HALO™: Hybrid Fractional Laser

HALO™, the world’s first Hybrid Fractional Laser, is truly revolutionizing skin resurfacing. HALO delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone, giving you the results you’ll love without the discomfort or downtime of more aggressive resurfacing treatments.


The HALO hybrid fractional laser technology maximizes clinical results while reducing downtime. It really is the best of both worlds! This safe and effective treatment provides an overall enhanced client experience.

Ablative fractional resurfacing is a well-established treatment that vaporizes aged tissue with less thermal injury, with mild to moderate levels of morbidity and downtime. Conversely, non-ablative fractional resurfacing causes thermal injury and tissue coagulation with lower levels of morbidity.


Treat various skin concerns in just 1-2 treatments! Older, non-hybrid technologies often require 5-6 treatments to demonstrate similar texture changes delivered from HALO in terms of pigment correction. The HALO experience is second-to-none: the treatment is comfortable, only a topical anesthetic is recommended (no nerve blocks), and patients can apply makeup within 24 hours of the procedure.

The Halo Laser and Fraxel laser utilize different wavelengths. The Halo treatment uses both short and long wavelengths at the same time. A Fraxel treatment uses longer, more ablative wavelengths. Halo is the preferred treatment solution as it provides improvements to both skin layers and the bonus of little downtime.

Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your clinician may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The clinician will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.

With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most clients will continue to feel mild warmth extreme warmth for 3-24 hours with deeper treatment levels. Swelling and redness is common and expected after treatment. Crusting will start to develop on day 2.

2-3 months after final treatment; many clients do have significant improvement after 1 treatment.

Your Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin. It is important that you make healthy daily choices; food, skincare, de-stress etc…… to achieve your healthiest skin and the best results.

You will experience redness, swelling and crusting for 3-7 days depending on strength of treatment. The healing time will be explained in detail at your complimentary consultation.

This will depend on your specific skin needs. Clients have an average series of 1-3.

HALO is a complete skin revitalization treatment. Clients see overall improvements in their skin including a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow in addition to significant reduction and removal of discolouration.

What our Clients say

“I’ve been going to SKN for a few months. I keep going back because Amanda is amazing! She is so knowledgeable, very personable, and I can tell she really cares about her clients. I’ve shopped around Vancouver for a great spa for the last few years, so I’m really happy I finally found one I love.”

– Melissa G.

“Was in over the weekend for BBL, neck Skin Tyte and cosmetic acupuncture. I was made to feel welcome right away; everyone was friendly, professional and had a great sense of humour. I was at first skeptical of the effectiveness, but I’ve noticed a big difference with my neck in a day. Many have also commented that I look rested and am glowing. If the results keep up, I’ll definitely be back.”

– Diane C.

“Had a treatment to remove some sun damage to my face, and some hair removal on my back. I’ve had treatments at some other places in town, and none compared to the treatmentI received at SKN from Michelle. Very professional, very calming. An awesome experience for sure. I’ll definitely be back”

– Corey R.
