What is Halo Laser
The dual-action approach of Halo laser promotes skin rejuvenation, addressing concerns such as wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone and texture, enlarged pores, and acne scars. The treatment is customisable to each patient’s individual needs meaning the depth and intensity of the laser treatment can be adjusted based on the specific concerns being addressed and the desired outcome.
The fractional technology treats the skin in microscopic zones meaning that channels of normal skin are left between the channels of treated skin. This allows for faster healing and minimal downtime.
Consult with our qualified team to determine if Halo Laser is the right solution for your needs.

What to Expect
During the procedure, a topical numbing cream will be applied to ensure you are more comfortable. The treatment itself involves the use of a handheld device that delivers laser energy to the targeted areas. The duration of the treatment session may vary depending on the size of the treatment area and the extent of the concerns being addressed.
After the treatment, you will experience temporary redness, marked swelling, and an intense sunburn-like sensation. These side effects generally subside within a few days.
How to Prepare for Treatment
Best results are achieved by avoiding excessive sun exposure in the weeks leading up to treatment. Apply sunscreen with a high SPF, and limit sun exposure.
Make sure your skin is pre treated by the use of active home care as directed by the clinic. This will ensure the best long term outcome is achieved.
If you are prone to cold sores, you will need a script for anti-viral medications from Dr. Holmes prior to the laser treatment.
On the day of the treatment, arrive with a clean face free of makeup, creams or any other skincare products.
Frequently Asked Questions
Is Halo Laser effective?
Halo laser is an effective cutting-edge technology for improving various skin concerns, including texture, color, elasticity, sun damage, and acne scarring.
What is the downtime from Halo laser?
Downtime and recovery vary based on the treatment intensity and desired outcome. It can range from minimal redness and puffiness for a day to very noticeable swelling and shedding of skin debris for 3-4 days. Compared to traditional laser resurfacing, Halo Laser offers less downtime.
Does Halo Laser hurt?
Topical anaesthesia cream is applied, and integrated cooling technology provides comfort during the treatment. Most clients feel heat, prickling, and stinging, with discomfort varying based on the intensity of the treatment. The intense heat sensation subsides after a few hours.
What happens immediately after my Halo treatment?
Immediately after the treatment, the face may feel super hot and appear red. Puffiness and warmth can persist for a day or more, followed by sandpaper-like skin texture and brown spots that gradually exfoliate. By 5-7 days, the skin typically becomes slightly pink.
When will I see results from my session?
Improvements are noticeable after 5 to 7 days, but the skin continues to improve over time. Collagen stimulation and pigmentation improvements are observed in the following weeks, with ongoing enhancements in fine lines and texture possible even months later.
