Halo Skin Resurfacing refers to a breakthrough in laser skin treatments. This laser comes from Sciton, the leading company in cosmetic lasers today. The Halo laser treatment is actually a combination treatment that uses 2 different kinds of lasers to get dramatic results with very little downtime.
Ablative lasers are those that create tiny paths into the damaged skin, leaving the healthy skin undamaged. The non-ablative lasers create tiny thermal injuries in the skin, which in turn makes the skin create new collagen and elastin. The Halo laser treatment combines ablative and non-ablative lasers, harnessing the best effects of each, to create excellent results.
The Halo skin resurfacing treatment can resurface about 25 percent of the skin in total. It targets the dermis and the epidermis to minimize large pores, reduce sun damage, treat pigmentation like age spots, and create better skin tone and texture overall.
People who are in their 20s, 30s, 40s, 50s, and beyond can all benefit from Halo skin resurfacing. Whether a person has noticeable skin damage or they are simply trying to be proactive about preventing the signs of aging, this type of skin resurfacing may be the perfect choice. Many people who opt for Halo skin resurfacing have previously considered surgery like facelift, but want to go with a much less invasive option like Halo because it requires no general anesthesia and no scalpels.
Recovery after Halo skin resurfacing is much easier than with some other types of laser skin resurfacing. The downtime is generally only a day or two for most people. Patients may experience some spottiness and redness for the first several days, but around 5 to 7 days after the treatment the results will be evident. The skin will continue to improve for as much as 6 months thanks to the stimulation of new collagen and elastin.
