The Halo™ laser treatment uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative laser technology to precisely target problem areas on your skin, resulting in an even, more smooth complexion. Whether your skin has been affected by long-term sun exposure, an active lifestyle or you are simply experiencing the inevitable signs of aging, the Halo™ laser treatment is a safe and effective way to heal and rejuvenate your skin.
What will the Halo™ laser do for me?
If you’ve considered a laser procedure to refine and tighten your skin, you’ve likely had to choose between two types of treatments. The first type of treatment may offer quick and noticeable results, but requires several days of downtime, and the other may offer less downtime, but requires multiple treatments and delayed results.
However, with the emergence of the Halo™ laser treatment, the days of choosing between outcome and downtime are over. By combining ablative (destroying tissue) and non-ablative laser techniques, the Halo™ laser applies wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize results and minimize recovery time. By choosing the Halo™ laser to address your skin’s needs, you can smooth, tighten and rejuvenate your skin to achieve optimal results not offered by other laser treatments.
What makes the Halo™ laser different from other laser treatments?
Double Wavelength Treatment
The Halo™ laser is a dual-fractionated laser, meaning it features two different wavelengths that are engaged simultaneously. While other lasers primarily focus on single wavelength treatments, the Halo™ laser provides the refining benefits of an ablative laser at the same time as the firming, collagen-boosting benefits of a non-ablative laser. This increases the effectiveness of your treatment and requires minimal downtime.
The Halo™ laser functions as a ‘tunable’ dual fractionated laser, the only one of its kind. This allows for a customized treatment that targets your skin’s specific needs. Some popular examples include pore-reduction, deeper firming of the face and neck and/or reduction of brown spots. No matter your treatment goals, the Halo™ laser will be tailored to your skin to achieve your desired outcome.
Recovery from the treatment requires minimal downtime and post-treatment steps. For instance, you don’t need to apply any ointment to your face post-treatment or you can wear makeup, and most patients will return to their normal routines one to two days following treatment.
What should I expect after a treatment?
While everyone is different, most patients experience swelling under their eyes the first few mornings after their Halo™ laser treatment; however, swelling improves as the day goes on.
You will also experience a subtle texture (similar to fine sandpaper), known as micro epidermal necrotic debris (MENDS), that will appear between day one and day three post-treatment. By day four or five after your treatment, the MENDS will naturally disappear, revealing brighter and clearer skin.
No matter the intensity of your Halo™ laser, you should plan to be fully recovered about five to six days after treatment.
What are the benefits of the Halo™ laser treatment?
The Halo™ laser treatment can benefit your skin in the following ways:
- Skin firming, smoothing and tightening
- Treatment of deep sun damage
- Reduction of pores and acne breakouts
- Reduction of excessive dryness
- Reduction of age spots, fine lines and wrinkles
- Increased luminosity ( “Halo Glow”)
Leading the way in laser treatments, the Halo™ laser improves the appearance of all skin types safely and effectively, no matter the condition. By choosing the Halo™ laser, you can expect an individualized treatment, minimal recovery time and immediate results to achieve the skin you’ve always wanted.
