Halo Laser Davis

What is Halo?

The Halo Laser is a state of the art laser. It is the most innovative laser developed to improve the appearance of skin tone, texture, fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and pore size, without extensive downtime. Halo treatments renew the skin erasing years of sun damage and aging. Halo treatments result in radiant skin without the downtime and without the pain of older resurfacing lasers.

How much are treatments?

Price ranges from $1299-$1950 per treatment. Price depends on the areas treated and the number of treatments purchased.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments necessary will depend on the condition of your skin at the start of treatment and your individual treatment goals. Most patients will require between 2-6 treatments with maintenance treatments done every 6-18 months. The number of treatments will also depend on the aggressiveness of the treatment. More aggressive treatments require 1-2 treatments, while less aggressive treatments require 4-6 treatments. Frequency of maintenance treatments will be influenced by your skin care regime and how well your skin ages. As with any procedure, these treatments do not stop the aging process. We encourage all of our patients to protect their investment by -incorporating high quality skin care products into their home skin care regimen. As an incentive, we offer credit towards these products with all of our laser treatments, called Protect Your Investment.

How do I prepare for the procedure?

We require ABSOLUTELY NO SUN EXPOSURE 2 WEEKS BEFORE AND 2 WEEKS AFTER TREATMENT. No self-tanners evident on skin. Prior to treatment patients will be given a prescription for medication to decrease swelling and to decrease risk of infection.

What do I expect during the procedure?

One hour before the procedure a topical numbing cream will be applied to the skin. Dr. Noll performs all laser treatments. During the procedure protective eye goggles will be placed on the patient and the treatment performed. Treatments will typically last 30 minutes to an hour. During the procedure patients will feel the laser handpiece rolling along the skin and hear the laser firing. Refreshing cold air blows on the treatment site throughout the procedure. Most patients rate the discomfort between 1 and 4 out of 10 on the pain scale.

How do I maintain my results?

Results are long lasting. Once the treatment goal is met, repeat treatments are recommend every 12-18 months depending on how well the skin is aging and the type of home regimen the patient follows. Dr. Noll recommends a less aggressive treatment like BBL or Laser Genesis every 6-12 months.

What are other treatment options?

Depending on the condition being treated whether is fine lines and wrinkles or hyperpigmentation, there are alternative treatments that are either less aggressive with little to no downtime or more economical. These alternative treatments typically require more treatment sessions and more time to reach treatment goals.

Who will be performing my procedure?

Dr. Noll personally performs all laser treatments.

What are the risks associated with the procedure?

With any laser procedure there is a risk of a laser burn resulting in darkening of the skin(hyperpigmentation) or scarring. Depending on the laser hairloss in the treated area may also occur.

What can I expect during the treatment?

Patients typically arrive 45 minutes to an hour before the procedure for topical anesthetic application. During the treatment the patient’s eyes are protected with laser goggles. The face is divided into 5 treatment zones and each zone is treated to a predetermined treatment level based on skin type and treatment goals.

What does Halo laser treatment feel like? Does it hurt?

Most patients experience minimal discomfort during the procedure. Patients typically describe the laser treatment as a tolerable warm prickly sensation. Immediately after the treatment, most patients will continue to feel a sunburn-like sensation for an additional 15 minutes to an hour depending on the intensity of the treatment. More intense treatments may cause a more sever sensation for a longer period of time.

When can I expect after the procedure? When can I wear sunscreen? Makeup?

Detailed post procedure instructions are explained to patients both verbally and in writing after the procedure. For the first 24 hours we recommend the application of Cicalfate and ice packs as needed. The initial sensation is similar to an intense sunburn. After the first 24 hours your skin may begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup and or sunscreen. Absolute sun avoidance is required for at least 2 weeks before and after the procedure. After 2-3 days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. You may also notice swelling especially around day 3. By days 4 to 7 your skin will slough the bronzed skin revealing your new skin, usually a pink healthy glow, also known as the HALO GLOW.

When can I return to my usual skincare routine?

Patients usually return to their usual skin care routine 1-2 weeks after the procedure depending on the intensity of the treatment.

What are my payment options?

We accept cash or credit cards. We also offer CareCredit.
