Jumpstart Your Fall Skincare With Halo Treatments For Sun Damage

September 19, 2023

How can halo treatments help your skin? The warm sunshine on your skin can be inviting, but prolonged exposure throughout summertime without proper sunscreen protection can wreak havoc on your skin. Sun damage in the form of wrinkles, fine lines, uneven pigmentation, and textural irregularities, can unfortunately prematurely age your skin and make you appear older than you are. 

Luckily, there are effective solutions to combat sun damage such as ablative and non ablative lasers, chemical peels, microneedling, facials, neuromodulators, and filler. One revolutionary treatment is Sciton’s Halo Laser. In this blog, we will delve into the benefits of using Halo Laser for treating sun-damaged skin.

What Does Sun Damage Do To Our Skin?

Before we dive into the benefits of Halo Laser, it’s essential to understand the nature of sun damage. Sun exposure over time can cause several issues, including:

  • Fine Lines and Wrinkles: UV rays break down collagen and elastin fibers, leading to the formation of fine lines and wrinkles.  Collagen and elastin are the most important structural proteins in the skin and we already lose 1% of our collagen annually starting in our mid 20s.
  • Hyperpigmentation: Sunspots, freckles, melasma, and uneven skin tone can result from excessive sun exposure, leading to a lack of uniformity in the skin’s color.
  • Texture Irregularities: Sun damage can cause a rough, uneven texture on the skin, making it look aged and tired.  This will also cause makeup to settle unevenly exacerbating texture.
  • Redness and Rosacea: Heat and chronic sun exposure can exacerbate redness and rosacea in sensitive skin.

What is a Halo Laser Treatment & How Does it Work?

Sciton’s Halo Laser employs hybrid fractional technology, which combines non-ablative and ablative laser wavelengths. This unique approach allows for precise and customizable treatment, targeting both the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. Halo Laser’s dual wavelengths can effectively target pigmentation irregularities and stimulate collagen production.

This results in a more even skin tone and improved texture, leaving your skin smoother and younger-looking. Halo Laser can be tailored to address your specific skin concerns. Your provider can adjust the treatment depth and intensity based on your individual needs, ensuring a personalized approach to sun damage repair.

What is the Downtime for Halo Treatments?

Unlike traditional ablative lasers that require extended downtime for recovery, Halo Laser offers minimal downtime. Halo Laser incorporates a built-in cooling system that helps minimize discomfort during the procedure, making it a more comfortable experience for patients. Patients can typically resume their daily activities within a few days, making it a convenient option for those with busy schedules. While multiple sessions may be required for optimal results, the improvements achieved with Halo Laser can be long-lasting. With proper sun protection and skincare maintenance, you can enjoy your rejuvenated skin for years to come.
