined treatment with a much easier and quicker healing experience than any other laser on the market today.
What Can the Halo Fractional Laser Treat?
The dual wavelengths unique to the Halo laser allow us to completely customize each patient’s treatment based on their skin’s unique needs and the desired downtime. Patients can expect to see improvements to:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation from sun damage
- Uneven skin tone and age spots
- Acne or chickenpox scars
What Makes the Halo Laser Different?
The Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass over the skin.
An ablative laser has long been considered one of the most effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin, the skin is forced to heal, increase collagen production and restructure, making way for tighter, rejuvenated skin. The downfall of an ablative laser is the recovery and downtime needed, often 1-2 weeks.
A non-ablative laser treatment is far less invasive with little-to-no downtime. By heating up the outer layers of skin but not removing them, a non-ablative laser treatment is popular for patients who need to return to their everyday lives right after treatment. The downfall here is a series of several treatments are needed to achieve desired results with a non-ablative procedure.
The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser focuses energy on the deeper collagen layer of skin leaving the surface of your skin largely in tact for a quicker healing time. It delivers the results of an ablative procedure with little-to-no downtime, like a non-ablative treatment. The best of both worlds!
