HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser | Jacksonville Florida

What is HALO?

HALO by Sciton is a hybrid fractional laser designed to deliver both ablative and non-ablative energy at the same time. Ablative lasers are some of the most transformative lasers available, but they can come with extensive downtime. Non-ablative lasers come with virtually no downtime but can require multiple treatments.

HALO combines the best of both lasers, stimulating new collagen production and getting rid of dead and damaged skin cells to resurface the skin. This combination of lasers offers the best outcome with the least amount of recovery compared to many other laser treatments. With your treatment plan, HALO laser skin resurfacing can target a variety of skin concerns with minimal downtime and discomfort.

Who is a Candidate for HALO?

HALO is a great option for patients who want to see significant results from their laser rejuvenation treatment but don’t want to undergo extensive downtime. HALO can achieve a brighter, more youthful look to the skin and treat the following skin concerns:

  • Dryness and texture
  • Dull complexion
  • Scars
  • Acne scars
  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Enlarged pores
  • Mild to moderate skin laxity
  • Sun damage

HALO is an effective anti-aging option and it can also be a great way to maintain the results of surgical or other non-invasive procedures. HALO can be used on all skin tones and types, and Dr. Basile can determine whether HALO is best for your specific goals at your initial consultation.

What to Expect During Halo Laser Treatment

HALO laser treatment is non-invasive and virtually painless for most patients. Dr. Basile will apply a topical anesthetic to numb your skin and keep you comfortable. The HALO device will be passed over the skin without touching it and a laser beam will create tiny microchannels in the skin’s surface. Patients often compare the sensation of the laser to a rubber band snapping.

Results and Recovery

Immediately after treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness and sensitivity (similar to sunburn) and our team will supply detailed aftercare instructions on how to take care of your skin. You should plan to avoid exercising, sunlight, and hot environments, for example, since these things can aggravate your skin. Makeup can be applied 24 hours after treatment.

You’ll begin to see improvement in your skin’s appearance within a few days after treatment as the skin heals. New collagen production and developing improvements will continue for up to 6 months. Most patients see significant results with a single treatment, but you can benefit from two Halo treatments depending on your goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to see results from HALO laser?

You’ll begin to see results within 1-2 weeks of treatment, but your full results can take 3-6 months to fully emerge. This is because it takes time for your body to begin producing healthy new collagen to support and rejuvenate the skin.

How long to wait between HALO laser treatments?

Since HALO treatments are somewhat extensive, you should wait at least 4 weeks between treatments. Our team will give you a full schedule so you know when to return.

Do you peel after HALO laser?

HALO causes MENDs (small flecks of pigmentation that will darken and flake off) within 24-72 hours, which causes skin to have a sandpaper texture and coffee ground appearance. It’s extremely important to avoid picking, rubbing, or exfoliating the skin – instead, let it slough off naturally.

How long does it take after HALO to heal?

The healing timeline after HALO depends on the treatment plan. It generally takes 24-48 hours for swelling to go down and around 10-14 days for most redness to resolve. After about one week, you’ll experience the “HALO glow” with noticeable improvement in your skin’s look and feel, which will continue to improve as collagen production increases.
