Non-surgical cosmetic treatments have become an effective way to achieve a variety of aesthetic goals without significant discomfort or downtime. While there are many different treatment options today, laser treatments continue to be considered the gold standard in skin rejuvenation and targeted treatment. Now, the Sciton Halo laser has taken laser enhancement to the next level, with the ability to combine ablative and non-ablative treatments in a single procedure. However, two are recommended.
First Hybrid Laser
The Sciton Halo is the first hybrid laser, offering both ablative and non-ablative options in the same treatment session. Non-ablative lasers offer comfortable procedures without less downtime, but the results are more subtle and the procedure must be repeated regularly to maintain positive results. Ablative treatments remove more layers of skin, revealing more dramatic results. However, the discomfort and downtime associated with ablative treatments are also much greater.
The Halo laser features both ablative and non-ablative options with every treatment session. This produces dramatic, long-lasting results with minimal discomfort and downtime. The treatment can also be tailored to the specific needs of each patient.
Multiple Treatment Benefits
The Sciton Halo laser can treat the following skin issues and concerns:
- Tired, dull skin tone
- Fine lines and facial creases
- Irregular skin texture and tone
- Enlarged pores and shallow scarring
- Hyperpigmentation and age spots
- Mild to moderate skin laxity
Whether you are looking for a way to reverse sun damage, create a smoother complexion or produce a more youthful appearance, the Sciton Halo laser may be the right treatment for you.
The Sciton Halo is fully customizable to the unique needs of each patient. The laser device is designed to detect the patient’s issues and tailor the depth of the treatment accordingly. In addition, the laser will determine which areas require more ablative treatment to produce the best possible results. The operator can choose from three basic treatment levels programmed into the device or create their own based on the desired results of the individual patient.
A treatment with the Halo laser involves little discomfort. The procedure does not require anesthesia, although a topical numbing cream is applied to ensure patient comfort throughout the procedure. A cooling device is also used during the 30-minute treatment to ensure the skin remains at a comfortable temperature.
After the procedure, patients can return to their regular activities within 24-48 hours. Skin may be slightly red and swollen, but these side effects subside within a day or two. It is very important to protect the skin from the sun for a number of weeks to ensure the skin fully heals properly.
Results from the Halo laser can be both dramatic and long-lasting. In fact, most patients are able to go for a number of years before needing a touch-up procedure. This is a huge benefit from a procedure that involves almost no discomfort or downtime and a unique benefit to this hybrid laser.
The Sciton Halo laser is an excellent choice in skin rejuvenation for patients with almost any type of skin type or specific concerns. To learn more about this innovative treatment, contact Robinson Facial Plastic Surgery at 770-667-3090.
