Halo Pro Nashville
As our skin ages, we gradually begin to notice the signs. Years of time in the sun or an active lifestyle starts showing through sun spots and damage. Enlarged pores, uneven skin tone and discoloration are all evidence of this. Through the use of our Halo Laser by Sciton, our providers are able to reverse these signs of aging. Using a combination of wavelengths to repair the skin, this fractional laser is the latest innovation in reversing skin care damage. Minimal downtime allows patients to experience a more youthful glow and even skin tone relatively soon after the treatment.
Is this Procedure for you?
The best candidates for a Halo laser treatment is a patient who feels their skin has a dull, uneven appearance. Brown spots, fine lines, poor texture and light scars can all be treated with this procedure.
When is the best time to have this procedure?
To reduce risks of hyperpigmentation following the treatment, our expert providers ask their patients to remain out of the sun for at least two weeks following the treatment and maintain constant sunscreen coverage.
For even more noticeable results and optimal improvement in pigmentation and skin texture, ask one of our expert providers about combining Halo with a Broad Band Laser.
In your initial consultation, one of our qualified and skillfully trained providers will evaluate your health, discuss your medical history and assess the contours of your face. They will then review your goals and make recommendations based on their evaluation. The techniques used in Halo laser treatments will be described in detail, and informational materials will be provided. Be sure to notify them of any medicine you are taking and if you have any allergies, active skin issues or illnesses. Your provider will walk you through any pre and post-treatment instructions to allow for the best results.
What to Expect
In most cases, the procedure will typically take about 90 minutes for numbing and treatment.
During the Procedure
Generally, no anesthesia is required for Halo treatments, although topical anesthetic cream will be used to numb the area. Our providers do offer the option of nitrous oxide sedation, a patient-controlled gas system, designed to provide relief from pain or anxiety. The provider performs several passes with the hand piece to deliver even, precise wavelengths across the skin.
After the procedure, you will be sent home with post-procedure product care and instructions. Patients who require more aggressive treatments may experience swelling, which will decrease in the first few days and is positive evidence of an effective treatment to improve pores and texture. You will experience dryness, redness and peeling five to seven days after your treatment.
