INTRODUCTIONS 22 MAY/JUNE 2014 | Med Esthetics 10 11 12 13 [ 10 ] TWO-IN-ONE FRACTIONAL RESURFACING The Halo hybrid fractional laser from Sciton allows users to move between nonablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass. Wavelengths include 1470nm for coagulation and 2940nm for ablation. The 1470nm wavelength delivers between 100µ and 700µ of coagulation to the epidermis and dermis. The 2940nm wavelength delivers from 0µ to 100µ of ablation to the epidermis. The operator can choose one of three coverage-based treatment levels, and the laser will calculate the exact amount of energy necessary to complete an effective treatment. "Halo changes the paradigm," says clinical investigator Chris Robb, MD, PhD. "The unique dual wavelengths deliver an unprecedented ability to customize treatments for each individual. Every patient has different needs in terms of sun damage and downtime. With Halo, I can fi nally have the best of both nonablative and ablative wavelengths. I can precisely dial in the exact treatment for amazing results within the desired downtime."
