Skin Treatment

Sciton Halo Laser

The Halo™ Laser by Sciton is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser.

This is a two-in-one laser treatment, delivering the best of both worlds, Halo has the unique ability to provide surface renewal while simultaneously providing deep dermal restoration.

Combining these two wavelengths creates a strong synergistic effect, for corrective results without the downtime of traditional ablative lasers.


What is Ablative?

Ablative lasers are used to target surface irregularities by removing the outermost layers of damaged and dead skin. Ablative laser resurfacing addresses visible skin imperfections including sun damage, uneven pigmentation, and poor texture.

What is Non-Ablative?

Non-ablative laser treatments have a deeper focus and are able to harmlessly pass through the skin’s upper layers and heat the deeper, underlying dermal tissues. Working inward out, non-ablative laser resurfacing encourages collagen growth to subtly tighten, firm, and lift the skin from within, a process known as remodelling. The results from this treatment can become increasingly apparent over weeks and months.


The Halo™ Laser Treatment is a skin resurfacing procedure, so it will help reduce or eliminate any of the following types of skin damage:

  • Skin discoloration
  • Skin texture
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Sun damage or sunspots (dyschromia)
  • Age spots or age lines
  • Uneven skin tones
  • Poor skin texture
  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Scarring including acne scars
  • Medical dermatology/Actinic Keratoses


Some laser treatments are only effective for men and women with lighter pigment skin complexions. This is because the laser targets visible skin imperfections, some of which are more easily overlooked with darker skin tones.

Halo is different. By using a motion-tracking technology to measure your face beforehand, the laser can scan and target imperfections deep within the epidermis — even imperfections that would not be visible to the naked eye. Because of this, it is effective for all ages, all skin types, and all complexions.


You will see a significant removal of age spots, areas of uneven pigmentation, and other sun damage. The overall tone and texture will improve. You’ll also see a reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size, and an overall improvement in your skin’s vibrancy.

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.

I have been to see Amanda a few times now to help with the appearance of my acne scarring and redness. On my first appointment we had a very very thorough consultation which I really appreciated. I then went onto have halo and profractional laser, the aftercare was amazing and she was always on hand to answer any queries over message on her weekend! I have recently been for a checkup where I had more treatment in her own time just so I can get the best results possible. You're in extremely good hands at nassif med spa, everything is amazing from the second you walk through the door. I have had a lot of people curious about what I'm doing too. Thankyou!

The Hydrafacial Platinum was absolutely fantastic, hands down the best facial I have ever had. My skin felt gorgeous afterwards and the whole experience was relaxing and rejuvenating. Nina was lovely, friendly and explained each stage, which was very reassuring. Amanda and Andi were so welcoming and professional. The clinic is beautifully clean and well presented. I will be back and have already recommended them and this particular treatment to friends and family. Thank you!

An excellent clinic, highly recommended! I visited Nassif Medspa initially for BBL treatment, but soon progressed to Moxi and Hydrafacial treatments. Amanda is a consummate professional, who listened to my (difficult) in-depth journey, and made recommendations to help. My skin has never looked better! Her attention to detail is second-to-none; Amanda genuinely puts time, energy, and her soul into her work, and it really shows. Shout out to the lovely Andy and Nina too. A great clinic with awesome vibes. Big thumbs up! A++++++++++++++++++
