Definition - What does Halo Laser mean?
Τhe Sciton® Halo is a hybrid fractional laser that uses both 1470 nm and 2940 nm wavelengths. The non-ablative 1470 nm wavelength penetrates 200-700 microns into the skin and is perfect for improving the appearance of pigmented lesions, skin texture, and pore size. The ablative 2940 nm laser penetrates up to 100 microns and offers reduced recovery time and improved skin tone.
TheConsultation explains Halo Laser
The Halo laser is suitable for all skin types and is ideal for the treatment of pigmentation issues, uneven skin tone, large pores, superficial scars, like acne or chicken pox scars, fine lines, and wrinkles. Prior to the treatment, an anesthetic topical cream is applied in order to eliminate any discomfort. The session lasts up to an hour and the downtime is minimal. Right after treatment and for a few hours, the skin looks like sunburned. Over the next few days, the damaged surface skin is shed, whereas the deep skin layers continue their regeneration through the body's natural healing process. The first visible results in skin tone and texture are noticed in the first few days but there's an ongoing improvement for up to six months.
