Sciton’s Halo at AboutSkin Dermatology

HALO Laser Skin Resurfacing

HALO laser skin resurfacing is a cutting edge technology offering patients impressive results with acceptable downtime. In the past using traditional resurfacing methods, patients looking to rejuvenate and resurface their skin have experienced pigment loss and prolonged healing time. With the introduction of HALO, the risks of scarring and extensive recovery time have been minimized.

Sciton introduced HALO to the dermatology industry as the first hybrid fractional laser. The company has specialized in manufacturing the latest in light and laser medical aesthetic solutions since 1997. Their hybrid fractional laser technology “delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone, giving patients the results they love without the discomfort or downtime they expect.”

The laser accomplishes this by delivering tunable wavelengths, known as Dynamic Thermal Optimization, to the treatment site in a single pass. At the same time, the procedure is precisely targeted and safe while delivering two separate treatments in a single treatment setting. The administrator is able to customize the treatment of the patient with three coverage-base treatment levels. HALO’s intelligent energy delivery, then determines the required amount of energy to successfully complete the treatment. The balanced application and pinpoint accuracy allows for surface and deep penetration providing improvements in tone and texture.

HALO is not an incremental product. It is the culmination of an extensive 4 year investigation involving new understanding of laser tissue physics combined with state-of-the-art implementation of all new technology,”said Dan Negus, President of Sciton. “This product has some very exciting innovations that will excite a lot of users. Launching HALO further demonstrates Sciton’s long commitment to excellence and innovation across all types of resurfacing.”

Dr. Contreras, from AboutSkin Dermatology, is extremely excited about this new technology. He considers HALO, “an ideal choice for any patient looking for significant results but cannot afford to take more than a few days off for recovery.”

Halo’s benefits compared to traditional treatment options are:

  • The system will treat pigmentary issues (sun damage), pores, and fine lines and wrinkles.
  • It reduces recovery time and the number of prescribed treatments.
  • It is safe, easy, and requires less time than traditional resurfacing.
  • It is more comfortable than traditional resurfacing and well tolerated without narcotic pain medications.
