HaloTM Laser Skin Resurfacing Austin
Conveniently located to serve Westlake Hills, Austin and the surrounding areas
Halo laser skin resurfacing is a non-invasive state-of-the-art procedure for achieving beautiful skin. You will see dramatic changes with minimal downtime. With Halo laser skin resurfacing, patients will experience correction of wrinkles, sunspots, and dull or uneven skin tone.
How Does Halo Laser Skin Resurfacing Work?
The Halo laser utilizes the dual hybrid technology of non-ablative and ablative laser energy for treatment of skin problems.
This dual-wavelength laser, delivered to the same treatment zone, treats the upper and inner layers of the skin at the same time. The ablative laser works on the top layer of the skin. The non-ablative laser penetrates into the deep layers of the skin to stimulate collagen and elastin protein production.
Benefits of Halo Laser Skin Resurfacing
Halo laser skin resurfacing is suitable for all ages and for all skin tones. Along with wrinkles and fine lines, Halo laser skin resurfacing corrects problems such as uneven skin tone, enlarged pores, sun damage, and scarring. The Halo laser treatment is non-invasive and completely safe.
The Treatment Process
First, a consultation is scheduled so that our skin expert can better understand your skin problems and your expectations from the treatment. During this consultation, your medical history will be discussed, including any allergies and current conditions.
On the day of the Halo laser skin resurfacing treatment, a numbing cream is applied on the face. It will take around 30 minutes for the numbing cream to take effect. Your eyes are covered with shields to protect them from the effects of the laser.
The Halo handpiece first measures the surface area of individual sections of your face. Multiple passes are then performed to treat each section.
The intensity of the Halo laser can be adjusted depending on how aggressive the treatment will be. A more intensive treatment will result in a little more swelling and more associated downtime. A low-intensity treatment will require more sessions but negligible downtime.
The laser treatment does not take much time. However, on the whole, you will have to spend about two hours at the clinic. The treatment is not painful like most lasers; you will feel heat sensations rather than pain, and your face will feel warm once the treatment is complete.
After the Treatment
Halo laser skin resurfacing does not require much downtime. The skin becomes temporarily red, and there may be some swelling, which will subside within 2-3 days. You should avoid sun exposure as much as possible during the healing process. You should not wear makeup for 24 hours after the procedure.
You will need a couple of days of downtime and recovery for the redness and itching to subside. You can use a gentle cleanser to clean your skin. Apply moisturizer on the treated area regularly. Application of sunscreen will be a must for a couple of months.
The Results of Halo Laser Skin Resurfacing
You will start noticing the results after 2-3 days have passed. After a couple of weeks, the skin appears visibly softer and smoother. A single Halo treatment produces a better overall result than 3-4 treatment sessions with a conventional chemical peel or fractional laser.
