At AYA™ Medical Spa we make it a priority to keep abreast of the latest technology and most effective treatments and techniques so that we can give our patients the widest possible array of options for fulfilling their cosmetic goals. We will soon be adding a new treatment to our menu of non-surgical procedures, the world’s first and only tunable hybrid fractional laser, Halo™ by Sciton®.
The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser system from Sciton® works by combining two different types of treatments in one. Until now, laser skin resurfacing treatments, like the Sciton® Broadband™ light and Erbium lasers, provided either ablative or non-ablative effects. While ablative lasers work on the surface, removing the outermost layers of dead and damaged skin to address imperfections like scars, keratosis, sun damage or uneven pigmentation. Higher frequency, non-ablative lasers are able to pass through the skin’s upper layers harmlessly and heat the deeper tissues, stimulating collagen growth and tightening the underlying skin from within. While the results achieved with ablative lasers are generally considered more dramatic, non-ablative lasers naturally engage the skin’s own healing processes and so can provide subtle lifting and firming of skin texture with significantly less recovery time. The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser system delivers high and low frequencies to the same precision location at the same time, allowing patients to achieve the impressive results of an ablative laser while enjoying the quicker recovery times that a non-ablative treatment provides.
Like the Sciton® dual laser system, the Halo™ system is safe for use on most skin types (call us for details), tones, and ages and is fully adjustable, allowing it to be customized to each patient’s specific requirements. It incorporates “dynamic thermal optimization” technology that measures the temperature of the skin during treatment and automatically adjusts to ensure that the laser is always tuned to the patient’s specifications and even automatically compensates for changes in the scanning speed of the handpiece to guarantee even treatment.
If you would like to learn more, we will be introducing the Halo™ treatment at our upcoming event at our Phipps Plaza location on Thursday, September 4th, 2014. More details to come!
