Halo®

What is Halo®? 

The Halo® Laser by Sciton is a revolutionary hybrid fractional laser system designed to address a wide range of skin concerns and provide comprehensive skin rejuvenation. It combines two laser wavelengths, ablative and non-ablative, into a single device, allowing for customized treatments tailored to individual skin types and concerns. The ablative wavelength targets deeper layers of the skin to stimulate collagen production, reduce wrinkles, and improve skin texture. It also removes damaged skin cells, promoting the growth of healthier, younger-looking skin. On the other hand, the non-ablative wavelength targets issues closer to the surface of the skin such as acne scarring and surface texture issues.

What concerns can be treated with Halo®? 

  • Improve appearance of fine lines/wrinkles 
  • Reduce appearance of pores Scarring Skin rejuvenation
  • Texture issues Improve skin elasticity 
  • Skin discoloration
  • Overall better quality of skin

What is the treatment like? 

For your Halo® treatment, a laser technician will start by applying topical numbing cream to the clients face, leaving it on for one full hour to ensure proper numbing. During the treatment, it is not uncommon for the skin to turn red and even experience some pinpoint bleeding. However, this will reside shortly after the treatment. Although we take the time to ensure the skin is numb, it is not uncommon for clients to experience a hot/warm sensation and mild discomfort. After the treatment, swelling should be expected and the skin will feel hot to the touch. For comfort, the client may apply an ice-pack or a cold compress.

Two to three days after the procedure, the client may notice tiny dark spots on the surface of the skin. These are tiny pieces of tissue called MENDS, and are normal after laser treatment. As the skin regenerates, they will disappear. Depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment and the client’s concerns, peeling and/or flaking may occur which can cause itchiness or dryness. Clients will continue to see improvement in their skin up to 3 months after treatment as the skin’s natural healing process continues and collagen production increases. Depending on the specific skin concerns and treatment goals, the client may require multiple Halo® treatment sessions spaced several weeks or months apart to achieve desired results. A licensed healthcare provider will recommend a personalized treatment plan based on individual needs.

Hair Removal: Do not wax or use depilatories in the treatment area for seven days before your appointment. Cold Sores Prevention: If you have a history of cold sores, inform your technician in advance. They may prescribe medication to reduce the risk of flare-ups after the laser treatment. Treatment cannot be performed on someone who is taking antibiotics, prescription topicals, or someone on Accutane within the past 6 months. Allergy Information: Notify your technician of any allergies, including medications, before the procedure. 

Post-Care:

Redness and Swelling: Expect some redness, swelling, and warmth immediately after the treatment. These side effects typically subside within a few hours to a few days. Peeling and Flaking: Your skin may start to peel or flake in the days following the treatment as old skin cells shed. Avoid picking or scratching at the treated areas to prevent complications, and scarring, and promote proper healing. Skincare Routine: Wash your skin gently with a gentle cleanser twice a day and apply a moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Use a physical barrier sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher daily to protect your skin from UV damage. The Laser Technician will provide you with post-care product recommendations. Follow-Up Care: Follow any additional instructions provided by your healthcare provider and attend any scheduled follow-up appointments. Avoid Certain Activities: Avoid strenuous exercise, swimming pools, saunas, and hot tubs for a few days following the treatment to minimize the risk of complications. Be Patient: It may take several weeks to see optimal results from your Halo laser treatment as your skin’s natural healing process continues and collagen production increases. Following these pre-care and post-care instructions can help optimize the results of your Halo laser treatment and promote a smooth and successful recovery process.
