Now you can restore a healthy glow and youthfulness to your skin with HALO—Sciton’s first and most popular hybrid fractional laser for all skin types. Before HALO Laser, patients had to choose between an ablative or non-ablative treatment. While ablative treatments are more invasive and typically require a longer downtime, non-ablative treatments may not be as effective as some patients would like. HALO combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to offer remarkable results with minimal downtime—including a dramatic reduction in sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, skin dullness, and more.

Patients may experience tightness of the skin and redness and swelling similar to a sunburn sensation.
On days two to three, a bronzing, sandpaper-like texture will form on the skin as MENDS (microscopic epidermal necrotic debris) make their way to the surface and fall off by day four or five, depending on the treatment depth and intensity.
A gentle cleanser and moisturizer are recommended until the skin has naturally exfoliated. Sunscreen should be applied daily with no direct exposure for 7 days post-treatment.
During a Halo Laser treatment, some patients may experience mild discomfort. With the help of a topical anesthetic, you’ll probably only feel a bit of discomfort. Towards the end of treatment, you’ll begin to feel warmth caused by the treatment. Right after your treatment, your skin will be red and very warm, almost as if you have a sunburn. We have a device called the Zimmer chiller, which you will use for a few minutes post treatment to alleviate the heat you will be experiencing. We recommend cold clothes, cold packs, even a cold roller to use 1-2 hours post treatment. Redness is normal and expected. Redness generally increases in intensity for the first few days after treatment, with day 3 being the most intense. Swelling occurs first 2-4 days post treatment, especially the under-eye area on the first day.
