Halo laser treatments offer a new option in laser skin resurfacing. The Halo laser combines fractional nonablative (1470 nm) and ablative (2940 nm) for quicker healing than with other fractional devices. Patients will notice improvements in skin color (reds and browns) as well as skin texture and fine lines.
Skin will appear more taut with smaller pore sizes.
Treatments are done in the northside office. Patients will arrive an hour prior to treatment for numbing cream. The device combines pulses with both wavelengths at once for a quicker treatment time. During treatment the skin will feel warm and ice packs are applied immediately afterward. Patients may drive themselves home. Recovery is quick with most patients able to resume activities and apply make-up within 2 to 5 days. Sun avoidance is important the first several weeks afterwards as well as before.
The Halo device utilizes its own proprietary dynamic thermal optimization technology (DTO) to measure skin temperature during treatment. This helps to ensure a more accurate treatment and a higher level of safety. Halo provides the most up to date fractional laser technology.
Some results will be visible within a week while others such a wrinkle reduction and skin tightening more like months. Patients will appreciate smoother skin with a glow like quality. Physician Assistant Sheryl New offers consultations to see if you are a candidate for this cutting-edge device.
