Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser

The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser by Sciton® is a skin rejuvenation treatment that combines two types of wavelengths—ablative and non-ablative—to produce the best results with minimal downtime. On their own, ablative laser treatments can produce dramatic results, but only at the cost of pain, lengthy downtime, and greater risks. Non-ablative laser treatments are less invasive, more comfortable, and have a faster healing time, but their results are so subtle that multiple treatment sessions are necessary. The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser is the best of both worlds and produces ablative results with the minimal downtime of a non-ablative procedure.

Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., innovator of photorejuvenation treatments and developer of the FotoFacial®, offers this revolutionary laser treatment to combat aging and restore a healthy, luminous glow to your complexion.

Benefits of Halo™

  • Improves sun damage, fine lines, discoloration, and pore size
  • Reveals a brighter skin tone with a brilliant glow
  • Noticeable results in just one or two treatments
  • Fast healing time
  • Improved comfort during treatment
  • Long-lasting results


Halo™ treatments may begin with the application of a numbing cream on the treatment area. Once the skin is prepared, the laser handpiece is rolled evenly over the skin, and the laser energy penetrates through to the dermal layer. Halo™ uses controlled and precise laser wavelengths to target the proper skin depth. Dynamic thermal optimization (DTO) technology is built into Halo™ to automatically adjust the energy output according to the temperature of the patient’s skin, making the treatment precise, consistent, and safe. The treatment lasts approximately 20 minutes. Most patients feel that it is generally comfortable and has a warming sensation with an occasional prickling feeling.

Some patients will need just one or two aggressive treatments, while others may need several less aggressive treatment sessions over time. Dr. Bitter will customize your Halo™ treatment for your needs. He may recommend combining multiple treatments, such as broadband light (BBL) and Halo™ fractional laser treatment, to produce the best results.


As a long-time pioneer in the use of light technology for skin rejuvenation, Dr. Bitter is extremely pleased with the results of his Halo™ treatments and how they have benefited his patients. Within just a few days after the treatment, the skin peels, revealing luminous, healthy skin beneath. Gradual improvements are seen over the weeks and months that pass. The Halo™ laser anti-aging treatment offers remarkable results that may last for years.

Dr. Patrick Bitter, Jr., world-renowned and board-certified dermatologist, is the creator of the FotoFacial®. In addition to his successes with intense pulsed light, Dr. Bitter uses the Halo™ hybrid fractional laser to rejuvenate the skin, guard against aging, and restore a youthful, brilliant complexion.
