Does halo laser hurt?

The amount of pain experienced during a Halo laser treatment can vary depending on individual pain tolerance and the settings used. However, most people describe it as a warm prickling sensation or a feeling of intense heat.

Here’s what you can expect: #

  • Your skin will cleanse and a topical anesthetic cream will apply to numb the area.
  • This can take 30 to 45 minutes to take effect.

During the treatment: #

  • You may feel warmth, tingling, stinging, or a snapping sensation as the laser pulses across your skin.

  • Your skin may feel hot, red, and sunburned for several hours.
  • You may also experience some swelling, itching, and peeling for a few days.
  • Most people describe the discomfort as manageable and comparable to a mild sunburn.

Factors affecting pain: #

  • Individual pain tolerance: Some people have naturally higher pain tolerance than others.
  • Treatment settings: The depth and intensity of the laser will affect the level of pain experienced.
  • Area being treated: Certain areas of the skin, such as the face, may be more sensitive than others.

Pain management: #

  • Topical anesthetic cream: This can help to numb the skin and reduce discomfort.
  • Oral pain medication: Your doctor may prescribe pain medication to take before and after the treatment.
  • Cooling measures: A cooling fan or cold compresses can help to soothe the skin after the treatment.
