REVOLUTIONARY SKIN RESURFACING: Introducing the halo Hybrid Fractional Laser
Radiant, Anti-Aging Results with Minimal Downtime
Laser facial resurfacing treatments are becoming an increasingly popular nonsurgical option for thousands of women and men who want a less invasive way to rejuvenate their skin.
Before halo, those wanting to improve their skin had to make a choice: a powerful laser that gave great results but had a long, painful recovery time, or a procedure with fast recovery, but less impressive results.
Halo™, the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser, is making that dilemma a thing of the past. Developed by Sciton, halo is quickly becoming the most sought after resurfacing laser treatment on the market and is offered exclusively within the Sciton platform of lasers.
Skin damage from the sun or the aging process accumulates over the years. Halo precisely targets years that damage, including:
- Sun damage and sunspots
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Rough texture
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Scars from chickenpox, acne, or past injury
Halo combines the best qualities of both ablative and non-ablative fractional laser treatments. With the halo, both the epidermis (top most layer of skin) and the dermis are treated at the same time. Halo works by creating tiny laser holes deep in the skin’s dermis, while leaving the surrounding tissue intact, promoting faster healing.
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, a Halo treatment is generally tolerable. Most people describe it a warm tickling sensations. After the treatment, most people will continue to feel warm for an additional 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatments.
“With Halo, I can offer my patients a lot of flexibility—we can treat the entire face, or target specific areas on the face, neck and chest,” said John Standefer, MD, owner of Fresh Image Facial Plastic Surgery in Dallas. “They can also choose how many procedures they want: one or two deeper sessions or multiple, lighter ones to get the same result over a longer period of time.” Benefits begin to appear as early as five days after a Halo treatment with improvements in irregular pigment. This is followed by deep dermal regeneration where new collagen is formed and skin feels tighter and smoother. This improvement process continues for many weeks and means you can literally watch your skin become clearer and younger looking! The results will last for years to come and each additional halo treatment will continue to improve your results.
With the halo glow, women and men see fewer fine lines and wrinkles, smaller pores, and less sun damage, with better tone, texture, light reflectivity, and glow. All this adds up to a healthier, more youthful appearance.
Radiant skin without the downtime: it’s the best of both worlds with Halo!
