HALO™ SKIN RESURFACING (Sciton®)
Without treatment, your skin loses its youthful glow due to sun exposure, aging and environmental factors.
In the past, different types of laser treatment for your face and other parts of the body didn’t effectively remove this sun damage because they targeted layers of the skin that were either too shallow or too deep.
However, Halo™ anti-aging laser treatment takes the lessons of the past and combines them with new technology.
What is Halo™ Skin Resurfacing?
Halo™ is a new, cutting edge laser treatment that can dramatically improve dull, sun-damaged, and tired-looking skin without the downtime associated with traditional laser resurfacing procedures.
Halo eliminates years of sun damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo also restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
How Does Halo Skin Resurfacing Work?
HALO™ is the first hybrid fractional laser using ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to create microscopic treatment zones deep in the skin.
These two types of revitalizing light waves target not only the surface of skin, but also deep below, which is the key to laser skin resurfacing. When both areas of the skin are targeted, the skin’s healing mechanism is triggered, resulting in the improvement of fine lines, texture, pigmentation, scars, enlarged pores and laxity.
People who choose this procedure notice the benefits of Halo™ laser resurfacing in only 1-2 treatments!
The laser treats a fraction of the skin so that the skin recovers quickly, usually in 5-7 days. Normally 2-5 days after the treatment, you can expect subtle improvements in the quality of your skin.
Typical treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, and hands, but Halo™ can be used virtually anywhere, as most people prefer skin resurfacing around the eyes and lips. All skin types can be treated.
Does Laser Resurfacing Hurt?
Before treatment, a topical anesthetic is applied, and due to the assistance of cooling technology during treatment, patients experience little discomfort. You may experience a warm, prickling sensation; however, Halo™ is safe and effective.
Halo™ laser treatments last for approximately 30 minutes, and you’ll spend the entire time lying down.
Because your skin is always affected by sun exposure and environmental factors, Solana recommends that you lie low during your recovery process. Inflammation may be visible, and if you do venture outside, be sure to wear sunscreen that’s SPF 30 or higher.
When Should You Think about Halo™ Laser Treatment?
Halo is considered an anti-aging laser treatment, and it’s meant to treat conditions related to aging such as wrinkles, fine lines and the loss of collagen and elastic tissue, which causes skin to sag.
Other skin conditions that Halo™ laser treatment helps are:
- Sun damage
- Poor Texture
- Enlarged Pores
What Are the Benefits of Halo™ Laser Resurfacing?
The benefits of Halo™ laser resurfacing are many, with just one treatment resulting in smoother skin and smaller pores.
Halo™ laser treatment also diminishes lines and wrinkles, while reducing pigmentation irregularities, such as sun spots.
After the first week of the first treatment, redness and rosacea will also be reduced, creating a brighter and more even tone for your skin.
