One of your favorite parts about living in California is likely the sunny weather. The ability to head to the beach all year round to soak up some rays is a dream. While the sun is healing, it’s also very harmful to your skin — 90% of visible aging is linked to the sun.
If you’re like most, you might wish you could turn back time and tell your younger self the importance of wearing sunscreen every day. Although there’s no time machine we know to exist, the next best thing is laser therapy.
The skin care experts at Shantique Med Spa located in Torrance, California use the revolutionary Halo Laser™ to erase wrinkles and revitalize your skin. Here’s everything you need to know.
How it works
If you’ve ever researched anti-aging treatments, you’re probably familiar with laser therapy. Laser therapy is one of the best ways to improve aging skin with over 4.1 million treatments performed in 2019. At the top of the list of laser technologies is the comprehensive Halo laser which has been changing the world of skin care.
When you come in for a Halo treatment, your skin care technician first applies a topical numbing cream to your face. To start the procedure, your technician uses the Halo handpiece to take measurements of your skin so they can target your unique complexion.
Next, they roll the laser over different parts of your skin to heal it from the inside out. The laser portion only takes about fifteen minutes meaning it will be over and done before you know it.
First of its kind
Not all lasers are the same and not all lasers are as powerful as the Halo laser. The Halo is revolutionary because it’s the only laser of its kind that delivers both ablative and non-ablative laser energy to dramatically change your skin.
Ablative lasers focus on emitting a wavelength to the top layer of your skin, gently removing the skin and years of sun damage. A non-ablative laser works by heating the under layers of your skin to encourage collagen reproduction and the regeneration of healthy, new skin.
Luckily with the Halo laser, you don’t have to pick one. Combining the two technologies in one treatment gives you a comprehensive skin care rejuvenation that addresses multiple skin concerns.
What it helps
The point of every skin care treatment is to give you a more radiant appearance. If you’re like most people, you probably have several skin issues you’d like to address.
Halo laser resurfacing provides one of the most effective ways to eliminate age-related skin problems. You can expect a noticeable improvement in skin concerns like:
- Wrinkles and fine lines
- Skin texture
- Enlarged pores
- Sun damage
The Halo Laser is safe for every skin color and skin type. Although most commonly used on the face, the Halo laser can safely be used on other parts of the body like the neck, chest, and legs.
More comfortable than other treatments
We all want beautiful skin and look to procedures that will help us get there. However, many treatments are uncomfortable or even painful. Luckily, the Halo laser was designed with your comfort in mind.
The Halo laser puts your comfort front and center with two intelligent features. The integrated cooling system assists the laser light with cold air so you feel the least amount of discomfort. The DTO is an intelligent system that allows each 1470 nm pulse to be adjusted based on the temperature of your skin.
Wear make-up the next day
Many patients shy away from laser therapy because of the long recovery time. With the Halo laser, you can expect the least amount of recovery time.
While redness and swelling is a normal side effect from treatment, this can easily be hidden with concealer and make-up which can be worn 24 hours after treatment. Most patients find that their side effects are mild and reside in less than a week.
