sensation during treatment. He or she will treat a section of your face at a time by rolling the HALO hand piece in a
What should I expect after treatment?
The treatment area will likely feel warm for 1-2 hours after treatment. The mild warmth may continue for 12-24 hours. You can place a cold compress over your skin during this time and/or mist your skin if you need relief.
The treated area will be visibly red for up to 7 days after treatment. Redness is typically most apparent on day 3 after treatment. Swelling is not uncommon between days 2-4 but should subside after day 4.
What results can I expect?
You will see improvements in the appearance of skin in addition to significant removal of discolouration, improvement in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow.
Can I return to normal activities after the treatment?
Absolutely. For the first 24 hours, you should keep your skin protected according to instructions, but after that you will be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours, your skin will begin to peel, and that may take up to 5 days depending upon your level of treatments, but you will be able to put on makeup.
When will I see results?
You will see initial results between day 2 and 5 after your HALO treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest improvement in the first 2 to 3 weeks.
How long will my results last?
Your HALO results can last for years to come, as long as you continue to keep your new healthy skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen.
