We all hear about how much damage the sun can do to our skin, but many people do not realize the full extent of this. Sun damage can age the skin and make us look tired. The Halo™ laser can revitalize and rejuvenate the skin, eliminating years of sun damage along with other forms of skin imperfections.
How Does the Sun Affect the Skin?
The ultraviolet rays of the sun can cause the skin to lose elasticity. This makes it more prone to fine lines and wrinkles. Sun spots and changes in pigmentation are caused by UV rays as well. Sun exposure can also dry out the skin. Many scientific studies estimate that the vast majority of the aging of the face is actually caused by the sun.
How Can the Halo™ Laser Help?
The Halo™ laser is a hybrid. It delivers both ablative and non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing. The reason it is so effective for sun damage is it can be used to target specific layers of the skin. This allows us to precisely target and eliminate the damage. In the past, lasers either could not get deep enough to affect the area or they penetrated so deep that they resulted in a lot of downtime. The Halo™ laser eliminates both of these problems.
When you come in for your treatment, we will ensure your comfort before beginning. The specialized handpiece used is then rolled across your face in a criss-cross pattern. While this is happening, the integrated cooling technology will ensure you are comfortable. Since both types of lasers are used, both the dermis and epidermis are treated at the same time.
Improvements will continue to develop after the treatment as your body produces more collagen. Many people see their desired results after just one treatment. How many is right for you is something that can be discussed at your consultation.
