Laser procedures are wonderful minimally-invasive procedures for patients who are looking to rejuvenate their skin with minimal downtime and recovery. Located in Carmel and Greenwood, Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, led by double board-certified facial plastic surgeon Mark M. Hamilton, M.D., F.A.C.S., offers HALO™ hybrid fractional laser treatments with the Sciton® Joule for men and women who live in and around Indianapolis, Indiana.
What is the HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment?
HALO™ is the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, meaning it applies both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same treatment area to maximize results while reducing downtime. This treatment gives patients the benefits of ablative laser resurfacing, with the easy recovery of non-ablative laser treatment. Perfect for treating fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, sun damage, and enlarged pores, the HALO™ laser treatment gives you radiant, glowing, resurfaced skin but allows you the freedom to be back in makeup within 24 hours of treatment. At Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, we use the Sciton® Joule platform for our HALO™ hybrid fractional laser treatments.
How Much Does HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment Cost?
Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery seeks to make facial surgery procedures available and affordable for everyone. To accomplish this, we accept cash, major credit cards and personal checks for laser resurfacing.
What are the Benefits of HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment?
There are many benefits to getting a HALO™ hybrid fractional laser treatment at Hamilton Facial Plastic Surgery, including improving the appearance of:
- Fine lines
- Acne scarring
- Sun damage
- Enlarged pores
- Uneven skin texture
What Can I Expect During my HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment?
Before your treatment begins, a topical anesthetic will be applied to your treatment area to minimize any discomfort you may feel throughout your procedure. Once numb, the HALO™ handpiece will gently move across the skin emitting quick bursts of laser energy. The ablative and non-ablative wavelengths work together to perforate the skin tissue and trigger the body’s natural healing process, therefore boosting the body’s production of collagen to create a more youthful, healthy appearance. Your HALO™ treatment should only take about 45 minutes to complete.
What Can I Expect After my HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment?
Because this treatment is minimally-invasive, there is minimal downtime and recovery required. Most patients report going immediately back to their normal daily activities following their treatment. You may experience some mild redness and swelling, however, this typically fades on its own after one to two days. While you may start to notice some small changes in your skin over the next few days following your initial treatment, we recommend scheduling multiple treatments spaced one month apart for optimal results.
Am I a Good Candidate for HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment?
If you’re looking for an easy and minimally invasive solution to treat your signs of aging, and uneven skin tone and texture, HALO™ hybrid fractional laser treatments may be right for you. While this treatment is suitable for most skin types, it’s best to talk to Dr. Hamilton about your skin concerns during your one-on-one consultation.
