Laser Skin Resurfacing With Halo™

It is never too late to revive your skin’s youthful, fresh glow thanks to laser skin resurfacing with Halo™. Halo™ is the first-ever hybrid fractional laser combining ablative and non-ablative laser wavelengths to address mild skin issues on the skin’s surface and more severe issues under the surface. This combined laser treatment provides comprehensive, dramatic results with downtime that can be adjustable based on your unique needs.

Personalized Results With Halo™ Laser Skin Resurfacing

The Halo™ laser is extremely tunable, meaning that its strength and other settings can be adjusted to achieve your desired effect. Whether your skin needs treatment to reduce sun spots, fine lines, wrinkles, vascularity, or pigmentation, Halo™ can help correct the damage by precisely targeting the appropriate skin depth to restore a smooth, healthy glow.

As a patient of Schaffer Plastic Surgery, you will meet with Dr. Christopher Schaffer for an extensive consultation where your concerns will be noted and questions answered. Depending on the skin concerns being treated and your cosmetic goals, you may need a single treatment or a series of treatments. Dr. Schaffer also may recommend Halo™ laser skin resurfacing in combination with other skin treatments.

Halo™ laser skin resurfacing is ideal for treating:

  • Sun damage – sun spots, hyperpigmentation, uneven skin tone and texture
  • Visible signs of aging – age spots, uneven skin tone, creases and deeper wrinkles on the face

What to Expect From Halo™ Treatments

Depending on how the Halo™ laser is used, it can provide results that range from subtle to dramatic. In one or more treatments, it can:

  • Soften and smooth skin texture
  • Tighten skin laxity and tone
  • Reverse sun damage
  • Reduce deep hyperpigmentation
  • Shrink large pores
  • Erase dark spots
  • Smooth fine lines and wrinkles
  • Improve skin reflectivity and glow

With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology in the tip of the hand piece, most patients experience very little discomfort. Patients typically describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but generally report that they are comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels. Initial results will appear between two and five days after your Halo™ treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time.

Post-Treatment Care

Downtime after Halo™ treatments is adjustable based on the strength settings of the laser. For deeper resurfacing, you should keep your skin protected for 24 hours and then should be able to go about your normal activities. Your skin will likely begin to peel, but you can wear makeup if you desire. As your skin’s natural wound-healing response activates, you will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines, reduced pore size and renewed skin reflectivity and glow.
