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.
About the Halo Laser
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.
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.
Halo Laser Treatments
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.
Is There Any Downtime with Halo Laser Treatments?
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.
