Halo Laser

What is a Halo Laser?

Halo is Sciton’s world famous hybrid fractional laser for skin resurfacing. HALO combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to address multiple levels of skin concerns, such as texture, pore size, sun damage, pigment, scarring in 1-2 treatments. Known for giving a flawless complexion, it’s called the “Halo Glow” for good reason.

How does a Halo work?

The Halo laser simultaneously delivers an ablative 2940 laser treatment to resurface the epidermal top layer of skin with a non-ablative 1470 laser treatment to remodel the deeper dermal layers of skin where damage like deep pigment and scarring originate and also where collagen is created. Together, these wavelengths provide both short-term and long-term benefits to a wide variety of patients seeking a flawless complexion.

Am I a good candidate for a Halo?

Anyone looking to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, pigmented lesions, enlarged pores, blood vessels, redness, sun damage, discoloration, actinic keratosis, and other signs of aging or scars will benefit from a Halo treatment.

What are the benefits of a Halo?

HALO is known as the “Holy Grail” of skin treatments—it addresses vascular lesions, pigmentation and textural issues all in a single modality.

What is recovery like and are there any side effects?

The Halo laser treatment can be tailored based on your unique needs and lifestyle. If you need to get back to work the next day, we can offer light treatment for smoother, vibrant skin with little irritation. Halo can also be performed more aggressively with about 3-5 days of downtime for more dramatic results.

How many treatments should I get?

Due to its fractionated nature, most patients require one to two HALO treatments to achieve their goals. These results can be maintained with yearly maintenance treatments.
