Is your complexion marred by hyperpigmentation, brown spots, and other signs of sun damage? Then it’s time to discover how the Halo™ Hybrid fractional laser can help improve the overall look and feel of your skin.

The Halo™ Hybrid laser – developed by Sciton – utilizes multiple wavelengths (thanks to its dual action technology) allowing for superior results. The wavelengths work in tandem to target your biggest skincare concerns; one wavelength works to target the top skin layer while the other focuses on the deepest layers of the dermis. The end result is clearer, smoother skin with minimal downtime.

The dual laser wavelengths is delivered via the Halo™ Hybrid handpiece, which is rolled across the skin by the practitioner. The treatment takes about 30 to 60 minutes to perform, depending on the treatment area. The procedure itself can be uncomfortable; however, numbing cream and cooling features on the handpiece can be used to minimize any discomfort.

Following your Halo™Hybrid treatment, patients will see their darker pigment rise to the surface of the skin and flake off. The deeper dermis layers will continue to form new skin, which encourages faster cellular turnover. This means that Halo™ Hybrid treatments aren’t just targeting visible sun damage, they’re also treating the sun damage you can’t see yet.

The number of treatments you may need will depend on your desired results. Halo™ Hybrid treatments can be controlled, meaning patients who can tolerate more aggressive procedures can opt for fewer sessions.  Ideal results – which are typically seen within a few months – include smaller pores, smoother skin, improved tone and texture, and brightened radiance.
