What is Halo?
If you have considered skin rejuvenation by laser, Halo by Sciton will give you the results you need, with a shorter downtime than other laser treatments. The goal is to give your skin a youthful glow that is superior to any other anti-aging regimen. After a long, hot, humid summer, our skin is damaged from exposure to the harsh environment, stress, or simply as part of the aging process. You will discover that the superior results from laser treatment will not only improve your appearance, it will boost your confidence. The Halo Laser is different from traditional laser treatment in that it is what doctors call a hybrid fractional laser. Other lasers work on a single targeted level, whereas the Halo laser targets both the top and bottom layers of the skin at the same time.
How many treatments will I need?
Consult with your Charlotte dermatologist to determine how many treatments you will need. First, your skin will be assessed, and you will determine your realistic goals for skin rejuvenation. Most likely, you will get to decide how many treatments you will have. You can choose between one or two aggressive treatments, or if you choose to spread it out over many light treatments.
What to expect after Halo treatment
You will need to keep your skin protected for the first 24 hours after your treatment. Typically, after the procedure, patients can expect to experience redness and peeling for several days. Even though downtime is shorter that other laser treatments, you should not undergo a Halo by Sciton treatment if you have any important appointments or events coming up over the following week or two. You can expect four to seven days of redness, peeling, and discomfort. Most patients who have been through the procedure, report great looking skin that is free of uneven skin tone, sun damage, scars, and even acne. For most patients, a single visit to your Charlotte board-certified dermatologist, can improve your skin texture, reduce large pores, eliminate superficial wrinkles. Another benefit is that the procedure can often stimulate collagen, giving the skin a refreshed, younger appearance.
