BEFORE & AFTER HALO LASER
Actual patient of Dr. J. J. Wendel Plastic Surgery.
RADIANT SKIN WITH HALO
As we age, we lose our youthful glow from various causes:
- Natural aging
- Cumulative sun damage
- Environmental factors
Your skin can develop fine lines, sun spots or wrinkles, which leads to a dull, older looking appearance. Until now, it was hard to change this without weeks of downtime because previous laser treatments were too deep and aggressive, or too shallow to change the damage. With Halo laser, we can visibly erase years of damage by targeting the exact depth of treatment your skin needs to restore its youthful glow.
Halo brings back your glow with:
- Tunable, customizable treatment that precisely targets skin damage
- Reduces pore size which tightens skin and creates luminosity
- Improves fine lines and wrinkles with Halo Hybrid treatment
- Flexible amount of downtime – we tailor your treatment to your goals while adhering to your schedule.

COMMON QUESTIONS ABOUT HALO LASER
What are my results?
Our goal is to change your skin! You will see better texture and tone, removal of discoloration, smaller pore size, fine line reduction*, and a beautiful glow with an increase in reflectivity. The light reflection of our skin should be more youthful.
What happens during my treatment?
You will arrive an hour prior to treatment time for photos and a VISIA Skin Analysis so we can have a baseline analysis of your skins present condition. Then, our clinician will apply topical numbing to your skin. All treatment areas are measured with Halo motion tracking technology so that we give you precise, even treatment. Our provider will treat each section evenly by rolling the hand piece gently over your skin until the appropriate energy level is reached.
How many treatments do I need?
Short answer: You decide! During your consult, your provider will discuss your treatment goals and you can choose to have several, more shallow treatments over several months, or you may decide to have one to two more aggressive combination of treatments. We can customize every aspect of your treatment to your timeline and your skin’s needs. Everyone’s skin is different, and everyone’s goals may be different. We recognize this.
What does the treatment feel like?
With integrated cooling technology and topical numbing, most patients are very comfortable. Should you choose to have a more aggressive treatment, we offer a premedication regimen to ensure that you remain relaxed and comfortable throughout your treatment. Our providers constantly monitor your comfort level. Most of our patients describe a combination of heat/cold/prickly sensations, but not pain. You will feel heat in your skin after the treatment like the warmth of a mild sunburn, usually lasting an hour or so. Then it subsides.
When can I resume normal activities?
During the first 24 hours, you will be asked to relax and follow our post treatment instructions, using your post procedure skin care kit. After the first two days, your skin may begin to lightly peel. Depending on the depth of treatment, you may have some swelling. If so, sleep with your head elevated for the first couple of days. You can wear makeup or tinted sunscreen. Face treatments often show “bronzing” after 2-3 days as your skin gets rid of unwanted debris. By the third or fourth day, you will see new, glowing skin appear, replacing the old, aged-appearing skin.
When do I see results, and how long do they last?
Your initial results are visible 3-6 days after your treatment, but your skin actually continues to improve over time (weeks to months) with collagen remodeling underneath the skin’s surface. Within the first 2-3 weeks, most patients will see their pigmentation improve, followed by deeper skin regeneration that keeps improving over the ensuing months.
How do I maximize and maintain my results?
We will tailor a skin care regimen that is appropriate for your skin type and skin goals. The use of protective sunscreen and the avoidance of prolonged exposure to the sun’s harmful rays will help make your results last. We are here to partner with you to extend the glow and beauty of your skin!
