Sciton Halo

Concerns such as: hyperpigmentation, lines and wrinkles, age spots, sun damage, acne scarring and dull / dry skin can cause a tired and dull look to the face. These concerns can often develop as a person gets older and are the result of the internal changes and the cellular damage that can occur from the environment and our individual lifestyle choices.
For whatever reason skin rejuvenation is required, Sciton Halo can act as the rescue remedy that your facial appearance needs, as it provides effective resurfacing to the superficial layer of the skin, whilst also replenishing and rejuvenating the deeper layers of the dermis.

The treatment involves the application of a fractional laser to the skin that delivers thermal and light energies to varying depths of the complexion. As the handheld device passes a laser beam over the skin it detects the damaged tissues, triggering a response in the skin that works to repair and replenish the cells. Thermal energy stimulates the regeneration of new collagen in the deeper layers, whilst also working to remove pigmented cells. The advantage of the Halo treatment over other skin resurfacing procedures is that it can target different depths of the complexion at the same time. A series of just 2 treatment sessions (compared to 4 or 6 with other treatments) are usually required to achieve optimal results, fast.

The treatment may take up to a week to develop as the resurfacing process needs time to work. The top layer of the skin will start to flake off as old cells make way for the new ones, which may feel slightly sensitive to begin with. As your complexion heals and repairs the appearance will become clearer and more radiant, as well as working from within to create a fuller, firmer, more youthful look.

FAQs

Am I suitable for Sciton?

This treatment may be suitable for men and women who feel their appearance is showing signs of ageing or where surface layers of the skin have been damaged. A tired, dull or aggravated appearance can often cause a person to feel unhappy with their look, seeking a treatment that can help to restore their natural glow and rejuvenate their youthful features. A consultation at NassifMD will recommend if Sciton is right for you.

Is Sciton Safe?

As a non-surgical procedure, Sciton is considered to be safe for most patients to undergo. There are certain contraindications that may mean an increased risk of developing adverse effects, including: frequently experiencing cold sores, having taken roaccutane (accutane) in the last 6 months and those who have an existing skin irritation or infection.

Will it hurt?

The treatment itself is generally very well tolerated by most patients. You may feel a warming sensation while the procedure is in process, and your comfort will be closely monitored throughout.

Are there any side effects or risks?

The face may look a little swollen, following the treatment, which may last for a couple of days. The shedding process will last for around 3 or 4 days and it is important that you resist the urge to pick at any flakes or crusts that form on the skin.
Your practitioner can give you advice on appropriate skincare to use after the treatment, and for continued use in the future.

How much downtime can I expect?

Downtime is typically very minimal, and many patients are able to continue with their usual daily routine. You may need to take extra care with your skin following the treatment and any flaking of the skin should be minimal and hard to notice.
