Restore your Youthful Glow and Reverse Years of Damage
Whether it’s due to sun exposure or the natural aging process, throughout the years, your skin can lose the appearance of health and vitality. Fine lines and sun damage can dull a youthful glow. The key to effectively reversing this kind of damage with our Grand Rapids Sciton Halo laser skin resurfacing is the depth of the laser; previous methods have been either too shallow or too deep. Halo precisely targets just the right depth to restore your fresh, vibrant glow.

What is Sciton Halo Laser?
Halo is an incredibly innovative technology because it utilizes two lasers in one. Halo treatment employs a hybrid fractional laser that focuses ablative and non-ablative wavelengths on the target area to restore skin quality on the face, back, chest, or extremities. While the non-ablative laser goes deep down into your skin to correct issues like scarring, hyper-pigmentation, and sun damage, the ablative stays on the surface layers to stimulate healthy tissue growth and remove damaged skin areas.
Imagine regaining that youthful, vibrant glow? A Halo treatment can give your skin a boost of vitality and a rise in confidence. With Sciton Halo, you can enjoy:
If you want to reduce or eliminate sun damage and signs of aging or address other skin challenges, are in good health, and understand the expectations for results, you are likely a good candidate. If you are experiencing active acne or have used Accutane within the last year, Halo may not be for you at this time. If you'd like to find out if you'd be a good candidate for our Sciton Halo Laser Grand Rapids aestheticians at The Bengtson Center can address that and any other questions you have during an initial consultation. Call us today to schedule!
Just some of the concerns that can be addressed are:
We will ask you about your aesthetic goals and any health concerns during a consultation.
We will also discuss expectations for results and payment options if needed. For at least 14 days before treatment, you will need to avoid sun exposure, tanning beds, and sunless tanning products, along with wax and hair removal creams. Your provider will give you additional detailed information on preparing before the treatment.
A topical numbing cream is applied prior to your Halo laser treatment to minimize any discomfort. Special eye-wear will also be provided to protect your eyes during the treatment. The Sciton Halo Laser uses integrated cooling technology to simultaneously cool your skin as it treats for additional comfort. Most patients report a warm sensation, similar to a sunburn, lasting 30 to 60 minutes following treatment, and sometimes even longer depending on the length of treatment.
One of the many benefits of Sciton Halo is that it is highly customizable for the provider. They can fine tune and adjust the depth of the lasers, the density of energy and pulse scope, and the equipment speed, and measure your skin temperature to return outstanding results. The treatment usually lasts about 30 minutes.
Halo laser treatment requires minimal downtime. Most patients resume normal activity 24 hours following treatment, allowing time for skin to calm. You will want to protect your skin and follow guidelines for care in the first 24 hours after treatment, as this window is crucial to the healing process. The most noticeable part of recovery is a bronzing tone that will start to peel after 2-3 days. This is normal, and your provider will lay out the best practices to allow for proper healing.
You should start to results of your treatment within the first week, with refreshed skin appearing after 3-4 days, and results can take up to 6 months to be fully realized at the optimal level. Be sure to follow a healthy skincare regimen, including regular moisturization, limited sun exposure, and the use of a high SPF.
The team of doctors, nurses, and staff at Bengtson Center for Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery would be thrilled to help guide you through your Sciton Halo treatment step-by-step, from consultation to follow-up. We want to ensure you are looking and feeling your best.

Due to integrated cooling technology and topical anesthetic cream, there should be little to no pain during the procedure. Most patients report a sensation of mild heat and a bit of prickling.
As with most laser facial treatments, possible side effects include redness and swelling, which are typically moderate and temporary
We recommend waiting 24 hours before returning to your regular skin routine.
No! Sciton Halo is safe for all skin types, including tanned skin.
Your skin will need about three days to get through some of the initial healing processes. After that, if most redness and swelling have subsided, strenuous exercise could be resumed.
With proper skin care and UV protection, Sciton Halo treatment results can last for years.
