Out with the old and in with the new. Skin cells that is. Many of our patients that come in note that they are unhappy with their overall skin tone and pigmentation. This common complaint is usually followed up with a request for laser rejuvenation.
While there are many laser options available, one of our favorite treatment options for improving skin tone and pigmentation is the revolutionary Halo Laser treatment. With the Halo Pro device, Dr. Dorner is able to give you major results with minimal downtime.
The Halo Pro is great for treating skin tone issues such as sun damage, acne scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and even minimizing pore size. It’s also able to treat problem areas due to pigmentation issues like age spots, sun spots, and melasma. Unlike many laser treatments, the Halo Pro is completely safe for darker skin tones as well.
How Does Halo Laser Treatment Work?
There are two Halo treatments available; Halo and Halo Pro. Both resurface the skin using a controlled micro-injury method. This controlled injury stimulates collagen production and elastin. In turn, your body naturally replaces old, damaged skin cells with new ones.
Those seeking to repair or prevent the first signs of aging might want to consider the Halo Laser System. Using solely non-ablative energy, Dr. Dorner is able to target problem areas without destroying healthy skin cells.
For a more aggressive approach, the Halo Pro Laser is often recommended. The Halo Pro offers two wavelengths that work together simultaneously. In addition to non-ablative energy, ablative energy is used to vaporize tissue completely.
Before your procedure, a topical numbing gel will be applied to maximize comfort. The laser rejuvenation treatment can last anywhere from 30-45 minutes.
What Results Can I Expect?
Halo and Halo Pro require minimal recovery time. After your procedure, you may experience swelling, minor itching, dry skin, and peeling or flaking. On average, side effects will dissipate within one week.
You’ll notice smoother tone, texture, and pigmentation following your Halo treatment. Your skin will continue to improve after the treatment for three to six months. One treatment provides noticeable results, but to really get the best correction possible, it is recommended that patients undergo a series of treatments.
