Natural aging or exposure to sunlight can cause our skin to lose its youthful glow. As a result, you may have noticed problem areas, like sun spots and fine lines. Many patients seek laser therapy as a way to address these issues, but few have accomplished their goals as effectively as Halo™ by Sciton laser treatment. At Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery, our professionals know how to correct years of skin damage and restore your radiant glow.
So what is Halo treatment, and who are the best candidates for this procedure? When over-the-counter products are not enough to achieve a smooth skin texture, Halo delivers nonablative and ablative technology to the treatment zone. This gives patients the results they desire without discomfort or downtime. Learn more about laser skin resurfacing and Halo for skin tightening by scheduling a private appointment in Jacksonville, FL.
What is Halo treatment?
Lasers that only use ablative wavelengths provide dramatic results but require lengthy downtime. Although nonablative wavelengths are less invasive, patients may need multiple treatments before seeing noticeable results. Halo is the first hybrid laser that combines ablative and nonablative wavelengths to offer the best of both worlds. This means that patients at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery can enjoy healthy, beautiful skin with minimal downtime.
At our facility, we understand that each person’s skin goals are different. The Halo laser treatment allows us to personalize the procedure based on your unique needs and lifestyle. If you need to get back to work the next day, we can offer light treatment for smoother, vibrant skin with little irritation. Halo can also be combined with other nonsurgical treatments to provide optimal skin rejuvenation. During your consultation, one of our skin care experts can customize your plan.
Halo laser for wrinkles and sun damage
Anyone who is unhappy with early signs of aging or rough skin texture may be a candidate for laser skin resurfacing and Halo skin treatment. Ideal patients are in good health and have reasonable expectations for results. At your appointment, we can review several before and after photos so you have a good idea of what this laser can do for you. Halo can help with a wide range of skin concerns, such as:
Uneven skin tone
Wrinkles and fine lines
Adults of any age and skin type can use Halo as part of their skin care routine. Patients often use Halo for skin tightening and also as laser treatment for acne scars. At the beginning of your visit, the physicians at Ponte Vedra Plastic Surgery may take a short medical history to determine your candidacy. Patients with active acne, open sores, or who have used Accutane in the last year may not be candidates for Halo skin treatment at this time.
What happens during the Halo laser treatment
The Halo laser for wrinkles is a minimally invasive procedure that only requires a topical anesthetic. Once the numbing cream takes effect, the treatment only takes 30 – 60 minutes. Our technician will begin by carefully applying the Halo handpiece over the area for an even application. During the procedure, patients may experience some heat with a small prickling sensation. However, most people agree that any discomfort experienced is minimal. Patients may require several treatments over time, based on your goals and the condition of your skin. We help each patient determine the best way to move forward at our office in Jacksonville, FL.
Recovery from laser skin resurfacing
After Halo skin treatment, patients may continue to feel a warm sensation on their skin for about an hour but should be able to continue their activities as normal. The treated skin may peel the next day, but this can be covered with cosmetics and makeup. It is important not to pick or disturb the peeling as this may damage the skin. Most individuals see results in less than a week after their Halo treatment, and they will continue to improve over the next few months. The skin will be more sensitive after Halo, so speak with your doctor about sun protection and products to soothe and hydrate the skin.
