Get the Halo Glow:
Buckingham Center in Austin, TX, offers nonsurgical, Halo™ Laser rejuvenation by Sciton. The Halo™ Laser treatment is unique because it uses tunable, dual non-ablative and ablative wavelengths. This laser technology allows board-certified, facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Edward Buckingham and his nurses, to customize each treatment to accommodate the exact needs of his patient as they pertain to degrees of sun damage, skin texture, tone and desired downtime.
Halo™ Laser is the first- and the only- hybrid fractional laser that features tunable wavelengths. Its exceptional results are getting the attention of men and women in the United States and abroad. The Halo™ treatment restores a youthful vibrancy to the skin, known as the Halo™ glow.
What is Halo™ Laser?
Halo™ Laser is a customizable, nonsurgical treatment for sunspots, fine lines, wrinkles, poor skin texture and the improvement of large pores. Halo™ Laser uses a combination of laser wavelengths to improve superficial and deeper levels of dermal pigmentation and to produce significant improvements in skin tone and texture. The Halo™ glow is an outcome achieved with this rejuvenation process.
The results are long lasting, and the downtime can be controlled to match each patient’s availability and schedule restrictions by using several small treatments spaced apart or completing an intense treatment that achieves maximum results in just one treatment.
The Halo™ Laser treatment is an excellent option for men and women with rough or uneven skin texture, pigment discoloration, decreased tone, large pores, dull skin with a lack of luster or shine, fine lines and wrinkles.
The Halo™ Laser treatment provides comparable rejuvenation results without the downtime experienced with more aggressive procedures. Dr. Buckingham recommends Halo™ to individuals seeking a nonsurgical treatment that provides long-lasting results of up to two years.
Good Candidates for Halo™ Laser
Most men and women who desire to improve the appearance of their skin, decrease oversized pores, minimize wrinkles and fine lines, treat uneven skin tone and improve their skin’s texture can expect to achieve excellent results with Halo™ Laser.

Halo™ Laser Results
The Halo™ Laser treatment provides a complete facial rejuvenation that repairs visible signs of aging, skin discoloration, sun damage, enlarged pores and uneven skin tone. A significant improvement in your skin’s tone, texture, reflectivity and glow are achievable with one or more Halo™ treatment. Dr. Buckingham will recommend a series of treatments if they are needed.
In just two to three days, the initial Halo™ results will begin to appear. The complete results will appear progressively over the next few months. The skin rejuvenation results will last for several years with proper care, such as avoiding sun damage.
Halo™ Laser Treatment Process
A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin 30 to 60 minutes before the treatment, which will gently numb the skin. One of the highly trained nurses then rolls the Halo™ handpiece over the top layer of the facial skin. Wavelengths will treat each layer of the skin, and a natural healing process will be triggered deep within the skin.
Halo™ has integrated cooling technology that maintains a comfortable temperature. Discomfort is mild to moderate and described as tingling and heat. Halo™ also uses motion tracking technology, which ensures that the entire area receives treatment. It then alerts when the Halo™ treatment is complete.
Halo™ provides consistent results. Visible sun damage and signs of aging, as-well-as deeper levels of damage will be treated. Pigment from deeper layers of damaged skin will surface and peel, revealing the new, rejuvenated skin.

Possible Side Effects:
Swelling and redness are side effects of the Halo™ laser treatment. It is best to avoid sleeping either on your side or flat on your back for the first few days after the treatment. Elevating your head will significantly minimize possible swelling, such as sleeping in a chair. Ibuprofen, Benadryl, and ice will treat discomfort or swelling.
It is important to note that swelling will not affect the positive results achieved with Halo™. A steroid may be prescribed to treat excess swelling. Dr. Buckingham and his nurses will discuss any possible risks or side effects with you and will only recommend this treatment if you are found to be a good match.
- Stop using Retin-A, Renova, Differin, for one week prior to treatment and do not resume for one week after treatment.
- Avoid sun exposure, tanning beds and sunless/self tanning lotions for 2 weeks prior to and throughout the course of your treatments.
It is important that your skin remains its natural color without any tanning.
In order to avoid tanning, a broad spectrum (UVA/UVB) sunblock with an SPF of 30 must be applied 15 minutes prior to casual sun exposure. Prolonged sun exposure requires repeated applications of sunblock every 2 hours. Sun block must be reapplied after swimming. If sun exposure is unavoidable, more treatment sessions may be needed to achieve the desired results as lower settings must be used to protect sun-exposed skin.Recent sun exposure that causes tanning may result in cancellation of the treatment in order to avoid complications.
- Please inform us if you have any history of “herpes”, “cold sores”, or “fever blisters”.In such instances, Valtrex may be prescribed prior to treatment. Like sunlight, laser light may cause a cold sore or fever blister leading to more serious complications.
- If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us without hesitation.
