Who Can We Help with Halo?
There are many people out there experiencing different visible aging signs, such as fine lines and uneven skin tone, but are reluctant to undergo surgical procedures. They’ve constantly wished for alternative ways to get rid of such conditions. Treatments like Halo are less costly and have fewer risks, with sustainable results, and are therefore good choices for hesitant patients.
Introducing Halo Laser by Sciton
Halo is a hybrid fractional laser treatment that combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths into one treatment to reduce downtime while enhancing the results. Typically, this procedure helps patients get the results they want with little to no downtime. It was developed to help patients that are experiencing visible aging signs such as fine lines, sun damage, and uneven skin tone.
How Does Halo Work?
As noted, Halo treatment is a combination of two laser treatments: ablative and non-ablative. The ablative laser targets teeny pathways in the skin without causing damage to the area around it. Meanwhile, the non-ablative laser creates a controlled injury in the skin to trigger the production of elastin and collagen, and this helps to minimize wrinkles on the skin. This hybrid treatment targets the dermis and epidermis to help reduce the appearance of sun damage, brown spots, and enlarged pores. Unlike traditional methods, the Halo treatment only requires a few days of healing time.
What Happens After Halo?
After the treatment, the patient is usually advised to keep the skin protected at least for 24 hours. After that, they are free to engage in their day to day activities with no fears at all. The skin begins to peel after 24 hours and can be covered using makeup. If you receive a facial treatment, you will start noticing changes after two to three days, starting with a light bronzing appearance, then skin peeling. The peeling is necessary to reveal the new skin. Typically, you should expect to see the results after two to five days following the treatment. The results last for many years as long as the patient protects the skin from direct UV rays.
Under the professional leadership of Dr. Jeffrey H. Donaldson, the team at Donaldson Plastic Surgery is dedicated to providing patients with non-surgical skin care procedures that are designed to improve your appearance and give you a youthful look.
