HALO laser treatment is one of our favorite treatments. As the very first hybrid laser, it can achieve greater correction and results with significantly less downtime and discomfort. A single HALO treatment can help to reverse fine lines, wrinkles, pores and sun damage while simultaneously lifting the skin to reveal a smoother, brighter and more youthful complexion.
HALO uses laser technology to eliminate years of damage by triggering your body’s natural healing response and reveal the luminous glow you had when you were younger!
HALO laser technology offers a completely customizable treatment to precisely target skin damage and visible signs of aging. We offer our HALO Soft treatment for a refresh to our traditional HALO at many different depths for deeper concerns.
Skin Appeal is the FIRST office to offer this revolutionary technology!
How HALO works
The HALO is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It is a high-end laser that simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to target your skin concerns on multiple levels. An ablative laser is one of the most effective treatments for improving the signs of aging. By removing the outer layers of damaged skin collagen production and restructuring is increased, leaving tighter, smoother, more radiant and even toned skin
What to expect during your HALO Treatment
After a thorough explanation of post treatment expectations and instructions, a topical numbing cream will be applied. You will numb for 1 hour. Most patients do well with just the topical numbing but you may also add Pronox to help minimize discomfort, if desired.
Immediately prior to treatment, your topical numbing will be removed and the skin will be wiped clean. At Skin Appeal, we enhance your HALO treatment with a photofacial BBL to optimize results. For the BBL, ultrasound gel will be applied and the BBL will snap on the skin like a rubberband. The ultrasound gel will then be removed and the HALO treatment will begin. HALO laser rolls back and forth over the skin and feels like a sparkler. After the treatment, you will feel like you have a sunburn for about 2 hours and there is no discomfort beyond this.
The HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser focuses energy on the deeper collagen layer of skin leaving the surface of your skin largely intact for a quicker healing time. It delivers the results of an ablative procedure with less downtime (4-6 days mild red, flaky skin), like a non-ablative treatment. The best of both worlds!
The recovery after a HALO laser is minimal compared to other resurfacing lasers due to the state of art technology and the inclusion of medical grade post procedure care products. Most patients experience swelling, redness, dryness, and flaking for 4-7 days. The intensity of the treatment ultimately determines the amount of downtime.
Typical Results From HALO
By triggering the skin’s natural healing response, you will see improvements in the overall appearance of the skin in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, visible pore size, improved skin reflectivity and restoration of your youthful glow. You will see some improvement in the first 2 weeks, but will continue to notice improvement up to 6 months later.
As an integral part of many patients’ long-term skin maintenance plan, the powerful results of HALO can be used to improve skin texture and clarity; restore a youthful glow; and even help delay or eliminate the need for surgical procedures. For long-term results and skin maintenance, a proper skin care regimen is necessary to protect from UV damage, stimulate collagen production and encourage natural exfoliation. Pair any of our treatments with Mikel Kristi Skin Care for optimal long-term results and anti-aging.
One treatment of HALO with the Skin Appeal Way, reveals outstanding results. If you have deeper wrinkles or want more significant skin tightening, then having a second treatment 4-6 weeks later will dramatically enhance your result. You can also combine HALO with other treaments like Neogen Nitrogen Plasma Resurfacing, Virtue RF Microneedling and Agnes. We will help you decide which treatments are best to achieve your goals.
