Halo Laser available to our clients in the Peterborough, Lindsay, Cobourg, Oshawa and Belleville region.
Release Your Inner Glow
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 and restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
How Does Halo Work?
Halo is a hybrid fractional laser that delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. What this means is that the laser has dual capabilities, used to address different types of skin concerns. The laser combines deep dermal rejuvenation with epidermal renewal for a combined synergistic effect you can’t get with any other treatment. The two different wavelengths can be targeted to the same or different treatment areas, to different depths and intensities. Previously lasers were not able to target areas this precisely.
Key Advantages of Halo
- Customizable treatments
- Improvement in the appearance of tone, texture, fine lines and wrinkles
- Reduction in pore size and increased reflectivity and glow
- Flexibility in treatment levels and downtime
Customizable Treatments with Halo
Everyone’s skin is different. Halo allows your clinician to customize your treatment to fit your lifestyle. Need to be back at work tomorrow? A light treatment creates smooth, vibrant skin that's ready for makeup the next day. Want to WOW them? A more intense treatment will give your skin that youthful glow with just a few days of downtime.
Great Results with Minimal Downtime
In the past, you had to choose between a procedure that offered really great results, but required a lengthy recovery, or a procedure with a fast recovery but marginal results. Now Halo can give you the best of both worlds: great results with minimal downtime and less aggressive treatments.
What can Halo treat?
- Sun damage
- Visible signs of aging
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Poor texture
- Fine lines
- Scar revision
How many treatments do you need?
What’s great about Halo is that you can choose how many treatments you want! Discuss with your clinician your needs, 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. The clinician will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
What does Halo feel like?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients 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.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
For the first 24 hours you should keep your skin protected according to your clinician’s instructions. After that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours your skin will begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin will peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
When will I see results?
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 progress for months.
How long will my results last?
Your Halo results 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 will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
