For patients seeking a state-of-the-art solution for sun damage, wrinkles, poor skin texture, and scarring, the Halo laser from Sciton is a one-of-a-kind treatment that revolutionizes your complexion with minimal downtime. By combining ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, the Halo laser can rejuvenate the skin on the surface level while also reviving youthfulness from within through targeted collagen renewal.
What is the Halo laser?
MOXI is a highly requested skin rejuvenation treatment due to its limited downtime and transformative results. It’s perfect for those just beginning to see the signs of aging or for those who wish to undergo regular maintenance to keep their complexion in pristine condition.
The beauty of the Halo laser is its ability to fuse the benefits of ablative treatments (those that trigger microwounds to stimulate collagen regrowth) and non-ablative treatments (those that address more superficial signs of aging.) The dual wavelengths used by Halo restore a youthful radiance and rewind the hands of time, boosting your self-confidence.
Halo is an inherently safe procedure in which thermal energy is constantly monitored and adjusted. Your skin remains cool throughout your session as your comfort is continuously monitored. After Halo, pigmented skin cells rise to the surface and flake off over the course of several days. Over time, the renewed collagen production leads to firmer, tighter skin that is more elastic and hydrated.
What are the benefits of Halo?
With Halo, your provider can customize your treatment, addressing your unique degree of sun damage while honoring your downtime requirements. You can choose the number of treatments you undergo, based on your goals for improvement. Halo is appropriate for all skin tones, and with darker skin, it can resurface up to 30%, unlike other lasers that only resurface up to 5%. The Halo laser treatment truly is among the most effective and popular options for those seeking striking results with little to no downtime.
Who is an ideal candidate for the Halo laser?
Ideal candidates for Halo are dealing with acne scars, dark spots, sun damage, and wrinkles that appear on the face, neck, or body. They have not used Accutane (or any of its generic counterparts) within the past year and have not had a cold sore breakout recently. Patients should be mentally and physically healthy and have realistic, positive attitudes towards their results, based on a private, initial consultation with our team.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
You should protect your skin and rest for the first 24 hours, but after that you can resume your normal activities. Peeling will occur over the course of a few days.
When will I see results?
Between 3 and 5 days after your Halo session, you will begin to see marked improvements in your skin tone and texture that peak at around 2-3 weeks. Of course, these changes will continue to evolve over time, supported by the regeneration of your collagen reserves from within.
How long will my results last?
Halo results will continue to impress for years, provided that you protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun and follow a healthy diet and exercise regimen. You can undergo additional Halo sessions as needed to reach your ultimate goals for a radiant, flawless complexion.
