At Vitalyc Medspa, we use the Halo laser skin-rejuvenation system by Sciton to revitalize skin affected by sun exposure and the aging process. The Halo laser is the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser (HFL) and is revolutionizing skin resurfacing. It is safe for use on all skin types and can be used anywhere on the body.
Halo simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zones, giving patients results they love without the discomfort or downtime they expect. This technology is able to produce impressive results while minimizing tissue damage, leading to reduced recovery times after treatment.

What Is a Halo Treatment?
The Halo hybrid fractional laser (HFL) system is unique in that it uses both ablative and non-ablative laser wavelengths. Ablative treatments remove tissue from the treatment area, whereas non-ablative treatments do not cause tissue damage.
Halo by Sciton sets the standard for the future of laser resurfacing by providing a safe, tunable, and effective long-term hybrid option for resurfacing treatments. Because of the ability to provide both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, Halo is able to precisely treat a wide variety of skin issues.
The Halo laser can be calibrated for each individual patient’s aesthetic goals and can target many areas, including the neck, arms, face, legs, and chest. At Vitalyc Dallas, we tailor our treatment plans to each client’s exact needs.
The Treatment Process
A Halo laser treatment session can take anywhere from 15 to 90 minutes depending on which part of the body is being rejuvenated and how many areas are being treated. First, a topical numbing cream is applied by our clinical staff to the treatment area to make the process as comfortable as possible.
After numbing of the region is complete, the Halo handpiece is used to treat the target area with laser energy. The laser energy produces a warm sensation in the skin tissues, and minimal pain is typically felt during the treatment.
After Halo Treatment
Once your Halo laser skin treatment is complete, you may notice swelling or sensitivity in the treatment regions; this is only temporary. A feeling of slight skin irritation is another potential side effect. These issues can be treated through various methods recommended during your consultation and may include take-home skin-care routines.
The treatment strategy for Halo varies depending on the patient’s needs, desired outcomes, and downtime available. Treatments range from a large number of mild treatments to 1-2 aggressive treatments. Your Vitalyc Dallas experts will determine which plan is best for you based on a custom skin analysis.
To ensure lasting results from your Halo treatment, establish an effective daily skincare regimen and make sure to wear proper sunscreen. Generally, Halo results last for years, and maintenance treatments are available for those who wish to optimize their outcomes.
What Skin Problems Can Halo Correct?
Halo can correct rough skin, sun damage, enlarged pores, age lines, melasma, hyperpigmentation, wrinkles/fine lines, and uneven skin tone. This results in smoother skin and a more youthful complexion.
What Makes Halo Treatment Unique?
Halo is an HFL (hybrid fractional laser) treatment. This means that it is able to use ablative and non-ablative laser energy to treat skin tissues. Ablative energy creates enhanced results, whereas non-ablative energy is gentler on the skin for reduced downtime.
How Does Halo Laser Treatment Work?
Halo uses laser energy to remove dead and damaged skin cells, stimulating the skin’s healing process. The energy also encourages growth of new collagen protein, which results in healthier and smoother skin.
Is There Downtime After Halo?
Halo requires around four to six days of social downtime and healing. This allows any swelling, redness, and sensitivity to ameliorate as the skin begins creating new collagen. During this time, it will be necessary to follow the post-treatment care instructions provided to you. Makeup may be applied after 48 hours.
