5 Things You Wanted to Know about the Halo Laser but Didn’t Ask - Dr. Beverly Fischer, MD - Baltimore, Maryland

It would have been great if we all received the blessings of flawless skin. And, as irony would have it, all those facial imperfections can get worse as time goes by – sun damage, enlarged pores, spots, and other, equally unpleasant issues accentuate as we age. Even those with a strict skincare routine know that, sometimes, a breakout can just happen.

But you’re in luck! The Halo Laser therapy can help you make your skin look picture-perfect. It’s a unique approach that combines ablative and non-ablative lasers to improve various types of skin problems, and it’s one of the most effective solutions out there.

Do you want to learn more about it? Here are a few things you should know:

Custom Treatment

The ablative and non-ablative lasers pulse simultaneously. The non-ablative ones heat the top layer of the skin without removing it while the ablative lasers handle the outer layers of the skin.

This hybrid method efficiently reaches the deeper collagen layers without damaging the skin. That way, you can get a treatment plan specifically tailored to your needs and aesthetic goals. The number of issues you want to correct will also determine how many sessions you’ll need to attend.

It’s Not Just for Aging Skin

The Halo laser isn’t just a treatment option for those wanting to look younger. People with discoloration or only finer wrinkles can also opt for this solution.

The procedure can improve sun-damaged skin, light scarring, and enlarged pores, so it’s not exclusive to a specific age group.

What Does a Session Look Like?

You’ll have to visit the cosmetic surgeon's office for a couple of sessions, depending on the treatment plan. You’ll receive an anesthetic up to an hour before the procedure. After that, the Halo device is rolled over each portion of the skin until the end of the session. It’s not hurtful, but it can feel like a small prickling sensation.

Once a particular session is over, you’ll most likely have to wait a few days until you can continue.

What Else Should I Expect?

The Halo laser treatment is a great option even for those handling a busy schedule. Through a customized treatment plan, you can single out the areas of the face that need treatment.

After a session, it’s advised not to wear makeup or put on any creams for at least 24 hours. You should also avoid sunlight. The skin might feel a bit warm, but that’s entirely normal, and you can hold a cold compress to relieve this sensation if it’s bothering you.

As for the results, you can see some improvements as soon as two days after the treatment. Your skin will peel off the old and damaged layers, revealing the healthier ones beneath. The perks will become more and more visible with each session.
