Halo Laser

The Halo fractional laser is an innovative laser technology that provides the benefits from more invasive, ablative laser treatments, which remove all outer layer of the skin, with the ease and little downtime of non-ablative laser treatments, which leave the outer layer of the skin intact. The Halo laser device makes microscopic channels in the outer layers of the skin to deliver selected heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin for a refreshed and more youthful complexion.

Halo Laser

The Halo fractional laser is an innovative laser technology that provides the benefits from more invasive, ablative laser treatments, which remove all outer layer of the skin, with the ease and little downtime of non-ablative laser treatments, which leave the outer layer of the skin intact. The Halo laser device makes microscopic channels in the outer layers of the skin to deliver selected heat energy to the deeper layers of the skin for a refreshed and more youthful complexion.

The microscopic channels produced by the Halo laser serve as micro-injuries to the skin. These tiny channels trigger your body to build new collagen and growth factors in order to heal these micro-injuries in the skin. Since the channels created by this treatment are microscopic, your overall skin is left intact, unlike other older, ablative laser treatments. In addition to the deeper skin benefits, the Halo laser polishes the surface of the skin leaving a more youthful, even skin tone on the surface.

The Halo laser can be helpful as treatment on many body areas, including the face, neck, décolletage, backs of the hands, forearms, and legs. Discuss your skin concerns with one of our team of well-educated providers at Cenla Dermatology to see if Halo laser is right for you.

Halo laser treatment helps the following skin concerns:

How do precancerous lesions occur?

Most patients require 1-3 treatments with the Halo laser, spaced every 3-6 months and then yearly for maintenance. Our providers at Cenla Dermatology will discuss with you the number of treatments needed based on your individual skin concerns.

What can I expect during and after Halo laser treatment?

Treatment with Halo laser involves the application of heat to deep levels of the skin during treatment. Therefore, a topical numbing agent is applied in-office prior to this procedure for your comfort. In addition, the Halo laser uses a cooling metal plate during the treatment, and we provide ice and other cooling measures immediately post-treatment. Immediately after treatment, patients may experience redness and mild heat (like a sunburn) to the treated area for the first day. On days 2-3 after Halo treatment, patients usually experience some swelling to the treatment area. On days 4-7 after the treatment, you may notice some dry shedding skin and tiny black dots on the skin where the skin impurities are being shed through the micro-channels.

Your provider will give you detailed directions for post care, but a bland moisturizer should be applied liberally at this time. Most patients are able to resume normal activities the next day but may have some swelling. Makeup should not be worn until the micro-channels heal around day 3-5.
