Does Halo Laser Work? Everything You Need To Know

Halo Laser works wonderfully to improve the appearance of your skin and it is effective for all ages, skin types, and complexions. Using motion-tracking technology, Halo Laser targets skin imperfections, improves collagen production, and treats minor facial flaws. Results can vary depending on the number of treatments and the severity of your skin problems, so treatments can be customized according to your specific needs.

 

The type of treatment will vary depending on the skin type, degree of sun damage, lifestyle, and tolerance of downtime.

 

Halo Laser Treats More Than Fine Lines and Wrinkles

Halo laser technology is designed to effectively remove damage due to sunspots, fine lines, and loss of skin glow during the earlier years. This treatment helps retain the youthful glow of the skin and improves the overall texture and appearance by treating skin damage like fine lines and wrinkles.

  • Fine Lines & Wrinkles
  • Loss of Skin Glow
  • Uneven Skin Tone
  • Complexion
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Scarred Skin
  • Sun-damaged Skin
  • Discoloration

In the 2018 Aesthetics Trend Report of RealSelf, halo laser treatment was named as the second most popular nonsurgical treatment. Since then, it has become a go-to anti-aging, confidence-building treatment because it can be tailored to the individual needs of patients to address skin pigmentation, tone, and texture.

 

Besides reducing the appearance of facial fine lines, it also restores the skin tone and complexion of scarred or sun-damaged skin. The procedure will help improve skin tone and texture and decrease the appearance of scars and dark spots.

 

How Does it Work?

Halo is the first hybrid fractional laser to use both ablative and non-ablative laser energy to help you eliminate years of damage. The procedure combines two laser wavelengths in a single pulse effectively combining two different treatments that used to be administered separately. This technology allows very precise targeting of skin damage at just the right dept – something that was not possible with older technology lasers.

 

Halo laser treatment can resurface about 25 to 30 percent of the skin. Other laser procedures only resurface 5 percent of the skin.

 

Ablative laser

This is a wounding laser that removes thin layers of skin. It vaporizes the outermost layers of skin, causing regenerative growth and increased collagen production. Examples of these types of lasers are carbon dioxide and erbium lasers.

 

Non-Ablative laser

The non-ablative laser triggers the production of collagen and elastin, which reduces the burgeoning of wrinkles and tightens underlying skin using thermal energy. It includes different kinds of lasers and intense pulsed light (IPL) devices.

 

It Works On All Skin Types And Not Just On Aging Skin

While some laser treatments are only effective for men and women with lighter skin complexions, Halo is different. It scans and targets imperfections deep within the epidermis, making the treatment effective for all ages, skin types, and complexions.

 

Halo laser treatment is also effective for reducing fine lines and wrinkles, in a way that is very different than dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxers. Aside from aging skin, it can also treat issues such as discoloration, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, sun damage, and scarring. The results will vary depending on the number of treatments and the severity of skin problems.

 

Halo Delivers Noticeable Results & Requires Little To No Downtime

Halo laser treatment is a non-invasive procedure, which means that most patients can return to work and resume daily activities right after the treatment. Compared to other laser treatments Halo offers the best possible outcome with the least amount of recovery.

 

You might experience redness and swelling which disappear within 1 – 3 days. However, you can apply makeup after 24 hours.

 

With this treatment, your skin will peel to reveal new, revitalized layers beneath and the appearance of scars and dark spots will decrease noticeably. You will notice improvements up to a week following the treatment, but you can see results in as little as 2 days!

 

It Takes A Couple Of Hours Per Session & Requires Fewer Treatments

 

Although a single Halo session is more expensive than other options such as chemical peels or traditional lasers, these options can take up to 3-4 treatments to achieve your desired results – Halo can provide you better and longer-lasting results in a single procedure.

 

Because of this, Halo is a much better option. After undergoing the procedure, your skin might stay red or pink for some time. But once the treated area begins to heal, you will see a huge difference in your skin quality and appearance.

 

What You Can Expect From This Procedure

Halo laser treatment works on all skin types, ages, and complexions. However, each skin is unique and treatment is tailored to each specific case. Before undergoing treatment, your doctor will likely do the following:

  • Review your medical history
  • Conduct a physical exam
  • Discuss expectations

To make this procedure as painless as possible and improve your experience, a topical anesthetic (a numbing agent) is applied before the procedure. Once the anesthetic effect starts kicking in, your face is measured using motion-tracking technology before the actual treatment begins.

 

IMPORTANT: Avoid unprotected sun exposure. Too much exposure to the sun two months before the procedure can cause permanent irregular pigmentation in the treated area. Make sure that you are properly protected from sun exposure.
