Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing
What is Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is Laser Skin Resurfacing that employs a combination of wavelengths to deliver results close to a traditional Laser Skin Resurfacing minus the potential risks and side effects. Fractional Lasers deliver both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths selectively. Examples of such branded devices include and are not limited to: Halo by Sciton, Fraxel, Pixel, to name a few.
Fractional Photothermolysis is the mechanics at work here. This means that a directed percentage of a selected area is treated, thus resulting in rapid healing and superb results. Hence the term: Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing. This has a dot like effect on the skin as the areas being treated have a dot like look.
Halo by Sciton, how does it work?
With so many options in the field of Fractional Skin Resurfacing, how do we know that the best option is?
Halo by Sciton differs from other Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing devices, due to the method of delivery of the Laser Wavelength. It does so by reducing heat energy build up resulting in a much more comfortable experience and greater results.
Halo by Sciton is much safer as there are 4 aspects of control and a vide variety of settings, making specification and customization exact. Furthermore, the tip allows for cooling and is proactive in measuring skin temperature at all time. This makes all the difference.
Additionally from the Integrated Cooling hand piece, Halo by Sciton has Optical Navigation ability. Halo measures the speed that the hand piece is moving relative to the skin and adjusts the scanning speed to guarantee an even treatment. Halo by Sciton is crafted with specific abilities, unlike any other Fractional Skin Resurfacing device to date.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing vs. Traditional Lasers
- less painful
- less downtime
- less expensive
- more effective
- treat a wider range of skin problems at once
- treat al skin types
- less risk
- more control
- better navigation and cooling
- greater synergy
Mixing ablative and non-ablative wavelengths comes with 15 years of experience, and finding the sweet spot has been key, in field of Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing. Research has proven over time that less is more, as is being selective.
Non-Ablative and Ablative Lasers, the synergy at work/Laser Skin Resurfacing. Why is Fractional Skin Resurfacing Technology so powerful?
To better understand Halo by Sciton is such a powerful tool, we must understand the difference between these two types of wavelengths:
Non-Ablative Fractional Lasers:
Halo utilizes both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths and hybridizes them. The non-ablative wavelength has a variable depth, ranging rom 200 to 700 microns. At this range, both, dermal and epidermal lesions care optimally targeted. It is tunable according to each individual's needs and goals. Halo by Sciton offers four variables in depth and coverage, ablative and non-ablative, thus matching the results of Traditional Lasers minus the downtime and the risks involved.
700 microns is where the epidermal junction is, and that is where: pigmentation, sun damage, acne scars, dermal elastosis reside. Hyperpigmentation is down between the 200-300 micron range. this explains how using both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths is so instrumental in addressing all these issues and once. As mentioned, these ranges of depth anc coverage are tunable to customize specific needs and concerns.
Ablative Fractional Lasers:
These are the wavelengths that vary in depth between 0 to 100 microns, and target the intraepidermal tissue. These are more aggressive and offer flexibility for specific customization.
Why Fractional Lasers?
These two wavelengths are deliberately delivered simultaneously, and Halo by Sciton, falls in between these two making Fractional Skin Resurfacing the number one option on the market. Fifteen years of research, offers the best and the sweet spot, a technology that delivers a potent treatment with little discomfort and relatively low downtime.
Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing treats the following skin concerns:
Due to the wide range of wavelengths at work with Fractional Lasers, with over 15 years of experience, it has been proven that Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing is the best option to date. Fractional Lasers treat: age spots, acne scars, melasma, solar elastosis, wrinkles, stretch marks, skin texture and tone, enlarged pores to mane a few.
The area of great surprise have been in the degree of success to treating melasma and enlarged pores. There are two ares that have been the pleasant surprise in the mix.
