Results you have to see to believe... without the downtime you'd expect.
Sun damage and the aging process can cause your skin to develop wrinkles, fine lines, and color irregularities. Skin can also lose its natural, healthy glow. It’s the definitive laser for fair skinned people with sun damage – period!
Sun damage and the aging process can cause your skin to develop wrinkles, fine lines and color irregularities. Skin can also lose its natural, healthy glow. Previously, patients had to choose between a laser procedure that produced great results, but required a longer recovery, and a procedure offering faster recovery, but with compromised results.
Halo is the first ever hybrid fractional laser, manufactured by Sciton—one of the world’s most respected and renowned laser manufacturers. Halo is called a hybrid because it’s two wavelengths, working in different layers of the skin combine the unique advantages of both “ablative” and “non-ablative” lasers to deliver the results you want without the downtime you’d expect.
Number of Treatments Needed
While some patients are happy with the results after just one treatment, the best results from Halo fractional resurfacing require two treatments.
Location of Treatment
One advantage of Halo is that its use is not limited to the face and areas such as the décolleté, hands and other body areas can be treated.
In most cases, you will be prescribed an antiviral medication and some topical skin creams prior to Halo fractional resurfacing. During the treatment, the handpiece is gently moved across the areas being treated to allow the lasers to stimulate the body’s natural healing process.
You will feel minimal to no discomfort. Following treatment, the old, dull, sun-damaged tissue gently flakes away revealing healthy, fresh, and glowing skin. Halo stimulates a gentle replenishment of the skin’s natural collagen over the following months to further enhance the results.
Fractionated erbium laser resurfacing has long been regarded as one of the best treatments for acne scars. We’ve found that Halo provides great results with minimal recovery and fewer treatments than some alternatives. At Total Aesthetics, we offer a comprehensive array of treatments for acne and other facial scars, including Halo, Sciton’s ProFractional™ laser, as well as microneedling, both with and without radiofrequency.
