There are a lot of different skin conditions that can mar your appearance. Some of these things are temporary and only cause slight embarrassment for a short period of time. For example, individuals who have acne outbreaks occasionally have to deal with some pimples, inflammation, and then a short healing time. Unfortunately, there are other skin conditions that last a lot longer and produce long-term side effects that can seriously affect your appearance. If you are dealing with these longer-term skin conditions they are causing you to feel bad about the way you look, we invite you to learn about skin resurfacing via Halo laser. Call us today to learn more!
The very first thing that you are likely wondering is how the Halo laser can help you. This treatment is extremely versatile. It can help individuals who are dealing with a wide variety of skin issues. Do you have fine lines on your face? Do you have an uneven skin tone? Do you have acne scarring? If you answered yes to any of these questions, you have likely looked at other skin resurfacing treatments in the past. However, you may have been disappointed in ones that were purchased over the counter, and you may have been a little bit nervous to undergo a surgical procedure. If you want something that works and does not require surgery, the Halo laser for skin resurfacing can help you.
This is a skin resurfacing treatment that uses two different types of lasers. It uses a non-ablative and an ablative laser in order to improve the condition of your skin. The ablative laser is going to target very small pathways in your skin while avoiding damaging the skin around it. Then the non-ablative laser is going to deliver controlled injury to the skin in order to help it produce more collagen, elastin, and other beneficial substances. This means that the epidermis and the dermis are treated during the laser treatment.
What will you need to do after treatment? It is good for our clients to understand that they will need some downtime in the days that followed the Halo laser treatment. However, it will only be a couple of days before you are healed and then you start seeing some of the results that have come from using this treatment. When you come in for your initial consultation, we will help you to get a good idea of the kind of results you can expect as well as how long it will take you to recover afterward.
We will tell you the types of moisturizers and skin products that you can use to get the best results. You will likely be happy to note that you can wear makeup about a day or so after the treatment in order to cover up any peeling or redness you may have. While it will take several days to recover, this does not mean that you have to lay down in bed for several days. It simply means that you are going to see some peeling and redness on your face.
