Why should I receive a Halo treatment?
Over time, your can will lose its youthful glow, due to your body’s natural aging process and, of course, sun exposure. The results are sunspots, fine lines, larger pores, loss of collagen and elastin, as well as uneven tone and texture. Sometimes lasers cannot effectively improve these skin conditions because the treatment is either too deep or too shallow. Halo erases years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth to restore the luminous glow of your youth!
How is Halo performed?
There is an initial consultation before the treatment is performed. After the procedure has been explained, consent forms have been signed, and all questions/concerns have been addressed, a series of clinical “before” photos are taken.
We will then apply a topical anaesthetic to the treatment area, which creates a tolerable “numb” feeling. It takes about an hour for the ointment to achieve its full effect.
After your skin has numbed, we will remove the ointment and begin the procedure. The laser is used to take measurements of the depth of your skin. This helps us know how deep we should treat. This is a comfortable process, although some sensation may occur near sensitive areas such as around the nose and lips.
Following this process, the procedure begins, which usually takes around 20 – 45 minutes. You may experience some minimal discomfort, but it is tolerable.
