HALO LASER RESURFACING
What is HALO?
HALO is a revolutionary laser treatment that combines two types of lasers - ablative and non-ablative - for exceptional results in enhancing skin quality with minimal downtime. HALO is a minimally invasive treatment that can be used to address skin conditions, including wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, enlarged pores, scars, and other signs of aging or skin damage.
Am I a candidate for HALO?
HALO works to rejuvenate your skin by targeting the precise depth of skin necessary to trigger skin health and regeneration. HALO is also appropriate for younger skin, addressing complaints such as enlarged pores and poor skin texture. HALO is suitable for all skin types on both the face and body. It is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment that addresses a wide variety of skin conditions, including:
Fine Lines & Wrinkles
Scars (including Acne Scars)
Signs of Aging
Uneven Skin Tone
What are the benefits of HALO?
The dual laser action of HALO means that several layers of skin can be treated simultaneously for faster and more consistent results. Results from one to two treatments are comparable to five or six treatments of traditional skin resurfacing. You can also get the benefits of more intensive treatments with faster recovery and a superior outcome. HALO treatments are also highly customizable, which allows your provider to tailor your treatment to your skin type and personal aesthetic goals, which will enhance and restore your skin quality and appearance.
What will happen during your HALO procedure?
HALO is a minimally invasive procedure requiring only a topical anesthetic. Once the numbing cream has taken effect, the treatment generally takes 30 to 45 minutes, depending on the areas being treated. During your HALO procedure, you may experience a feeling of heat and a pricking sensation. Immediately after the treatment it is expected to feel like a moderate to severe sunburn, which typically only lasts for 1-2 hours.
What to expect after your HALO procedure?
For the first 24 hours after your treatment, you will need to keep your skin protected and free of makeup. Redness and swelling are expected immediately after your treatment, and typically lasts for 3-5 days. Redness can persist for up to 2 weeks depending on the treatment.
The day after the treatment microscopic epidermal necrotic debris (MENDS) will appear as tiny dark spots or as a bronzed appearance to the treated skin. MENDS are a part of the healing process where treated tissue is working its way out of the body as new fresh skin is regenerated. During this time, the skin will be very dry and feel rough before flaking and peeling. It is recommended to keep the skin well moisturized at this time to support the healing process.
As your skin regenerates, it will continue to improve for months. These results will last for years and can be enhanced or maintained with additional HALO treatments.
What is the difference between HALO and other Laser treatments?
HALO is reported to be more beneficial but less painful than other fractional resurfacing lasers. HALO is:
More effective than any stand-alone ablative or non-ablative lasers.
Requires much less downtime compared to other resurfacing lasers currently on the market.
While nerve blocks are commonly used for fractional laser resurfacing treatments, HALO requires only a topical anesthetic.
Most fractional laser treatments take several weeks for notable results. Many patients report results the same week following the HALO procedure.
