The ins and outs of everyday life take a toll on your skin. Sun damage and the natural aging process can leave you with fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration, and a reflection in the mirror you may not even recognize.
While you can’t stop the hands of time, you can do something about your skin. Laser resurfacing is a popular treatment that removes old, damaged skin to reveal the younger, glowing skin beneath.
Shahinaz Soliman, MD, and her aesthetic team at Shantique MedSpa in Torrance, California can restore your youthful glow with revolutionary Halo™ laser therapy. Halo is the first hybrid fractional laser in the world of cosmetic medicine, delivering dramatic results without the downtime of other laser treatments.
Find out how Halo laser therapy can help you say goodbye to the signs of aging.
Halo’s hybrid fractional laser is tough on wrinkles but gentle on skin
Over the years, sun exposure and the natural aging process contribute to the look of fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, and sagging skin. Laser resurfacing is a powerful treatment to address all of these signs of aging to give your skin the glow it had in your youth.
Most laser resurfacing treatments use one type of wavelength to treat skin. And with these treatment options, patients had to choose between achieving significant results but suffering extended amounts of downtime or having very little downtime but also minor results.
Halo therapy uses nonablative and ablative wavelengths of light energy to give you the best of both worlds. The hybrid fractional laser technology built into Halo allows Dr. Soliman to target the same treatment area with both wavelengths. This results in both rejuvenation of the dermis (a deeper layer of your skin) and renewal of the top skin layer called the epidermis — maximizing your results while minimizing downtime.
Halo erases wrinkles and fine lines by stimulating regeneration of skin cells in the treatment area. As new skin grows, it’s tighter, smoother, and more youthful looking. Halo is the first laser of its kind to deliver the results of ablative lasers with the minimal downtime of nonablative treatment.
With Halo, Dr. Soliman can select the treatment that’s right for you or even develop a treatment program that’s completely unique to you. Depending on your aesthetic goals, she can adjust your therapy so you get great results.
What to expect with Halo therapy
Halo laser resurfacing works for all skin types and skin tones. Talk to Dr. Soliman and our team about Halo therapy if you’re bothered by:
- Facial lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Age spots and sun spots
- Acne scars
- Pigmented lesions
- Enlarged pores
Halo is a safe and effective therapy for laser resurfacing. It’s comfortable, and you can expect Dr. Soliman to apply only a topical anesthetic during treatment to help you relax. In general, no nerve blocks are needed.
Halo is equipped with Dynamic Thermal Optimization, which measures the temperature of your skin during treatment to ensure it stays at a therapeutic temperature. The integrated cooling system means you stay cool and comfortable throughout your session.
Halo’s technology ensures that aging skin is targeted while leaving healthy tissue undamaged to minimize downtime. In fact, most patients can return to wearing makeup and using their regular skin care products in as little as 24 hours after Halo therapy.
Dr. Soliman recommends 1-2 treatments with Halo for best results. You can expect to begin seeing smoother, more even-toned skin a few weeks after your first treatment, and results continue developing over time.
