What is Halo™?
Halo™ is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment using a hybrid fractional laser.
Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and lose that natural healthy glow. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo™ does away with years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo™ restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
What results can I expect?
You will see improvements in overall tone and texture of your skin in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow.
How many treatments do you need?
What’s great about Halo™ is that you can choose how many treatments you want! You can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.
What happens during the treatment?
Thirty minutes to an hour before your treatment we place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. We treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
Does Halo™ hurt?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most of our patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
For the first 24 hours you should keep your skin protected according to our instructions, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours your skin will begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin will peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
When will I see results?
You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo™ treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
How long will my results last?
Your Halo™ results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo™ treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
