Long-term sun exposure, active lifestyle and the wear and tear of everyday living results in visible signs of skin aging, including wrinkles, discoloration, scars, and laxity. A fractional treatment, whether ablative or coagulative, allows the epidermis to heal quickly as long as the dermis remains intact. Ablative fractional resurfacing is a well-established treatment that vaporizes aged tissue with less thermal injury, with mild to moderate levels of morbidity and downtime. Conversely, non-ablative fractional resurfacing causes thermal injury and tissue coagulation with lower levels of morbidity. The HALO hybrid fractional laser combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths delivered to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize clinical results and minimize downtime. HALO is safe and effective, while providing an enhanced patient experience.
Halo provides unique benefits including:
- Ability to treat pores using ablative and non-ablative wavelengths
- Results in just 1-2 treatments vs. 3-5 traditional resurfacing treatments
- More comfortable than traditional fractional resurfacing
- Faster healing time
Average healing progression for medium to aggressive treatments:
Patients treated with HALO experience great improvement to the appearance of skin’s texture and pigment. Expect amazing results in 1-2 treatments while older, non-hybrid technology often requires 5-6 treatments to demonstrate similar texture changes without approaching Halo in terms of pigment correction. The HALO patient experience is second-to-none: the treatment is extremely comfortable, only a topical anesthetic is recommended (no nerve blocks), and patients can apply makeup within 24 hours of the procedure.
Primary treatments include:
- Sun Damage/Dyschromia
- Signs of Aging
- Improve Appearance of Enlarged Pores
- Improve Appearance of Fines-Lines
- Poor Texture
- Improve Appearance of Light Scars
- Uneven Tone
HALO can treat most skin types, on face and body. Popular off-face treatments include the neck, chest, arms, hands, legs, and scarring.
