With all of the medical aesthetic treatments on the market, it can be difficult for people to know exactly which will best address their concerns.
Laser treatments offer dramatic skin-rejuvenating results, but there are many laser procedures to choose from – some of which may be more suited to your needs over another. The Halo® Laser, for instance, is a great option for clients who want to achieve dramatic results without taking significant time off work or social activities to heal.
When considering whether to have a Halo laser treatment in North Houston at Medical Aesthetics & Laser, it is important to ask the following questions:
If you have begun to notice一and feel bothered by一the signs of aging, dark pigmentation, uneven skin tone, or enlarged pores, and you want a gentle, yet effective treatment, you are likely an excellent candidate for Halo treatments at our office in The Woodlands.
Thanks to the Halo laser’s state-of-the-art hybrid fractional technology, we can customize your Halo treatment entirely to your specific needs, including balancing the aggressiveness of the treatment to put you in more control of your recovery time.
During your initial skin consultation with our experienced laser specialists, we will evaluate your health & medical history, explain the laser treatment process, and go over all your questions to ensure you are an ideal candidate for a Halo treatment in North Houston.
After your consultation & thorough skin analysis, we will schedule your appointment for your Halo treatment. We will also provide you with all necessary pre-treatment instructions, including medications or supplements, med spa treatments, and topical skin care products you may need to avoid.
On the day of your laser treatment, you should arrive at our office in The Woodlands with a clean, dry face and comfortable clothing. We will first apply a topical numbing cream, which will remain on the skin for about an hour to minimize any discomfort the laser may cause.
For the laser treatment, you will sit or lie down and we will protect your eyes with special safety shields. Your laser clinician will then treat the area(s) of your skin section by section, rolling the Halo handpiece in a criss-cross pattern until the the treatment is complete.
Note: Facial treatments take approximately 35 to 45 minutes, chest or neck treatments are approximately 20 minutes, we can treat hands in 15 minutes or fewer, and some body zones can take up to 90 minutes.
Since we tailor the procedure to each individual’s needs, each client responds differently to Halo treatments. Typically, clients’ skin will appear red and swollen immediately after the treatment, and may feel like a sunburn. The skin may appear more “bronzed” as well while the targeted spots of hyperpigmentation resolve themselves.
Compared with other laser resurfacing treatments which may require over a full week of downtime, the Halo laser offers similar results, but with much more minimal recovery time.
Depending on how aggressive the treatment with the Halo laser is, clients can expect to take 2-5 days of downtime.
The short-term benefits of a Halo treatment can be seen within a week of the procedure, with long-term skin rejuvenating benefits revealing themselves over several months. With adequate sun protection and healthy skin care practices, clients can make the results of their Halo treatment last for years!
