In this edition of our Ask the Experts series, we’re taking a deep dive into the very popular Halo™ Laser treatment, answering some of the most common questions we get asked by our clients. Find the answers to the most frequently asked questions about Halo™ that you’ve been looking for.

Let’s get started!

What Skin Concerns Is Halo™ Best Suited for Treating?

Halo Laser offers a complete skin rejuvenation package. This laser-based cosmetic treatment is proven effective in addressing a wide range of concerns, such as:

  • Brown spots and other blemishes due to sun damage (dyschromia)
  • Fine lines and wrinkles due to skin aging
  • Scar revision, including acne scars
  • Sagging of the skin
  • Uneven skin texture
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Enlarged pores
  • Actinic keratosis

What Skin Types Does Halo™ Work On?

Halo Laser works beautifully on all skin types in different areas of the body. Aside from the face, our cosmetic laser technicians or skincare specialists use it with ease in treating issues in the neck, legs, arms, back, chest, and hands.

What Does Hybrid Fractional Laser Mean?

Halo™ is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. This revolutionary skincare technology from Sciton combines tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to deliver deep dermal rejuvenation and epidermal renewal that no other treatment can offer.

It’s a powerful laser skin resurfacing procedure that comes with a double wavelength feature. Halo delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths, which means it’s working its magic, not only on the topmost and visible layers of the skin but deep into the epidermis, giving patients remarkable results without experiencing pain, discomfort, or downtime.

How Does the Halo™ Laser Treatment Compare to Other Laser Treatments?

Halo is a cut above other laser-based treatments for the versatility of application and speed of achieving desired results. 

What Is the Difference Between Halo™ and BBL?

Halo and BBL are two of the most popular laser-based cosmetic treatments in the market today. Both developed by Sciton, Halo, and BBL are great laser rejuvenation technologies ideal for improving a wide range of skin issues with little to no downtime.

BBL™ BroadBand Light, which is also commonly referred to as BBL Photofacial (BroadBand Light) or “Photofacial,” uses non-ablative laser technology that works on the upper layers of the skin. On the other hand, Halo uses controlled heat to get rid of dead and damaged skin cells on the epidermis to reveal the healthier cells underneath.

How Often Should You Get Halo™ Laser?

The number of Halo treatment sessions you need depends on the kind and severity of the skincare issue being addressed. Your aesthetician determines this after a thorough consultation and physical assessment. To achieve your desired results, you may be advised to get one or two advanced treatment sessions spaced three weeks apart or multiple mild ones. 

How Long Do Halo™ Results Last?

Halo Laser has a solid reputation for its instant results. You’ll notice the difference in the overall quality of your skin right after treatment. Still, you will fully appreciate its full effects within a couple of months once you’ve completed all your sessions. Because of its dermal regeneration properties, expect to see continuous improvements in your skin’s texture, flawlessness, and radiance in the coming months as new collagen is produced from the epidermis. 

Once you’ve completely addressed your primary treatment concern, your clinician may recommend getting Halo Laser every six months or at least once a year for maintenance.

How Do I Take Care of My Skin After Halo™ Laser?

Halo Laser typically requires around 5 days of downtime after the procedure, ranging between 4-7 days depending on the person. We advise our patients to wait for at least 24 hours before washing the treatment area. Wash with lukewarm water and a gentle facial cleanser. Do not rub, scrub or exfoliate while the skin is still healing. Pat the skin with a soft towel afterward. Feel free to apply light makeup.

Like any laser-based cosmetic treatment, Halo laser can make the skin photosensitive. It is crucial to avoid unprotected sun exposure in the treatment area at all costs. Make it a habit to wear a broad-spectrum sunscreen at all times to prevent potential sun damage or side effects, which may include permanent hyperpigmentation or skin darkening. In addition, it’s also essential to steer clear of tanning salons, saunas, swimming pools, and hot tubs while ongoing Halo treatment to avoid complications and infections.

Can I Shower After Halo™ Laser?

No. Please wait for at least 24 hours before wetting or washing the treatment area. 

Is Halo™ Worth the Money?

Yes, absolutely. Halo™ Laser is a versatile technology that delivers more impressive results and fewer sessions than other cosmetic treatments.
