The HALO laser utilizes erbium in both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. The surface of the skin is treated with the ablative wavelength to improve fine lines, wrinkles, and sun spots. The deeper layers of the skin ae treated with the non-ablative wavelength too improve collagen stimulation and elasticity and true skin rejuvenation.
The recovery after a HALO laser is minimal due to the state of art technology and the inclusion of medical grade post procedure care products. Most patients experience redness, dryness, and flaking the first 2-3 days. The intensity of the treatment ultimately determines the amount of downtime.
Traditionally lasers are avoided in darker skinned individuals due to the risk of hyperpigmentation. The HALO utilizes Erbium for a treatment with less heat and less associated risk of hyperpigmentation. For individuals at highest risk, we pre-treat the skin with a topical product to prevent post treatment discoloration. We have the ability to customize the treatment just for you and to fit the recovery into your lifestyle..
The HALO is a very easy to tolerate treatment thanks to our painfree protocols at ZL. You can expect to have numbing crème applied 30 minutes prior to treatment for maximum comfort. During the treatment you will notice some heat and a feeling of “flushing” and “tingling”. The latest HALO technology incorporates a constant cooling mechanism to maintain comfort. At ZL, we have the post procedure experience down to an exact science for best possible results with the least amount of downtime. All of our HALO laser treatments include our post procedure care kit.
