7 Reasons to Try Halo Laser Treatment

Posted on December 25, 2019

Halo is a hybrid fractional laser treatment offered by the Center for Dermatology and Aesthetic Medicine. This laser treatment resurfaces the skin, delivering both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to remove damaged outer layers. Because Halo ultimately results in a new, unblemished skin surface, it can be used to treat a variety of concerns. Here are seven reasons to try Halo laser treatment.


  1. Precisely target skin damage

Halo technology can be focused on specific target areas. The treatment can be used to repair uneven skin texture, improve skin laxity, lessen the appearance of wrinkles, and create a more even skin tone.

  1. Low downtime

Unlike more invasive procedures, like facelifts, Halo treatment requires low downtime. Most patients are able to return to work within a few days.

  1. More comfortable than traditional fractional resurfacing

During Halo treatment, Dr. Kalimullah or Dr. Cavanaugh will use a numbing cream to ensure the procedure is comfortable. After the treatment, a cold air fan and water mist are used to keep the skin cool as the heat from the laser dissipates.

  1. Fast healing

Healing from Halo treatment is relatively minimal. As the skin heals, the outer layer will dry and fall away from your face. Patients are typically able to apply makeup within 24 hours of receiving the treatment.

  1. Short treatment times

The Halo procedure itself typically only takes about 45 minutes. In total, most patients are only in the office for about two to three hours when receiving Halo.

  1. Fewer sessions required

Traditional fractional resurfacing requires five or six sessions to achieve optimal final results. Typically, Halo treatments can be completed in as little as 1-2 sessions.

  1. Revise scars

Halo can be used to revise scars throughout the face and body, including acne scarring.
