Frequently Asked Questions about Halo Laser Skin Treatment in Denver, CO
How exactly does Halo fractional laser skin resurfacing work?
Halo provides both ablative and non-ablative treatment of your skin. A fractional laser, Halo ablates a perfectly even and balanced fraction of your skin, creating thousands of micro treatment channels to stimulate your skin’s natural healing response and spur new collagen and elastin growth. By treating only a fraction of skin, Halo leaves a portion of the surrounding skin intact to speed healing time. Halo also treats the surface of your skin with non-ablative energy, which stimulates skin renewal without harming the surface of your skin. What this means to you is that Halo rejuvenates your skin in a variety of ways, and at numerous levels, to provide exceptional benefits with maximum comfort and ease.
What happens during a Halo treatment?
Halo is extremely comfortable and well-tolerated. We will numb your skin with a topical numbing agent to ensure your comfort. You will feel cool air blown over your face while we perform the Halo treatment. Our medical professional will carefully tailor your Halo session to your skin’s unique needs, slowly working the laser around your face or other treatment areas, such as the neck, chest and hands, to treat every inch of your skin with precise intensity.
How long does a Halo treatment take?
From start to finish, including the application of an anesthetic and a post-treatment soothing ointment, the Halo treatment takes about 90 minutes to complete.
How much downtime is there with Halo?
Your downtime depends on the intensity of your treatment. Milder treatments may incur a few days of pinkness and flaking, while more intense treatments may result in up to a week or more of redness and flaking. In general, we advise patients to expect a few days of social downtime as your skin renews itself.
What will my skin look like after a Halo treatment?
You will leave our office with reddish or pink skin that feels sunburned. Your skin may sting and feel sore the first few hours after treatment, but this pain will subside within a few hours. For intense treatments, your skin will slowly fade from a reddish-pink color to a brown, sandpaper-like texture. This is completely normal, and will gradually slough off to reveal smoother, intensely revitalized new skin within a week.
When will I notice my results?
Once your skin finishes renewing itself, you will notice immediate improvements to the tone and texture of your skin, including a brighter, more evenly-toned complexion that looks healthy and radiant. Since collagen and elastin growth are slow processes, you will notice continued improvements, with optimal benefits appearing up to 3 to 6 months following treatment.
Is Halo right for me?
Halo is appropriate for almost every skin type and concern. We can determine the exact intensity for your treatment during your consultation.
