The Halo laser treatment is a type of hybrid fractional laser skin resurfacing procedure that uses a combination of two different wavelengths of light to address a range of skin concerns. The treatment is designed to improve the overall texture, tone, and radiance of the skin, while also addressing specific concerns such as sun damage, fine lines, and acne scarring.
During the Halo treatment, the provider uses a handheld device that emits laser energy into the skin. The device is equipped with both ablative and non-ablative laser technology, allowing it to target both the outer and deeper layers of the skin. The ablative laser creates tiny micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response and stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. The non-ablative laser heats the deeper layers of the skin, causing them to contract and tighten, while also promoting collagen production.
The Halo treatment is highly customizable and can be tailored to the patient’s specific needs and concerns. The depth and intensity of the treatment can be adjusted based on the severity of the patient’s skin concerns, and the procedure can be performed on various areas of the body, including the face, neck, chest, and hands.
The Halo treatment typically requires little to no downtime, with most patients able to resume their normal activities immediately following the procedure. Some patients may experience mild redness, swelling, or peeling in the days following the treatment, but these side effects are typically temporary and resolve on their own.
The Halo treatment is suitable for patients of all skin types and can help to improve a wide range of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, and acne scarring. The procedure is generally safe and effective when performed by a qualified and experienced provider.
