What are Sciton Halo laser treatments?
Halo restores the luminous glow of young skin. It is a hybrid fractional laser created by Sciton that provides high-quality laser skin resurfacing to counteract the effects of time. It is available to patients who wish to correct blemishes such as wrinkles, spots, and more. Previous lasers could not provide this level of effectiveness for removing damage, because the treatment was either to deep or too shallow.
How do Sciton Halo laser treatments work?
The Halo is a hybrid fractional laser, which means it can deliver both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths as needed. The treatment:
- Is customizable to precisely target skin damage
- Improves the appearance of tone, texture and wrinkles
- Reduces pore size while increasing reflectivity and glow
- Provides flexibility in treatment levels and downtime
How soon will I see results after Halo?
Following the actual treatment with Halo laser in NYC, your skin will go through a healing process, during which the skin will peel before results can be seen. This process can take around one to two weeks, depending on the area of the body being treated. Once the peeling is complete, the smoother, silkier skin underneath will be visible. You will continue to cleanse and exfoliate your skin in order to help nurture the rejuvenated skin and optimize the recovery process.
Why choose Sciton Halo?
Everyone’s skin is unique, and Halo is a leader in innovative customizable skin rejuvenation technology. Trusted by experts all over the world, Halo lasers offer a number of options and adjustable settings to help each and every patient get the laser skin rejuvenation treatment they need for their unique needs.
Is the procedure painful?
Prior to undergoing the Halo laser, a numbing cream is applied to the skin and left on to take effect. This will help to lessen any pain that may be felt with the treatment. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations but are generally comfortable. Following treatment, a restorative skin cream is applied to keep the skin moist and alleviate discomfort.
How many treatments will I need?
You can choose how many treatments you want! You and your dermatologist will thoroughly discuss your goals. From there, the two of you will decide if it may be beneficial to undergo one or two more aggressive treatments. Alternatively, you may decide undergoing a longer course of milder treatment over time is a better option. It all goes toward ensuring you are happy with the final result.
How soon after Halo laser can I return to normal activities?
For the first 24 hours after your NYC Halo laser treatment, you should keep your skin protected according to our provided instructions, but after that you should be able resume your normal activities. Your skin will begin to peel after the first 24 hours, but you will be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three, days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four, your skin will peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
What is the cost of Sciton Halo laser treatments?
Because every patient is different, our office will provide a cost after your dermatologist delivers a thorough consultation. During this time, the two of you will reach an agreement regarding your cosmetic goals, along with the treatment necessary.
