How Does Halo Work?
Halo is the first hybrid fractional laser, meaning it delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths at the same time.
Ablative lasers have been considered one of the most effective laser treatments to improve common signs of aging, by removing damaged outer layers of skin. Unfortunately, ablative lasers typically require a lengthy downtime of one to two weeks. Non-ablative laser treatments are less-invasive than ablative, carrying minimal downtime. This treatment involves heating up the epidermis of the skin, and generally several laser sessions are required.
The combination approach of the Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser incorporates the best of both worlds. It focuses energy deep to the skin’s collagen layer, while leaving the surface of your skin unharmed for effective results and a shorter recovery time.
What to Expect with the Halo Treatment
Depending on your cosmetic needs, your in-office appointment will last anywhere between two to three hours. First, a numbing cream will be applied to make sure you are comfortable during and after the laser resurfacing. The Halo treatment itself should not last longer than 45 minutes. After treatment, a cold air fan and water mist will help cool down and dissipate heat from your skin before you can return home.
After treatment, you may experience extremely warm skin on the treatment area for up to 24 hours post-op. Our board-certified dermatologists recommend cold compresses to calm your skin and help reduce any swelling and redness that occurs. Around the second or third day after Halo, you will notice tiny dark spots and a darker complexion, which is part of the skin’s natural healing process where new, undamaged skin is regenerated. Your skin will begin to flake and peel, which may last up to one week.
After your skin is finished healing, Halo creates beautiful results, with smoother, vibrant skin! The Halo treatment is customizable to precisely target skin damage, improve the appearance of skin’s tone, texture, and wrinkles, reduce pore size, and ultimately make your inner glow shine through.
