WHAT IS HALO?

Halo by Sciton is a targeted laser treatment that uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative laser energy to maximize results with minimal downtime. The ablative laser removes outer layers of skin to address superficial concerns, while the non-ablative laser creates controlled micro-injuries to stimulate collagen production without removing tissue.

A topical anesthetic is first applied to the treatment area to numb it, and a typical Halo laser treatment session is completed within 30 minutes.

WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR HALO?

Halo laser treatments are safe for all skin types. Patients who have several different types of skin imperfections—such as fine lines or wrinkles, changes in the tone or texture of their skin, and some types of scarring—may be the best candidates for Halo. This laser treatment is not designed for individuals who have some types of chronic skin conditions.

Halo can be customized to fit your specific goals, whether you want a light treatment that allows you to go back to your normal activities the next day or a much deeper treatment that provides more comprehensive results with a few more days of downtime.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HALO?

One of the main benefits of this treatment is that patients can achieve the remarkable results associated with an ablative laser and also the shorter, more comfortable recovery associated with non-ablative laser treatments. It can address many common types of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars and other types of scars, sun damage and dyschromia, pigmented lesions, signs of aging, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone, uneven skin texture, and stretch marks.

WHAT HAPPENS AFTER A HALO SESSION IN PHILADELPHIA AND VILLANOVA?

Downtime is usually limited to five to seven days, so patients will quickly be able to resume their normal routine. There are some common minor side effects to watch for—including redness, skin irritation, swelling, and itchiness—that will resolve on their own. The skin may continue to look pink for up to one week, but most patients will be able to go back to work within two to three days. To recover faster and preserve the best results, we recommend that you practice good skincare, limit sun exposure, and wear sunscreen. Sun protection helps to lower the risk of irregular pigmentation due to UV exposure while you’re healing.

The results take some time to develop within the following weeks while the skin heals. Noticeable results are typically visible within one week, and they continue to improve for weeks after. Unlike traditional, non-hybrid lasers, this treatment can produce stunning results in just one to two treatments.

Keep in mind that aging and sun damage will affect the results in the long-term.

WHICH OTHER SKIN REJUVENATION OPTIONS ARE AVAILABLE?

Cross Medical Group provides other light and laser treatments—including laser skin resurfacing and BBL IPL and photorejuvenation to improve the tone and texture of the skin, as well as “prejuvenating” Moxi and collagen-boosting SkinTyte—in addition to Halo. Other popular skin rejuvenation options include microneedling, chemical peels, and dermaplaning.
