How does the HALO laser work?

HALO works by combining two types of laser technology in one treatment — ablative and nonablative. Ablative lasers deliver a wavelength of light to remove the outer layer of skin, while nonablative lasers generate heat beneath the tissue to encourage collagen production. This combination allows for deeper skin rejuvenation, targeting both surface imperfections and underlying issues.

Who is a candidate for HALO?

The HALO laser is suitable for many skin types and concerns, which means it's a versatile treatment option. Of course, a consultation with a skin care professional is necessary before moving forward. During this appointment, Dr. Araña-Domondon will examine your skin thoroughly. Those with active acne breakouts may not be eligible for HALO until the acne has cleared up.

Ideal candidates should understand that recovery is an important part of the HALO process. Depending on the depth of treatment, some patients require 2 – 3 weeks to recover in Puyallup, WA. Our staff can provide detailed aftercare instructions to ensure optimal healing and results.

What issues can HALO address?

Concordia Star Medical Aesthetics helps patients with a variety of skin concerns, including:

  • Wrinkles: HALO has been shown to improve the appearance of fine lines and creases, including those around the mouth and eyes.
  • Scarring: Old acne scars or facial scars can impact your self-esteem. HALO reduces scarring for a smoother, more even complexion.
  • Sun damage: Over time, sun exposure causes visible signs of aging, like brown spots and uneven skin tone. HALO targets these areas to create a youthful look.
  • Enlarged pores: It can be hard to treat enlarged pores with over-the-counter exfoliants. HALO laser treatment minimizes pores to help give you smoother skin.
  • Actinic keratoses: These rough, scaly patches may be caused by sun exposure. HALO removes the top layers of skin to reveal healthier skin underneath.

What does a HALO appointment involve?

During a HALO appointment, Dr. Araña-Domondon will clean and numb the skin using a topical anesthetic. The laser handpiece is then moved over the targeted areas to deliver the combined ablative and nonablative energy. This process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area involved.

Some redness and swelling should be expected shortly after the procedure. You may also notice some peeling for 5 – 7 days as your skin heals. Rest assured, these are all normal reactions as your skin rejuvenates itself. Our patients are often amazed by the results, which continue to improve in the weeks following treatment.
