Finally, get the results you want without the downtime you would expect. Sciton an authority in aesthetic lasers has introduced the Halo Fractional Laser, the world’s first ablative and non-ablative laser to achieve maximum results with minimum downtime.
What Can the Halo Fractional Laser Treat?
The dual wavelengths unique to the Halo laser allows complete customizing for each patient’s treatment based on their skin’s unique needs. Patients can expect to see improvements to:
What Makes the Halo Laser Different?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Hyperpigmentation from sun damage
- Uneven skin tone and age spots
- Acne or chickenpox scars
The Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass over the skin.
An ablative laser has long been considered one of the most effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin, the skin is forced to heal, increase collagen production and restructure, making way for tighter, rejuvenated skin. The downfall of an ablative laser is the recovery and downtime needed, often 1-2 weeks.
A non-ablative laser treatment is far less invasive with little-to-no downtime. By heating up the outer layers of skin but not removing them, a non-ablative laser treatment is popular for patients who need to return to their everyday lives right after treatment. The downfall here is a series of several treatments are needed to achieve desired results with a non-ablative procedure.
The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser focuses energy on the deeper collagen layer of skin leaving the surface of your skin largely intact for a quicker healing time. It delivers the results of an ablative procedure with little-to-no downtime, like a non-ablative treatment. The best of both worlds!
After Your Halo Laser Treatment
Immediately after your Halo treatment, a restorative skin cream will be applied to the treated areas to keep the skin moist. Swelling and redness is common and expected after treatment. The area may also feel extremely warm for 12-24 hours post op. Cold compresses will help calm the warmth in your skin and help reduce swelling.
When leaving the office you will look like you’ve been in the sun a bit too long but you can resume your normal business day.
On the second or third day after treatment, you will begin to notice tiny dark spots and a bronzed appearance to the treated skin. This is part of the healing process where treated tissue is working its way out of your body as new fresh skin is regenerated. During this time, your skin will be very dry and have a sandpaper texture. It will begin to flake and peel. For the face, this can last 5-7 days. If the neck, chest or anywhere else on the body was treated, this process could take up to two weeks.
After the peeling process is complete, your skin will have a rosy, pink glow that will gradually resolve. Sunscreen is a MUST throughout the entire healing process. It should be applied daily beginning the day of treatment and used vigilantly for up to three months post procedure. A post op kit will be provided to you for cleansing and exfoliating the skin. Any post treatment discomfort may be relieved by over the counter oral pain relievers.
