Halo Laser Before and After
Halo laser is an effective skin treatment that can transform your skin’s appearance.
Having a clear understanding of how Halo laser works can deepen your appreciation for its successful results. Halo laser treatment is a unique skin enhancement procedure that combines the power of both ablative and non-ablative lasers.
Ablative lasers heat and resurface the skin’s top layer, causing minor damage that triggers collagen production and new skin cell growth. This process effectively removes damaged skin and promotes the development of rejuvenated skin. The non-ablative lasers send energy into the deeper skin layers, stimulating further collagen production and cell renewal.
Before the Halo laser treatment, patients can struggle with a variety of skin issues. Common issues include pigmentation, acne scarring, sun damage, enlarged pores, and skin texture. Patients may also face premature ageing signs, such as skin laxity, fine lines, and wrinkles.
The transition from before to after offers noticeable results. After Halo laser treatment, patients usually report improved skin texture, reduced pore size, and the diminishing of scars and discolouration. The skin appears revitalised, younger, and healthier than ever.
Halo Laser Treatment Before and After
We highlight what you can expect before and after your Halo laser treatment:
Before Halo Laser
Before your Halo laser treatment, you will need to have an in-depth consultation with a practitioner to address your skin concerns. Based on the questions and skin check during the consultation, the practitioner will then tailor a treatment plan to match your skin’s unique needs.
You will need to take the correct preparation steps before your Halo laser treatment. Two weeks before the treatment, you will need to avoid any sun exposure and stop using self-tanning products. One week before the treatment, you will need to use gentle skincare products to avoid irritating your skin.
48 hours before your treatment, you will need to meet with your practitioner to have a patch test. On the day of the treatment, you will need to arrive with the treatment area free from makeup, sunscreen, or moisturiser.
After Halo Laser
During the treatment, a hand-held device delivers both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to the skin. This dual laser action causes micro-damage, resulting in collagen and elastin production. The treatment will be customised to treat your specific skin concerns, ensuring get effective results.
Immediately after the treatment, you may experience a few side effects. These can include redness, tenderness, and swelling. These side effects are normal and should subside after a few hours to a week.
A few days after the treatment, you may experience peeling or flaking skin. This is a standard part of the healing process.
During the healing process after the treatment, you will notice improvements in your skin’s texture, tone, and appearance. These initial results will usually appear within a week. The results will continue to improve in the following weeks, resulting in rejuvenated skin.
Halo Laser Before and After Care
Aftercare is essential after your Halo laser treatment. This will ensure you get the
best possible results and minimise your risk of any complications. Your practitioner will provide you with personalised aftercare instructions to follow.
Follow these aftercare tips to maximise the results and speed up the recovery process:
- Avoid Sun Exposure: Direct sunlight can cause damage and hinder the healing process. It is best to stay out of the sun or wear a broad-spectrum SPF 30 or higher when going outside.
- Gentle Skincare: Use a gentle, non-abrasive cleanser to wash your face. Avoid using harsh products that may irritate the skin.
- Hydrate and Moisturise: Keep your skin well-hydrated by drinking plenty of water and using a quality moisturiser. This aids in the healing process and helps to soothe the skin.
- Avoid Heat: Keep away from saunas, hot showers and any physical activity that could cause sweating or overheating for at least a few days after treatment.
- Hands Off: Try not to touch, pick, or scratch the treated area. It is especially important to not pick any flaking or peeling skin. This can lead to scarring and infection.
- Healthy Eating: A nutritious diet supports skin health and recovery. Focus on antioxidant-rich foods, which can aid in skin healing.
