HALO® HYBRID FRACTIONAL LASER
The HALO® laser is the first hybrid laser that targets multiple layers of skin and addresses multiple skin concerns. It has less downtime than other fractional treatments and is safe for most skin types.
What makes this treatment unique is that it delivers both fractional (ablative) and non-fractional (non-ablative) wavelengths to the same area. This means it combines both types of lasers for the optimal result in just one treatment. Ablative lasers treat the outer layer of the skin for more straightforward improvement, while non-ablative lasers bypass this layer to target the deeper layers of the skin where collagen is produced. This deeper laser energy heats the skin, stimulating its natural regenerative process.

TAKE YEARS OFF YOUR COMPLEXION
Compared to other ablative lasers, HALO® offers a less painful treatment and quicker healing recovery. In the past, you had to choose between a procedure that offered really great results but required a lengthy recovery, or a procedure with a fast recovery but marginal results. Now with HALO® you get the best of both worlds: great results with minimal downtime. HALO® combines deep dermal revitalization with epidermal renewal for a combined synergistic effect you can’t get with any other treatment.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF HALO®?
HALO® is a complete skin revitalization laser treatment. You will see overall improvements in your skin including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, improved skin reflectivity and glow, and significant removal of discoloration.
WHAT AREAS CAN YOU TREAT WITH HALO®?
HALO® can treat bothersome areas on your face or body and can be used on all skin types. Popular off-face treatments include the neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs. So if you’re bothered by any of the following conditions, try HALO®, your skin will love you for it!
• Sun damage
• Visible signs of aging
• Enlarged pores
• Poor skin appearance
WHAT DOES A HALO® LASER FEEL LIKE?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, you typically experience very little discomfort. Many patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for a couple of hours, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
WHEN WILL I SEE MY HALO® RESULTS?
HOW LONG DO THE RESULTS LAST?
You will see initial results between two and five days after your HALO® treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
HALO® results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times by using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better-looking skin.
HALO® and BBL™ Combination Therapy
Both HALO® and BBL™ are minimally invasive procedures that produce results with customizable downtime. For patients seeking enhanced results, these treatments can be performed in tandem on the same day to better address texture, fine lines, or pigmentation concerns.
THE SOLUTION TO PAIN AND ANXIETY DURING TREATMENTS:
One of the biggest concerns our Dubuque patients have when considering some of the more advanced treatments like Moxi and dermal filler is pain management. This fear is understandable; the human brain is hardwired to experience anxiety at the prospect of pain. At Faces Medspa, we make every effort to keep our patients completely comfortable before, during, and after their procedures. Fortunately, we have a powerful tool at our disposal: an innovative sedation system called Pro-Nox that’s designed to minimize both anxiety and pain.
If you're interested in learning more about how Pro-Nox can be incorporated into your comfortable treatment, call Faces Medspa today.
