Halo® Laser Skin Resurfacing

In Vero Beach and all along Florida’s Treasure Coast, sun exposure combined with the natural aging process can result in sun spots, fine lines and the loss of your skin’s naturally healthy glow. The Halo® hybrid fractional laser is a breakthrough treatment that rejuvenates your skin in a way that’s truly customized for your needs. Halo can reverse years of damage by precisely targeting the right skin depth to restore a more youthful glow.

What Makes Halo Different?

Before Halo, skin resurfacing treatments generally offered patients 2 paths:

  • A single procedure that produced dramatic results with a long recovery period or;
  • Multiple treatments that created marginal results but with minimal downtime

Halo is a game-changing hybrid laser that provides the best of both worlds: excellent results with little recovery time. As the world’s first hybrid laser skin treatment, Halo combines 2 wavelengths, enabling the provider to customize the procedure.

For example, most laser devices are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers aggressively treat the skin’s outer layers to produce significant, immediate results. Non-ablative lasers gently target the deeper layers of the skin without damaging the external layers, stimulating new collagen production that over time creates healthier and more youthful-looking skin.

Halo combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths, producing impressive results without the downtime that’s typically necessary with other laser treatments.

What It Treats

Because your skin concerns aren’t the same as all other White Orchid Spa patients, our laser specialists customize the Halo treatment to address your specific needs. Halo can completely rejuvenate your skin, improving its overall tone and texture, reducing the size of enlarged pores, and reducing discoloration.

It’s especially effective in reducing melasma, one of the most common concerns of patients at White Orchid. Unlike intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments, which can actually worsen melasma in some cases, Halo is very safe for treating skin discoloration. In addition, Halo treats sun damage and all visible signs of aging.

How It Works

HALO™ Laser Skin Resurfacing machine being used on patient

The unique dual wavelengths deliver an unprecedented ability to customize treatments for each individual. Every patient has different needs in terms of skin damage and downtime. With Halo, our nurse practitioners can precisely dial in the exact treatment each patient needs for amazing results within the desired downtime.

Halo delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone: 2940 nm for ablation and 1470 nm for coagulation. Each wavelength can be adjusted for the size and depth of treatment area. In some cases, the ablative wavelength can be completely turned off for individuals looking for the mildest laser skin treatments.

What to Expect

We begin each Halo treatment by applying a numbing cream to help minimize discomfort. The handpiece using during the procedure cools the skin, so most patients tolerate the treatment well. Expect to feel some heat with occasional prickly sensations. Because we customize the treatments based on each patient’s concerns, the length of the appointment differs from one person to the next.

Your skin will continue to feel warm after the treatment for at least 30 minutes (longer if the procedure is more aggressive). Any post-treatment discomfort can usually be managed with over-the-counter pain relief medications. It’s important to protect your skin based on the instructions provided by our nurse practitioners. Don’t expect to see a significant change in the first day after the laser treatment, but by day 3 or 4 your skin should begin peeling.

Keep in mind that each patient is unique and your results may vary.

Your Results

The initial results appear as your skin starts to peel after 3 or 4 days, revealing the refreshed appearance. Improvements continue over time, with reduced discoloration, shrunken pores, and smoother and more even skin tone and texture gradually appearing over the following weeks and even months.

Halo results are long-lasting, but it’s important to use quality sun protection products to minimize future damage.

Commonly Combined Procedures

For even more noticeable rejuvenation, we can combine Halo laser treatments with other skin treatments. Popular options include:

Common Questions

Which areas can be treated with Halo laser skin treatments?

Halo laser treatments can be used to rejuvenate exposed skin on virtually any area, including the face, neck, décolletage, arms, and backs of the hands.

How can I minimize swelling after a Halo laser skin treatment?

To minimize swelling (edema), apply a cold compress as needed the day of treatment and sleep in an upright position for the first 2 to 3 nights. Swelling typically lasts 2 to 4 days, depending on the aggressiveness of treatment and the specific areas treated. Swelling is most pronounced the first morning after treatment and under the eyes.

How much does a Halo treatment cost?

Because Halo treatments vary depending on the individual’s concerns, goals, and lifestyle, the cost changes. You may need a single treatment or a series of treatments. We can quote a specific price after your consultation.

How long after laser skin resurfacing before I can get back to my normal activities?

Our nurse practitioners provide each patient detailed instructions that should be strictly followed to maximize results. In general, you can expect to return to normal activities after the first 24 hours following your procedure. That includes applying makeup. Your skin will continue peeling, so some patients avoid social events for the first 5 days or so after getting laser skin rejuvenation.

When can I exercise after a Halo laser treatment?

You will need to avoid strenuous exercise and sweating until swelling has faded, which takes about 1 to 3 days. If your workouts involve outside activities like running and biking, be sure to wear proper sunscreen, protective clothing, and a hat/visor to avoid sunburn and hyperpigmentation.

Does the Halo laser tighten skin?

While Halo isn’t a skin tightening treatment, it does increase collagen production for slight firming and tightening over time. SkinTyte treatments can provide more noticeable tightening. Your provider will be able to recommend the procedure best suited to the improvements you want.

Which is better, BBL or Halo?

The best skin rejuvenation treatment depends on the condition of your skin, the concerns you want treated, and your available downtime. Forever Young BBL is not a resurfacing treatment like Halo. Because BBL treatments are gentle, it usually takes a few treatments to achieve noticeable results. In contrast, results from Halo treatments are noticeable after a single treatment. Many patients benefit from both treatments for optimal rejuvenation.

Is Halo better than Fraxel®?

While both are fractional lasers, Halo combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to provide resurfacing and deeper rejuvenating that can be adjusted for each patient and area treated. Compared to Fraxel, Halo is more efficient, involves less discomfort, and requires a shorter downtime period.
