What is HALO Laser? How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works

What is HALO Laser? How Laser Skin Resurfacing Works

It’s really difficult to protect your skin from everything the world throws at it when you’re consistently exposed to harmful UV rays, blue light, and air pollution. These are daily occurrences, and with time, they take their toll on the skin. Eventually, you begin to notice dullness, stretch marks, and other skin concerns that become more challenging to address.

The HALO treatment is a hybrid fractional laser that treats an incredible amount of skin conditions. From sun damage to large pores to fine lines, wrinkles, and texture issues, HALO laser can handle it. It’s one of the most sought-after aesthetic treatments in the world!

Target the face, neck, décolletage, and the body for complete skin rejuvenation. Let’s go through how the system works and what you can expect from HALO skin treatment.

How & Why HALO Laser Treatment Works

Unlike other laser skin resurfacing solutions available, HALO is the very first hybrid fractional laser. It combines non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to vaporize damaged tissue. And while other lasers only treat about 5% of the skin, HALO treats between 25-30%. That means you get more dramatic results in less time.

Under the care of an experienced practitioner, HALO emits pulses of both wavelengths into the skin, triggering your body’s healing response. Not only does this work to eliminate tissue, but it promotes new tissue regeneration. The result is a fresher, more youthful appearance with healthier skin.

*Results may vary depending on your skin condition, goals, and the number of treatments you choose. Don’t hesitate to schedule a complimentary consultation to discuss your specific expectations!

Laser HALO Treatment Benefits

One reason that the HALO laser is so popular is that it’s effective for any skin type. Nearly anyone can improve the skin on their face, neck, and body. HALO laser is customizable for just about anywhere on the body, including the hands and legs.

As a complete skin revitalization laser treatment, HALO offers benefits such as:

  • Overall skin improvement

  • Reduction of fine lines and wrinkles

  • Smaller pore size

  • Better skin reflectivity

  • Healthier skin glow

  • Removal of discoloration

Most patients see incredible transformations in their skin with just one or two sessions. This is remarkable when you think about other laser treatments requiring as many as five or six sessions to achieve similar results. That’s the power of HALO’s hybrid technology.

What to Expect with Your HALO Treatment

Before your HALO appointment with KP Aesthetics, you’ll meet with a professional for a complimentary consultation. This is the process for many med spas, to give you the chance to sit down and talk through your expectations and goals. We are here to answer any questions, address any concerns, and create a plan together.

On the day of, your provider will give you a numbing cream to apply an hour before your appointment. This helps with any potential discomfort during the session.

Most patients who feel sensations during HALO laser treatment explain it as a quick zap of heat, but nothing painful. Each session takes anywhere from 30-60 minutes. There is little to downtime with HALO, so you can get back to your routine quickly.

Side Effects of HALO

It’s normal after your laser skin resurfacing treatment to experience redness and swelling. Some patients feel as though they spent a bit too much time in the sun. These symptoms will subside within a few days.

HALO Laser Treatment Aftercare

One of the most important things to remember after HALO laser is sunscreen. Of course, you should be wearing sunscreen every day. But no matter what, this is the time to protect your skin as it’s healing. Be sure to keep your skin moisturized – it will be nice and soothing along with helping to boost your results. The day after your treatment, you can wear makeup if you would like.

On days two to three, the skin will start to feel a bit like sandpaper. This is because your body is processing out microscopic epidermal necrotic debris (MENDS). Let the skin naturally exfoliate, using only gentle cleansers and moisturizers.

You might choose to have some social downtime as the treated skin sloughs off for healthy skin to replace it. This is something to keep in mind when planning for your session.

What Does HALO Laser Do to Your Face?

HALO skin treatments use heat and light energy to renew your skin. Motion-tracking technology helps ensure even and uniform treatment throughout the area of your choice. By vaporizing damaged tissue and stimulating new tissue growth, your face becomes brighter and your skin tighter.

While most laser solutions require many sessions to reach your goals, HALO provides visible results after one treatment. Depending on your goals and skin condition, your provider may recommend one treatment, or a series of sessions if you have more severe concerns to address.

How Long Do HALO Laser Results Last?

Your first visible improvements will show within 3 to 6 days. One of the best parts about HALO treatment is that your body continues to develop new collagen, so you will continue to see ongoing improvements with time.

You can expect even skin tone and texture after HALO treatment. The anti-aging results and improved light reflex are known as the ‘HALO glow’. They will last for years! To maintain the best HALO results, be sure you continue using UV sunscreen that protects your skin.

HALO and BBL

Many patients combine HALO and BroadBand Light BBL because it maximizes all the possible benefits. Each treatment addresses different concerns, and bringing them together offers dramatic improvements and immediate results.

BBL treats many indications, from vascular lesions to acne, skin texture, unwanted hair, and pigmented lesions. Its results are instant, and like HALO, comes with minimal downtime. BBL is best-in-class for its capabilities, manipulating the genes to more closely match those of young skin.

’Tis the season for spooky decorations and disguising ourselves behind elaborate masks and makeup. But at KP Aesthetics, we’re getting into the Halloween spirit by helping clients reveal their true natural beauty.

In addition to our renowned CoolSculpting® treatments for clients in Newtown Square, PA, and the surrounding region, we’re excited to offer the Vampire Facial, a skin care procedure made famous a few years ago by Kim Kardashian West.

What exactly is a Vampire Facial? We’re glad you asked! Also known as a Blood Facial or Plasma facial, this cosmetic procedure involves extracting a bit of blood from a client’s arm, removing the plasma and platelets from the blood, and injecting it back into the face with the use of microneedles. 

No, a Vampire Facial won’t erase your reflection in the mirror. Quite the contrary! The treatment offers a long list of beauty benefits, which we have illustrated in this infographic.

If you’ve been struggling with acne scars, sun damage, or the natural effects of aging, and over-the-counter skin care creams or traditional facial treatments haven’t seemed to make a difference, a Vampire Facial could be the ideal way to treat yourself this fall. For more information about this procedure, our other medical facial treatments, or our CoolSculpting® solutions for a firmer, tighter stomach, visit us in Newtown Square, PA, or fill out an online contact form today!

Collagen Induction Therapy Through Microneedling

Collagen Induction Therapy Through Microneedling

Microneedling is an excellent treatment for promoting healthy skin and reducing the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and scars.* Microneedling is able to provide these benefits through a process known as collagen induction therapy.

Microneedling is accomplished by using a special pen tool, equipped with fine needles, to create very minor damage in the dermis and epidermis. This triggers the collagen induction process. During this process, the production of collagen is stimulated. Collagen is an essential component for healthy and tight skin. Once the process is complete, your skin should feel smooth and fresh.*
