Sciton introduced the Halo laser, the world's first hybrid fractional laser.
The world's first hybrid fractional laser that delivers results like a fractional ablative laser with a recovery time like non-ablative lasers.
Great news for patients who expect the maximum possible results from laser rejuvenation with the minimum possible rehabilitation period. Sciton, a leading manufacturer of high quality lasers and broadband light systems for aesthetic medicine, has unveiled Halo, the world's first and only hybrid fractional laser with a tunable non-ablative and ablative wavelength in a single procedure to maximize results and shorten recovery time. The Halo laser will go on sale in the second half of this year. “Halo is not just the next product in the line. It is the culmination of 4 years of intense research, new insights into the physics of laser tissue interactions that have been implemented with the introduction of all the latest laser technology, ”says DanNegus, President of Sciton. “This laser has some very interesting innovations that will be appreciated by specialists. The advent of the Halo laser once again demonstrates Sciton's leadership in laser peeling technology and all types of laser resurfacing.”
The Halo laser uses both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in the same microscopic treatment area: 1470 nm for tissue coagulation and 2940 nm for tissue ablation. A beam with a wavelength of 1470 nm can penetrate to a depth of 100 to 700 microns, coagulating the epidermis and dermis, where photodamage is observed. The 2940 nm wavelength penetrates to a depth of 0 to 100 microns, causing tissue ablation within the epidermis. This gives Halo the unique ability to separately target the epidermis, which regenerates quickly, and the dermis, which regenerates over a longer period. The technician can select one of three basic levels of parameters and Halo will calculate the amount of energy required for an effective and safe procedure. Smart energy distribution is combined with Dynamic Temperature Optimization, which ensures high precision and uniformity of the procedure. The advantage of Halo treatments is the simultaneous effect on epidermal and dermal hyperpigmentation, skin tone and texture.
Sciton's Halo laser is the first laser innovation in a decade. Hybrid fractional lasers are the next logical step in the evolution of fractional laser skin rejuvenation technologies. With the Halo laser, I can achieve the results that one would expect from ablative fractional lasers, but still get the recovery time seen with non-ablative fractional rejuvenation. It is indeed the best technology available for ablative and non-ablative fractional lasers.

In Ukraine, Halo lasers will be offered on JOULE™ platforms, which allow connecting various modules for a wide range of procedures.
