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.

After trying to get rid of my acne with over the counter products I decided to try going to a dermatologist. They got me on a routine and my acne is significantly better since I have stuck to it daily.

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.

Most recently I have had several appointments with Dr. Jeffery Hsu for improvement on my shingles scars. They are on my face right above my eyebrow and I had been very self-conscious about it. Everyone in the office has been wonderful, friendly and professional. Dr. Hsu is highly rated in the Midwest, and I agree from my experience—from consulting with me about the scar, exploring my options, explaining everything, and performing the procedures … I was very comfortable and confident he could restore my face to what it used to be. The procedures have been quick and easy, and I am LOVING my results. He said I’d need 4-6 treatments, but so far I’ve had 2, things are already a significant improvement to where I’m able to sort of “forget” the scars are there. He’s been able to repigment the skin as well! I’m going for another treatment Wednesday and may even stop at 3 procedures, we’ll see. Very pleased with the quality of work and care. I also see Claire with Diamond glow facials to help with my milia, and she’s great and it works very well. Would highly recommend Oak Dermatology.

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.
