How it works

Ideal for all Ages, Skin Tones & Fitzpatrick Skin Types

HALO’s revolutionary technology offers skin resurfacing by growing new cells to replace lasered cells. Skin cells are ablated at multiple depths and densities, causing a fast clearance of microscopic epidermal necrotic debris (MENDs). The MENDs have a coffee grind appearance and take 2–7 days to clear. HALO offers faster healing as it removes the stratum corneum, allowing the MENDs to release and heal quicker than other non-ablative treatments.

To maximize results and reduce downtime, HALO applies tunable non-ablative (1470nm) and ablative (2940nm) wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone. It has an intelligent energy delivery system combined with Dynamic Thermal Optimization to ensure precise, even, and safe treatments for a long-term solution.

Get Started

The treatment experience

Customized to Your Skin’s Needs

Your experience begins with a consult with one of our highly experienced laser technicians. Together, we’ll create a treatment plan that best suits your needs. We review your concerns, expectations, skincare regimen, price estimates, and your relevant medical history during your session. This information helps ensure you get the results you’re looking for with realistic expectations. Skin treatments are 100% personalized and can vary in strength, the number of sessions, and the combination of treatments.

Our Process

What to expect with your HALO treatment

Step 01

Before the Treatment

Minimize sun exposure and avoid red wine the night before as it thins the blood and increases the chance of bruising. One hour prior to your actual treatment, numbing cream will be applied to appropriate areas.

Step 02

During the Treatment

Your technician will customize the energy density settings for best results and your comfort. You’ll feel a prickly, warm sensation as the heat increases. Discomfort is minimal, similar to a gradual sunburn, which decreases as heat dissipates.

Step 03

After the Treatment

When the numbing cream wears off, the heat intensifies. This can be uncomfortable but it will subside after an hour. Use a fan (not ice) to provide relief. In a few days, your skin may peel and the appearance of coffee grounds will develop–an integral part of your healing.

How Much is HALO HFL?

During your consultation, your consultant and the doctor will provide you with a guide as to how many treatments you may require for optimal results. Packages are created to ensure the best pricing. The more treatment areas you do at one time, the more economical it is for you.

Frequently Asked Questions

The HALO HFL is ideal for treating signs of aging or damaged skin texture and discolouration. Being beneficial for all Fitzpatrick skin types and highly customizable, you can achieve vast improvements with only 1–2 treatments. Schedule a consultation with one of our anti-aging expert laser consultants to discuss your specific needs.

The HALO HFL emits two laser beams of differing wavelengths (tunable non-ablative and ablative) to a microscopic treatment zone for maximum results. This intelligent energy delivery combined with dynamic thermal optimization offers skin treatments to the superficial and deep layers of your skin simultaneously. This process triggers your body’s natural healing response. Collagen and elastin are stimulated, and your skin begins its spontaneous repair to unwanted texture and pigmentation.

A detailed consultation is an investigation into your concerns. You’ll meet with a laser technician, nurse, or experienced consultant to see if our clinic meets your needs. The process includes taking a detailed medical and cosmetic history and time to answer all your concerns as we discuss your options with pricing. A customized plan can be created or held off for further consultation. This consultation is for your information. There is no pressure to proceed with treatment until you are sure that you’re on the right track.

HALO and its many innovations allow for fewer treatments than many older technologies and with greater results. This means that you’ll see results within a couple of weeks. Your in-home maintenance and care will have a significant impact on your results and its longevity. When you follow the care plan carefully, you’ll see significant improvements after the healing of each treatment.

Your effects are considered permanent; however, HALO “rewinds” the aging process rather than stopping the clock. This means it’s essential to use good quality skin care products and apply quality antioxidants and sunscreen to maintain your treatment results.

The Fraxel laser and the HALO lasers are both dual-wavelength technology. The Halo offers more customization for better results and with the equivalent or less downtime. Our aesthetic registered nurses or laser technicians can dial each wavelength up or down, depending on your unique needs and the amount of downtime you can tolerate. The stronger the treatment you’re able to do, the more recovery time you’ll require, but the more visible your benefits will be.

HALO uses precise, hybrid fractional laser technology, while BBL is an intense pulse light treatment. This means BBL treats the skin superficially through a broader range of light wavelengths. In contrast, HALO’s dual-wave technology simultaneously treats both superficial and subdermal layers of the treatment zone, using a customized precision laser.

HALO is designed to treat your skin resurfacing concerns, such as acne scars, surgery scars, stretch marks, wrinkles, sunspots, and other signs of aging, while BBL is approved and primarily used to treat your red and brown spots, sunspots, freckles, rosacea, age spots, and small veins. BBL Clear can treat active acne but requires multiple treatments, often with frequent maintenance programs. BBL is not approved for all skin types, whereas Halo is colourblind.

Immediately after the treatment, your skin will feel hot. Over the following days, you may experience swelling and redness; however, this will resolve on its own. Two to three days post-treatment, your skin will develop a texture, which is best described as resembling coffee grounds. Do not exfoliate! These specks, called microscopic epidermal necrotic debris (MENDs), are integral to your healing process. They should shed over the next 5–7 days, revealing smooth, glowing skin.

The HALO laser is a highly advanced and revolutionary technology in that it has significantly less downtime than its conventional counterparts. You’ll be able to return to makeup after 24 hours post-treatment; however, your skin will return to its regular (and improved) appearance around one-week post-treatment, depending on the treatment area. You’re encouraged to return to your skin regime post-treatment to secure optimal benefits. Your skin will continue to recover and improve for multiple months after the treatment.

Your appointment consists of a few parts beginning with signing consents and determining your ride home, if relevant. Then 30–60 minutes for numbing cream to activate, time for pre-treatment care, and 20–90 minutes of machine time (or more depending on the number of areas being treated.

The HALO laser can treat many concerns, including wrinkle reduction. This treatment has skin tightening properties and increases collagen production. These two processes help reduce the appearance of fine lines, although deeper wrinkles may need a combination of treatments for maximum effectiveness. The only way to know if a treatment is suitable for you is to schedule a consultation with one of our highly qualified staff to configure a treatment regime, which best supports you and your concerns.
