What is the Sciton Halo System?
The Sciton Halo Laser is the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser, meaning that the research manufacturers uniquely combined an ablative wavelength of therapeutic light energy with a non-ablative wavelength. This proprietary combination of wavelengths results in a synergistic benefit on the skin, which provides a significantly more impressive rejuvenation in skin resurfacing with less downtime.
What is the difference between ablative and non-ablative lasers?
Ablative technology uses light to effectively vaporize or remove damaged or aged tissue on the skin’s surface with a patented technology that reduces healing time. The non-ablative wavelength, which is added in the Halo, is light energy that doesn’t vaporize tissue, but heats the underlying tissues without damaging the epidermis or skin’s surface. By heating the deeper tissues, the skin repairs itself to increase skin firmness, reduce laxity, and it can also reduce pore size, pigmentation, and result in an overall improvement in skin texture.
What makes Halo unique?
The Halo system is innovative and has several other unique features. First, it involves an integrated cooling hand piece, which improves patient comfort during the treatment. The cooling hand piece is combined with a smoke evacuator that immediately removes any of the laser plume or airborne debris to a filter evacuator so patient or treating physician does not inhale the plume or debris. Additionally, there is a dynamic thermal optimizer (DTO) that automatically adjusts the power of each pulse of laser energy to the patient’s specific skin temperature. The patented technology was designed to improve the precision, consistency, as well as the safety, of the Halo Laser Treatment.
Another unique feature of the Sciton Halo System is called Optimal Navigation, which is a high-speed, motion-sensitive technology that tracks the handpiece movement. This feature helps improve the precision with every treatment specific to the patient’s skin type.
The most exciting benefit of the Halo system is the unique combination of the ablative and non-ablative light energy, reduced downtime, improved patient comfort, and significantly more dramatic rejuvenation in skin tone and texture.
Benefits of Halo
Patients can expect a glow to their complexion and an improvement in texture and firmness of the skin. After the Halo treatment, patients also see the benefits such as a reduction in fine lines, and acne scars, as well as overall sun damage and signs of aging.
Dr. Barone and the evolv professional staff are firm believers in conditioning the skin before laser treatments as results are often related to how well the skin is prepared. Our years of experience at evolv Medical Aesthetics has confirmed that patients who undergo an appropriate and individualized skin pre-treatment program will not only have better outcomes, but also heal more quickly and with more consistency and optimal results.
Who Should I See for the Halo Treatments?
Even with non-surgical treatments, it’s always important that patients do their homework and be careful when choosing aesthetic procedures and particularly the provider or trained professional. Studies have shown that the most important factors in aesthetic results are the training, experience, and qualifications of the provider. While any physician can legally perform a laser treatment or any cosmetic procedure, it must be emphasized that the Halo system is a powerful technology and consequently it is very important to seek out a certified, well-trained professional to avoid complications and maximize results.
