Halo Hybrid Laser
The Sciton Halo is the world’s first ever hybrid fractional laser. The Halo is essentially a combination of two lasers, one non-ablative (coagulating affected tissue), and one ablative (vaporizing away the affected tissue). Quintessa is so excited to be one of only a few providers in Wisconsin to offer Halo Laser treatments to our patients.
Benefits of the Halo Fractional Laser:
- Improves the skin‘s tone and laxity
- Smoothes and softens the skin’s texture
- Addresses sun damaged areas
- Reduces deep areas of hyperpigmentation
- Eliminates epidermal dark spots
- Diminishes the look of large pores
- Erases fine lines and wrinkles
- Requires less downtime than similar laser treatments
- The laser energy level can be adjusted for each individual patient
A Halo Fractional Laser treatment at Quintessa will take less than an hour to perform. Since the Halo hand piece is made with an integrated cooling mechanism, procedures are not considered painful. A topical anesthetic is typically applied prior to the treatment to improve a patient’s comfort level.
During the treatment, the provider gently moves the Halo hand piece across the treatment area, emitting quick bursts of laser energy. These blasts create a series of tiny holes in the surface of the tissue, which in turn spark the body’s natural healing process. The old, dull tissue is eventually sloughed away, allowing fresh, glowing skin to break through. The skin’s collagen supply will also be slowly replenished, further improving the appearance over the following months.
IS THE HALO LASER RIGHT FOR YOU?
Patients looking to improve their appearance and reverse the early signs of aging may find the Halo Laser to be beneficial. The ideal candidate is in generally good health, understands the fractional laser treatment, and holds reasonable expectations for their results.

Halo laser treatment vs. Nanopeel: How do they differ?
This is a very broad question, but generally speaking, Halo laser treatment is going to improve the texture and wrinkles of the skin while the Nanopeel really just helps the visible photodamage of the skin, improving some of the browns and a little texture. If you have a lot of browns and reds in the skin, we recommend a broad band light (BBL) treatment. If you need improvement in wrinkles, then we would recommend Halo. In fact, many of our patients combine these procedures to get the best result.
Can Halo laser treatment affect Voluma?
No, Halo laser treatment won't affect Voluma at all. Halo is a fantastic way to improve the quality of the skin and has minimal downtime. The treatment penetrates into the skin, but not through it. Voluma is placed under the skin, usually rather deep, so the Halo treatment can't affect the Voluma at all.
Can Halo laser treatment be used for acne scars?
With the Halo laser, we are getting better results with fewer treatments. We would highly recommend Halo laser treatment for acne scarring.Read More
