Sciton® Halo™ Laser Resurfacing

Restore your glow with Halo™



“Sciton

Woodlands Medical Aesthetics Institute is proud to be one of the 1st Med-Spas in Montgomery County to offer the Sciton Halo Laser Resurfacing Treatment!

Sciton® Halo™ is the 1st and only laser resurfacing treatment that combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pass to maximize results and control downtime. Halo gives you the results you want without the downtime you would expect!

Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this sun damage because they were either too shallow or went too deep. Halo eliminates years of sun damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.

Great Results with Minimal Downtime

In the past, you had to choose between a procedure that offers really great results but a lengthy recovery, or a procedure with a fast recovery but marginal results. Now with Halo you get the best of both worlds: great results with minimal downtime.

Halo combines deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal for a combined synergistic effect you can't get with any other treatment. Halo creates beautiful results without the downtime of more aggressive laser resurfacing treatments.



Be your own kind of beautiful!

Everyone’s skin is different. Everyone's needs are different. Halo allows your clinician to customize your treatment to the downtime you have available and the results you want. Need to be back at work tomorrow? A light treatment creates silky smooth, vibrant skin that’s ready for makeup the next day. Want to wow them? A more aggressive treatment will give your skin a deep youthful glow with just a few days of downtime. Ask your clinician today about Halo and restore your glow.

• Discoloration

Frequently Asked Questions

QUESTION: What results can I expect?
ANSWER: Halo is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines*, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow.

QUESTION: How many treatments do you need?
ANSWER: What is great about Halo is that you can choose how many treatments you want! Discuss with your clinician your needs and you can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.

QUESTION: What happens during the treatment?
ANSWER: Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your physician may place a topical ointment on your skin to reduce the sensation during the treatment. Your clinician will then measure your face with motion tracking technology to ensure your face is treated evenly. The clinician will treat a section of your face at a time by rolling the Halo handpiece in a crisscross pattern until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.

QUESTION: What does Halo feel like?
ANSWER: With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes.

QUESTION: Can I return to normal activities after my treatment?
ANSWER: Absolutely. For the first 24 hours you should keep your skin protected according to your clinician’s instructions, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours your skin will begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin will peel, revealing your new skin beneath.

QUESTION: When will I see results?
ANSWER: You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.

QUESTION: How long will my results last?
ANSWER: Your Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
