The Best of Both Worlds with Halo™ Laser Treatment
Facial skin therapy for discoloration and wrinkles used to mean choosing between either several sessions with no downtime or one session with weeks of recovery. Today, Halo™ hybrid fractional laser’s technology uses both non-ablative and ablative wavelengths simultaneously to optimize results with fewer appointments and reduce downtime after treatment.
By using two wavelengths, Halo™ provides customized treatments for imperfections on the skin's surface, which heal quickly, and the deeper layers, which remodel more slowly over time for firmer skin and less sagging.
What are the benefits of Halo™?
The Halo™ treatment’s dual laser technology makes it a good choice for a wide range of skin issues. The benefits of Halo™ include:
- Less painful treatments than traditional fractional resurfacing
- Results in just 1-2 sessions
- Faster healing time
What skin issues can Halo™ improve?
Women of any age who want to improve the tone and texture of their skin may be good candidates for this treatment. Halo™ can achieve dramatic results in reducing the appearance of:
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone and texture
- Enlarged pores
- Visible signs of aging
- Fine lines
Halo™ is completely versatile and adjustable to treat a broad spectrum of cosmetic concerns in one session. The customizable laser hybrid laser wavelengths make Halo™ safe for a variety of skin types, including many darker skin tones. However, a personal consultation is the best way to determine if Halo™ is right for your skin and goals.
How long is the downtime?
Your downtime will depend on the depth of your treatment and the areas treated. Most treatments will require you to avoid make-up or any potentially irritating creams or serums for at least 24 hours. Swelling, redness and a feeling that the skin is hot, like a sunburn, are common during the first few days.
More in-depth treatments have dramatic results that take a little more time to heal. We will give you a customized set of recovery instructions based on your treatment. Avoiding any sun exposure is critical during the healing process.
When will I see results?
Many patients see results within two to five days of treatment when the old layers of skin begin to peel and the new, revitalized skin is revealed. Gradual improvement will continue for several weeks, especially for those dealing with pigmentation issues. Most patients achieve optimal results with a series of up to three treatment sessions. Using a high SPF sunscreen every day is important if you want to see continued improvement and maintain your results.
