Why Choose The Sciton Halo™ Laser?
You want immediate results after a single laser skin resurfacing treatment. But you don’t want the downtime that an ablative laser procedure would create. This used to be impossible. However, the new Sciton Halo™ laser delivers!
Laser skin resurfacing has typically offered two clear options: ablative and non-ablative. Ablative lasers, such as CO2 laser resurfacing, are single-treatment laser skin resurfacing procedures that use clinically proven wavelengths to remove the top layer of skin while stimulating anti-aging collagen and elastin. After substantial downtime, patients look dramatically younger and vibrant.
As most patients prefer avoiding the downtime associated with ablative lasers, non-ablative lasers were developed. These fractionated lasers require a series of treatments, gradually improving skin tone and texture. There is little-to-no downtime, but patients often require 3 or more treatments to see real results.
Each of these laser skin resurfacing procedures have clear benefits and drawbacks. But what if you could get the results of an ablative laser with the downtime of a non-ablative laser treatment?
Why Choose The Sciton Halo™ Laser?
Enter the Sciton Halo™ laser, the first ever Hybrid Fractional Laser, combining both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, giving patients ablative results without the typical healing and downtime required from such procedures.
Patients can expect improved skin tone and texture from the Halo™ laser, including brighter complexion with reduced hyperpigmentation and brown spots, younger-looking skin with the treatment of fine lines and wrinkles, decreased appearance of pore size, results in just 1-2 treatments with little-to-no downtime

How Does The Sciton Halo™ Laser Work?
The Halo™ laser targets what Sciton calls “microscopic treatment zones” using ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. These dual wavelengths offer the most customizable laser skin resurfacing procedures available.
The epidermis heals and rejuvenates more quickly than the dermis following a laser treatment. Ablation is delivered to the epidermis while non-ablative wavelengths treat both the epidermis and the dermis. The ablation does not penetrate to the dermal layer, speeding up healing time while providing exceptionally fast and dramatic results. The Halo™ laser is very customizable.
What Happens At Your Halo™ Laser Consultation?
Every new patient consultation is used to determine your skin concerns and goals, determining which treatment(s) will help you achieve your desired results. We make this determination through a skin examination, medical history, and an in-depth conversation. At this end of this process, we will be able to determine if the Halo™ laser is right for you. In some cases, we may recommend a different treatment or combination of treatments to help you see the best results.
What Happens During Your Halo™ Laser Treatment?
Before your Halo™ laser procedure, we will apply a topical numbing cream to the treatment area. Treatment time varies based on the size of the area being treated. After the numbing cream has taken effect, one of our providers will use the handheld treatment wand to deliver the laser light to your skin while you lie back and relax.
What Can You Expect From Your Halo™ Laser Treatment?
Your skin may be red and slightly tender, similar to a mild sunburn, for a day or two following your treatment. This is common with non-ablative lasers. You will likely experience some skin peeling as the epidermal layer turns over, removing old skin cells and replacing them with fresh, younger-looking skin. It’s important to protect your skin from direct sunlight, so wear wide-brimmed hats and apply sunscreen. Most patients will see full results after one or two treatments. It can take several weeks/months following each treatment to see the full result of that treatment.
