Halo® Treatment London
Halo laser treatment is a type of cosmetic treatment utilised to enhance the appearance of the skin. This hybrid fractional laser uses both ablative and non-ablative laser technology to treat many skin concerns, like fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, sun damage, and acne scars.
During the treatment, the Halo laser delivers precise wavelengths of energy to the skin to stimulate collagen production and promote skin rejuvenation. The laser energy creates micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process, leading to the formation of new, healthier skin cells.
Our trained practitioners typically perform the Halo laser treatment, and it takes about 30-60 minutes to complete, depending on the size of the treatment area. Most people require 1-3 treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve the desired results.
Following the treatment, patients may notice some redness and swelling, which usually settles within a few days. The skin may also peel or flake for several days following the treatment. Patients are typically advised to avoid direct sun exposure and to use broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect their skin during the healing process.
Overall, Halo laser treatment is an effective and safe way to improve the appearance of the skin and gain a glowing and youthful complexion. However, as with any cosmetic procedure, discussing the risks and benefits with our qualified skin professional before undergoing treatment is essential.
What does Halo laser do?
As a hybrid fractional laser that operates ablative and non-ablative laser technology can treat various skin concerns. Here are some of the things that Halo laser treatment can do:
- Improve skin texture: The Halo laser can smooth out rough skin texture by promoting collagen production and fading the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and pores.
- Even out skin tone: The laser can target skin pigmentation, such as sunspots, age spots, and melasma, and break up the excess pigment to create a more even skin tone.
- Reduce acne scars: The Halo laser can assist in reducing acne scars’ appearance by stimulating collagen production and encouraging the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
- Improve skin elasticity: The laser’s heat energy can promote skin tightening and improve skin elasticity, leading to a firmer, more youthful appearance.
- Enhance skin glow: By promoting skin rejuvenation and creating a smoother, more even complexion, the Halo laser can enhance the skin’s natural glow and radiance.
Overall, Halo laser treatment is a versatile and effective way to address a wide range of skin concerns and achieve a more youthful, vibrant complexion.
How does Halo laser treatment work?
Halo laser treatment works by using a hybrid fractional laser technology that incorporates both ablative and non-ablative methods to target specific layers of the skin. Here is a step-by-step overview of how the treatment works:
- Consultation: Before undergoing Halo laser treatment, a consultation with our practitioners is required to assess the patient’s skin concerns and decide if they are qualified candidates for the treatment and create a treatment plan.
- Preparation: A patch test will be performed 48 hours before the treatment, so the patient should not be exposed for long to the sun or visit sunbeds and have not used any self-tan cream. On the treatment day, the patient’s skin is cleansed of any make-up, sun cream or moisturiser cream.
- Treatment: The Halo laser is then used to deliver precise wavelengths of energy to the skin. The laser creates micro-injuries in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing process, leading to the formation of new, healthier skin cells.
- Customisation: The Halo laser treatment can target specific skin problems, like fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, uneven skin tone, and acne scars. The laser’s energy level, depth of penetration, and treatment area can all be adjusted to suit the patient’s individual needs.
- Recovery: After the treatment, the patient may experience some redness and swelling, which usually resolves within a few days. The skin may also peel or flake for several days following the treatment. Patients are typically advised to avoid direct sun exposure and to use broad-spectrum sunscreen to protect their skin during the healing process.
- Follow-up: Depending on the patient’s skin concerns, they may require 1-3 treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve the desired results. After the treatment series is complete, patients can expect to notice improvements in skin tone, texture and overall appearance.
The technology of Halo laser.
The Halo laser is a type of fractional laser that uses a hybrid technology combining both ablative and non-ablative lasers. The Halo laser emits two different wavelengths of energy, one ablative and one non-ablative that are delivered to the skin simultaneously. The ablative wavelength targets the outer layer of the skin, creating microscopic channels in the skin’s surface, while the non-ablative wavelength penetrates deeper into the skin to promote collagen production and stimulate skin rejuvenation.
The Halo laser’s unique hybrid technology allows it to deliver both superficial and deep skin rejuvenation with minimal downtime. The ablative component of the laser removes the outermost layer of damaged skin, while the non-ablative component stimulates collagen production, resulting in improved skin texture, tone, and overall appearance. The laser’s customisable settings allow for precise targeting of specific skin concerns, such as fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and acne scars.
The science behind the Halo laser lies in its ability to trigger the skin’s natural healing process, leading to the formation of new, healthy skin cells. The ablative component of the laser creates controlled damage to the outer layer of the skin, which prompts the body’s immune system to initiate the healing process. This process produces new elastin and collagen, which enable plumping and tightening the skin, fading wrinkles and fine lines, and improving overall skin texture and tone.
In summary, the science of the Halo laser lies in its ability to use a combination of ablative and non-ablative laser technology to target specific layers of the skin and stimulate the body’s natural healing process. By triggering collagen production and promoting skin rejuvenation, the Halo laser can improve the appearance of a comprehensive range of skin problems, resulting in a more youthful, vibrant complexion.
Halo Laser FAQs
How many Halo laser treatments will I need?
The number of Halo laser treatments you will need depends on several factors, including your skin type, the severity of your skin concerns, and your desired results. In general, most patients require 1-3 treatments, spaced several weeks apart, to achieve optimal results.
During your initial consultation with our trained skin professionals, they will assess your skin concerns and recommend a treatment plan tailored to your individual needs. They will also discuss the expected number of treatments required to achieve your desired results.
Ultimately, the number of Halo laser treatments you will need will depend on your unique skin concerns and goals. Our practitioners can provide you with a more detailed treatment plan and answer any questions you may have.
How long will the Halo laser results last?
The results of Halo laser treatment can vary on every individual, depending on factors like skin type, age, and lifestyle. However, in general, the results of Halo laser treatment can last for several years.
The Halo laser works by promoting collagen production and stimulating the skin's natural healing process, which leads to improved skin texture, tone, and overall appearance. The new collagen that is formed during the treatment process can continue to improve the skin's appearance for several months after the treatment is complete.
It's important to note that the results of Halo laser treatment are not permanent. Over time, the natural aging process and external factors such as sun exposure and environmental pollutants can affect the skin's appearance.
To maintain the results of your Halo laser treatment, it's important to practice good skin care habits, such as using a broad-spectrum sunscreen, avoiding smoking, and maintaining a healthy diet and lifestyle.
In some cases, patients may require periodic touch-up treatments to maintain their results. Our skin professional can recommend a customised treatment plan to help you achieve and maintain the best possible results from Halo laser treatment.
How will I look after Halo laser treatment?
After Halo laser treatment, your skin could become red, swollen, and tender to the touch. You may also experience a mild to moderate burning or itching sensation, which can be managed with topical creams and pain medication if needed.
These side effects are generally temporary and should be reduced within a few days to a week following treatment.
In the days following the procedure, the outer layer of your skin may begin to peel, revealing new, healthy skin underneath. This is standard with the healing process and can stay up to a week, depending on the intensity of the treatment.
As the healing process progresses, you should begin to notice improvements in your skin's tone, texture and overall appearance.
Your skin may appear smoother, firmer, and more radiant than before. In addition, depending on the level of your skin issue, you may notice a reduction in the appearance of sun damage, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles.
It's important to follow our post-treatment instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results and minimise the risk of complications.
This will include no sun exposure, applying a gentle cleanser and moisturiser, and avoiding harsh chemicals or exfoliants until your skin has fully healed.
Overall, while you may experience some temporary side effects after Halo laser treatment, the long-term benefits to your skin's appearance can be significant and well worth it.
What is aftercare after Halo laser?
Appropriate aftercare is important to guarantee the best possible results from Halo laser treatment and to minimise the risk of complications. Our clinical professionals will provide you with detailed instructions on how to treat your skin after treatment. Here are some general aftercare tips to keep in mind:
Keep the treated area clean: Use a gentle cleanser and lukewarm water to clean the treated area twice a day. Avoid using hot water, harsh soaps, or exfoliants for at least one week after treatment.
Moisturise: Apply a gentle, fragrance-free moisturiser cream to the area to hydrate and soothe the skin.
No sun exposure: Avoid the sun as much as possible for at least two weeks after treatment, and use broad-spectrum sun cream with an SPF of 30 or even 50+ if you must be outdoors. Wear protective clothing, such as a hat and sunglasses, to further minimise sun exposure.
Avoid strenuous exercise: Avoid strenuous exercise, hot baths or showers, and any activities that cause excessive sweating for at least 24 hours after treatment.
No smoking: Smoking can slow down the healing and increase the risk of complications. Reduce or stop (if possible) smoking for at least two weeks after treatment.
Don't pick or scratch: Avoid picking, scratching, or rubbing the treated area, as this can delay the healing process and raise the chance of infection.
Follow our instructions: Our practitioners may provide you with additional instructions based on your individual needs and the specifics of your treatment. Follow these instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results.
By following these aftercare tips, you can help promote healing, minimise side effects, and achieve the best possible results from Halo laser treatment.
What is the downtime after Halo laser?
The amount of downtime after Halo laser treatment can vary depending on the intensity of the treatment and individual healing rates. However, in general, most patients can expect to experience some degree of downtime after the procedure.
Immediately after the treatment, your skin may appear slightly tender to the touch, red and swollen. You may also experience a mild to moderate burning or itching sensation, which can be managed with topical creams and pain medication if needed. These side effects are generally temporary and will decrease within a few days after treatment.
In the days following the procedure, the outer layer of your skin may begin to peel, revealing new, healthy skin underneath. This is a regular part of the healing stage and can last up to a week, depending on the intensity of the treatment.
During this time, it's important to avoid sun exposure and follow your healthcare professional's post-treatment instructions carefully to ensure the best possible results and minimise the risk of complications.
Overall, most patients can expect to experience some degree of downtime after Halo laser treatment, but the length and severity of downtime can vary depending on individual factors.
Our skin professionals can provide you with more detailed information on what to expect based on your individual needs and the specifics of your treatment.
Can I have halo laser on the neck, chest arms or legs?
Yes, Halo laser treatment can be performed on various areas of the body, including the neck, chest, arms, and legs.
However, it's important to note that the intensity and number of treatments required may vary depending on the area being treated and the severity of your skin concerns.
It's also essential to remember that aftercare instructions and potential side effects may vary depending on the area being treated.
For example, if you are having Halo laser treatment on your legs, you may need to avoid wearing tight clothing or engaging in activities that cause excessive sweating for a longer period of time than if you were having treatment on your face.
Our practitioners can provide you with more detailed aftercare instructions based on the area being treated.
What are the side effects and risks of Halo laser treatment?
Halo laser treatment is generally considered safe, but like any medical procedure, it does carry some risks and potential side effects. Some of the most common risks and side effects of Halo laser treatment include:
Redness and swelling: Immediately following the treatment, you may experience some degree of redness and swelling in the treated area. This is a standard part of the healing stage and should go away within a few days to a week after treatment.
Peeling and flaking: As the outer layer of your skin begins to peel and flake off, you may experience some dryness and itching in the treated area. This is also a regular part of the healing stage and should reduce within a few days to a week after treatment.
Discomfort: You may experience some degree of discomfort during the procedure, such as a warm, prickling sensation. However, this can usually be managed with pain medication if needed.
Infection: While rare, there is a small risk of infection following Halo laser treatment. To minimise this risk, it's important to follow our practitioners post-treatment instructions carefully.
Hyperpigmentation or hypopigmentation: In rare cases, Halo laser treatment can cause changes in skin pigmentation, either causing the skin to become darker (hyperpigmentation) or lighter (hypopigmentation) than the surrounding skin.
Scarring: While uncommon, there is a small risk of scarring following Halo laser treatment, especially if the treatment is performed at a high intensity or on sensitive areas of the skin.
It's important to discuss the potential risks and side effects of Halo laser treatment with our practitioners before undergoing the procedure. They will supply you with more precise details based on your individual needs and the specifics of your treatment.
