Am I A Candidate For The Halo Fractional Laser Treatment?
Halo allows your technician to customize your treatment to the downtime you have available and the results you want. A more aggressive treatment will give your skin a deep youthful glow with just a few days of downtime.
In addition to the face, Halo is effective on areas other than the face including the neck, chest, arms, hands and legs. Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and lose that natural healthy glow. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth and restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
Only With Halo Can You:
- Diminish wrinkles and fine lines
- Improve skin appearance
- Reduce visible signs of aging
- Improve the appearance of enlarged pores
- Improve the appearance of sun damage
- Even discolouration
How Is The Halo Laser Treatment Procedure Performed?
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your Registered Nurse/Laser Technician may place a topical ointment on your skin to reduce the sensation during the treatment. Your technician will then measure your face with motion tracking technology to ensure your face is treated evenly. The treatment will begin with one section of your face at a time by rolling the Halo handpiece in a crisscross pattern until the system recognizes the treatment is complete. With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. When the treatment is complete, most patients will continue to feel warm for up to one hour.
You can choose however many treatments you want. You can have one or two deeper treatments or multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.
Recovery & After Care For The Halo Treatment
For the first 24 hours, you should keep your skin protected according to instructions, but after that you will be able to go about your normal activities. Your Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen.
Typically you can expect 5-7 days downtime. One treatment is usually performed; however, if your sun damage is more severe your provider may recommend a series of treatments or a combination of treatments. Halo has an integrated cooling technology to keep patients experience as comfortable as possible during and after the treatment.
You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
Halo Fractional Laser FAQs
This depends on your lifestyle. If you can avoid prolonged sun exposure then yes, you can get laser treatments in the summer. If you plan on being outside in the sun without protection (SPF & a hat) then we would recommend that you postpone your treatments until the fall or winter.
Typically no. Our registered nurse/laser technician can assess you to determine whether you are a candidate for laser. Depending on the treatment and the area being treated there are different recommendations but in general, the skin must not be tanned in order to have a laser treatment.
This depends on what type of treatment you are undergoing. BBL treatments are not painful. The halo laser will feel hot and you will experience some pain for about 45-60 minutes after the treatment but then it completely goes away and is quite tolerable. Deep resurfacing laser treatments are painful but our office provides many forms of pain relief including oral, topical and local anesthetic.
This depends on what type of laser treatment you are having. There is no downtime associated with BBL. Halo has 5-7 days downtime. Deep resurfacing has a 2 week downtime and then prolonged redness (few months) which can be covered with makeup.
Our laser is a state of the art medical grade laser called the Sciton Joule. This platform has many different lasers built into it. We have a Broad Band Light (BBL) system which is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market. We also have a 1064nm Nd:YAG laser; the Halo laser which is a hybrid of two laser wavelengths (1470nm and 2940nm); a full resurfacing Erbium YAG laser (2940nm) and a Profractional ablative laser, which is also the 2940nm wavelength but instead of treating the entire surface of the skin it just treats a fraction of the skin – creating channels in the surface.
Many including: unwanted hair growth, spider veins and small facial vessels, rosacea, acne, pigment and wrinkles.
While the results do last a long time, the natural aging process is still occurring. As such, it is important to limit sun exposure and wear sunscreen when you are outdoors. You can also have touch-up laser treatments to extend the longevity of your results.
Many patients see visible results are their first treatment, while others see their results with subsequent treatments. The exact number of treatment sessions will depend on the condition of your skin prior to treatment as well as the number of areas you would like to treat.
The Sciton Halo™ is a safe and effective treatment for all skin types. Patients who have active acne flares or other skin conditions may not be ideal candidates for Halo. However, it is recommended that you discuss your skin concerns and conditions with your doctor prior to receiving treatment.
