The Ultimate Solution for Skin Rejuvenation

HALO® by Sciton is an innovative treatment that combines two laser technologies to target your skin's surface and deeper layers. The result? A more even complexion, reduced fine lines and wrinkles, and improved texture.

The Science Behind HALO®

HALO® by Sciton is a revolutionary hybrid fractional laser that delivers a unique treatment experience by combining ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. This innovative technology allows precise and customizable treatments to address many skin concerns, from fine lines and wrinkles to sun damage and uneven skin tone.

At the heart of HALO® technology is the science of fractional photothermolysis. This process involves creating microscopic zones of thermal injury in the skin, stimulating the body's natural healing response. By targeting these specific areas of the skin, HALO® can trigger the production of new collagen and elastin, which can help improve the skin's overall texture and tone.

The ablative wavelength of HALO® targets the outermost layer of the skin, creating controlled micro-injuries that stimulate the body's natural healing process. Meanwhile, the non-ablative wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin to stimulate collagen production and improve skin elasticity.

The result is a highly effective and minimally invasive treatment, with little to no downtime required. HALO® treatments can be customized to meet each patient's unique needs, making it an ideal choice for those looking to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and other skin imperfections.

HALO® Benefits

Here are some of the key benefits you can expect from this innovative treatment:

Improved Skin Tone and Texture

HALO® by Sciton can help improve your skin's overall tone and texture. This treatment works by using both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to target different layers of your skin. The ablative laser removes the top layer of damaged skin, while the non-ablative laser heats the deeper layers of your skin to stimulate collagen production. This results in smoother, more even-toned skin with reduced fine lines and wrinkles.

Reduced Pigmentation and Sun Damage

If you have sun damage or areas of hyperpigmentation on your skin, HALO® by Sciton can help to reduce the appearance of these issues. The laser targets and breaks down excess melanin in your skin, which can lead to a more even skin tone and reduced pigmentation.

Minimal Downtime

One of the benefits of HALO® by Sciton is that it offers minimal downtime compared to other laser treatments. While you may experience some redness and swelling immediately after your treatment, this typically subsides within a few days. You can expect to return to your regular activities within a week of your treatment.

Customizable Treatment

HALO® by Sciton is a customized treatment tailored to your skin concerns and goals. Your provider can adjust the depth and intensity of the laser to target your unique skin concerns, whether that's fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, or pigmentation issues.

Am I A Good Candidate For HALO®?

When it comes to laser treatments, one of the most critical factors is your skin type. HALO® by Sciton is a versatile laser treatment that can be customized to suit various skin types.

HALO® can benefit:

  • Individuals seeking to improve skin texture, tone, and overall appearance
  • Those with visible signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage
  • Individuals with uneven skin tone, pigmentation irregularities, or sunspots
  • People looking to reduce the appearance of scars, such as acne scars
  • Those with enlarged pores or a desire for smoother skin.
  • Candidates with various skin types and tones

What To Expect During Procedure and Recovery

The HALO® treatment typically takes about 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. Before the procedure, a topical numbing cream is applied to the treatment area to minimize discomfort. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, the HALO® handpiece is moved over the skin, delivering ablative and non-ablative laser energy to the treatment area.

You may feel some heat and tingling during the treatment, but most patients find the procedure comfortable. After the treatment, your skin may appear red and swollen, similar to a sunburn. This is a normal healing process and should subside within a few days.

It is important to follow Dr. Courtney’s post-treatment instructions carefully, which may include:

  • Avoiding direct sunlight
  • Wearing a broad-spectrum sunscreen for several weeks following the procedure
  • Applying a topical ointment to help soothe any discomfort and promote healing

What are the differences between HALO® laser and Fraxel?

HALO® laser is a hybrid fractional laser that combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, while Fraxel is a non-ablative fractional laser. This means that HALO® can provide more dramatic results in fewer treatments but may also require more downtime and have a higher risk of side effects.

How does HALO® compare to BBL?

HALO® and BroadBand Light (BBL) are both non-invasive treatments that can improve the appearance of skin, but they use different technologies. HALO® laser uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to target both the surface and deeper layers of skin. In contrast, BBL uses intense pulsed light (IPL) to target specific skin concerns.

Is HALO® laser treatment worth it?

The cost of Halo laser treatment can vary depending on the extent of the treatment and the number of sessions required. While it may be more expensive than other non-invasive treatments, many people find the dramatic results and long-lasting benefits worth the investment.
