Will I experience any pain with my HALO treatment?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort with a topical anesthetic and the HALO’s integrated cooling technology. You may feel a slight prickling sensation as the device crisscrosses over your skin.

Are there any side effects with laser resurfacing?

Once your treatment is over, you might feel some sensitivity to the area. Your skin may appear a bit flushed, similar to a minor sunburn. There could be a bit of swelling that will resolve itself quickly.

Will I need more than one HALO Laser Resurfacing treatment?

HALO is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. The HALO laser technology is significantly more advanced and flexible than earlier skin treatment options, which means it can take fewer treatments than in the past to address most issues. You can choose to have one or two more aggressive treatments or decide that you’d rather take your time with a less aggressive approach but choose to undergo milder treatments more often. Determining the number of treatments that you need will be determined with the help of Dr. Shapiro.

When will I see results?

After your first HALO treatment, you will start to see improvement in your skin’s tone and texture in two and five days.
