Halo Laser Pre + Post Care Instructions

Before your procedure

  • AVOID tanning; natural, spray tan, and all other self-tanners.
  • 1 WEEK BEFORE treatment, discontinue all topical products containing retinol, Retin-A, or Tretinoin.
  • AVOID bleaching, waxing, tweezing, or using depilatory creams in the treatment area.
  • Use sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection with SPF 30 or higher.
  • If you have a history of Herpes or cold sores, a course of anti-viral medication before and after treatment is required. Please call our office for a prescription.

Day of Your Treatment

  • Please come to the office without makeup, creams, gels, or lotions on treatment areas.

What to expect

  • DAY 1-2: The treated area will be swollen, red, and feel very warm.
  • DAY 2-7: Your skin will develop a bronzed tint, and small dark spots will appear. This is the pigment rising to the surface. And it will slough off.

After Your Treatment

  • Use plain, lukewarm water and a gentle cleanser to wash your skin 2x daily. Use your hands and fingertips to cleanse.
  • DO NOT rub, scrub, or use an exfoliant or skincare brush such as a Clarisonic on the treated area.
  • Moisturizer should be applied generously with clean hands over the treated area and reapplied whenever your skin feels dry.
  • Use sunscreen with UVA/UVB protection with SPF 30 or higher.
  • Use a soft cloth and soft towels to avoid any scrubbing
  • Typically, you can apply makeup once the peeling process is complete
  • Wear a wide-brimmed hat or protective clothing for 2 months post-treatment to prevent blistering, scarring, hyperpigmentation and hypopigmentation
  • When showering, avoid getting shampoo directly on the treated area
  • Avoid strenuous exercise and sweating until after skin has healed
