Frequently Asked Questions

Who is a candidate for HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser?

As HALO is a fantastic treatment for any skin type, skin tone or age, many people find themselves seeing phenomenal results from HALO treatments, and combination treatments that include HALO. Our medical aesthetics specialist knows the complex anatomy of skin, inside and out, so they will be able to assess if HALO is the ideal treatment for you.

While you may have one or some of the skin conditions or concerns above, this may not necessarily mean that you are an ideal candidate for HALO. 8 West Clinic provides complimentary and comprehensive skin consultations for patients so we can tailor a treatment plan that is bespoke to you. We host a range of skin treatment options, including Microneedling, IPL/Broadband Laser, Moxi, ProFractional Laser and TRL – all designed to treat a multitude of skin concerns.

How does HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser work?

HALO is a state-of-the-art laser treatment that eliminates years of damage and restores your skin’s youthful glow. This powerful medical-grade laser treatment combines two wavelengths to simultaneously target the top layer of skin and the deeper tissue beneath the surface. The combination of wavelengths repairs visible signs of sun damage and aging, like discolouration and uneven skin tone on the surface layer, while also heating the tissues under the skin to kick collagen production into high gear, resulting in firmer, smoother skin over time.

HALO’s dual-wave technology is highly customized, depending on your unique needs, and does double-duty in maximizing results with minimal downtime.

How is the HALO laser treatment performed?

When you arrive for your HALO laser session, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the entire treatment area to numb the skin. Once the treatment begins, the handpiece is rolled over your skin, sending wavelengths to both the top and bottom layers of the skin and tissue.

Pigment from the damaged skin is brought to the surface and will peel off in the first few days after treatment and the tissues below the surface will continue to regenerate through the body’s natural healing process.

Patients will see significant changes in their skin tone and texture after just one session, although many people choose to have two or more treatments, depending on their skin’s goals and the type of results that they want to achieve.

What should I expect with a HALO laser treatment?

Thanks to the numbing cream that keeps you comfortable, a HALO treatment simply feels warm and prickly as it moves along your skin. Depending on the area or areas you are treating, sessions take around 20 minutes to 1 hour.

After your HALO laser treatment, you will be a bit red and sensitive, and the area will feel quite hot, but you’ll be able to go back to your normal activities right away. Keep in mind that it is imperative to have your skin protected for the first 24 hours, meaning staying makeup-free and keeping out of the sun, so some patients opt to take a day off work for recovery.

Your skin will begin peeling after 3 to 4 days, revealing the glowing, rejuvenated, refreshed skin below. Over the coming weeks, you’ll see improvements in your skin’s tone and texture, with optimal results visible about 2 to 3 months after your treatment. This is due to the depth that the laser reaches and stimulates collagen in the dermis (under the layer of your skin). Leaving you looking and feeling firmer, smoother, and more radiant from deep within.

Many patients are eager to find out how long HALO results last. With proper sun protection and skincare, you’ll be able to enjoy beautifully rejuvenated skin for several years, but many opt to return for yearly maintenance sessions, often after the summer season to treat new sun damage.

What is the complimentary HALO Aftercare Kit?

Exclusive to 8 West Clinic patients only!
