What is a HALO® by Sciton Treatment?

A Halo treatment is designed to address scarring, sunspots, fine lines, and enlarged pores while improving your skin texture. This hybrid fractional laser treatment is both ablative, which removes a superficial layer of the skin, and non-ablative, which focuses on the surface layer of the skin without physical injury.

What to Expect during a Halo Treatment?

Before undergoing a Halo treatment, patients will have a consultation with one of Oak Dermatology’s experienced estheticians to assess skin type, discuss specific concerns, and determine the appropriate setting for the treatment. Additionally, the provider will provide education for pre and post-treatment care instructions to optimize results.

Preparation: On the day of treatment, the patient’s skin will be thoroughly cleansed and a topical anesthetic will be applied to enhance comfort during the procedure. Protective eyewear will also be provided to shield the eyes from the laser.

Sensation: Patients may experience a warming sensation and mild pricking during the treatment. The integrated cooling technology, as well as the numbing medication, helps manage any discomfort. Following the treatment, the treated areas may feel like having a sunburn.

Treatment Duration: Sessions typically last between 60 to 90 minutes. After treatment, patients can expect a downtime of approximately 5-7 days, which consists of having no sun exposure, not wearing makeup and a red appearance on the treated areas.

Staff is friendly and helpful. Stephanie Tracey is personable and takes her time during visits.

Had an excellent first experience with Oak Derm today. I was seen by NP Emily Schnurstein for facial flushing and hair loss. She listened carefully to all of my concerns and addressed each one of them throughly. The front desk staff was also very pleasant.

Yesterday I had a fantastic skin check and initial visit with Dr. Janiga. From the moment he stepped into the exam room he made me feel comfortable, was extremely personable, and helped educate me about caring for my skin and skin health. I enjoyed his approach of checking me over interspersed with talks about what he found/how I can continue to care for myself. Working in a medical role I interact with all sorts of doctors regularly and can say he is the best combination of professional and casual. Oak Dermatology’s entire staff was also helpful, friendly, and patient while providing a clean and tidy office. I will go out of my way to make sure I continue seeing Dr. Janiga in the future for my check-ups and will recommend him whenever given the chance.

Do I need a HALO® by Sciton or BBL Treatment?

For patients more concerned about scarring, pore size, texture, sun damage, or melasma, HALO® by Sciton is the better option. For patients who are happy with their skin texture, but are concerned with their redness, brown spots, blood vessels, or inflammatory acne, BBL is recommended.
