No matter how careful we are about taking care of our skin, aging and environmental damage eventually take their toll. Fine lines, roughness, and discoloration dull our complexion’s dazzle and keep us from feeling our best in our skin. But there’s hope! You can give your face and body a fresh start with HALO laser skin resurfacing, available at our Ankeny clinic and spa near Des Moines, IA.

FDA-approved HALO is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser. It uses two distinct laser wavelengths to give you the dramatic results of traditional laser resurfacing, minus the discomfort and downtime.

How Does HALO Work?

HALO resurfaces the skin using two different laser wavelengths:

  • Ablative: This wavelength removes the outermost layer of your skin and encourages regenerative growth. These lasers deliver dramatic results, but they traditionally involve more downtime.
  • Non-ablative: This gentler wavelength works deeper in the skin, heating the underlying tissues to stimulate new collagen production.

Combining these wavelengths minimizes your recovery time while maximizing your rejuvenating results.

What Does HALO Treat?

HALO treats many different signs of aging on the face and body, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Discoloration
  • Enlarged pores
  • Uneven tone and texture

Depending on your needs, you may be a better candidate for other skin rejuvenation services, including Forever Young™ BBL or RF microneedling. Your experienced provider will recommend the best treatment plan for your unique goals during your in-depth skin consultation.

What Is It Like To Have a HALO Treatment Done?

Most people describe HALO treatments as more comfortable than other laser skin resurfacing treatments. We’ll start by applying a topical anesthetic to make sure you stay comfortable from start to finish. Your provider will then guide the handpiece over your treated area to deliver even resurfacing. While HALO’s integrated cooling system will cool your skin, it’s normal to feel some warmth that lasts for about an hour following your treatment.

What Is Recovery Like After a HALO Treatment?

You can expect to have some redness and sensitivity in your skin for a couple of days, followed by a bronzed appearance and some flaking. Most people see initial results within a week, and their glow continues to improve as collagen production increases over the next few weeks and even months.

How Many HALO Treatments Will I Need?

Many people are happy with their results after just 1 or 2 sessions, but you may need more depending on your concerns and goals. HALO is customizable, meaning you can choose between a short series of aggressive treatments or a longer series of gentler, quicker recovery sessions. You and your provider will work together to create your own customized treatment plan.

How Much Does HALO Laser Skin Resurfacing Cost?

The price of HALO treatments at our Des Moines-area clinic and spa varies from person to person, depending on the size of your treatment area and the number of sessions needed. We’ll provide you with a personalized estimate at your consultation so you know what to expect in terms of pricing.

Expert consultation and explanation of procedure, what to expect afterwards, the risks and benefits. Staff was very friendly, helpful and made sure that I was completely informed and satisfied. Calmed my fears and gave reassurance. Did a follow up with me and made me feel beautiful and confident.

Love this place and love Aubrey. Highly recommend!

I’ve been going to Revive for several years. I’ve always had a great experience with everyone from the front desk staff to the dermatologists to the estheticians. The VIP program is amazing! Highly recommended!

Revive is the best dermatology clinic I have ever been to! After suffering from trial and error at the last clinic I went to, I was very hesitant to go to Revive. Right away, everyone was so caring and accommodating. I have never received such amazing service from any clinic I have been to, but Revive is leaps and bounds greater than your ordinary dermatology clinic. I received the hydra-facial from Maria, and I did not want to leave! The experience was amazing and the service was outstanding. The facial itself was incredibly relaxing and Maria walked me through the steps in the facial process since I had never received one before. Carissa at the front was so friendly and welcoming as well. I was seen right away and felt like everyone truly cared about my overall experience at the clinic. I would recommend Revive to anyone who is looking for dermatology services! I will be back!

I have had the BEST experience getting Botox at Revive with Aubrey. She is great at explaining the process and expected outcomes of the service. She’s very knowledgeable and I always appreciate her recommendations! All of the staff is welcoming and I always look forward to my appointments there!

I was really nervous getting any kind of procedure done that involves my face. The whole staff was very nice and made my experience awesome!!!!? I will be using this spa as my go to for all my dermatologic needs. A special thanks to Stefanie Gatica for making me feel better about myself!!!!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Thank you Tom! You are the best and we love having you come in!

I called several dermatology clinics and was unable to see anyone soon. Revive was able to do a Tele health visit the same day with me! Tawnya was kind and knowledgeable. I would recommend this clinic and return if needed!

Business Owner replied on Oct 11, 2022:

Thank you Elizabeth! Tawnya is fantastic and we are glad you found us!

Love this place for many aesthetic services & dermatology. The customer service is amazing! Stef always treats me like family and does a great job! Stef has caught skin cancer early and I’m forever grateful. Jayden, the manager, is so friendly and has helped me get the best prices with Allē. Jayden even went above and beyond to help out a friend with saving money also! 5 stars!
