What Do I Need to Know About My HALO® Pro Treatment?
What Is My Recovery Like After HALO®?
Immediately after your HALO® treatment, you can expect some redness, swelling, and mild discomfort for approximately 24 hours. Over the next few days, Microscopic Epidermal Necrotic Debris (MENDs) appear. These are the dead skin cells making their way to the surface and preparing to fall off. It is often referred to as skin “peppering” or a coffee ground appearance. After the healing process is complete (1 to 2 weeks), you will notice a healthier, more radiant appearance to the skin. Improvements in the skin will continue for up to 90 days after treatment.
During the first few days of your HALO® recovery, your skin will likely feel dry and tender. We encourage you to keep the skin hydrated and moisturizer applied several times a day. Gentle, non-exfoliating cleansers can be used beginning 24 hours after treatment.
Keeping your skin protected from the sun before and after treatment is essential. After treatment, SPF should be used daily. Strict sun avoidance for several weeks after treatment is necessary to avoid thermal injuries and pigment changes.
Is HALO® Painful?
While you may feel a warm and tingling sensation in the skin, most patients report little discomfort during their HALO® treatment. After your treatment session, you may experience a sunburn look and sensation in the skin. We recommend applying cool compresses to minimize discomfort. If necessary, over-the-counter medications, such as TYLENOL® or Advil®, can be taken after your treatment.
When Will I See My HALO® Results?
You will see a noticeable youthful glow to your skin anywhere from 10 to 14 days after treatment. Because the increase in collagen and other proteins takes time, you will see continued improvement in the quality, health, and appearance of your treated skin over the course of a few months.
