Sciton Halo Laser in Grand Rapids, Michigan

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.

Consultation and Preparation

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.

Sciton Halo LaserProcedure

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.

Recovery, Results, and Aftercare

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.
