Shrink Enlarged Pores with HALO™ Laser Treatments
Many people are surprised to learn that their enlarged pores may have nothing to do with oil buildup or hygiene.

At Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics in Puyallup, WA Dr. Ladie Araña-Domondon and our team of skin care experts help patients get smoother skin and less noticeable pores with the state-of-the-art HALO laser treatment system.

Is the HALO laser better than other laser skin treatments?
Most lasers used for skin rejuvenation are either classified as fractional or non-fractional. The HALO laser is among the first and only of its kind to incorporate both technologies for a combination of ablative and non-ablative treatment techniques. During a skin treatment with the HALO laser, energy is delivered to both the outer surface of the skin and the deeper layers of tissue for maximum efficacy and an optimal outcome. Unlike many other skin treatments, the HALO laser treatment system can address skin concerns both related and unrelated to age.
What can be treated with the HALO skin laser?
Some of the most common complaints that can be improved or even corrected with a HALO laser skin treatment include:
- Lines and wrinkles
- Early to mild skin laxity
- Sun damage
- Dark spots
- Uneven skin tone
- Hyperpigmentation and melasma
- Rough skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Acne scars and other types of scarring
How does HALO laser skin rejuvenation help shrink your pores?
The combined technology behind the HALO laser skin treatment system helps to address concerns on the outer layer of the skin while also boosting the skin’s health from within. By stimulating the production of collagen and elastin for a tightening and contracting effect, the HALO laser helps to minimize the appearance of lines, wrinkles, and even visible pores, giving the patient a much smoother, more youthful, and more lifted-looking complexion overall.
How soon will my pores be smaller after HALO laser treatment?
While preliminary improvements in your complexion may be noticeable as soon as one week after treatment, it can take several weeks or months for collagen supplies to begin regenerating. Over the course of this time, patients should begin to see their skin looking healthier, firmer, and more lifted. Patients who had concerns regarding enlarged or visible pores should begin to see their complexion smoothing out around this time, with their pores becoming less and less visible over time. Because the results of HALO laser treatment are not permanent, patients typically schedule maintenance treatments at regular intervals to keep their complexion consistently smooth and healthy over a longer period of time. Based on your skin tone, skin irregularities, and other variables, Dr. Araña-Domondon will recommend the most appropriate follow-up schedule for your HALO laser treatments.
