Laser skin resurfacing can reduce acne scars, wrinkles, blemishes, pore size and melasma. It is also referred to as a laser peel. Laser skin resurfacing is a popular cosmetic procedure and it helps rejuvenate the skin, reduces sun damage and rends an overall glow to the complexion.
There are a variety of options and types of laser treatments and the latest technology has to offer is the Sciton Halo Laser. This is a unique laser as it offers a larger spectrum of range, unlike any other laser to date.
Sciton Halo Laser. Making the difference in Laser Skin Resurfacing
Laser Skin Resurfacing, unlike anything we have seen before, Sciton Halo offers the first Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL)
Halo by Sciton offers ablative results with non-ablative downtime. It is what everyone has been waiting for. A Fractional Laser that can offer results equal to that of the more aggressive Laser treatments, in one treatment with very low downtime and discomfort comparatively.
What is Hybrid Fractional Laser?
HFL or Hybrid Fractional Laser is a laser that delivers specific non-ablative and ablative wavelengths almost simultaneously. Halo by Sciton hybridizes them. Now that is revolutionary. This means that we can customize a very specific treatment plan, using a broad range of depth, lending the optimal results in Laser Skin Resurfacing.
Halo by Sciton delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths.
What are non-ablative wavelengths?
Non-ablative wavelengths are tunable and are responsible for targeting epidermal and dermal pigmented lesions. These vary in depth between 200-700 microns.
What are ablative wavelengths?
Ablative wavelengths range from 0-100 microns and target the intraepidermal tissue.
Why should we choose to deliver two wavelengths simultaneously and how is that an added benefit in Laser skin resurfacing?
Non-Ablative Fractional Lasers have a safe profile and work for a variety of skin types. They offer visible results with no downtime. The tradeoff is: sometimes a series of treatments are required.
Ablative Fractional Lasers are more aggressive, work for all skin types and the downtime with these treatments is longer. Fewer treatments are required.
Halo by Scion combines these two technologies and allows the provider to customize specific parameters ideal for each individual patient.
In other words this is the latest in Laser Skin Resurfacing a hybrid of the best of both worlds. Halo (HFL) falls in between the two options, and it is tunable and flexible.
Halo by Sciton offers four variables that re highly tunable in depth, and coverage.
Is Halo Laser Skin Resurfacing safe?
Halo by Sciton, by far the safest Laser Skin Resurfacing treatment on the market. It has a series of control settings that make it so safe, in some cases it can be administered by a trained aesthetician. We are able to control the extent of heat, what portion of the epidermis to ablate, what portion of the dermis to treat non-ablatively.
Halo has Dynamic Thermal Optimization (DTO), meaning it continually measures the temperature of the skin and automatically changes energy density and pulse width to ensure the laser is always tuned to your skin.
Halo has Optical Navigation built in, this technology makes it possible to continually measure the speed the hand held device is moving relative to the skin, adjusting the scanning speed to render an even treatment.
The hand piece has integrated cooling, which keeps the skin cool and comfortable. It also has the ability to measure debris during ablation.
Why should you opt of Halo Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Halo by Sciton provides a great option for Skin Resurfacing, between BBL and Deep Skin Resurfacing. If you are someone who cannot take a lot of time off work, this treatment is ideal for you. If you are looking for the results the more aggressive laser treatments have to offer, with the perfect micropeel.
Halo by Sciton provides the best of both worlds: ablative fractional results with non-ablative downtime. Results can be achieved with fewer treatments or more treatments depending on your goals, and desires.
Halo is safe on all skin types. Halo repairs visible signs of aging and addresses a broader spectrum of skin issues in one treatment.
