Halo laser is a resurfacing treatment that achieves excellent results with little recovery time. Unlike a full resurfacing treatment that removes the entire treatment area, the Halo laser from halo laser mn removes small areas of skin, covering a fraction of the total treatment area. This stimulates natural repair mechanisms while leaving surrounding areas intact for rapid healing and minimal convalescence.
Halo uses an Erbium: YAG laser, which makes it very effective in removing tissue with very little thermal conduction, greatly benefiting greater comfort for the patient.
How Does The Procedure Take Place?
An anesthetic cream is applied to the area to be treated. Once the skin is numb, the laser settings are adjusted for treatment. The duration is 15-20 minutes. Once the treatment is completed, a protective ointment to promote healing will be applied.
How To Prepare?
Before undergoing this type of laser treatment in metropolitan skin clinic for example, a medical questionnaire is essential to determine if you are eligible. A review of your medications must be done since some of them could be subject to temporary cessation, and depending on your situation, others prescribed. You must have had sun protection (either avoidance of exposure or systematic sunscreen PFS 30 minimum) for 1 month before and after treatment. No further preparation is necessary.
Is It Painful?
Due to the Halo laser’s very properties and the skin’s numbing with the anesthetic cream, the treatment is very comfortable. We are not talking about pain here, but often more of a slight discomfort at most, which is very well tolerated.
What Are The Risks?
Although laser skin treatment (regardless of laser and skin type) carries certain risks, our cutting-edge Sciton technology minimizes these. Laser therapy can cause side effects, and they are often mild and temporary, resolving quickly within a few hours or days, such as the following:
- feeling of discomfort or burning like a sunburn
- change in color (*browning or whitening)
- may persist for a few months
- Significant side effects are rare:
- permanent discoloration
This treatment is very comfortable. As each patient is different, sometimes these sensations may be felt: slight pinching or a feeling of warmth. A topical anesthetic may increase patient comfort, although it is not always necessary. The building blocks of smooth, youthful skin are elastin and collagen. With laser skin revitalization, light pulses penetrate the skin’s underlayers, treating its aging support structure. The body’s natural healing process then rebuilds the tissue with even texture and fewer wrinkles.
