  • The two wavelengths target both deep and superficial layers of the skin.
  • Each wavelength is tunable, so it can be done on virtually any skin type

    • Sun damage

What To Expect

Before Treatment: Sun Protection is mandatory.  Bravia Dermatology will order a topical numbing (anesthetic) for you to apply before the Halo.  We cannot treat recently sun-exposed or tanned skin.  When your melanocytes (pigment producing cells) have been recently "turned on" by sun exposure, there is risk of a suboptimal result.  Also, if you have active cold sores at time of treatment, we will need to reschedule and anti-virals are recommended.  For best results, we recommend a cosmetic consult a few weeks before your first treatment, so we can get photos and get you started on an effective, customized pre-treatment skin care regimen.

During Treatment: Topical numbing plus the chilled air stream from the Halo handpiece keep you comfortable during the treatment.

Immediately After Treatment: After the numbing wears off, your skin will feel warm to hot for approximately 1 hour.  Afterwards, your skin may feel slightly tight but it should not be uncomfortable.   Strict sun avoidance and sun protection is mandatory after Halo treatments.

Days following treatment: Wash your face with a gentle cleanser (e.g. ZO Hydrating Cleanser, EltaMD Foaming Facial Cleanser) and use a gentle moisturizer (e.g. ZO Revitarol, EltaMD PM therapy) for the first week after treatment.  Makeup and mineral sunscreens (e.g. ZO Oclipse, Elta MD UV Physical) may be worn as long as there are no "raw" areas -- which is usually on post-laser day 1 or 2, depending on treatment settings.  For a few days, your skin may feel "sandpaper-like" while the MENDS (small bronze dots that look like tiny freckles) work their way out of the skin.  Do not aggressively scrub these off.  They are easily covered with makeup and should fall off by day 4 or 5, revealing your "Halo Glow."

Months following treatment:  Collagen will continue to grow from the Halo treatment for 6-8 months following treatment.  You will continue to see improvement throughout.  For more rapid improvement, Halo treatments may be combined with BBL (Broad Based Light) treatments or may be repeated every 8-12 weeks for a series of 3-4 treatments.
