Halo Pro Laser
The Halo Pro Laser by Sciton is a highly customizable hybrid laser treatment that can target years of damage to your skin. Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process, but everyone is different from their skin type, to their lifestyle, to their tolerance of downtimes. The Halo Pro offers customized treatments for any skin type with maximum results and low downtime.
Halo Pro laser is referred to as a hybrid laser because it combines both ablative and non-ablative to target and treat various types of skin damage in a single treatment. Halo Pro eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth.
As the skin heals, collagen and elastin generation and remodeling occurs. Halo Pro can dramatically improve skin quality by reversing sun damage, softening the skin, and removing brown spots. Halo creates beautiful results without the downtime of more aggressive treatments. Halo restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
Halo precisely targets years of damage to your skin, including:
- Sun damage
- Visible signs of aging
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Poor texture
- Fine lines
- Scar revision
Frequently Asked Questions
What is the Halo laser treatment?
Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser with unique dual wavelengths which applies tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone maximizing results and reducing downtime. Dual wavelengths allow the provider the ability to customize treatments for each individual based on their individual needs.
What results can I expect?
Halo is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture, significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow.
How many treatments do I need?
What’s great about Halo is that you can choose how many treatments you want! Discuss with your provider your needs and you can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.
What happens during the treatment?
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your provider may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. Prior to the treatment, the area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The provider will treat each measured section by rolling the Halo hand piece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
What does Halo feel like?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations. After the treatment, you may continue to feel warm for an additional 30 to 60 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels. We take measures to cool you off after your treatment.
What is the downtime after Halo laser treatment?
Halo Laser Treatment produces expected side effects, often referred to as “down-time”. The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the aggressiveness of your treatment and your individual healing characteristics. Generally, patients who are treated more aggressively experience more intense and longer lasting side effects. Conversely, some patients who receive a less aggressive treatment may experience side effects of greater-than-expected magnitude. Notify your physician if the severity of your side effects becomes more than you expected. In addition, redness, swelling and pinpoint bleeding may also occur. You may experience more severe swelling around and below the eyes one-day post treatment. Occasionally, oozing can occur, in isolated areas, for a few days. You will notice some swelling and redness over the next few days. Swelling may be significant and cause some discomfort. The worst swelling is usually in the morning, particularly around the eyes. The skin will start to look “bronzed” and little dark dots will appear on the treated area. Some patients may also experience itching during the healing process. You may notice a “sandpaper” texture a few days after treatment. Your skin will feel dry, and begin to peel or flake. This treated tissue is working its way out of your body as new, fresh skin is regenerated. Sloughing skin is a normal result of laser treatment; in most patients, this process lasts 5-7 days.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
5-7 days after a treatment on the face. (On other areas, such as neck/chest/hands/arms, or any area off the face where healing is slower, the process may take up to 2 weeks to feel smooth.)
When will I see results?
You will see initial results 7 days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
How long will my results last?
Halo results will last for years to come; you should continue using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
How much does a Halo treatment cost?
Every Halo treatment is customized for your skin, and your lifestyle. Depending on your needs, your provider may recommend a single treatment, or a series of treatments.
