"Dr Haydon and his staff are top shelf. I had made appointments with other doctors and decided on Dr. Haydon because of his bedside manner, the post op pictures, the 3d Vector Imagery, the fact that the surgical center was in the building was also a plus.Everything was fully explained and my he exceeded my expectations. Never did I feel pushed into anything, or ever too insecure to voice my thoughts and opinions. He and his staff make you feel like family even months after the surgery. I can't say enough about Dr Haydon, his staff, and the Skin Care Clinic that I still go to every 3-4 months."- H.G. / Google / Sep 26, 2019

Halo procedures use fractional laser technology to penetrate the top layer of skin. Depending on the laser setting, light energy is applied to stimulate the creation of collagen and to resurface the top layer of skin. During the procedure, the practitioner will use the Halo“smart scanning” hand piece to achieve this rejuvenation process. Halo can be applied to the face, neck, stomach, upper and inner arms, legs, thighs and buttocks.
What to Expect
Patients will have different experiences with Halo depending on whether they are receiving an ablative or nonablative treatment. During nonablative Halo treatments, patients should anticipate mild to moderate discomfort during their procedure. Patients receiving ablative Halo treatments should anticipate moderate to significant discomfort during their treatment. For this reason, anesthesia is sometimes recommended. Although redness and minor swelling in the treated areas are common immediately following the procedure, patients undergoing this treatment can resume normal activity up to 2 days after their treatment for nonablative treatments and up to a week after their treatment for ablative treatments

Halo Laser FAQs
Individuals who are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and dermabrasion and who are not comfortable with a surgical procedure are among the most ideal candidates for Halo.
How Long do the Results Last?
The results will vary patient-to-patient depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Visible results have been present up to 5 years following treatment. Since Halo treatments can be repeated as many times as your practitioner deems necessary, the results can last much longer than 5 years with proper maintenance. Because this treatment has the ability to be repeated, it remains at the forefront of non-invasive anti-aging skin treatments.
How Many Treatments?
The amount of treatments required to obtain optimal results vary depending on variables such as skin type, degree of treatment required, etc. Generally, patients that choose nonablative Halo can expect to receive 3-5 treatments with several months in between treatments, while patients that choose ablative Halo usually only require 1 treatment.
