Halo™ by Sciton®: The First Hybrid Fractional Laser in the World!

Maybe you haven’t heard, but this two-for-one fractional laser has hit the markets and our skin center in Pittsburgh, PA. If you’re looking for solutions to improve your features, this laser can give you all of them and then some. The hybrid fractional laser brings together both fractional ablative and nonablative skin resurfacing for the perfect combination. Avoid straight ablative lasers, and start seeing the positive and less invasive effects that this fractional laser can provide.


What are Fractional Lasers?


Fractional lasers are lasers that treat the area of focus in grids rather than at full blast. This way, only a portion of the skin is damaged, allowing for a faster healing process. The body will heal the damaged area, including the skin around it, which offers similar results to non-fractional lasers. It’s win-win!


Halo™ by Sciton® is a fractional laser that offers you the best of both worlds. It gives you the results of an ablative fractional laser, but with the non-ablative downtime. How it does this is by using two different wavelengths: 1470nm of non-ablative coagulation and 2940 nm Er. YAG wavelength for ablation.


Ablative Lasers


Ablative lasers are used to treat:


  • Sagging Skin
  • Extreme Sun Damage
  • Textured Moles
  • Acne Scarring
  • Deep Wrinkles
  • Crepey Skin (chicken-like skin on your neck and eyelids)


Non-Ablative Lasers


Non-Ablative lasers are used to treat:


  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Surface Scarring
  • Fine Lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Sun Damage  




Because these lasers focus on the under layers of the skin, rather than the surface, they have a lot less downtime than ablative. Using a wide spectrum of radio frequencies and non-coherent light, it not only helps to improve the appearance and texture of your skin, but also promotes the growth of collagen.  


Halo™ by Sciton® takes all of these positive results and puts them into just one hybrid fractional laser to help benefit you and your skin and give you the look you deserve. At Acqua Blu Medical Spa, we want to provide solutions that are as non-invasive as possible.
