Do you have skin imperfections you try to hide with makeup? Maybe you have thought about fractional resurfacing or another service to help your skin look better but shy away at the cost or recovery time. If these apply to you, you should consider a Halo treatment.
This relatively new treatment is getting rave reviews across the country and around the world for its effectiveness and quick recovery. Halo treatments are an excellent alternative to more traditional skin treatments.
At Afzal Clinics, we focus on bringing you the best possible treatments at the best prices with the friendliest staff. We work hard to ensure we are the best-trained clinic, so you are in the best hands. Call us today and schedule a consultation.
What is Halo Treatment?
Traditionally, skin treatments offered great results with a more extended downtime or just ok results with a fast recovery. Halo Treatment combines the best of both worlds. Patients notice fantastic effects and can be back in their everyday routine within a day or two.
A Halo Treatment “delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone.” This statement is a fancy way of saying that the laser can be applied to specific depths to encourage new collagen development and improve your skin texture. By using two types of wavelengths, you will get the most benefit possible for the least amount of downtime.
What are the Benefits of a Halo Treatment?
As mentioned before, Halo gives you the benefit of both worlds. You get a one-of-a-kind treatment that offers incredible results with little to no downtime after the procedure.
Halo is a relatively gentle treatment that does not rely on harsh chemicals or techniques. Most patients report little to no discomfort.
Furthermore, Halo treats skin damage that is visible on the surface, as well as the deeper, subcutaneous damage you can’t see. The benefits do not stop when you walk out of the door of your doctor’s office, either. Your skin will continue to improve during the “dermal regeneration phase.”
What Does a Halo Treatment Target?
People throughout the world choose Halo Treatments for a variety of reasons because Halo addresses so many skin issues. You can count on Halo improving:
- Skin discoloration
- Damage from sun exposure
- Signs of aging
- Uneven skin tone
- Visible or large pores
- Fine lines and wrinkles
Because Halo can address so many problems, it is quickly becoming a popular treatment. People report amazing results with all of these conditions and more.
Who is the Ideal Candidate for a Halo Treatment?
There is no one perfect candidate for Halo Treatments because it can address so many needs. Typically, however, an ideal candidate would be between 30 and 60 years old and have light skin that has sustained damage over the years. The improvement needed would be to address problems with texture, lines, and discoloration.
Halo Treatments are most often performed on the face, though clinicians may administer them to the hands, neck, chest, or shoulders. An ideal candidate would prefer the best treatment possible with the least amount of downtime.
What to Expect During and After a Halo Treatment
Halo Treatments typically last around 90 minutes. When you arrive for your appointment, the clinician will apply a cream to slightly numb the treatment area to limit the sensations you feel.
During the treatment, a clinician will roll the Halo hand piece over the treatment area. A sophisticated system will track the treatment applied to each area and inform the clinician when the procedure is complete. There is no risk of uneven or incomplete treatment.
Most patients report little to no discomfort during or after the procedure. Many say they noticed a hot sensation and sometimes a light pricking feeling. Almost all patients say they were generally comfortable. The warm sensation may last up to 30 minutes after the treatment.
For the first day after treatment, you will want to protect your skin from the sun and elements. Your Afzal Clinic doctor will likely give you detailed instructions for care. After the first 24 hours, you should be able to return to normal activities, including wearing makeup.
After 24 hours, your skin will likely begin to peel. At around two to three days, your skin will be a light bronze color. Around day three or four, your skin will peel, and you will see your new, healthy, and revitalized skin.
You will see the initial results after four or five days. However, your skin will improve as time passes. Many patients report the best results around three weeks. Your skin will improve for months during the dermal regeneration phase, as well.
One of the best parts of a Halo Treatment, outside of the fantastic results and minimal downtime, is how long the effects last. You should notice the benefits for years. You should also continue to care for your skin when you are in the sun, however.
More Halo Treatments will lead to better and better skin.
