FRACTIONAL RESURFACING

Over time, your skin can become lacklustre, due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, you may notice your skin losing it’s natural, youthful glow as sun spots and fine lines appear.

WHAT IT DOES

At SkinStudioMD, we offer fractional resurfacing using the Halo™ by Sciton. Halo™ eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth, restoring the luminous glow that accompanies youthful skin. This treatment improves the appearance of tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles in addition to reducing pore size and increasing reflectivity and glow.

HOW IT WORKS

Halo™, the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to microscopic treatment zones to provide ablative results, with non-ablative downtime.

WHAT TO EXPECT

HOW IT FEELS

With a topical anaesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15-30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.

TREATMENT TIME

Approximately 20-30 minutes, depending on the area being treated.

DOWNTIME

For the first 24 hours following this treatment, you should protect your healing skin as advised. After that, you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours your skin will begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two or three days, you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four, your skin will peel, revealing new skin underneath.

You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo™ treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.

FREQUENCY

Your Halo™ results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo™ treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
