Halo Skin Treatment


Long term sun exposure, the body’s natural aging process, an active lifestyle, and the regular wear and tear of everyday life are all factors that result in visible signs of aging; including wrinkles, discoloration, scars and laxity.

How many of us would enjoy having a brighter, more even skin tone? We cannot turn back time, but, with the help of science, we can reverse the signs of aging.

The Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser is the only treatment in its kind to offer the benefits of an ablative treatment with the downtime of less intensive, non-ablative treatments.

What Is a
Hybrid Fractional Laser (HFL)?

The Halo laser is a revolutionary hybrid fractional laser. This means that it combines the technology of an ablative and a non-ablative laser. This gives Halo the unprecedented ability to provide separate treatments to the epidermis (outer layer of the skin) and dermis (thick, inner layer of tissue below the surface) in the same treatment spot.

Halo precisely targets years of damage to your skin, and addresses the appearance of:

  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Visible signs of aging
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture
  • Appearance of fine lines
  • Appearance of scars

Great Results with Minimal Downtime

Choosing Halo means getting a customized treatment that suits your unique skin, lifestyle, and specific needs. During the treatment, we can create the previously discussed desired effect, by simply adjusting the levels of ablation. This means that, before you begin your treatment, you can choose how intense your treatment will be. A light treatment creates smooth, vibrant skin that’s ready for makeup the very next day. A more intense treatment will work deeper; repairing skin damage and giving your skin a youthful glow with just a few days of downtime.

Regardless of the intensity of your treatment, with Halo, your skin’s tone and texture will continue to improve, even after the first treatment. This is because a Hybrid Fractional Laser regenerates the skin by stimulating your body’s natural healing process.

Get the maximum amount of benefits with the least amount of downtime.


How Does the
Halo Skin Treatment Work?

A Precise, Effective, and Safe Treatment*

The Halo skin treatment effectively treats minor to moderate skin damage. The treatment consists of two lasers working together to regenerate tissue and correct skin imperfections. The ablative laser vaporizes the affected tissue. To put it in visual terms, it aerates the skin like a spike aerator does a lawn. Meanwhile, the other laser heats-up the targeted tissue, triggering collagen and elastin production.

As a natural defense mechanism, the body sends healing properties to the treated areas. As this occurs, injured and dead skin flakes away, making space for new, fresh skin that is smooth and glowing.

Benefits of the Halo Laser

Halo provides an unmatched patient experience. The combination of low downtime, amazing results, and an easy, comfortable treatment, makes for extremely happy patients.

Halo laser benefits include*:

  • Effectively treats pigmentary issues, wrinkles, and pores
  • Results in just 1 to 2 treatments
  • Overall less discomfort than traditional fractional resurfacing
  • Possibility to wear makeup just one day after the treatment
  • Faster healing time


What to Expect

Each patient is different, from their skin type, to their lifestyle, to their tolerance for downtime. Hybrid Fractional Lasers (HFLs) offer a customized treatment with maximum results and low downtime.

The Halo laser treatment is a virtually painless procedure that can treat most skin types, on face and body. Popular off-face treatments include: neck, chest, arms, hands, legs and scarring.

When you will first arrive to the clinic, we will apply a numbing cream to the treatment area. Once the anesthetic cream takes effect, we will begin the treatment, which usually takes between 30 and 45 minutes, depending on the size of the treated area. After the treatment, a cold air fan and mineral water mist will be applied to the treated area for approximately 30 minutes. You can expect to be at the clinic for a total of 2 to 2 ½ hours.

Downtime and Recovery

Downtime and recovery will depend on the intensity of your treatment. More aggressive treatments will regularly require a longer period of recovery. Swelling, redness, and the feeling of warm skin is commonly felt for up to 24 hours after the treatment. Many patients compare the feeling to having a sunburn. Cold compresses will help reduce discomfort and swelling. Most patients can resume their regular activities 1 or 2 days after the treatment. More aggressive treatments may require 3 to 4 days of downtime.

It is important to note that the use of sunscreen is imperative throughout the healing process and in the months following the treatment.

*Results may vary. Talk to our doctors to find-out if you are an appropriate candidate for this procedure.
