HALO, The World’s First Hybrid Fractional Laser, Is A “NewBeauty” Magazine Annual Beauty Choice Awards Winner

PALO ALTO, Calif. – April 25, 2016 — Sciton®, a leading manufacturer of high-quality laser and light systems in the aesthetic medical market is pleased to announce that HALO, the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser, has been named one of NewBeauty Magazine’s 2016 Annual Beauty Choice Awards Winners as “The Most Effective Laser for Glowy Skin.”

The Beauty Choice Awards, announced in the Spring/Summer 2016 issue, showcases the top beauty products in targeted categories. Winners are vetted by industry experts and NewBeauty editors and readers. HALO was recognised for its cutting-edge technology and impressive results, combining two laser wavelengths—ablative and nonablative—to target the top and deeper layers of skin, which allows HALO to address multiple skin concerns.

NewBeauty editors stated: “About 30 minutes is all it takes to reap the benefits. Once the dead cells shed, skin gleams and glows.”

“HALO has become a go-to anti-ageing treatment in dermatologists’ and plastic surgeons’ offices because it can be completely customised to the individual needs of every patient to address pigmentation, tone, and texture,” says Dr. Mark H. Schwartz, New York plastic surgeon. “With HALO, there is minimal downtime, and patients can return to normal activities shortly after the treatment. Improvement in the appearance of the most common signs of ageing will be visible after just one treatment, and HALO gives me the opportunity to treat virtually all skin types.”
