Patients struggling with sun damage, acne scarring, or other complexion issues may find themselves searching for an effective solution. 

Madison Medispa offers a treatment called Sciton Halo that works below the surface of the skin to resolve these concerns and create more youthful-looking, healthier skin. Read on to learn more about Sciton Halo treatment and how it can improve your complexion.

What Is Sciton Halo?

Sciton Halo is an innovative skin treatment that uses laser energy to create healthier-looking skin. 

Using a handheld device, Sciton Halo delivers a combination of wavelengths of laser energy into the skin to target damaged cells, reversing signs of aging, discoloration, and other issues. Sciton Halo can also promote a healing response within the skin that creates a more youthful, vibrant appearance.

The Benefits of Sciton Halo

Laser skin treatments like Sciton Halo can offer a wide variety of aesthetic benefits, including the following:

  • Shrinking enlarged pores
  • Reversing sun damage
  • Fading discoloration and dark spots
  • Smoothing fine lines and wrinkles
  • Reducing acne scarring
  • Reviving dry, dull skin
  • Improving elasticity
  • Resolving melasma

One of the greatest benefits of Sciton Halo is the fact that it is an outpatient treatment that allows patients to see major skincare results without surgical intervention or any significant down time.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Sciton Halo Skin Treatments?

The ideal candidate for Sciton Halo laser treatments is anyone who is struggling with common skincare concerns like enlarged pores, signs of aging, sun damage, or acne scarring. The best way to determine whether Sciton Halo is the right procedure to meet your needs is by having a consultation with one of our specialists.

The Complete Sciton Halo Process

Prior to having a treatment like Sciton Halo performed, it’s beneficial to understand what the procedure entails. Below is a breakdown of the Sciton Halo process from beginning to end.

Preparation

Before scheduling a Sciton Halo session, you will have a consultation with one of our staff members. We will assess your skin’s issues and discuss your desired outcome to determine whether Sciton Halo is the best course of treatment. If not, you will be advised on other options at this time.

If Sciton Halo is the right procedure for your skin, you will be able to schedule your treatment. 

On the Day of the Procedure

On the day of your session, wash your face with a gentle cleanser without applying anything else to your skin. This includes cosmetics, serums, moisturizers, and topical treatments.

During your Sciton Halo session, you’ll be able to lie flat or reclined in a comfortable position while one of our cosmetic professionals administers treatment. Using a handheld device, we will deliver laser energy into your face, neck, or decolletage. 

This laser energy directly targets damaged skin cells that have caused scarring or discoloration. The wavelengths of Sciton Halo laser energy produce an ablation effect that destroys these damaged cells and promotes a healing response in the treatment area. 

Depending on what areas are being treated, this entire process can take anywhere from 30 minutes to two hours to complete.

Results

Sciton Halo is an outpatient procedure, which means you will be able to return home as soon as your session is complete. For the first four to five days, your skin may appear pink or red. This will gradually subside. You will be instructed to avoid sun exposure for the first four weeks to promote optimal healing. 

Patients typically see a noticeable improvement in their skin about one week after their session. The skin may appear smoother, tighter, and more vibrant. Pores may be smaller, and discoloration will be less visible.
