The Halo laser, a cutting-edge skin resurfacing technology, has become a popular choice for those seeking smoother, younger-looking skin. But like any medical procedure, it’s important to understand the potential Halo laser side effects before diving in. We have performed countless Halo laser treatments in our office and are the leading provider in the area.
What is the Halo Laser?
The Halo laser is the first of its kind combining two wavelengths of light of ablative and non-ablative laser.
This combination approach delivers dramatic results for:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Sun damage and age spots
- Acne scars
The Glowing Side of the Halo
So, what can you expect after a Halo laser treatment? Most patients experience:
- Improved skin tone and texture: You’ll start to see noticeable results within a few weeks, with full effects peaking at 3-6 months.
- Immediate redness and swelling: This is normal and usually subsides within a few days.
- Mild flaking and peeling: As the treated skin sheds, new, healthy skin emerges.
Is a Halo Laser Treatment Safe?
While the Halo laser is generally safe, in rare cases a small complications can occur. It is important to follow pre and post care instructions to minimize this.
