How to Safely Get Rid of Hyperpigmentation

Many men and women experience at least some type of hyperpigmentation in their lifetime. The condition is usually associated with prolonged exposure to harmful UV-rays but can also be a result of acne scars, inflammation, or other skin injuries. Hyperpigmentation can take many forms including freckles, sun spots, age spots, and melasma.

These pigmentation problems can leave us feeling self-conscious about ourselves to the point of affecting our day-to-day activities. Fortunately, there’s a safe and effective solution for many of your pigment-related concerns. It’s called the Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser, and it’s available at Capital Laser & Skin Care.

Halo™ is the first laser to combine both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths into a single treatment session. Patients can achieve maximum results with less downtime and fewer treatments. Halo™ laser treatments are FDA-approved to treat a variety of aesthetic concerns throughout the face and body. Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, chest, and hands.

Halo Laser for Hyperpigmentation

*Individuals results may vary.

Minimally-invasive Halo™ treatments are done in-office in less than 30-minutes. Patients should take into account additional time for the application of a topical anesthetic used to minimize discomfort. Ideally, patients will schedule 1-2 hours from start to finish.

During treatment, your board-certified dermatologist at Capital Laser and Skin Care will use a specialized handpiece to deliver ablative energy at precise depths to resurface the topmost layers of skin and stimulate epidermal renewal. Non-ablative wavelengths are used to trigger much-needed collagen and peptide production at a deeper level. When combined, the two technologies work synergistically to produce amazing long-term results.

Halo™ has very little downtime when compared to traditional laser treatments that provide similar results. Mineral-based makeup can be applied just 24-hours post-treatment. Aside from minor swelling, redness, and flaking side effects are minimal. Patients can expect to see initial results within 5-7 days depending on the intensity of their treatment. Continued improvement will gradually occur as collagen levels are boosted.

Each Halo™ laser treatment is highly-customized to your individual needs. The procedure is able to address a wide range of cosmetic concerns including fine lines and wrinkles while improving overall texture, tone and discoloration. Patients are able to reverse visible signs of aging and sun damage with a single in-office visit.
