Cosmetic laser treatments are a versatile and established tool in treating skin concerns with over forty years of proven benefits. However, lasers have revolutionized the quest for younger-looking skin in the last decade, with technology like the Halo laser at the forefront of non-surgical, anti-aging treatments.
At Adoro Medical Spa in Severna Park, MD, we offer the latest cosmetic trends and services, so our patients receive the best, most effective treatments for their skin concerns. Our convenient offices serve Annapolis, Pasadena, Millersville, Arnold, and the eastern shore of Maryland with comprehensive, detail-oriented care.
The Halo laser has changed cosmetic anti-aging treatments, offering patients faster results with less downtime.
How Do Cosmetic Laser Treatments Work?
Cosmetic laser treatments use light and heat energy to create controlled damage to the skin, stimulating the body’s natural healing response to produce fresh, new skin. There are many different types of lasers, but fractional lasers are among the most popular.
A fractional laser resurfaces the skin by creating columns of thermal damage through the skin’s layers. The skin heals and regenerates more quickly using columns while restoring and revitalizing the complexion.
The columns of a fractional laser target both the outer layers of skin and the skin’s deeper layers to reduce pigment and restore skin tone at the surface while stimulating collagen production in the skin’s deeper layers.
The skin around the thermal columns remains untreated, allowing the skin to heal faster and reducing downtime.
Traditionally, fractional lasers are either ablative or non-ablative. Ablative lasers target significantly damaged or aging skin and are considered more invasive. Non-ablative lasers target minor skin concerns affecting only the topmost layers of skin.
How Is the Halo Laser Different?
The Halo laser is the world’s very first hybrid fractional laser. Halo laser treatments are unique because they provide two kinds of laser wavelengths — ablative and non-ablative — to the same area. The dual-wavelength treatments resurface all of the layers of the skin at once.
In the past, patients seeking skin rejuvenation from cosmetic laser treatments had to choose between ablative and non-ablative treatments. Now, the Halo laser treatments offer both. Patients achieve the significant results of an ablative laser but the limited downtime of non-ablative laser treatment. It’s the best of both worlds.
What Are the Benefits of Choosing Halo Laser Treatments?
The unique technology of the Halo laser allows for effective treatments of more skin concerns than ever before. In addition, patients who choose Halo laser treatments see significant benefits.
The Halo Laser Treats More than Aging Skin
Most cosmetic laser treatments focus on restoring youthfulness to aging skin by reducing fine lines and wrinkles. However, the Halo laser can treat issues beyond just the skin concerns that develop with age.
In addition to fine lines and wrinkles, the Halo laser treats discoloration, uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, sun damage, and scarring.
The Halo Laser Is for All Skin
Some lasers can only treat skin concerns on lighter skin, as the lasers seek out melanin for treatment. However, the Halo laser uses motion-tracking technology instead. The Halo laser works on all skin types, complexions, and ages by scanning and targeting imperfections at the skin’s most profound levels.
Halo Laser Provides Fast, Long-Lasting Results.
Your skin sloughs off dead cells every several days to reveal fresh new layers. After a Halo laser treatment, the new layers will show improved skin tone and texture and reduce the appearance of scars or hyperpigmentation.
You’ll begin to see the first signs of improved skin in as little as two to five days after your Halo laser treatment.
Then, your skin will continue to improve over the next few weeks as your collagen levels increase and your skin regenerates. Your Halo laser results can last for years with proper sun protection and care.
Halo Laser Results Are Dramatic
Cosmetic laser treatments work to resurface skin layers. However, resurfacing requires a delicate balance of offering results without extensive downtime. The Halo laser does precisely that.
Gentle lasers resurface about 5% of their treatment areas, while Halo laser’s dual-wavelength technology resurfaces 25-30% of the skin, delivering more dramatic results in fewer treatments.
Halo Laser Treatments Are Customizable for Your Skin Concerns
Halo laser treatments are completely customizable. When you schedule your consultation with Adoro Medical Spa, Dr. Pacheco will create a unique treatment plan for your skin concerns, so you achieve optimal results from your treatments.
Halo lasers can target any area on your skin that you want to rejuvenate, regardless of whether the site shows fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, or acne scars.
Halo Laser Requires Fewer Treatments
Other anti-aging treatments, like a chemical peel or standard fractional laser, require three to four treatments to accomplish the same results as a single Halo laser session. As a result, Halo treatments often become a more affordable option to achieve comprehensive, lasting results that restore youthful skin.
Halo Laser Treatments Minimize Downtime
Past ablative laser treatments required extensive downtime. Patients needed to protect their raw, treated skin for days or even weeks. Now, the dual-wavelength technology of the Halo laser allows most patients to return to work and daily activities the very next day after a mild treatment.
Patients can apply makeup 24 hours after their Halo treatments, so any redness is easily concealed. Halo offers the best results with the fastest recovery period of all laser treatments.
