Why Fractional Resurfacing Is a Game-Changer

As the years go by, the natural aging process and days of fun in the sun can leave your skin with lines, wrinkles, and sunspots. Most lasers on the market don’t effectively target the signs of aging and sun damage because treatments are either too shallow or too deep. Desert Eyesthetics is proud to introduce Halo fractional resurfacing, the revolutionary procedure that targets the right skin depth with precision, restoring your youthful, luminous glow.

Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser: An Overview

Halo, the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, is a game-changer when it comes to skin resurfacing. The revolutionary device simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths to the same microscopic treatment zone, producing dramatic skin rejuvenation results with minimal to no discomfort or downtime.

Halo combines deep dermal rejuvenation treatment with epidermal renewal, providing a synergistic effect you can’t get with any other procedure. It delivers results comparable to more intense treatments without downtime or side effects. Halo fractional resurfacing has been shown to be safe and effective for all skin types, providing a superior patient experience.

Halo provides fully customizable treatments to precisely target skin damage. Need to resume your daily routine right away? A light treatment regimen delivers smooth and vibrant skin ready for makeup the next day. Looking for more dramatic results? A more intense resurfacing treatment will restore your youthful glow with just a few days of downtime.

What Conditions Can Halo Address?

Halo laser skin resurfacing treatments are ideal for targeting a range of skin conditions on the face and most parts of the body. It virtually erases the visible signs of aging and sun damage, improves the appearance of sunspots and age spots, shrinks enlarged pores, improves uneven tone and texture, and softens fine lines and wrinkles. It also helps improve skin discoloration and acne scars.

How Many Treatments Do You Need?

The number of treatments you’ll require will depend on your unique needs and desired outcomes. You may opt for one or two more aggressive treatments or choose to have several less aggressive treatments to achieve similar outcomes over an extended period. We recommend follow-up treatments every 1-2 years to maintain your stunning results.

What Should You Expect During Treatment?

Thirty minutes to an hour before your transformative procedure, our clinician may apply a topical anesthetic to the treatment area to reduce any discomfort. Halo’s revolutionary motion tracking technology will measure the area to ensure even treatment. Your clinician will roll the Halo Handpiece over each measured area uniformly until the system recognizes that the treatment is complete.

With the topical anesthetic and innovative integrated cooling technology, most patients report little to no discomfort. Many describe the sensation as a feeling of heat with an occasional pricking sensation. After treatment, you may continue to feel warm for another 15-30 minutes or longer if you’ve opted for deeper treatment levels.

What Should You Expect After Treatment?

For the first 72 hours, make sure to protect your skin as per our care instructions. For facial treatments, you will see very little change the next day. After 2-3 days, you’ll develop a light bronzing appearance. Your skin will begin peeling by day 3-4, revealing new, healthy skin beneath.

Most patients see initial results 2-5 days after a Halo treatment, but the anti-aging benefits continue to take place over time. The most dramatic pigmentary improvement occurs in the first 2 to 3 weeks, followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to produce stunning skin rejuvenation results for months.

Your Halo fractional resurfacing results will last for years to come. However, it’s essential to keep your skin protected using UV sunscreen. Each additional Halo treatment you receive will only improve your results, leaving you with a beautifully rejuvenated appearance.
