The Halo laser is the first hybrid laser treatment to offer the best of both worlds in a single treatment session. This unique device features an innovative combination of technology that allows patients to achieve dramatic results with minimal downtime. If you are looking for a skin rejuvenation treatment that will give you stellar results during this busy holiday season, there are a few good reasons why the Halo laser might be the right treatment choice for you.
Ablative vs. Non-Ablative
Ablative laser procedures remove the outer layers of skin, revealing softer, smoother skin underneath. The procedure can be somewhat painful and typically involves an extended recovery period to allow treated skin ample time to heal. The results of ablative procedures are both dramatic and long-lasting, which is why many patients will undergo the discomfort and downtime to get the results they desire.
Non-ablative laser procedures are used primarily for skin rejuvenation, offering full skin exfoliation on a much more superficial level. Treatments usually involve minimal discomfort and patients can return to regular activities quickly, often as soon as the procedure is over. Results from non-ablative treatments are much more subtle and the procedure has to be repeated regularly to maintain positive results.
Hybrid Laser Combines Two Treatments into One
The Halo laser is unique in that it can provide both ablative and non-ablative results during a single treatment session. The technology allows the ablative laser to be delivered in fractional pulses, which limits the amount of damage the skin and underlying tissue suffer without compromising results. At the same time, non-ablative laser energy is delivered to improve the overall appearance of the skin and create a consistently smooth complexion.
The Halo laser incorporated Dynamic Thermal Optimization (DTO), which continuously measures the temperature of the skin and adjusts the energy’s density and pulse accordingly. This allows the Halo laser to be truly customized to the unique needs and concerns of every single patient, without sacrificing safety and patient comfort to achieve vibrant results. The laser treats a number of specific skin imperfections, including:
• Hyperpigmentation and brown spots
• Fine lines and facial wrinkles
• Signs of sun damage
• Irregular skin texture and tone
• Enlarged pores
• Shallow scarring
With excellent results and minimal downtime, the Halo laser is the perfect solution for refreshing your skin before Christmas and New Year’s. The technology is still relatively new and available from just a few plastic surgeons across the country. Dr. Burke Robinson is now offering Halo laser treatments to his Atlanta-area patients, giving them an innovative way to rejuvenate and treat the skin.
