Sciton HALO®


Glowing, visibly healthy skin is one of the most common skincare goals we encounter. At Gilpin Facial Plastics & Aesthetics, we offer the leading laser technologies by Sciton so we can help you recapture a youthful glow and treat specific concerns. Sciton’s HALO hybrid fractional laser is one of our most preferred technologies for skin rejuvenation.

What is HALO?

HALO by Sciton is a hybrid fractional laser, meaning it delivers both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths so you can enjoy the benefits of both modalities. It’s one of our most effective ways to resurface and rejuvenate the skin for all-around improvement in your skin’s appearance, feel, and quality. And best of all, it produces noticeably more radiant skin within days.

How Does HALO Work?

Ablative wavelengths disrupt and exfoliate skin cells while non-ablative wavelengths do not – instead, they generate gentle heat to promote collagen growth. Ablative wavelengths tend to come with more substantial downtime whereas non-ablative lasers tend to come with very minimal downtime – by combining both types, HALO can provide all the benefits of ablative wavelengths with the downtime of non-ablative wavelengths.

Additionally, HALO cuts down on recovery by taking a fractional approach to treatment. Similarly to microneedling, it treats tiny areas of the skin while leaving the rest untouched. By ablating these tiny channels in the skin and administering non-ablative energy to promote collagen, HALO is an extremely effective combination approach to skin rejuvenation.

What Can HALO Treat?

HALO can treat a wide variety of skin concerns that interfere with a bright, glowing appearance. We recommend it as a way to more aggressively treat skin damage and reverse the effects of aging. You can use it as a regular “maintenance” treatment to regularly reverse aging signs, photodamage, collagen loss, and more to prevent the need for a more substantial procedure later on.

HALO can be combined with many of our other non-surgical treatments like Sculptra or Radiesse to restore youthful volume and stimulate new collagen. Our team will help you develop a personalized treatment plan during your consultation.

Who is a Candidate for HALO?

HALO is a great option for anyone looking to achieve clearer, brighter skin and reverse tougher skin concerns. If you’re looking for noticeable results and an effective way to boost collagen production, HALO is a great option. We recommend it as a way to regularly boost collagen and reverse the accumulating effects of aging over time. Dr. David Gilpin and our laser technicians can help you explore your laser options with HALO and our other Sciton platforms during your consultation.

What Sets HALO Apart?

HALO is unique because of its hybrid modality. This allows you to enjoy the transformative benefits of ablative laser technologies but without downtime. Additionally, HALO’s hybrid technology works together to better boost collagen production and rejuvenate the deeper layers of the skin through your skin’s natural wound-healing response, helping reverse the collagen loss that comes with aging. If you want a comprehensive laser platform that can do it all, HALO is an excellent option.

Side Effects of HALO

It’s normal to have some redness and sensitivity for the first few days of treatment. You may have some minor swelling which can be managed using cold compresses. After 24 hours, your skin will begin to feel textured and flake off. This peeling process can take a few days but once complete, it reveals new, healthy skin that is noticeably brighter and more youthful. Our team will provide detailed instructions on how to take care of your skin throughout this period. It’s essential to keep your skin protected from sun damage with SPF 30+. Within 5-7 days, you can enjoy your signature HALO glow.
