What is Halo Skin Resurfacing?
Youthful skin is resilient and able to repair itself as it is damaged, but as skin ages, it needs more help staying strong and healthy. So as the skin is exposed to sun, pollution, dirt, and other environmental factors, over-the-counter products may not be enough to keep skin smooth and radiant. HALO nonsurgical treatments with a hybrid fractional laser help patients see a more even skin tone and a smoother skin texture, plus, HALO reduces skin discoloration, fine lines, and pore size for a better overall complexion. Schedule a consultation at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery to learn more about HALO hybrid fractional laser treatments in Jacksonville, FL and decide if HALO is right for your cosmetic goals.
"I am writing this article in praise of my Aesthetician, Chris Weber at PVPS. I recently had a small procedure done and was concerned about post surgery care and maintenance of my lid area of my eye which is very delicate. I have been going to Chris at PVPS for several years now and thoroughly have enjoyed her tips and especially the expert and thorough knowledge she expends through years of her attending the most advanced progressive symposia's and certifications in skincare. My skin always looks marvelous when I follow in her advice on skincare and many family and friends have now made PVPS their skincare meca of choice and Chris as their Aesthetician. No matter if I choose to use the skincare that she recommends after she utilizes on a facial for me or to first "test drive" the skincare products I always return to get those products because quite honestly my skin just looks and feels better! Again, I returned to Chris to follow up and heed her suggestions of what would help firm, moisturize and keep my delicate eye area looking tight and smooth. I have been following this regimen and gotten many compliments. I started out after having several different skincare specialists after moving to Jacksonville but have stayed with Chris simply because I love her amazing deep cleansing facial's and how I look and feel afterward. I expected the best at PVPS but certainly surprised that Chris has elevated my experience far beyond my own expectations, she is superior at her craft! Chris is the total package for indulgence, experience and complete relaxation!"- L.W. / Yelp / Nov 17, 2015
"What a difference! I knew after my first visit with Kim, I was in excellent care. I came to PVPS with a few chronic skin issues besides ageing. After my first visit with Kim I could feel and see a difference. A quick and painless visit with Amy, my issues were completely addressed. I have followed the advice and schedule developed for me and suggested by both providers, and am completely thrilled with my results! My chronic issues are managed and my skin has not looked or felt as healthy as it does in ten years! I will also share, every interaction I have had with PVPS employees has been professional and caring. Becoming a client with these folks has been one of the best things I have done for myself in a long time. Viva la difference!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Mar 02, 2021
"Good afternoon! I wanted to send you all this wonderful feedback we got from a patient survey about her consultation with Dr. Hickman! “I felt extremely comfortable with Dr. Hickman. After 3 other consultations in the past 6 weeks, I left PVPS confident about which surgeon I will be choosing for my “mommy makeover”. I look forward to scheduling soon. Finally! My decision was also made easier by my son’s girlfriend speaking so highly of Dr. Hickman. Girlfriend’s Mother was taken care of by Dr. Hickman when she had breast cancer. At the time, my son’s girlfriend was in middle school. I was struck by what an impression Dr. Hickman made on a little girl (at the time) when her Mom was suffering.” Just a nice reminder that the work you all do does not go unnoticed or unappreciated "- Anonymous / Office Visit / Feb 23, 2021
"I am so grateful for my “team” of facial experts at PVPS,Amelia Island office. They have been helping me “look my best” for my son’s wedding ,which has been postponed from it’s original date May 2020( because of Covid) ,to September 2021. Tiffany has been so terrific and has helped me figure out how to manage (along with Kim)my time schedule and the best way to utilize specials and points. She is always great with advice on all of the products and procedures. Kim is my aesthetician extraordinaire and has given my skin a much more healthy, youthful appearance. She recommended alternating hydra facials and skin pen treatments and the fine lines above my lips and around my eyes are disappearing. I have been amazed at the results that she produces, and thoroughly enjoy the time spent in her chair. Amy has done a wonderful job with the finishing touches. She keeps the parts of my face moving that need to, and the others still. She never overdoes and I always feel like I look refreshed and natural. These ladies have been such a joy to “work” with and are invaluable to me. They truly work as a team , sharing information and ideas about how to be the most helpful to their clients. They will remain my team for maintenance, relaxation and above all friendship. Thanks so much ladies!"- Anonymous / Office Visit / Feb 15, 2021

Who Is a Good Candidate for Halo Skin Resurfacing?
HALO hybrid fractional laser treatments can help with a wide range of skin concerns, including:
- Large pores
- Rough skin texture
- Scar revision
- Signs of aging
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Wrinkles and fine lines
What Is a Halo Treatment Like?
To help patients feel more comfortable during the procedure, a numbing cream or topical anesthetic may be applied to the skin before the treatment begins. Once the skin is cleansed and prepped, the technician will carefully roll the HALO handpiece over the skin for an even application. Depending on the strength of the treatment and the size of the area being treated, a HALO procedure may take 30 – 60 minutes.
What Can I Expect After a Halo Treatment?
Patients may feel some warmth or prickling sensations in the treated areas of skin for 15 – 45 minutes after their treatment, but they should be able to resume their normal activities. The treated skin may begin to peel about one day after the procedure, but this can be covered with makeup. Patients should not pick or disturb the peeling as the skin naturally sloughs off. Most patients see results 2 – 5 days after their treatment that continue to improve over the next few months.
Frequently Asked Questions About Halo
How often should I receive a HALO treatment?
HALO treatments are customized to be more or less aggressive for each patient based on their skin concerns and needs. Patients may need several less aggressive treatments for sensitive skin or they may want a few stronger treatments to see results faster. The technician can help each patient determine their best treatment plan, including how many treatments to get and how often to schedule them.
What is the best way to maintain my results from HALO treatments?
After HALO treatments, patients should take great care to protect their skin by using consistent sun protection, like UV sunscreen. The skin will be sensitive after the treatment so patients should talk to their technician about the best skin care products to soothe and rehydrate their skin. Touch-up treatments are recommended to help patients extend their results and reveal deeper benefits.
