Halo Laser Overview: Everything You Need to Know About the Skin Rejuvenating Treatment

What Is Halo Laser?

The Halo hybrid fractional laser uses a combination of wavelengths to repair the visible signs of aging, sun damage, discoloration, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. As the Halo handpiece is rolled over the skin, one laser targets the top layer while the other targets the bottom layer. The result is a rejuvenated appearance without the downtime of more aggressive procedures.

Halo HandpieceWhat Happens During a Halo Treatment?

A qualified physician will first put a topical anesthetic on your skin roughly 30 to 60 minutes before your treatment. Once ready, the Halo handpiece is rolled over your skin, sending wavelengths to both the top and bottom layers of the tissue. Pigment from the damaged skin is brought to surface and will peel off in the first few days after treatment. The tissues targeted below the surface will continue to regenerate through the body’s natural healing process. This technology not only treats the visible damage on the surface of the skin, but the deep damage from aging and sun exposure that you can’t see.

What Does Halo Feel Like?

With a combination of a topical anesthetic and an integrated cooling system, most people feel very little discomfort. The feeling of Halo has been described as mild heat with occasional prickling sensations. The treatment area typically feels warm for about 15 to 30 minutes after the procedure is over, but sometimes a bit longer if the treatment targeted deeper levels of the skin.

How Many Treatments Do I Need?

The number of treatments needed depends on the results you want to achieve. You can choose to have multiple light procedures or a smaller number of more aggressive ones.

What Results Can I Expect From Halo?

Halo is designed to completely rejuvenate the skin, which means you’ll see improvements in overall appearance including tone, texture, discoloration, fine lines, pore size, and radiance. Initial results are typically seen between two to five days after the first treatment, but continue to improve over the course of a few months.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Each additional Halo treatment will provide improved results that can last for several years. Shield your new skin from further damage by wearing proper UV sunscreen and protective clothing such as hats and sunglasses.

What Happens After Treatment? Is There Downtime?

You’ll be able to go about your normal activities immediately after treatment, but it’s important to keep your skin protected for the first 24 hours according to your physician’s instructions. In most cases, makeup can be worn the very next day. Your skin will begin peeling after three to four days, revealing the rejuvenated skin underneath.

How Much Does Halo Cost?

Halo laser treatments are customized to the individual, so the cost will vary depending on the person, the desired results, and the number of procedures needed. On RealSelf, the average price of Halo is listed as $1,175.
