What is Halo?
Halo is the world’s first and only Hybrid Fractional Laser that delivers a non-ablative and an ablative wavelength to the same microscopic treatment zone. Combining these two wavelengths creates a strong synergistic effect, resulting in ablative results with non-ablative downtime.
Halo provides unique benefits including:
- Ability to treat pigmentary issues, wrinkles and pores
- Less painful than traditional fractional resurfacing
- Results in just 1-2 treatments
- Faster healing time
Non-Ablative 1470 nm
The non-ablative wavelength of 1470 nm is tunable from 200 to 700 microns, the optimal depth for treating the epidermis and papillary dermis. This wavelength is ideal for treating epidermal and dermal elastosis, including pigment irregularities, texture, and pore size.
Ablative 2940 nm
The 2940 nm Er:YAG laser provides pur ablation with no bulk heating, tunable from 20 to 100 microns. This superficial ablation decreases healing time through faster clearance of Microscopic Epidermal Necrotic Debris (MENDs) and provides improved results due to an enhanced wound healing response from small ablative injuries.
What Makes Halo Unique?
The Halo handpiece includes integrated air cooling and smoke evacuation. The integrated cooling provides cold air through the Halo Vortex Adapter, across the treatment zone and is evacuated out of the opposite side of the adapter. Integrated cooling provides patient comfort while smoke evacuation provides safety for the patient and operator. The integrated design makes it easy for treatments to be performed by one person.
Dynamic Thermal Optimization (DTO) is built into Halo to auto- matically adjust the power of each individual 1470 nm pulse based on the temperature of the patient’s skin. This feature makes Halo the most precise, safe, and consistent non-ablative technology on the market.
The high-speed optical navigation system on the Halo handpiece captures the motion of the handpiece hundreds of times every second to track the speed of the handpiece with extreme precision. Combining the optical navigation with sophisticated software to map the patient’s skin, the safety of the treatment increases and creates a consistent treatment from beginning to end.
Halo provides an unmatched patient experience in the world of laser resurfacing. The combination of low downtime, amazing results, and an easy, comfortable treatment makes for extremely happy patients.
