Rewriting Your Facial Past with the Halo Laser

Rewriting Your Facial Past with the Halo Laser

Our skin is everything. It is our business card and what others see first. It’s also what sticks out when there are imperfections and blemishes. The most perfect face lift procedure could easily be hampered by poor skin quality. To combat this, plastic surgeons have embraced skin care, working with medical scientists to develop devices and products that actually improve the skin.

One such device is the Halo laser by Sciton. We all suffer skin damage from the sun, and the effects begin to add up and show themselves in middle age. Besides sun damage, acne scarring is an issue for many, the tell-tale signs even when the disease has dissipated. Sciton’s Halo works to correct both by giving surgeon’s extreme precision.

Counteracting the Sun

Unfortunately for many in their late 20’s and older who’ve spent time in the sun, the damage from our mother star has already been done to the skin. Freckles are small signs of what has been happening, while most of the irregularities will surface in time. Undoubtedly, even to a 30-year-old patient with severe sun exposure and potential damage, sunscreen is still the greatest tool in keeping your skin youthful and your appearance young by avoiding current and future damage.

In addition to sun damage, acne is still an enemy to a large section of the population and many will receive scarring that lasts a lifetime. The possibility that even small improvements can be made can help those in their 20’s and 30’s still fighting acne. Lasers like Sciton’s Halo are providing more than hope: results.

“The Sciton Halo is a fractional, ablative and non-ablative laser,” explains Dr. Pozner. “Our goal is to get rid of the darkened and mottled pigment [this patient] has in her cheeks. She has a little acne scarring, but the main thing I see is it’s mottled. You see some highlights and lowlights of different colors.”

With one treatment, the Halo laser makes a significant impact on surface features and coloration, providing the results with very limited downtime compared to ablative lasers.
