At Gilpin Facial Plastics, we offer the Halo laser treatment to help address signs of aging for rejuvenated complexion, without the downtime. Our team will work with you to address your individual skin issues and create a treatment plan to help you achieve your unique aesthetic goals. Read on to learn more about the Halo Laser treatment and what it can do for you and your skin!

How Does Halo Laser Work?

The Halo laser is a hybrid of both a non-ablative and an ablative laser. The non-ablative lasers heat up the deeper layers of skin, but doesn’t remove it, while ablative laser do removes small channels from the topmost layer of skin. By combining these two techniques, patients can enjoy the effective results of the ablative laser with the easier recovery period offered by non-ablative lasers. The Halo laser can address a number of skin conditions, including:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Dull skin
  • Sun damage
  • Acne scars
  • Large pores
  • Unevenly toned skin
  • Rough-textured skin

Most individuals require a series of treatments spaced three months apart. After each treatment, you should be able to see some improvement.

The Halo Laser Treatment

The Halo laser treatment is best for those who are seeking quick results and do not want a lot of downtime. It corrects many skin issues and is great for adults of all ages and genders seeking its benefits.

During treatment, a topical anesthetic is used to help ensure your comfort. Then, your face will be measured with motion-tracking technology to ensure that you receive an even treatment. During the procedure, the Halo handpiece is rolled over each targeted section of skin until the treatment is completed. Most people describe a warm pricking sensation, but you should not experience pain.

The Halo laser treatment can also be combined with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures to help further improve results. For example, the Halo treatment can help to further improve the appearance of wrinkles and lines after a facelift procedure for a more youthful complexion. The Halo can be combined with other aesthetic procedures to give you the most effective and comprehensive treatment.  If you choose to combine your Halo laser treatments with other treatments, our team can help guide you through that process for the best possible results.

How Long Does Halo Laser Last?

The results of the Halo laser treatment can last for years to come with proper care. However, you should continue to keep your skin protected from UV rays by wearing sunscreen. Each additional Halo treatment you receive will further improve your results.

Halo Laser Recovery

For the first 24 hours after your Halo laser treatment, you should keep your skin calm and protected. After that, you should be able to go about your normal activities. You will be able to apply makeup the next day. After 2-3 days, you will develop a light bronzed appearance. By day 3-4, your skin will peel, revealing the new skin underneath. Results will continue to improve during the following months. Patients can enjoy their Halo laser results for years to come, however, you should be sure to keep your skin protected at all times to help protect it from the sun’s UV rays. Further Halo laser treatments will only further improve your results.
