The Sciton® Halo™ laser treatment uses duo technology to delivers a mixture of deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal to target skin imperfections.
Halo™ is the world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL) treatment that delivers a more intense rejuvenation treatment combining both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same treatment area. It allows patients to achieve improved ablative treatment results with non-ablative treatment downtime.
As we age, our skin can lose its youthful glow and areas of concern can become more visible like sun damage and fine lines. With the Sciton® Halo™ laser treatment, visible glow in 7 – 14 days.
Halo also has built in Dynamic Thermal Optimisation (DTO) which automatically adjusts the power of each pulse to match the temperature of the skin, so each pulse is very safe and precise.
Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser works by using two different types of lasers light -2940nm ablative laser and 1470nm non-ablative laser. As it is a fractional treatment, only specific portions of the skin are treated. The ablative side of the treatment targets the deep dermis layers of the skin to encourage new collagen production (neo-collagenesis) and the non-ablative laser breaks down micro laser channels in the epidermis to tone and improve the texture of the surface of the skin.
The best suited patients for Halo™ treatment are those who are experiencing areas of pigmentation, sun damage or uneven skin texture. Patients must be in good health, contraindications of Halo™ treatment include patients who have been taking Accutane or patients who are on anti-coagulant medication. Our practitioners will require a full medical history from anyone who wishes to undertake treatment at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic.
Your skin will go through a healing process following Halo™ treatment. During this time, the treated area of skin may start to look bronze before starting to peel or flake revealing fresh and brighter skin beneath. As time goes on, the skin will start to become smoother, firmer, vibrant, and clearer.

Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser is one of the most comfortable laser treatments. It is not known to cause pain. Patients should expect to experience a level of discomfort such as a warmth or prickling sensation during treatment.

The results from Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser are often noticed after 2-5 days with patients commenting on how smooth and youthful their skin felt. The results from Halo™ treatment will continue to improve as the skin will go through a dermal regeneration phase where collagen production is boosted.
The results from the Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treatment is designed to last for years to come as the treatment encourages new collagen production which will work to consistently improve skin condition from within. To help maintain your results we recommend protecting your skin from the sun with UV sunscreen and having regular Halo™ treatments every 6-12 months.
Our expert skin practitioners will advise you on how to prepare for Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treatment at your consultation or at the time of booking your treatment.

Most patients can get impressive results from just 1-2 Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treatments. Further treatment every 6 or 12 months may be recommended to help maintain results.
A great option with Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser treatments is that you can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or choose to have multiple treatments that are less aggressive, but you will still achieve the same results but over a longer period.
