Sciton® Halo™ Reviews
"Teresa is incredibly helpful, professional, and skilled at what she does. She was able to customize a treatment plan for me and get excellent results in all areas of my skin care concerns. My redness and rosacea have been completely eliminated and I have never been happier with my skin. She went way above and beyond providing advice and education, and was available to discuss any questions or concerns I had. I can’t recommend her highly enough. Thank you the wonderful service!"- A.R. / Google / Mar 29, 2023

"I see Dr Metzenger for skin cancer spots and she and her staff are always nice helpful and knowledgeable about my skin care. She has frozen many places on my arms and face and done a few biopsies and surgery on a few bad moles. I always feel comfortable in her care and the office staff is great to work with. If you have moles and/or age type skin spots, I recommend this place highly."- J.D. / Google / Aug 25, 2023

"I had my first Diamond-Glo on Tuesday and it was wonderful. Kim extracted spots I have had for long time. And, the Halo Procedure didn’t address the issue I had last year. Everyone at Sonterra Dermatology are very pleasant and professional. Ask for Kim and you will not be disappointed!!!!!!"- C.P. / Google / Jan 25, 2024
Halo Technology for Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Halo application on the Sciton system is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser with the 1470 nm laser for non-ablative treatments in the deeper layers of the skin and the 2940 nm laser for ablative resurfacing on the surface of the skin. Halo laser skin resurfacing can improve the quality, texture, and overall appearance of the skin from years of environmental damage (sun exposure, smoking). The Halo laser application can treat several skin conditions, such as:
- Scar Revision
- Skin Firming
- Skin Resurfacing
- Skin Texture Improvement
Laser Skin Resurfacing Procedure Information
Halo laser treatments are performed in the office as an outpatient procedure with the patient under no or local anesthesia. The patient’s eyes will be protected as the laser wand is passed over the face, neck, chest, and/or hands. After the treatment, a protective ointment will be applied over the skin before the patient leaves to recover at home.
What to Expect from Laser Skin Resurfacing
You may see redness and peeling for 1 – 2 weeks after your treatment as the skin forms a scab and begins to heal. In 2 – 8 weeks after the procedure, you should be able to wear makeup to camouflage your skin. You should use sun protection at all times after your treatment and limit direct sun exposure as much as possible. You should talk to Dr. Garcia about when to schedule touch-up appointments and creating a good home skin care routine.
