HALO is a unique skin revitalization treatment that uses laser technology to target the visible signs of skin aging. Over the years, sun exposure and the wear and tear of everyday living may have resulted in sun spots, fine lines, and the loss your natural healthy glow.

HALO’s laser design combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths that deliver energy to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize results and minimize downtime. With HALO, you’ll work with your clinician to create a customizable treatment plan to fit your lifestyle. The treatment is noninvasive and comfortable; we only use a topical anesthetic and makeup can be applied within 24 hours.

HALO can treat bothersome areas on your face or body and can be used on all skin types. Popular off-face treatments include the neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs.

Frequently Asked Questions

What results can I expect?
HALO is a complete skin revitalization laser treatment. You can expect to see overall improvements in your skin including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, improved skin reflectivity and glow, and significant removal of discoloration.

How many treatments do you need?
HALO is customizable based on your goals. Discuss your needs with your clinician, and you can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.

What happens during the treatment?
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your clinician may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. Your clinician will treat each measured area by uniformly rolling the HALO handpiece over your skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.

What does HALO feel like?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, patients typically experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.

When will I see results?
Patients typically see initial results between two and five days after their HALO treatment, but your skin should 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 should continue to improve for months.

How long will my results last?
HALO results typically will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional HALO treatment you get should improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.

How much does a HALO treatment cost?
Each HALO treatment is customized for your skin and your lifestyle. Depending on your needs, your provider may recommend a single treatment, or a series of treatments, so cost will vary based on your treatment plan.

After Your Procedure

For the first 24 hours you should keep your skin protected according to your clinician’s instructions, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities.

After the first 24 hours your skin should begin to peel, but you should be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you should see very little change on the first day. After two to three days, you should develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin should peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
