What Does Halo Pro Treat?
Halo Pro combines two different wavelengths which create a beautiful result with only five to seven days of downtime. Halo is great for treating textural issues, sun damage, melasma, fine lines, and acne scarring.
What Results Can be Expected?
Halo is a complete laser resurfacing treatment. This treatment stimulates collagen, improves overall skin tone and texture, removes discoloration, reduces fine lines, minimizes pore size, and enhances skin reflectivity and glow. Halo results will last for years, but this treatment does not stop the natural aging process. Patients should continue to keep their skin protected at all times with a broad-spectrum sunscreen to preserve their fresh, new, glowing skin.
How Many Treatments are Needed?
We will discuss a treatment plan to fit your needs. In clinical studies, patients saw maximum results after two treatments spaced four to six weeks apart and a maintenance treatment once a year.
What Can I Expect During the Procedure?
We will apply a topical numbing gel 45 minutes prior to your procedure to reduce some sensation. Once the numbing gel has been removed, metal goggles will be placed over your eyes, and we will measure the area to be treated with motion tracking technology. We will uniformly roll the Halo handpiece over the area until the system recognizes that all energy has been delivered evenly. With the use of a topical anesthetic and cooling technology in the handpiece, most patients only feel heat with occasional prickling sensations during the procedure. The procedure itself only takes about 30 minutes. The heat typically subsides around two to three hours after the treatment.
How Long Will it Take to Recover?
With Halo, you can expect four to seven days of downtime. Your “Halo Glow” will start to appear between five and seven days. Recovery looks like a severe sunburn and swelling with peppering throughout the skin. The peppering or MENDs (microscopic, epidermal, necrotic debris) will slough off completely by day seven. Itching, swelling, redness, peppering, and bronzing or darkening of the skin are all normal side effects of Halo. Making sure to follow the instructions we give to you will be beneficial in your healing process. Drinking lots of water and using a good moisturizer are pertinent to keeping your skin well hydrated during recovery. Using a broad-spectrum sunscreen with zinc oxide and titanium dioxide as the active ingredients is essential throughout recovery as well.
