Halo: The Only Hybrid Fractional Laser
Compass Dermatology is the first clinic in Toronto to offer the cutting edge Sciton® Halo™, the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser. Until now, you had to choose between an ablative procedure that produced great results but with a lengthy recovery, or a non-ablative procedure with rapid recovery but less impressive results. Now with Halo, you get the best of both worlds: great results with minimal downtime. The Halo simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to maximize results and reduce downtime.
Halo treatments significantly improve:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation, including sun damage, age spots, freckles, and melasma
- Dull or uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
The Halo is tuneable to allow its use on any skin type. The treatment requires application of topical anesthetic only. Most patients can resume their normal daily activities, including the use of makeup, 24 hours after treatment. You will see improved pigmentation within 5 days following your treatment, while dermal collagen regeneration continues for months. The results are long-lasting and can be maintained and further enhanced with subsequent Halo treatments combined with Forever Young BBL.
What is the difference between ablative and nonablative laser treatment?
Ablative laser treatments are one of the most effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. Ablative lasers remove the outer layers of damaged skin, triggering healing and increased collagen production. This results in firmer skin with more even tone and texture. However, ablative laser treatments have a recovery period of 1-2 weeks.Non-ablative laser treatments heat up the skin, but do not remove it. The heat triggers remodelling of the skin with increased collagen production.
Non-ablative laser treatments heat up the skin, but do not remove it. The heat triggers remodelling of the skin with increased collagen production. There is little recovery time but more treatments are required to achieve the desired results.
Until now, you had to choose between an ablative procedure that offered great results but a lengthy recovery time, or a non ablative procedure with a rapid recovery but marginal results. Now with Halo, you get the best of both worlds: great results with minimal downtime.
