Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser simultaneously delivering non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass over the skin.
Ablative lasers are very effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. Used for removing outer layers of damaged skin and forcing healing and increased collagen productio.
However ablative lasers usually require 1-2 weeks of downtime and recovery.
Non-ablative laser procedures are less invasive but with less efficacy requiring more treatments for desired results.
The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser applies energy to deep layers of the skin without excessive damage to the skin surface.
The result - tighter, rejuvenated skin with quicker healing time and results par to those from an ablative device without the downtime.
