These various factors can cause an equally broad array of cosmetic concerns such as hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, and dull skin.

How does the Halo™ hybrid laser work?
The Halo™ is a dual-wavelength laser that utilizes both ablative and non-ablative technology. As a result, Dr. Reinertson can address visible and imperceptible aesthetic concerns that are located on the upper and lower layers of the skin. Fully customizable, the Halo™ can precisely target your individual concerns while reducing downtime compared with more aggressive procedures. Treatment time is similarly reduced, helping you to revitalize your skin faster and with greater comfort than ever before.
What are the benefits?
With its advanced precision, the Halo™ can address a multitude of common concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, large pores, and uneven skin tone and texture. The state-of-the-art technology offers comprehensive rejuvenation and can dramatically boost your skin’s natural radiance, called the “Halo™ glow.” Furthermore, this therapy can be customized to provide milder, more conservative treatment or more advanced revitalization determined by your anatomic needs and lifestyle preferences.
What should I expect during treatment?
To ensure you have the most comfortable and pleasant experience possible, we will apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area. The hybrid laser will draw the pigmented and damaged cells to the skin’s surface, where they will slough off naturally within a few days. During the procedure, you may notice a warm feeling and a prickling sensation, which should fade soon after the process is complete. Depending on your unique treatment plan, a single Halo™ session should take about two hours, which includes time to numb your skin for enhanced comfort.
When will I see results?
The Halo™ hybrid fractional laser is designed to provide more extensive rejuvenation faster and with less downtime than traditional single-wavelength technologies. Therefore, you should notice visible enhancement in your skin’s tone, texture, pore size, and radiance within seven days following the procedure. As your skin cells go through their natural lifecycle, these benefits should continue to improve over the course of a few months. The number of laser sessions required to achieve your desired outcome will depend on several factors, which Dr. Reinertson will discuss with you during your initial consultation.
