What Is HALO™?
HALO™ is a laser skin-rejuvenation treatment that is capable of providing both ablative (tissue removal) and non-ablative (no tissue removal) skin rejuvenation with incredible precision all in one treatment. The HALO™ system is able to deliver such comprehensive care because it utilizes a hybrid fractional laser that can emit ablative and non-ablative wavelengths.
The HALO™ system features adjustable energy levels, which means each treatment can be customized to suit the needs of the patient. The treatment process is quick and virtually painless and provides consistent results. The precision of the system and the non-surgical approach to rejuvenation also mean that the required recovery time is shorter.
What Are the Benefits of HALO™?
HALO™ is designed to treat a wide array of common and specific skin concerns. These include issues caused by the effects of aging, sun exposure, and other environmental factors that can take a toll on your skin. Using its hybrid fractional laser, HALO™ can effectively rejuvenate the appearance of the skin on your face, neck, hands, arms, chest, and legs.
Some of the skin concerns that can be treated with HALO™ include:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Uneven or poor skin texture
- Acne scars
- Pigmented lesions
How HALO™ Treatments Are Performed
Once the skin has been cleaned and cleared of any dirt and debris, a topical anesthetic is applied to help numb the area for maximum comfort during the treatment. Once the anesthetic has taken effect, the technology measures the depth of the skin in the areas to be treated so that it can adjust accordingly.
The laser is passed over the areas of the skin where treatment is desired. The patient will feel a warm sensation during this. The exact amount of time required to complete the treatment will vary depending on the size and amount of areas being treated.
What to Expect from Your HALO™ Treatment
The skin may feel sensitive and some swelling may occur around the treated areas, but these issues should dissipate over the next few days. During the recovery period, it may feel as if the treated skin is sunburned and slightly irritated. Medications like Advil or Tylenol can provide relief.
Multiple treatment may be required to achieve the desired results. Quick and noticeable results can be provided over the course of two aggressive treatments, and long-lasting results can be attained through multiple milder treatments over the course of several months.
