Reduce the Signs of Aging with Little Downtime

May 30, 2018
Regardless of the quality of treatment, it is important for many patients to seek out skin rejuvenation options that require little to no downtime. Treatments that result in painful, uncomfortable, or unsightly recovery processes often scare people away at first mention – and for good reason. While it is essential that all skin enhancement procedures (no matter their scope or cost) show beautiful and lasting results, most of us don’t want to deal with the frustrations and potential damage caused by invasive options. This is particularly important for those of us looking to undo skin damage and signs of aging, as this means skin is already in a compromised state. If not careful, further aggravation can result in permanent damage or, at the very least, painful setbacks that can worsen imperfections and create further issues down the road.

Introducing the Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser

The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser is a unique laser treatment, as it harnesses the benefits of both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths that can be adjusted to suit specific skin needs. Because of the functionality of the Halo device, this option is ideal for treating an array of skin conditions, including discoloration, sun damage, premature signs of aging, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores and pore texture, fine lines, wrinkles, and scarring (commonly caused by acne).

How Do Fractional Lasers Rejuvenate the Skin?

Through a process of delivering laser energy to desired depths in the skin, fractional lasering invigorates the body’s natural healing responses. This happens in several ways, but most notably by promoting the growth of key proteins responsible for maintaining healthy skin function, elasticity, and appearance. By increasing the production of these proteins, the skin will begin to restore its youthful appearance and regain much of its vitality and clarity.

What to Expect Prior to Your Halo Treatment

It is important to know what to expect prior to any skin treatment, and Halo is no exception. While this procedure is non-invasive, and much more easily performed than many other laser treatments, there is minimal downtime required following its application. During the procedure, most patients report a mild stinging sensation. However, this sensation can be further lessened by the application of a topical anesthetic. Once the treatment is completed, it is recommended that you keep your skin protected for the first 24 hours, according to your clinician’s instructions. After only two to five days, most patients begin seeing results, though these results do continue to improve over time; especially when maintained by multiple laser treatments. There is no reason why anyone should feel uncomfortable in their own skin. The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser can restore your appearance and your confidence while doing away with unsightly signs of skin damage and aging, with less than downtime than ever before. Reversing the signs of aging begins with a conversation with a skin care expert. Have yours with an experienced, board-certified dermatologist who is sensitive to your needs and goals.
