What is Sciton HALO?

Sciton HALO is the first hybrid fractional laser treatment that combines the power of ablative wavelengths, sometimes called “wounding lasers,” with non-ablative wavelengths to deliver remarkable results. Combining these wavelengths offers one of the most effective treatments available today to treat the following skin concerns:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage and hyperpigmentation
  • Acne scars and stretch marks
  • Uneven skin tone and texture
  • Loss of elasticity and firmness
  • Enlarged pores

Science Behind the HALO Laser

  • 1470nm non-ablative laser: This wavelength gently heats the deeper layers of your skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production with zero invasiveness.
  • 2940nm ablative laser: This deeper-level laser precisely removes microscopic channels in the outer layer of your skin, promoting rapid resurfacing and renewal.

HALO is safe and FDA-approved for treating your skin's superficial and deeper layers.

Benefits of Sciton HALO

Whether you're seeking to address specific skin concerns or looking for overall rejuvenation, Sciton HALO has significant benefits, including:

  • Customization to treat a wide range of skin concerns
  • Minimal downtime
  • Long-lasting results

Sciton HALO Candidates

While Sciton HALO can treat wide-ranging skin concerns, it's essential to determine if you're a suitable candidate. Ideal candidates have healthy skin and no active acne or infections.

Other cautionary conditions include a history of keloid scarring, medical conditions such as diabetes or uncontrolled high blood pressure, or currently pregnant or breastfeeding. Based on your individual needs and circumstances, we might recommend alternative procedures or suggest waiting until certain skin conditions are cleared.

Consultation and Preparation

The best way to determine your candidacy for Sciton HALO in San Jose or Palo Alto is to schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified aesthetic advisors.

During the consultation, we’ll evaluate your skin, discuss your concerns, review your medical history, and discuss your desired results and expectations. We’ll walk you through what to anticipate during the procedure and identify any potential risks. We want you to bring up any questions, and we will listen and do our best to set realistic expectations.

The HALO treatment typically takes around 30 minutes, depending on the treatment area and desired results. Here's a brief overview of the process:

  • Your skin is cleansed and prepped.
  • A topical numbing cream may be applied for increased comfort.
  • The HALO laser is applied to the targeted area.
  • You may experience a warm and tingling sensation during the treatment.
  • Post-treatment cooling and soothing creams are applied.

Results, Recovery and Aftercare

Following the Palo Alto or San Jose HALO treatment, you can expect some redness, swelling, and flaking for a few days. These side effects are typically mild and subside within a week. You can return to most activities within 2-3 days, but avoiding sun exposure and strenuous exercise is highly recommended.

The full results of HALO become visible gradually over several weeks as your skin produces new collagen and elastin. Final results include a smoother, brighter, and more youthful complexion with improved texture, reduced wrinkles, and diminished scars and hyperpigmentation.
