Halo™ Pro Before & After Photos
Keep in mind each patient is unique and your results may vary.
What Results Can I Expect?
Halo is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines*, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow. We can combine Halo treatments with other procedures, such as ProFractional™ laser therapy, to address multiple skin concerns in a single treatment.
How Much Does a Halo Treatment Cost in Rochester, NY?
The cost of Halo laser skin rejuvenation treatments depends on a number of factors, including the extent of the procedure and the number of treatments needed. Because we can customize treatments to be gentler or more aggressive, that number fluctuates depending on the patient’s preference. The price of your Halo procedure can be determined after consulting with one of our providers.
How Many Treatments Do You Need?
What’s great about Halo is that you can choose how many treatments you want! Discuss with your clinician your needs and you can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.
What Happens During the Treatment?
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your clinician may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The clinician will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
Specializing in Concierge Treatment Designed for You
We established Dermatology Associates of Rochester to provide quality, compassionate medical and cosmetic skincare and plastic surgery services in a boutique setting where patients felt like part of an extended family. Our board-certified dermatologists, plastic surgeon, nurse practitioners, and registered nurses work together with our professional staff to ensure you enjoy an exceptional experience each time you visit.
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
How Soon After My Treatment Can I Return To Normal Activities?
For the first 24 hours, you should keep your skin protected according to your clinician’s instructions, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours, your skin will begin to peel. Make-up can be worn once peeling is complete (about 5-7 days). For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin will peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
When Will I See Results?
You will see initial results within 7 days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
How Long Will My Results Last?
Your Halo results can last for years to come but may vary based on sun exposure. It is critical that you continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better-looking skin.
Is Halo the best treatment for age spots and sun damage?
It is highly effective in treating age spots and brown spots caused by sun damage because it targets both the outer layer of skin as well as the deeper source of hyperpigmentation. Its ablative wavelength addresses surface textural issues caused by exposure to the sun, while its non-ablative wavelength reaches the dermal layer of skin to address the roots of long-term sun damage and discoloration.
Does it really help with large pores?
Halo does help reduce the size and appearance of large pores by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, the building blocks of healthy, supple skin. As the skin restores itself, pores become less visible, and your complexion appears more even and smooth.
Is it painful?
Halo is faster and more comfortable than most patients expect. Patients do feel a warm, prickling sensation as the Halo wand passes over the treated skin. However, Halo uses dynamic thermal optimization to monitor your skin temperature during treatment and adjust the laser’s power to keep you comfortable. We may also apply a topical numbing cream to your skin to help minimize your discomfort. Compared to other laser treatments, Halo is very well tolerated by most patients.
Is the treatment safe?
Halo is considered safe and effective for all skin shades, including darker tones. Because Halo is so highly customizable, we can successfully treat a wider range of skin imperfections on all skin types.
