What is HALO Laser™?

HALO is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, a safe, FDA-cleared anti-aging treatment. HALO is particularly effective at treating:

  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Sun damage/dyschromia
  • Skin texture
  • Skin resurfacing
  • Scar revision (including acne scars)
  • Signs of aging
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Appearance of enlarged pores
  • Actinic keratoses


Ready to restore your GLOW?

HALO Laser™ is the first hybrid fractional laser that delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone. What does this mean for you? The restorative power of an ablative treatment without the pain or downtime. HALO is great for most skin types, is tolerated better and has less downtime compared to traditional lasers.

The environment wreaks havoc on our skin from damaging UV rays to pollutants and chemicals, leaving our skin looking parched and aged. Fortunately, the skincare industry is bringing us revolutionary treatments like HALO to revitalize our skin and eliminate those tell-tale signs of aging: age spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin texture.

What’s best? There’s no surgery involved, the treatment requires little to no downtime, and you’re actually restoring the youthful structure of your skin (not just putting a bandaid on the problem). You’re left looking like your radiant, rested self in no time.

How does HALO Laser™ work?

The HALO Laser™ uses a combination of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to repair the visible signs of aging, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, discoloration, enlarged pores, poor texture and uneven skin tone. HALO treatments improve every aspect of your skin with minimum discomfort and minimal downtime.

What’s the difference between HALO and Fraxel?

Traditional fractional lasers (like Fraxel) treat two layers of the skin, the epidermis (upper layer that contains our pigment-producing cells responsible for skin coloring) and the dermis (middle layer made up of collagen and elastin fibres that provide skin with strength, toughness, elasticity and pliability). As we age, our epidermis thins making blemishes more visible and collagen and elastin in the dermis are gradually lost causing crepey, sagging skin, and wrinkles.

Fractional laser treatment delivers a laser beam that is divided into thousands of tiny but deep columns of treatment into the skin. Within each column old epidermal pigmented cells are expelled and collagen in the dermis is penetrated causing a reaction that leads to collagen remodelling and new collagen formation.

Fractional lasers, both ablative and non-ablative have worked well, but ablative treatments (more effective) were painful and carried significant downtime. Non-ablative treatments had less pain and downtime, but delivered weaker results and required more treatments. Ablative and non-ablative treatments were separate.

HALO Laser™ is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser able to combine both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same treatment area — combining the deep structural improvements of ablative treatments with the faster healing of non-ablative treatments. 

Does HALO work faster than traditional Fractional Laser?

HALO patients realize quicker optimal results with less downtime and typically need 1 or 2 less treatments than they would have needed with fractional laser.

Does HALO Laser™ hurt?

Most patients report minimal discomfort. We apply a topical numbing cream prior to the treatment for additional comfort.

How many HALO Laser™ treatments will I need?

Most patients see improvement after their first treatment, with optimal improvement after 2-3 treatments.

FAQ: Halo Laser™

What is a Halo Laser™ treatment?

Halo is unique in that it is a hybrid laser treatment that delivers both non-ablative and ablative energy to the same microscopic treatment zones. Therefore, it can treat to improve the texture and evenness of the skin while at the same time treating wrinkles and fine lines. This makes for a more efficient treatment with better results and less downtime.

What improvement can I expect to see with the Halo Laser™ treatment?

Halo Laser™ improves wrinkles and fine lines, sun damage, freckles, pigmented areas, the appearance of enlarged pores, acne scars and melasma. In addition, it improves the reflectivity of the skin giving it a more hydrated, glowy appearance.

Is the Halo Laser™ treatment painful?

Compared to traditional fractional laser treatments, Halo Laser™ is both faster and a more comfortable experience. Numbing cream is applied to the skin for approximately 1 hour prior to the treatment. Immediately after the procedure, the skin begins to feel flushed and warm. A cooling mask or cooling device is applied in the office and after 1-2 hour this subsides.

What is my downtime and when can I wear make-up?

Make-up can be applied after 24 hours in most cases. The downtime is generally 5-7 days of mild swelling, pinkness and textural changes in the skin. Depending upon the goals of treatment and areas treated, after 2-3 days most patients feel comfortable returning to work or their daily activities with the use of make-up.

What other areas can be treated?

The most popular areas off the face to be treated are the neck, chest and hands. This can be performed at the same time as the face.

How long does the procedure take to perform?

The procedure time can vary depending on the skin condition being treated and whether multiple areas such as the face, neck, chest and hands are being treated. In general, the procedure itself takes approximately 25-45 minutes. Prior to the procedure, numbing cream is applied for 1 hour.

How often should I do Halo Laser™ treatments?

As a maintenance, we recommend Halo Laser™ treatment once a year in combination with 2-4 BBL photofacials. For correction of certain skin conditions, twice a year Halo Laser™ treatments may be necessary for maximal results.
