How does HALO® work?

HALO is a two in one laser treatment, offering two types of technology it has the unique ability to provide surface renewal while achieving deep dermal restoration at the same time. When these two wavelengths are combined, it gives patients corrective results without the downtime of traditional ablative lasers. 

The non ablative wavelength of 1470nm is used to focus on the deeper layers of the skin. It is able to pass through the upper layer of the skin and heat the underlying dermal tissue without creating any harm. Working from the inside, collagen growth is encouraged leading to tightening, firming and lifting of the skin, known as remodelling. The ablative wavelength of 2940nm is used to remove the layers of damaged and dead skin sitting on the surface. This wavelength is able to target sun damage, uneven tone and poor texture.

Post treatment you will experience some swelling and erythema (redness), this should reduce after a couple days.

What can I expect?

Prior to arrival at Montrose 

From 4 weeks prior to treatment avoid any aggressive treatments such as ablative laser or chemical peel.

From 2 weeks prior to treatment avoid abrasive treatments, including; laser, micro needling, prolonged or recent UV exposure, aggressive facials, irritant topical products (Acids, Retinol, Vitamin C or mechanical scrubs). 

One week prior to treatment you will need to come to Montrose to be patch tested, this will take 10 minutes.

If you are taking blood thinners, including NSAIDS such as Asprin or Ibuprofen, you should discuss with your doctor whether it is possible to discontinue their use throughout the course of your treatment. 

On arrival at Montrose 

Your Practitioner will remove any makeup and discuss any concerns and review your medical history, after which the treatment area will be photographed. Numbing cream or local anaesthetic will be applied for 45 minutes.

Halo® treatments are entirely bespoke and can range from light and superficial to deep and aggressive, your doctor will set the parameters based on the goals you have agreed with them. The treatment area will then be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure an even treatment. During the treatment you will feel heat in the areas treated. Once the treatment is completed, the sensation of heat will increase and you will likely develop erythema (local skin redness) and oedema (swelling) which can last a couple of days. The sensation of heat builds for thirty minutes to an hour after treatment before dissipating. After treatment micro-crusting will develop and typically small dots of skin will start shedding in 3 to 5 days post treatment. During this period of the healing process it is very important to keep your skin well hydrated using appropriate products for your skin. 


Depending on your treatment plan, results will typically be seen two weeks after the last treatment.
