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:

  • Discoloration

  • Sun Damage

  • Hyperpigmentation

  • Enlarged Pores

  • 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, chosen to 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 slight pricking sensation. It should not be painful, and most patients experience minimal discomfort due to the integrated cooling technology. 

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.  You can then return to your usual activities. Your skin will begin to peel, and after two to three days, you may start to notice a slight bronzing. When your skin stops peeling after three or four days, you will see new skin appearing. 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.
