What is HALO Laser Resurfacing?

The HALO laser is a world-class, dual-wavelength skin resurfacing tool that can deliver customized results with minimal downtime. It differs from other lasers in that it is a hybrid fractional device, using one wavelength for the superficial skin layers and another wavelength for the deeper skin layers. By combining these two approaches, HALO stands out as a leader in its class, able to combat a wide array of irregularities.

What Concerns Can Be Addressed?

  • Wrinkles, lines, and creases
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scarring
  • Superficial surgical scars
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Brown spots
  • Poor skin texture
  • Uneven skin tone

How Do Sciton HALO Laser Treatments Work?

Ablative lasers function by vaporizing the outermost layer of damaged skin and come with more significant downtime. Non-ablative lasers work by sending heat energy to the deeper skin layers without harming the surface, boosting the production of collagen and elastin. Both laser types are beneficial, but when combined in the HALO device, the treatment is unparalleled. HALO also stands out for being able to treat both specific pinpoint areas and larger regions of the skin. The intensity of each session can be customized to the patient’s wishes and goals, as well as their expectations for downtime.

What Can I Expect From the Treatment?

Before your Sciton HALO laser resurfacing session in Nashville, your skin will be treated with a topical anesthetic to ensure total comfort and relaxation. Energy from the HALO handpiece is delivered alongside a built-in cooling system. HALO’s internal intelligence calculates the treatment time and scope precisely according to the patient’s goals. Each individual will require a different number of HALO sessions based on their unique needs. To see results faster, patients can undergo a smaller number of more aggressive sessions. Patients who prefer a more gentle experience can space their sessions out over a longer period of time.

What Will Recovery Entail?

After a HALO laser resurfacing session, the skin may continue to feel warm for about 15-30 minutes. The skin should remain covered and protected for the first day after treatment, as harmful sun rays can damage the pristine new layers revealed during resurfacing. The skin may begin to peel or bronze, depending on the areas addressed. As the old skin cells fall away, a refreshed, renewed appearance emerges. Patients can expect to resume their normal activities within a day or two. The most dramatic results are noticeable 2 to 3 weeks after a HALO appointment.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQ

How long will my results last?

Is the procedure painful?

How long will my results last?

HALO focuses on creating new collagen growth, which builds a healthier scaffolding for the skin and promotes youthfulness and firmness over time. For patients who use the proper sunblock, the results of HALO treatment can last years. Additional HALO sessions can also be scheduled to help maintain your rejuvenated appearance.

Is the procedure painful?

Before the HALO laser energy is administered to the skin, a topical numbing cream can be applied to make the treatment experience more comfortable. Most patients describe the process as a mild prickling sensation. After a HALO session, the patient is treated to a moisturizing serum that helps to soothe and calm the skin.
