PALO ALTO, Calif.– April 24, 2015 — Sciton, Inc. celebrates its one-year anniversary of the Halo™ launch, the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser, at the 35th Annual Scientific Conference of the American Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery (ASLMS), LASER 2015, in Kissimmee, Florida (Booth 401). Halo combines deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal for a combined synergistic effect without the downtime of more aggressive treatments. The company’s symposium event will be held Friday, April 24, 2015, at 6 PM in the Gaylord Palms Resort and Convention Center. The company will present three clinical presentations featuring the company’s portfolio of laser products.
“We are extremely pleased with the results achieved with Halo’s first anniversary,” said Dr. Jim Hobart, Sciton’s Chief Executive Officer. “The feedback we receive from practices that were early adopters is universally positive. We continuously hear about how successful these practices are with Halo, and they consistently describe Halo as a truly ‘game-changing’ technology. The results that patients receive with reduced downtime make Halo the new gold standard for laser resurfacing.”
Halo, the next step in facial rejuvenation, combines wavelengths to create a non-ablative laser experience with results mimicking an ablative laser with non-ablative downtime.
Results from a recent survey of Halo users indicate a high level of patient satisfaction. According to the survey, more than 4,000 treatments were performed worldwide in less than 12 months. Nine out of 10 practices report performing off-the-face Halo treatments as well.
Sciton’s corporate policy of not charging for consumables is one of the biggest adoption factors over competitive technologies. Practices are excited to perform the Halo procedure because it not only produces amazing results but its per treatment practice cost is extremely reasonable.
Grant Stevens, MD, FACS, founder of Marina Plastic Surgery in Marina del Rey, CA, says, “Halo surpasses the results that we previously achieved with other lasers. No matter what age the patient is, Halo delivers a more dramatic youthful appearance.”
According to Dr. Arisa Ortiz, a dermatologist at the University of California San Diego, “Halo offers an innovative approach to resurfacing. It’s comfortable and predictably delivers great results. It’s become the most used procedure in my practice.”
Dermatologist Dr. Mark Lupin, of Cosmedica in Victoria, Canada, says, “Halo may be the new kid on the block, but it has really lived up to its name with beautiful results. It’s freed my patients from requiring any anesthesia and reinvigorated the entire practice.”
