What is HALO?
Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, meaning it can deliver both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same treatment area. That’s important because it gives patients the benefits of more aggressive ablative laser treatments with the shorter downtime associated with non-ablative lasers. The ablative feature treats the skin’s outer layer, the epidermis, while the non-ablative function treats the thick, deeper layer of skin called the dermis.
HALO uses a sophisticated tool that precisely senses how much laser light pressure and frequency your skin requires to break down the damaged epidermis and pave the way for new growth. It’s safe, effective, and well-tolerated by patients.
HALO is a complete skin revitalization laser treatment. You will see overall improvements in your skin including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, improved skin reflectivity and glow, and significant removal of discoloration.
What can I expect?
We recommend doing our Prescription grade topical numbing for an hour prior to the procedure. The treatment procedure time ranges from 20-30 minutes depending on the size of the area being treated. We offer all of our patients the use The Pro-Nox™ Aesthetic System; commonly known as laughing gas, during their procedure(s) to ensure our patients feel comfortable and confident during their procedure(s).
During the procedure patients can expect to experience mild to moderate discomfort and will have a warm sunburned sensation when leaving the office. Patients will have mild to moderate swelling over the next 1-2 days depending on treatment intensity with scaling and redness for a few days post procedure up to a week.
Am I a Good Candidate
HALO treatments can be performed on and off the face in skin types I-VI for BOTH men and women.
