How Does the Halo Laser Work?
Halo is a hybrid fractional laser—meaning it combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths that target both the top layer of your skin and the deeper tissue underneath the surface for a powerful skin rejuvenation treatment. Fractional lasers such as Halo create pinpoint channels in the skin while leaving surrounding areas intact, shortening the recovery time to just a few days compared to a couple of weeks for other laser skin resurfacing treatments.
Halo’s two wavelengths repair signs of aging and sun damage—discoloration, enlarged pores, uneven skin tone—on your skin’s surface while heating the tissue below the surface to stimulate collagen production for firmer, smoother skin over time. Combining the two wavelengths minimizes healing time without sacrificing results.
The benefits of a Halo laser skin rejuvenation treatment include:
- Customizable treatment to precisely target skin damage
- Improvement in the appearance of tone, texture, and fine lines
- Reduced pore size and increased reflectivity and glow
- Flexibility in treatment levels and downtime
And most patients see initial results—the Halo glow—in as few as 5 to 7 days.
What Happens During Recovery?
During the first few hours after a Halo treatment, patients can expect to feel a slight stinging sensation that ice packs can soothe. Peeling, flaking, itching, swelling, and redness are all normal on the first day after the treatment. Brown spots may darken during the first 2 days before the skin begins healing and the improved skin texture and tone become noticeable.
“Megan was the nurse who did my Halo treatment. She was reassuring, professional and kind. I felt informed at every step of the process and found that the “down time” afterward was not at all difficult. I decided on Halo to remove damage from my skin, but i have found it has other benefits. I no longer suffer from dryness and my skin both looks and feels healthier.”
