Resurfacing with HALO™ Pro
Laser skin resurfacing technology has made incredible advancements over the past decade. If you once considered laser skin resurfacing treatments, but were wary about the results, it is time to discuss new, innovative options with your cosmetic team at Dermatology Associates of Plymouth Meeting.
What Makes HALO™ Pro Different
HALO™ Pro is among the most innovative lasers on the market today and is the only hybrid fractional laser of its kind. It offers deep dermal rejuvenation without the long recovery associated with more aggressive lasers. Whether you have fine lines, wrinkles, brown spots or other skin issues, HALO™ Pro is extremely tunable to offer enhanced, customizable results.
Impressive Results With a Hybrid Fractional Laser
The reason HALO™ Pro delivers such impressive results is because it is a hybrid fractional laser, meaning it combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to deliver the best benefits of each type of laser while also minimizing downtime.
Combining Ablative and Non-Ablative Lasers
Before HALO™, lasers were either ablative—which are effective at improving skin texture and tone, but not ideal for anti-aging concerns—or non-ablative, which treats wrinkles and acne scarring well, but requires a series of treatments for best results. Halo™ Pro combines the benefits of each for a truly unique laser skin resurfacing treatment.
Tunable Wavelengths = Customized Results
As the only hybrid fractional laser of its kind, HALO™ Pro combines tunable non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone to maximize results and reduce downtime. These two wavelengths being contained in the same head mean HALO™ Pro treatments are more efficient than single-wavelength lasers. While older technologies like CO2 lasers, Fraxel and Clear and Brilliant™ would require extended healing time due to an extremely sensitive (sometimes painful) face, HALO™ Pro delivers predictable results and adjustable downtime.
What to Expect From Laser Skin Resurfacing With HALO™ Pro
HALO™ Pro is a top choice among our cosmetic dermatologists for delivering remarkable results in as little as 1-2 treatments. All skin types are treatable with HALO™ Pro and it is often an ideal treatment for:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Sun damage
- Texture irregularities
- Scar revision (including acne scars)
- Signs of aging
- Pigmented lesions
- Enlarged pores
Where can HALO™ Pro be Used?
Additionally, HALO™ Pro can be used on almost any area, including the face, hands, and décolletage.
What to Expect During Your Treatment
HALO™ Pro treatments are faster and more comfortable for patients than traditional fractional skin resurfacing treatments. The handpiece includes integrated air cooling and smoke evacuation which helps to make the experience as pleasant as possible. Depending on the scope of your treatment, a topical anesthetic can be applied to make the experience more comfortable.
What Happens After Treatment?
Patients generally heal quickly enough to be able to wear makeup within 24 hours of treatment, although this is not always the case. Your skin could range from being slightly pink to being extremely tender, depending on how your dermatologist uses the laser to achieve your intended outcome. A noticeable improvement is usually seen within a few weeks, with results continuing to improve over time as the skin’s healing response continues to trigger the growth of new collagen.
How Much Does Halo™ Pro Hybrid Fractional Laser Treatment Cost?
Since HALO™ Pro is customizable and we specialize in personalized care, treatment costs can vary. Your treatment type and the number of treatments will be tailored to meet your goals and fit your lifestyle. We offer several financing options in order to help you fit your aesthetic needs into your budget including Care Credit.
