How Does the Halo Laser Treatment Compare to Other Laser Treatments?

By October 16, 2018May 11th, 2023Laser Treatment

Halo Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatment is a hybrid fractional laser treatment that can provide clearer, more even skin with reduced signs of aging and damage. But Halo isn’t the only laser treatment on the market. How does Halo compare to alternative laser treatments?

About Halo Laser Treatment

A woman thinking to herself

Halo is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, meaning it uses both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to treat the same skin treatment zone simultaneously. After one to two treatments, patients can see a reduction of pores, dark spots, and fine lines, as well as a more even, uniform skin tone across the entire face. Halo requires only a topical anesthetic, and patients can even apply makeup only 24 hours after the procedure.

Halo vs. Fraxel Dual Laser

Like the Halo Laser Treatment, the Fraxel Dual Laser uses a resurfacing laser that helps reduce signs of aging or imperfections in the skin. The most noteworthy difference between Halo Laser Treatment and the Fraxel Laser is that Halo is the first hybrid fractional laser, meaning the two wavelengths used are contained in the same head. This makes the Halo treatment more efficient, with less discomfort and down time.

Halo vs. Forever Young BBL

Forever Young BBL has been approved by the FDA to address brown or red spots, as well as acne and hair removal. Although both lasers are effective, Halo only requires a once-yearly treatment by an aesthetician. By comparison, dermatologists usually recommend three to six Forever Young BBL treatments initially, with ongoing maintenance every three to five months.

Halo vs. Clear and Brilliant

Clear and Brilliant’s lasers are absorbed by water in the skin and are not absorbed by lighter or darker pigment like other laser treatments. This means that it may be more effective for those with darker tones. However, Halo can resurface 25 to 30 percent of the skin, whereas Clear and Brilliant’s less powerful laser can only resurface around 5 percent.
