HALO LASER SKIN TREATMENT –
HYBRID FRACTIONAL LASER
Halo™ is the world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL), which delivers non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone, giving patients results they love without the discomfort or downtime they expect. Easy to use and virtually painless, Halo laser skin treatment sets the standard for the future of laser resurfacing by providing a safe and powerful long-term hybrid solution.
Long term sun exposure, active lifestyle and the wear and tear of everyday living results in visible signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, scars and laxity. A fractional HALO laser skin treatment, whether ablative or coagulative, allows the epidermis to heal quickly as long as the dermis remains intact. Ablative fractional resurfacing is a well-established treatment that vaporizes aged tissue with less thermal injury, with mild to moderate levels of morbidity and downtime.
Conversely, non-ablative fractional resurfacing causes thermal injury and tissue coagulation with lower levels of morbidity. The HALO hybrid fractional laser combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths delivered to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize clinical results and minimize downtimes. The HALO laser skin treatment is safe and effective, while providing an enhanced patient experience.
Halo laser skin treatment provides unique benefits including:
- Ability to treat pores using ablative and non-ablative wavelengths
- Results in just 1-2 treatments vs. 3-5 traditional resurfacing treatments*
- More comfortable than traditional fractional resurfacing
- Faster healing time
