Is your skin looking dull and tired? That’s what years of sun exposure and the natural aging process can do. One of the most effective, non-invasive, resurfacing treatments we offer is the HALO Laser treatment. The Halo is a safe and effective way to correct the environmental damage and restore a youthful appearance.
Here’s what it can treat:
It not only improves the skin’s overall tone and texture, but it also goes hard at work to reduce or eliminate sun spots, patches of discoloration and other types of blemishes.
Patients in their 20’s and 30’s are opting for HALO Laser therapy for preventative reasons, however mature adults really see improvement in its ability to reverse the signs of aging. If you’re looking to feel more confident about your appearance, and restore that youthful glow, HALO may be right for you.
HALO laser treatment works by emitting hybrid fractional lasers onto the skin’s surface. A healing response in your skin starts to occur, boosting collagen and elastin.. It’s called a “hybrid” fractional laser because the device contains two different laser wavelengths.
This dual-wavelength laser works on two levels: regenerating skin from deep below the surface (dermis) as well as renewal of layers closer to the surface (epidermis).
You will first consult with one of our certified aestheticians to ensure Halo is the right treatment for you. Proceeding with treatment, you will receive our instructions for prepping the skin before treatment. The treatment begins with topical numbing cream that is applied to your skin, with a numbing time of about one hour. The numbing allows you to avoid any discomfort, although it is normal to feel heat or a pinching sensation as the lasers do their job. The handheld device is rolled gently across the treatment area. Depending on the size of the area we’re treating, it may take at least 30 minutes or longer to complete the session. Depending on the condition of your skin, your aesthetician will determine the number of treatments that are need to achieve your desired result.
While you may resume all normal activities immediately post-treatment, you may feel the need to take a day off from work and social activities to give your skin the best possible outcome from the treatment. Immediately after treatment, your skin may look like it is sunburned. Within 24 hours it will start to peel. Peeling sloughs off the skin cells that are dead or damaged, revealing healthy skin. Initial results will be visible within 2-5 days, once swelling has subsided and your skin begins to heal. Over time, the results will continue to improve. Don’t forget to protect your investment. Halo is an effective laser treatment that provides results that can be long-lasting, especially if you take the proper steps to protect it from sun damage, and maintain an effective skin care routine.
