Restore your Skin’s Glow with HALO™!

Is your skin in a transitional Winter “slump?” Winter in the Midwest can zap your skin of vital moisture and hydration leading to dead skin cell buildup that leaves you looking AND feeling dull and lifeless. Luckily, Spring is here and now is the perfect time to investigate laser skin treatments that will revive and rejuvenate your skin’s appearance and health. This year, Face Cosmetic Skincare has the ideal, multi-faceted solution. Here are the top five ways our new HALO™ Hybrid Fractional Laser can help you say goodbye to Winter skin and hello to a bright, beautiful Spring!

#1 – HALO addresses multiple concerns in ONE TREATMENT

Look at our Sciton HALO Hybrid Fractional Laser like a combination therapy for your skin.  To date, it is the only non-ablative and ablative laser in one.  With HALO, ablative and non-ablative energies pulse simultaneously and are absorbed at your skin’s surface and within deeper layers.  This feature allows HALO to treat multiple skin concerns you may have, like sun damage and enlarged pores, all in one treatment.

“Our new HALO fractional laser is so unique in that it can treat so many skin concerns that used to require multiple lasers,” says Cyndi, a Licensed Esthetician and Certified Laser Technician at Face Cosmetic Skincare. “If you are concerned about fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, large pores, acne scarring, or poor skin tone or texture—you’ll benefit from HALO!”

#2 – HALO saves you time and gets you faster results.

Before HALO came along, a patient who had concerns about sun damage and acne scarring would have been recommended two separate treatments; most likely Broad Band Light (BBL) to lighten pigment damage and an ablative laser, like Sciton’s MicroLaser Peel to resurface acne scarring and stimulate fresh collagen.  Because HALO combines BOTH non-ablative AND ablative capabilities, a patient can experience and benefit from both technologies in one treatment.

In the past, that patient may have been recommended a series of 3 to 6 treatments of each laser technology to see noticeable results. Because of the way the energy of a HALO treatment is administered to your skin, it can deliver stronger energy leading to fewer treatments needed for significant improvement and faster results.

#3 – HALO has minimal downtime.

“In the past, I’ve been frustrated with a lot of ablative laser resurfacing treatments because they required so much downtime for my patients,” shares Cyndi.  “It’s tough to plan for extended downtime when you’re busy with work and family obligations,” she continues.  “I have loved working with HALO because it’s so much easier for my patients to fit into their lifestyles and schedules, but it still delivers fantastic results!”

Traditional laser resurfacing can carry significant downtime depending on the depth of your procedure. More downtime leads to less time living for you! It can even mean time away from work and family activities. Many patients find that HALO is much easier to fit into their schedules, frequently scheduling the procedure on a Friday afternoon and returning to work the following Monday with makeup to cover any residual or redness or “bronzing” associated with the treatment.

HALO treatments are customized to focus on your areas of concern. Light treatments leave you “make-up ready” and glowing the next day, but may require multiple treatments to achieve your desired results. Deeper HALO treatments require just a few days of downtime with no make-up for 24 hours and a sunburned feeling to the skin but deliver a faster “WOW-Factor” to your complexion

#4 – HALO can benefit all skin types and ages.

Whether you’re in your 20’s and looking to improve the appearance of your acne scarring or in your 60’s and wanting to enhance your skin’s smoothness, tone, and tightness, you’ll benefit from HALO. Because of the multitude of skin conditions HALO can improve, it has a universality that few other lasers can claim.

Also, HALO is much safer for darker skin types. Your laser clinician is able to customize the settings on the laser to safely and effectively treat darker skin types that have had to traditionally avoid laser resurfacing in the past due to possible complications.

#5 – HALO improves the quality of your skin, not just the appearance.

We all want beautiful looking skin, but what about skin that actually functions in a healthier, more youthful way?

“I know that most of my patients focus on the visible results of a treatment like HALO, but I am consistently impressed by how much healthier their skin becomes with repeated treatments,” says Cyndi. “While we’re removing sun damage and resurfacing fine lines, HALO is working deep within your skin to stimulate fresh collagen and elastin,” she continues. “This process makes your skin thicker, firmer, and more resilient—basically, your skin starts behaving like it’s younger!
