What is HALO™?
HALO™ by Sciton is the first and only hybrid fractional laser that effectively delivers both ablative and non-ablative treatment to targeted areas. In addition, patients report achieving maximum results with greatly reduced downtime. This exceptional system can provide separate treatments for both the top layer of skin and deep levels of skin known as the dermis. After a few treatments, patients notice a remarkable improvement in skin issues. Commonly treated skin issues include:
- Freckles and age spots
- Vascular Lesions or small blood vessels
- Loose skin areas
- Uneven skin tone and texture
The benefits of HALO™ by Sciton
In addition to outstanding results, HALO™ by Sciton offers patients many other benefits as well. Because your dermatologist is able to use multiple wavelengths, he or she is able to precisely treat problem areas. HALO™ provides patients the best of two worlds in a single treatment session. The procedure can rejuvenate skin as effectively as chemical peels, while offering the minimal downtime that is expected for BBL (Broad Band Light) treatments. HALO™ treatments provide long-lasting results. HALO™ is preferred over other laser treatments because it targets the precise depth needed to address the underlying imperfections. HALO™ treatments promote the growth of healthy skin cells and the increase of collagen production. It is also a non-surgical, non-invasive way to address acne scars and deep-set marks. Procedures can be performed in less an hour and the patient is free to return to work. Most patients find the process to be pain-free.
What to expect
Scheduling a consultation with a Charlotte dermatologist is the first step. During the consultation, your doctor will examine your skin, particularly the specific areas of concern. The main purpose of the consultation is to ascertain whether or not you are a good candidate for HALO™. Once it is confirmed that you are an ideal candidate, the dermatologist will then develop your personalized HALO™ treatment plan designed to meet your specific needs and goals. Some people only need one session to accomplish their desired look, while others may require multiple treatments.
