What is Halo Laser?
Halo is a fractional laser, a laser skin resurfacing treatment, using a combination of wavelengths to repair visible signs of aging with relatively low downtime, and results matching those of other more aggressive laser treatments. Halo by Sciton is know to treat visible signs of aging such as: skin discoloration, sun damage, enlarged pores, uneven skin tones, wrinkles, acne scars, stretch marks and melasma.
After the treatment, our patients report a significant improvement in: skin tone, texture, discoloration, fine lines, pore size and radiance to name a few.

It offers precision and flexibility in setting, thus the ability to customize treatment plans according to each individual's needs.

Halo Laser/What happens during the treatment and what should I expect?
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin for about 60 minutes, depending on the intensity of the chosen settings. Once the skin is numb a hand piece is rolled over the skin delivering wavelengths that affect the intraepidermal layer of the skin, and causing changes as deep as the dermal layer, resulting in collagen remodeling. This laser skin resurfacing treatment is the most popular and desirable treatment as it delivers results equal to those of the more aggressive laser treatments with minimal downtime in comparison.
