Frequently Asked Questions: Halo Fractional Laser Skin Resurfacing in Chesapeake, VA
Halo is the world’s first hybrid laser, which means it revitalizes skin with two types of laser energy for dramatic overall rejuvenating benefits. What’s more, Halo is a fractionated laser, which means it treats a perfectly balanced fraction of skin to speed healing without sacrificing any of the benefits of resurfacing. During treatment, Halo creates thousands of tiny treatment channels in the skin, prompting new collagen and elastin growth for a wide range of complexion benefits, including brighter, smoother skin with more even tone, smaller pore size, diminished lines and wrinkles, improved scarring and much more.
Halo fractional laser at Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa in Chesapeake, VA is truly a revolutionary and pioneering innovation because it’s the world’s first hybrid fractional skin resurfacing laser. This means that Halo combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in one device to treat multiple levels of the skin simultaneously for a wide range of complexion improvements with less downtime than comparable skin resurfacing technologies (i.e., CO2 full-field ablative lasers).
Downtime depends on the intensity of your treatment. Milder Halo treatments typically result in a few days of redness and flaking, whereas more intense Halo treatments can involve up to a week of social downtime as your skin renews itself.
Halo is a well-tolerated treatment! To ensure your comfort, we will first numb your treatment areas with a topical numbing cream. Furthermore, Halo laser has Dynamic Thermal Optimization (DTO), which monitors the temperature of the treated skin to modify the laser treatment according to each patient for optimal results. Halo also features integrated cooling of the skin during treatment to help maintain comfort. Immediately following your treatment (for about one hour), your face may feel intensely sunburned, depending on the intensity of your Halo treatment. We recommend keeping your face by a fan for that one hour following your treatment until any discomfort subsides. We promise it will!
Typically, one treatment is all you need to enjoy impressive complexion benefits that last. We recommend undergoing maintenance Halo treatments every few years or even once a year, depending on your needs, to maintain your results for the long term.
Your treatment cost will depend on the size and number of areas you are treating. We will work with you to formulate the ideal plan that meets your unique complexion needs and goals.
Immediately following your treatment, your skin will be bright red, and will look and feel sunburned. This intense sunburned sensation will last about one hour and then dissipate. In the next few days, redness will fade to brown as your injured skin starts to renew itself and form a patina-like crust. This “crust” will gradually slough off by the end of the week to reveal vibrant, intensely revitalized new skin.
You can expect to see improvements in the first month as your skin renews itself and produces vibrant new collagen and elastin. Improvements can include smoother, brighter skin with a reduction of fine lines, age spots, pore size and scarring.
