Sciton® Halo™ Laser Skin Resurfacing
Over time, your skin will lose its youthful glow to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As you age, the appearance of sunspots, fine lines and wrinkles becomes common. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo™ eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting damage at the right depth.
Best of all, Halo creates beautiful results without the recovery time of more aggressive treatments.
How It Works
Using the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, Halo delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to microscopic treatment zones to provide surgical results without the surgical downtime.
What to Expect
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment, your clinician may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to minimize any sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking-technology to ensure it is treated evenly. The clinician will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo hand piece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
Will it hurt?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
For the first 24 hours, you should keep your skin protected according to your clinician’s instructions, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours, your skin will begin to peel. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin will peel, revealing newer, younger skin beneath.
What kind of results can I expect?
Halo is a complete skin-rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size and increased luminosity.
When will I notice results?
You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigment improvements in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
How long will the results last?
Halo results will last for years, but you should continue to use sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin each time.
Is the Halo™ for Me?
Halo can be done on most skin tones, though treating darker skin may require more pre-treatment preparation.
As with any medical procedure, speak with your healthcare provider about the right options for you.
