Halo Laser

Home » Lasers » Halo Laser

The Halo Laser represents a cutting-edge advancement in cosmetic skin treatment, combining ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to target skin imperfections. It effectively reduces signs of aging, sun damage, and discoloration, offering a rejuvenated complexion with minimal downtime, making it a popular choice for those seeking youthful, radiant skin.

What is a Halo Laser?

Halo Laser is a hybrid fractional laser that revolutionizes skin resurfacing. It uniquely blends two types of lasers to treat the top layer and deeper tissues of the skin. This dual-wavelength approach addresses surface blemishes and promotes collagen regeneration, tackling fine lines, wrinkles, and scars. With its precision and reduced healing time, Halo Laser provides a comprehensive solution for skin rejuvenation.

How Does the Halo Laser Work?

The Halo Laser emits a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths of laser. The ablative laser creates micro-injuries on the skin’s surface, prompting natural healing and cell renewal, while the non-ablative laser penetrates deeper, heating the underlying skin layers to stimulate collagen production. This synergistic effect encourages more efficient healing, leading to smoother, firmer, and clearer skin with minimal downtime.

How Long Are Halo Laser Treatments?

Halo Laser treatments are remarkably efficient, typically requiring about 20 to 30 minutes per session, depending on the targeted area’s size and condition. However, additional time for pre-treatment preparation and post-treatment care should be considered. Most individuals experience significant improvements with one to two treatments spaced weeks apart.

How Long Is Recovery After Halo Laser Treatment?

Recovery after a Halo Laser treatment is impressively swift compared to other resurfacing methods. Patients typically experience mild swelling and redness for the first 24 to 48 hours. The skin may then begin to peel, revealing a fresher layer beneath, a process that can last 5 to 7 days. Most people resume normal activities within a few days, but strenuous workouts and direct sunlight should be avoided for a week or two.

Are Halo Laser Treatments Painful?

Halo Laser treatments are generally well-tolerated. Patients often describe the sensation as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling. To minimize discomfort, a topical anesthetic is applied before the procedure. Cooling mechanisms within the device also help soothe the skin during treatment. Post-treatment, any mild discomfort typically subsides within a few hours.

What Regions Are Treatable With Halo Laser?

Halo Laser is a versatile solution for the face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. It’s particularly adept at addressing facial concerns but also rejuvenates sun-damaged and aging skin on other parts of the body, such as the neck and chest.

What Should I Anticipate Before The Treatment?

Before your treatment, you’ll have a consultation to discuss your skin concerns and treatment goals. Avoid sun exposure, tanning, and certain skincare products as advised by your provider. You may be instructed to stop using medications or supplements that increase the risk of bleeding. On the day of the procedure, arrive with clean skin, free of makeup or lotions.

What To Expect After Halo Laser Treatment?

After your Halo Laser treatment, you may expect redness and a warm sensation, similar to a sunburn, for the first few hours. Swelling is common and may last a few days. Your skin will begin to peel around day three, revealing new, radiant skin beneath. It’s crucial to follow a gentle skincare routine, avoid direct sun exposure, and use high-SPF sunscreen.
