Many factors can take a negative toll on the skin, including the powerful UV rays of the sun, environmental pollution, and even the natural aging process. The Halo laser is designed to address the damage, healing the dermal structure and rejuvenating the appearance. From brown spots to wrinkles, this device is equipped to handle the needs of each patient with customizable solutions that provide just enough correction to produce an optimal outcome.

Dr. Scott Levitt offers Halo laser treatments at Levitt Medical Aesthetics to provide his patients with the latest technology in skin rejuvenation available today. The unique properties of the Halo make it a prime treatment for men and women of all ages and a broad range of skin concerns. By working on both the surface of the skin and deep within the dermal layers, the Halo laser produces results that are natural, dramatic and long-lasting.

What is the Halo Laser?

The Halo laser is the first hybrid fractional device to combine a ablative and non-ablative laser technology into a single procedure. With just one handpiece, patients can receive the restorative powers of the fractional process and dramatic results with minimal discomfort and downtime. The laser can be adjusted based on the number of sessions a patient wants to commit to scheduling and how quickly they want to achieve their desired results. With the ability to address a variety of skin imperfections at one time, the Halo laser offers superior skin rejuvenation regarding comfort, convenience and results.

Benefits of the Halo Laser

There are numerous reasons why the Halo laser is the treatment of choice for many patients at Levitt Medical Aesthetics:

  • The procedure offers different technologies to treat a broader range of issues
  • Customization and precision ensure patients get the exact amount of correction needed
  • The intensity of treatments can be adjusted to the patient’s goals and schedule
  • Ability to treat a broader range of skin types and tones than other laser devices
  • Improves the overall tone, texture and appearance of the skin

Candidates for the Halo Laser

Because the Halo laser is a hybrid device that combines both ablative and fractional laser technology, patients enjoy the best of both worlds from their Halo treatments. Halo can address many common skin concerns, including: Fine lines and deeper facial creases Pigmentation irregularities Brown spots and freckles Shallow scarring Enlarged pores Uneven skin texture or tone Visible signs of sun damage Candidates for this treatment should be in good health, with realistic expectations about what the procedure can do. In most cases, a commitment to a treatment plan that includes multiple sessions will yield the best possible results. Dr. Levitt and the staff at Levitt Medical Aesthetics carefully assess each patient to determine whether the Halo laser is the appropriate treatment for them.

The Halo Procedure

Once specific concerns and goals are identified, the treatment can begin. A topical anesthetic is applied to the skin beforehand to ensure patient comfort throughout. The device settings will be adjusted to the patient’s specific level of correction, and the handpiece is used to deliver the laser energy into the dermal structure. The handpiece is moved in a crisscross pattern across the treatment area, working in small sections at a time to produce a consistent, even result.

Topical anesthetic and an integrated cooling system create a comfortable treatment experience. Some patients do describe a prickly sensation during the process and for a short time afterward in some cases. The duration of treatment will vary based on the number and size of the treatment areas to be addressed.

After Your Halo Treatment

Recovery time after a Halo treatment varies depending on the depth and intensity of the procedure, but most patients find the time after the procedure to be comfortable. Most patients can apply makeup within 24 hours after the procedure, allowing them to return to their daily routine without worry people will know they just had a cosmetic procedure performed. Discomfort after treatment is minimal and not enough to keep you from any of your daily activities.

There is typically mild redness and swelling, which lasts for a day or two. Around three to five days after treatment, you will notice a collection of brown spots begin to form. These speckles are known as microscopic epithelial nectrotic debris or MENDS. These form as a part of the healing process, indicating treated tissue is working its way out of the skin so that fresh new skin can form beneath. The spots generally fall off within a day on their own. Within a week or so after your appointment, you will see the “Halo glow” appear on your skin that patients absolutely love.

Once you get your “glow” on, your skin will look smoother and imperfections and aging signs will be noticeably reduced. The improvements will continue in the weeks and even months following treatment as collagen production kicks in and the restorative processes create a refreshed, revitalized complexion. Patients that use sun protection and high-quality skin care products may enjoy their new look for years after their Halo treatment. Additional treatments can be performed when the patient determines a touch-up is required.

If you are looking for a comfortable way to rejuvenate your skin with minimal downtime involved, the Halo laser might be the right treatment for you. Contact Levitt Medical Aesthetics today at 541-500-3755 to schedule your consultation and learn more about this revolutionary device.
