What Is Halo Laser by Sciton? The worlds only hybrid laser

HALO has the capability to simultaneously distribute ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in the same area and treat mild to severe skin conditions in the epidermis and dermis in one pass. This achieves better results with less downtime than other lasers.

How does Halo work?

Fractional laser technology is used to create micro-injuries in the skin. Fractional lasers deliver laser energy to the skin in columns, leaving untreated areas of skin between the columns. This allows the skin to heal more quickly and reduces the risk of side effects.

Dermal remodeling is the process of the body producing new collagen and elastin to repair the micro-injuries created by the Halo Laser. This results in smoother, tighter, and more even-toned skin.

In some cases multiple tools and lasers are needed to achieve results. Combing RF Microneedling, CO2 laser, Subcision, Bellafil, and the knowledge and expertise needed to make it all come together is what differentiates our practice.

This is two aggressive HALO treatments three months apart.

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Age spots and sun damage
  • Melasma

Halo Laser treatment offers a number of benefits, including:

  • Long-lasting results: Most patients see significant results after just one treatment, and the results can last for several years.

Why price and results matter when it comes to HALO

Not all who clinics who operate lasers are equal. What does that mean? Anyone can turn it on and use "safe settings" that are taught during orientation training. But do they know how to deliver results with optimal settings? Perform combination treatments? Handle complications? Safely treat all skin types? This is what you need to know. 

Risks and side effects of HALO Laser treatment

The most common side effects of Halo Laser treatment are redness, swelling, and peeling. These side effects are usually mild and resolve within a few days. In rare cases, more serious side effects can occur, such as infection and hyperpigmentation.

  • Be honest with your doctor about your skin concerns and goals.
  • Follow your doctor's pre- and post-treatment instructions carefully.
  • Use sunscreen every day, even on cloudy days.

Can HALO Be Combined With Other Treatments?

ABSOLUTELY! In fact, we almost always combine with Halo with Moxi, BBL, Fractional CO2 Laser, Subcision, Bellafill, and PRP. 

Combination treatments can be a great way to achieve your skin rejuvenation goals. However, it's important to consult with an expert to determine which combination treatment is right for you.

Here are some of the benefits of combination treatments:

  • More comprehensive results: Combination treatments can address a wider range of skin concerns than a single treatment.
  • More dramatic results: Combination treatments can often produce more dramatic results than a single treatment.
  • Less downtime: Some combination treatments can be performed with less downtime than a single treatment.
  • Safer: Combination treatments can be safer than a single treatment, as they can reduce the risk of side effects.

Don't settle for anything less when having major work done on your face. 

Is HALO better than Microneedling?

Whether Halo laser or microneedling is better for you depends on your individual skin concerns and goals.

Both treatments are effective in improving the overall appearance of the skin, but they work in different ways.

Halo laser is a hybrid ablative and non-ablative fractional laser treatment that resurfaces the skin and stimulates collagen production. It is effective in treating a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, age spots and sun damage, melasma, acne scars, and large pores.

Microneedling is a minimally invasive treatment that uses tiny needles to create micro-injuries in the skin. This triggers the body's natural healing response, resulting in new collagen and elastin production. Microneedling is effective in treating a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, acne scars, and stretch marks.

One of the main differences between Halo laser and microneedling is the downtime associated with each treatment. Halo laser has a longer downtime than microneedling, typically 5-7 days. Microneedling has a shorter downtime, typically 1-3 days.

Another difference between the two treatments is the cost. Halo laser is typically more expensive than microneedling.

Ultimately, the best way to decide which treatment is right for you is to book a Free Consultation with our expert laser provider, Mark Abbott, FNP, to discuss your goals to develop a personalized treatment plan.

HALO™ Vs MOXI™: Which Laser Treatment Is Right For You?

With so many options available, you may be wondering which laser skin resurfacing treatment is right for you. At Bolus Med Spa in Elkridge, Maryland, we offer both MOXI and HALO laser skin resurfacing treatments as well as RF Microneedling, CO2 Laser, Bellafill for acne scars, Subcision, and advanced lasers such as TRL (Tunable Resurfacing Laser). Depending on your goals and skincare needs, we will recommend a customized laser skin resurfacing treatment to suit your needs.

MOXI

MOXI is a non-ablative laser, which means it does not create an open wound in the skin. MOXI uses a random fractionated pattern at a specific strength to distribute microscopic depots of laser energy on the skin surface. This results in no actual open wound, but it creates a MEND, which is a microscopic epidermal tissue response that really brightens the skin. This is like “lightly” aerating a lawn.

HALO

The HALO Laser is a hybrid of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, and penetrates deeper into the skin than MOXI. It also uses a fractionated pattern at specific strengths that create MENDs. The HALO has one laser wavelength that goes deeper to treat damage at the dermal level and one that treats at the surface of the skin. This would be more like aggressively “aerating” the lawn. We can customize HALO to each patient’s specific needs.

How many HALO treatments will I need?

Thats up to you. Heres why: The number of Halo laser treatments you need will depend on your individual skin concerns and goals and the provider operating the laser. Most patients need two to three treatments to achieve their desired results, but keep in mind thats 2-3 treatments with the correct settings. 

For example, if you are gorgeous and looking to stay that way, or treat fine lines and wrinkles, you may need one to two treatments a year. BUT, If you are looking to treat acne scars, deeper lines and wrinkles, or melasma, you may need two to three combination treatments. 

Here are some factors that may affect the number of Halo laser treatments you need:

  • The severity of your skin concerns
  • Your skin type
  • Your age
  • Your desired results

It is important to note that Halo laser is a medical procedure, and there are some risks and side effects associated with it. The most common side effects are redness, swelling, and peeling.
