What you need to know about HALO Laser Resurfacing at Beautiful Orlando Medspa
1. HALO IS THE FIRST AND ONLY HYBRID FRACTIONAL LASER.
Unlike other treatments, Halo is uniquely designed to deliver both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same treatment zone. This dual-wavelength feature means that the laser resurfaces both your epidermis (the topmost layer of skin) and the dermis (the thick layer of living tissue directly under the epidermis) at the same time.
HOW DOES HALO WORK?
2. HALO DOESN’T JUST TREAT FINE LINES AND WRINKLES.
Although the Halo laser is one of the most effective fine line and wrinkle reducers, it isn’t just a treatment for aging skin. It also corrects issues such as:
Uneven skin tone
Results will vary depending on the number of treatments you get and the severity of your skin problems. However, most patients report a significant improvement in their complexion after just one Halo treatment.
3. HALO PROVIDES MORE DRAMATIC RESULTS.
Thanks to Halo’s unique dual-wavelength technology, the treatment can resurface about 25 to 30 percent of the skin. Many other more gentle lasers only resurface approximately 5 percent. This means the results of your treatments will be much more noticeable and dramatic than less powerful laser treatments.
4. HALO WORKS ON ALL SKIN TYPES.
Some laser treatments are only effective for men and women with lighter pigment skin complexions. This is because the laser targets visible skin imperfections, some of which are more easily overlooked with darker skin tones. Halo is different. By using a motion-tracking technology to measure your face beforehand, the laser can scan and target imperfections deep within the epidermis — even imperfections that would not be visible to the naked eye. Because of this, it is effective for all ages, all skin types, and all complexions.
5. YOU’LL SEE RESULTS IN AS LITTLE AS 5 DAYS.
Your skin undergoes a bronzing stage every several days. During this stage, your skin will peel to reveal new, revitalized layers beneath. If you receive a Halo treatment, these layers will contain improved skin tone and texture, as well as a decreased appearance of scars and dark spots. The first signs of improvement will be noticeable 5-7 days after your treatment.
During the next few weeks, you’ll continue to see subtle improvement in pigmentation, texture, and tone. These results will continue as your skin regenerates through the following months. Overall, if you protect your skin from UV rays, your results can last for years to come.
6. HALO TAKES ABOUT ONE HOUR PER SESSION.
Lasers can be painful. To reduce the pain and improve the experience, one of our staff will apply a topical anesthetic 60 minutes before the procedure. Once the numbing medication has kicked in, your face will be measured with motion-tracking technology to ensure an even skin treatment. The laser will then be applied.
7. EXPECT MINOR DISCOMFORT FOLLOWING THE PROCEDURE.
Many individuals report a burning sensation immediately following their treatment, similar to the feeling of a sunburn. This typically passes after several hours. Swelling and redness are common and can last 2-3 days.
There are other post-care considerations to keep in mind as well. You need to remain make-up free for at least 24 hours following your Halo treatment. You should also stay out of the sun as much as possible throughout your entire healing process.
8. HALO REQUIRES FEWER TREATMENTS FOR BETTER RESULTS.
Halo is more expensive than a chemical peel or traditional fractional laser. On average, Halo costs about $1,200. Other peels and lasers are typically in the $100-$500 range per treatment.
That said, it can take a chemical peel or fractional laser 8-12 treatments to achieve the results of a single Halo procedure. Halo treatments are also known to provide better, lasting results in the long run. Because of this, for many patients, Halo is actually the more affordable option.
