What is Halo Laser?
The Halo laser treatment uses two wavelengths to target both the top layer and deeper tissues of your skin. By precisely combining these wavelengths, it can repair visible signs related to aging, sun damage, discoloration, enlarged pores, and uneven skin tone. Additionally, it stimulates the deep heat required for collagen growth without lengthy downtimes associated with traditional lasers.
How Does Halo Laser Work?
The Sciton Halo Laser harnesses the power of a dual-wavelength laser to gently heat the skin, which in turn stimulates cellular regeneration and the production of collagen and elastin. These building blocks of the skin help improve the appearance of cosmetic imperfections while rejuvenating and restoring skin health. Visible results include a more clear and healthy complexion over time.
Benefits of Halo Laser
You can transform your skin in just one treatment with the Halo laser! Fine lines, wrinkles, and acne scars will be minimized, and you will have tighter skin and a more even complexion. There will be an improvement in skin texture and a reduction in discoloration and pore size, and a youthful glow. This minimally invasive treatment requires only a topical anesthetic and allows you to return to your normal routine within 24 hours.
Risks and Side Effects of a Halo Laser Treatment
Sciton’s Halo Laser is minimally invasive and safe. Patients should expect to experience some redness, mild swelling, and tightness after the treatment. Also, there is a rare risk of infection if the treated area is not kept clean following the procedure. Additionally, patients may experience pigmentation changes, although these are typically temporary.
Before, During, and After a Halo Laser Treatment
What to Expect Before a Halo Laser Treatment
Before treatment, our experienced practitioners will recommend a customized skin care regimen to enhance your overall results. Our skilled and professional practitioners in Neenah and Plover will create a tailored plan that meets your unique needs and helps you achieve your desired outcome.
What to Expect During a Halo Laser Treatment
A topical anesthetic will be applied to minimize discomfort. Protective eyewear follows an hour later, after which the laser device, which releases both non-ablative and ablative laser energy in quick bursts, is gently rolled over the areas to be treated. The prickling sensation you may feel is normal and manageable, while the built-in cooling system blows cool air onto your face to reduce any swelling. Once the treatment is complete, a moisturizer will be applied to your skin, leaving you with younger-looking skin that glows.
What to Expect After a Halo Laser Treatment
After treatment, you may experience skin redness for a few days, which could be longer if the treatment is intense. Dead skin cells may move to the surface leading to small dark dots. Your skin may peel slightly and feel rough like sandpaper for three days. You may also experience swelling in certain areas, like the upper cheeks and below the eyes. Within two weeks, redness and dark spots should disappear.
