Halo Skin Treatment
Halo skin treatments are a type of hybrid fractional laser treatment that combines two laser wavelengths to target the surface and deeper layers of the skin. The first laser targets the top layer of the skin, while the second penetrates deeper into the dermis. This dual approach allows for more effective and precise treatment of a variety of skin concerns.
Halo treatments are commonly used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and uneven skin tone and texture. The procedure can also stimulate collagen production and reduce the appearance of acne scars.
During the treatment, a topical numbing cream is applied to the skin to minimize any discomfort. The laser is then passed over the skin, delivering controlled bursts of energy to create microscopic injuries. This triggers the body’s natural healing process, which promotes the growth of new, healthy skin cells.
After the treatment, the skin may be red and slightly swollen, but this typically subsides within five days. Patients are advised to avoid sun exposure and wear sunscreen to protect the treated area during the healing process.
Overall, Halo skin treatments can provide significant improvement in skin tone, texture, and overall appearance. However, as with any medical procedure, it’s important to consult with a qualified healthcare provider to determine if Halo treatment is appropriate for your specific skin concerns and needs.
