What Is HALO™?
Halo™ is a laser resurfacing treatment that can provide comprehensive skin rejuvenation with incredible precision and minimal downtime. The Halo™ system utilizes a hybrid fractional laser that can emit both ablative (tissue removal) and non-ablative (no tissue removal) wavelengths.
The Halo™ system has adjustable energy levels, which means your treatment can be customized to suit your needs. The process is quick, comfortable, and provides consistent results. The precision of the system also allows for a shorter recovery period.
How Does the Treatment Work?
Halo™ uses two different laser wavelengths to simultaneously target the outer layer (epidermis) and deeper layers (dermis) of the skin. As the handpiece is passed over the treatment site, the light energy from the laser penetrates the skin. The outer layers of damaged skin are removed, and the deeper layers are heated, stimulating the body’s healing response and the production of new collagen.
Am I a Candidate for Halo™ Laser Resurfacing?
Halo™ is designed to treat a wide array of skin concerns, including issues caused by aging, sun exposure, and other environmental factors. Halo™ can effectively rejuvenate the appearance of the skin on your face, neck, hands, arms, chest, and legs. Some of the concerns that can be treated with Halo™ include:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Uneven or poor skin texture
- Acne scars
- Pigmented lesions
The skin will be cleansed, and a topical anesthetic will be applied for your comfort. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the device will measure the depth of the skin in the areas to be treated so that it can adjust accordingly. The laser is then passed over the target site. You will feel a warming sensation as the light energy penetrates the skin. The exact amount of time required will vary depending on the size and number of areas being treated.
Recovery and Results
You may experience some swelling and skin sensitivity in the treatment area, but these side effects should dissipate over the next few days. During your recovery period, your skin may feel sunburned or slightly irritated. Medications like Advil® or TYLENOL® can provide relief.
More than one session may be required to achieve your aesthetic goals. Two aggressive treatments can provide quick and noticeable results, and long-lasting results can be attained through multiple, milder treatments over the course of several months. HALO™ also pairs well with Forever Young™ BBL and helps qualifying patients obtain superior rejuvenation.
