HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser | Jacksonville Florida

What is HALO?

HALO by Sciton is a hybrid fractional laser designed to deliver ablative and non-ablative energy simultaneously. Ablative lasers are some of the most transformative lasers available, but they can have extensive downtime. Non-ablative lasers have virtually no downtime but can require multiple treatments to correct uneven skin tone.

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 laser energy 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. By triggering the body’s natural healing response, 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 that can also help maintain the results of surgical or non-surgical med spa procedures. It can be used on all skin tones and types, and Dr. Basile can determine whether it is best for your specific goals at your initial consultation. How many treatments are necessary can vary, but Dr. Basile will recommend the appropriate amount of halo laser treatments.

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 treatment device will be passed over the skin without touching it, and a laser beam will create tiny microchannels on the skin’s surface. Patients often compare the sensation of the ablative laser treatment to a rubber band snapping.

Results and Recovery

Immediately after treatment, it’s normal to experience some redness and sensitivity (similar to sunburn). Our team will supply detailed aftercare instructions on how to care for 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 appearance and skin texture 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 healthy skin with a single treatment, but you can benefit from two Halo treatments depending on your goals.
