What is Halo?

Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure, environmental conditions and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and a dull, drab complexion. Previous lasers were either too shallow or too deep to effectively remove this damage. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting different layers of the skin. Halo is a Hybrid Fractional Laser resurfacing treatment that delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to create a synergistic effect. It is the first treatment of its kind. Combining both non-ablative and ablative technologies makes Halo a uniquely effective option for a range of concerns including signs of aging, uneven skin tone, acne scars, and more. Halo restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger and precisely targets years of damage to your skin.

Who is a Good Candidate for Halo?

Halo hybrid fractional laser is an appropriate treatment for all skin types. It is especially beneficial for those who have darker skin tones who are usually disqualified from other laser treatments. Halo’s technology targets precise imperfections in the scan using motion-tracking, which allows it to be a safer and more effective option for patients of varying skin tones. Patients may turn to Halo if they have skin concerns such as:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage and sunspots
  • Poor or rough skin texture
  • Acne
  • Acne scars or other scarring
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Enlarged Pores

The Halo Procedure

The first step of a Halo procedure is thoroughly cleansing the skin and applying a numbing cream to ensure that you are comfortable throughout treatment. Next, you will be given protective eyewear. The Halo device handpiece will then be rolled along the treatment area in small sections. This delivers the ablative and non-ablative laser wavelengths to the skin, creating small channels in the skin and removing dead skin cells or debris. Throughout the process, you should not feel pain, but a sensation of heat is normal.

Recovery and Results from Halo

After Halo treatment, you will notice redness and some slight swelling. Small red or brown spots may also be visible on the skin; these are a result of the small channels created in the skin as a result of the ablative wavelengths. Your skin will likely also feel dry and somewhat rough to the touch. On average, these side effects last up to five days, but may subside in as little as two days after treatment. You should take care to avoid sun exposure as much as possible following your Halo treatment, and wear SPF 30+ at all times. When the healing process is complete, you will notice smoother and younger-looking skin with improved texture and tone.
