Who Is a Good Candidate for HALO Laser Skin Resurfacing?
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Poor skin texture
- Scarring (including acne scars)
- Enlarged pores
- Pigmented lesions
HALO can be used on areas other than the face as well. These include the neck, chest, arms, hands, and legs.
Your HALO Laser Resurfacing Treatment
HALO’s use of dual wavelengths is what sets it apart from other laser treatments. While the ablative laser creates microscopic pathways in targeted areas, the nonablative laser creates tiny thermal injuries. These work together to increase your body’s natural healing processes, stimulate collagen and elastin production and rev up cell turnover.
The end result is smoother, brighter and more resilient skin. Sciton’s HALO is so versatile that it can be paired with both nonsurgical and surgical procedures under anesthesia to help maximize your desired results.
HALO Laser Resurfacing Downtime
Swelling and redness are common side effects following your laser skin resurfacing treatment. Your skin will most likely feel warm for the first 24 hours after your session. Cold compresses can be used to reduce the sensation as well as swelling.
Although your individual results may vary, most people experience continued improvements to the texture and pigment correction of their skin over the following weeks and even months. Unlike traditional lasers, most people see the best results in as little as 1 to 2 HALO laser resurfacing treatments.
Results from your HALO laser skin resurfacing treatment should be long-lasting. To help extend the longevity of your results, it’s important to follow Dr. Harrington’s post-treatment instructions, avoid direct sun exposure and wear sunscreen during and after the healing process. We also recommend using ALASTIN skincare products to help aid in the healing and restoration of the skin. Some people may wish to get the occasional touch-up treatment to maximize their results.
