How long does it take to see the results from the treatment?

Results from Halo Treatments

There is an initial laser treatment recovery in 5-7 days, when the treated skin has cleared off, but the real Halo results take up to 2 months for all the epidermal response as well as dermal collagen rebuilding to occur.  That is why we do not recommend another Halo for at least two months.  Repair and support with proper product at home is important:  Epidermal Growth Factors(ReGenica), Heparan Sulfates(Sente), Peptide complexes(Revision) are all important for support of healing skin and recovery.

Halo Results

The advantage of the Halo laser is that you really have two lasers in one. Therefore, you are able to get the benefits for both the short term and the long term, with the short term results appearing within 5-7 days depending on the density your doctor used to teat you. The longer term results will appear over a period of 6-8 weeks as you begin to see the improvements in the texture of your skin and pores. The immediate effect will be some redness followed by the appearance of mends. Over a period of 6-8 weeks there will be a gradual improvement as the skin produces more collagen and has a more harmonious effect with the texture and color of your skin.

Halo Results

There is a recovery period of 5-7 days, when the treated skin has cleared. The actual Halo results may take up to 2 months for the epidermal response as well as dermal collagen rebuilding to occur.  That is why we do not recommend another Halo for at least two months.  However, a VISIA may be done at 1 month to see the progress that is being made. Using the proper products at home after your healing process is important. This will be specific to each patient and will be determined at the time of your treatment.

Hope you found this answer helpful.  All the best!

Results in 1 week!

You will start to see results in 7-10 days. We normally see you at 4 weeks for follow-up photos to compare the before and after results. Our VISIA Skin Analysis system can then compare your fine lines and wrinkles, tone and texture, sun damage and pore size from the before treatment photo as new collagen continues to build.

Halo Results

You should notice an improvement in your skin's light reflection "glow" within 5-7 days after the healing is completed.  The beauty with resurfacing treatments is the results continue to improve with time.  It can take a couple months to see the full results.

Results of Halo

Halo has 2 lasers, one ablative and one non-ablative. The ablative laser will make you skin tone more even in texture while the non-ablative laser will stimulate the wrinkles and collagen in your face. After about a week, all the brown spots from the treatment will flake off and you should expect a more smooth and even toned face. Your skin will continue to improve and you will look even better in 6-8 weeks.

Halo Results

Hello, you will start seeing results 2-5 days after treatment but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see improvements in their skin in the first 2-3 weeks followed by continued skin regeneration that continues to improve for months.
