Halo Laser: When Will I See Results?

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.

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.
