If you’re looking for ways to transform your skin, then you might be surprised to learn that laser technologies are some of the most advanced and effective treatments available. At our Portland, OR office, Dr. Michael Bohley offers the Sciton® Halo Laser, your best option for clearer, more radiant skin. Here’s what to know about it and how you can achieve your best skin yet with just a couple of sessions.

Halo’s dual-wavelength technology transforms your skin

Halo uses both ablative and non-ablative energy, meaning it resurfaces the top layer of the skin while also stimulating the contraction and regeneration of the deeper layers of the skin. This can be an incredibly effective combination versus other, singular laser platforms. In fact, because of this dual approach, it can treat about 25-30% of the skin’s depth versus only 5% of other laser treatments. You can see results in as little as 2 days with Halo, making it one of the best investments for your skin short of surgery.

Halo produces dramatic results with just one treatment

Because of Halo’s high-powered approach to skin rejuvenation, most patients require only 1-2 treatments to see noticeable improvement. Although Halo comes at a higher cost, it’s a worthwhile option if you want to avoid surgery or you have a busy schedule. Additionally, Halo can produce transformative, long-lasting results (as long as you maintain an effective at-home skincare regimen) whereas it might take you 3-4 chemical peel sessions to produce the same level of transformation. Over time, Halo can actually save you valuable time and money despite the higher up-front cost.

Halo is an all-in-one treatment for skin concerns

Because of Halo’s dual-wavelength technology, it can treat a wide variety of skin concerns. These can include:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Skin laxity and folds
  • Pigmentation and discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Scars and acne scars
  • Visible pores
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Dryness and texture

The best part is that Halo is an effective option for all skin types and tones. Certain laser platforms are not indicated for darker skin tones because of the increased pigmentation which makes it more difficult for laser energy to target specific imperfections. Halo’s scanning technology can more effectively target concerns in darker skin tones, making it an excellent option for virtually anyone.
