Sun exposure and the normal aging process can result in your facial skin showing spots, fine lines, and an overall loss of the healthy look. HALO™ by Sciton is the world’s first hybrid fractional technology where two distinct lasers are deployed simultaneously. One to heat and stimulate the deeper parts of the skin and the second laser removes the damaged superficial areas. The effects achieved are enhanced by the synergistic actions of the two distinct targeting lasers.
HALO™ is ideal for women and men who are looking for a non-invasive facial rejuvenation treatment that has minimal downtime.
What Skin Conditions does HALO™ Treat?
HALO™ Hybrid skin treatments improve:
- Overall skin tone and texture
- Skin discoloration
- Fine lines
- Pore size
- Skin reflectivity and glow anywhere on the body
You will see the results within 2-5 days but most see maximum improvement during the first 2-3 weeks.* Expect improvement in overall tone and texture, in addition to significant reduction in the appearance of fine lines and the pore size, along with a reduction of irregular discoloration. Most describe a ‘glowing’ skin after the procedure.
What Can I Expect During This Skin Rejuvenation Treatment?
A topical anesthetic cream is applied to the areas to be treated. After 30 minutes to an hour the HALO™ laser treatment begins. The areas to be treated are done one area at a time using the rolling HALO™ hand piece. Patients experience little or no discomfort during the treatment.
What Can I Expect After my HALO™ Skin Treatment?
Your face or other areas treated will appear to have sustained a mild sunburn which typically fades in about 24-36 hours. You can return normal activities immediately with proper moisturizing and sun avoidance. After 24 hours your skin will feel like it’s undergoing a mild peel as tiny particles of the laser-treated skin are shed. You will be able to put on makeup at this time.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
Dr. Manuel Peña will recommend the number of HALO™ treatments you will need for optimal results. Patients can select from one or two deeper treatments or have multiple less aggressive treatments to really minimize your downtime. With the latter option, you will achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time. Yesterday’s lasers cannot do what HALO™ can.
How Long will my Results Last?
Your HALO™ results can last years with the proper care (sunblock/UV protection and healthy lifestyle). Yearly or every other year “booster” treatments often help reinvigorate the skin to get that post treatment “glow” once again.*
During your consultation, Dr. Peña can answer any questions you have about skin treatments like HALO™ and any other non-surgical laser, radiofrequency and light source technologies that will deliver optimal results to meet your facial rejuvenation goals.
