In this post, you will learn the incredible benefits of Halo Laser and how it can transform your skin. Let’s get started. 

What is HALO® Laser? 

Halo Treatment Skin Technique

The HALO® fractional laser is a hybrid fractional laser technology used for skin resurfacing. The HALO® laser is an effective option for skin resurfacing by combining ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. 

Additionally, HALO® laser treatments offer customizable parameters tailored to individual skin types and concerns, making it a versatile solution for addressing various skin issues with minimal downtime and side effects.

How HALO® Laser Works 

HALO® laser delivers precise laser energy to the skin, stimulating collagen production and triggering the body’s natural healing response. 

Harnessing the power of dual laser technology (ablative and non-ablative), HALO® laser offers a comprehensive approach to skin rejuvenation. The ablative function works by targeting the outer layers of the skin, gently removing damaged cells and promoting new cell growth. The non-ablative component penetrates deeper into the skin, stimulating collagen production. 

The key advantage of the HALO® laser lies in its fractional approach. Both lasers treat only microscopic zones within the targeted area, leaving surrounding healthy tissue intact.  

Benefits of HALO® Laser 

HALO® laser is a versatile and effective option for achieving smoother, more youthful-looking skin with minimal downtime and side effects. Its benefits include:  

Minimization of Acne Scars and Blemishes

If you have acne scars or blemishes, the Halo Laser can help minimize their visibility. The ablative laser energy reshapes the scar tissue, smoothing its surface, while the non-ablative laser stimulates collagen production, improving the appearance of the scar and creating a smoother complexion.  

Treatment of Sun Damage and Pigmentation Issues

Another benefit of the Halo Laser is its ability to treat sun damage and pigmentation issues. Excessive sun exposure can lead to freckles, sunspots, and hyperpigmentation. The ablative laser component of the HALO® laser targets these blemishes, removing them by vaporizing the pigmented cells. Additionally, the non-ablative laser helps regulate melanin production (which contributes to hyperpigmentation), further preventing future sun damage. 

Reduction of Fine Lines and Wrinkles 

The HALO® laser can also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by stimulating the production of new collagen. Because as we age, collagen production naturally decreases, leading to these early signs of aging. The HALO® laser addresses this by boosting collagen production.

Improvement in Skin Tone and Texture

The HALO® laser can enhance your overall skin tone and texture. The ablative laser eliminates superficial blemishes and discoloured patches, while the non-ablative laser stimulates collagen production to smooth and refine your skin’s surface.

Boosting Collagen Production for Firmer, Youthful Skin

Finally, the HALO® laser boosts collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin. The laser light of non-ablative wavelengths leaves the skin surface intact while disrupting the collagen below. This works to treat skin for conditions such as uneven skin texture, wrinkles and acne scarring. The wavelengths disrupt collagen in columns in the skin to stimulate elastin and collagen production.  

Frequently Asked Questions About HALO® Laser 

Does HALO® Laser Hurt? 

HALO® laser treatment may cause mild to moderate discomfort, but it is generally well-tolerated by most people. We can offer a proprietary medical-grade topical cream to the treatment area and give time to provide relief before and during the procedure. 

How Long Do Results from HALO® Laser Last? 

Results can span from months to years, contingent upon individual patient factors and diligent skincare practices. We recommend scheduling one HALO® treatment annually for maintenance. 

Is HALO® Laser Safe? 

HALO® is safe, especially when used by a qualified healthcare professional. Our clinicians will discuss pre and post-care prior to treatment to ensure that you heal as quickly and safely as possible. 

Within the first few hours, you will feel some sensitivity, and the treated area will appear flushed and slightly swollen. In addition, over the first few days, you may experience light shedding of the skin on the area treated. 

Other HALO® laser side effects include itching and crusting. 

But not to worry, if they do occur, these effects subside quickly. 

How Many Treatments of HALO® Laser Do I Need? 

With our modern devices at Skin Technique, one treatment is often effective for most concerns. You should begin to see results 1-2 weeks post-treatment, with definitive results after 4-6 weeks. 

However, we may recommend 2 (or more) treatments for certain conditions.
