Upgrade Your Next Halo Treatment With BBL

April 10, 2023

As we age, our skin can become damaged, and discolored. This can make us look older and less vibrant than we actually feel! At Atalo Aesthetics, we offer a variety of treatments to help you achieve refreshed and youthful-looking skin. One of our most popular treatments is the Halo treatment. It is a cutting-edge laser procedure that can help you achieve improvement in your skin’s appearance. Let’s explore what Halo treatment is, the benefits of combining it with BBL treatments, and what skin conditions can be treated.


What is the Halo treatment?

Halo is a skin resurfacing treatment that combines both ablative and non-ablative laser technologies to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin. It is an effective way to address a wide range of skin concerns. Concerns such as sun damage, age spots, fine lines and wrinkles, uneven skin tone and texture, and acne scars.

Halo treatment works by using two types of laser technology. The ablative laser targets the outermost layer of the skin. It removes damaged tissue and stimulates the growth of new, healthy skin cells. Meanwhile, the non-ablative laser penetrates deeper into the skin to promote collagen production and improve skin tone and texture.

During the treatment, the laser is carefully controlled to deliver precise amounts of energy to the skin. This ensures maximum effectiveness and safety. The procedure typically takes between 20 to 30 minutes. Times vary depending on the size of the treatment and the extent of the skin damage.

Following the treatment, patients may experience some redness and swelling. These side effects typically subside within a few days. Over time, the skin will continue to improve as collagen production is stimulated and new skin cells are generated.

The Benefits of a Halo Laser Treatment

Halo is a safe and effective way to address a wide range of skin concerns, with minimal downtime and long-lasting results. At the same time, the treatment is highly customizable. We personalize it based on each patient’s unique needs and goals. The Halo treatment is a versatile procedure that can help with a variety of skin conditions:

  • Sun damage: Sun damage can cause a variety of skin issues, including age spots, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone. The Halo treatment can target these issues, reducing the appearance of sun damage and leaving you with a brighter, more youthful complexion.
  • Fine lines and wrinkles: As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin fibers, which can cause fine lines and wrinkles to form. The Halo treatment can stimulate the production of these fibers, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance.
  • Scarring: Whether you have acne scars or other types of scars, the Halo treatment can help to reduce their appearance, leaving you with smoother, more even skin.
  • Uneven skin tone: If you have areas of hyperpigmentation or discoloration on your skin such as rosacea or melasma, the Halo treatment can help to even out your skin tone.

What is a BBL treatment?

BBL, or BroadBand Light, is another state-of-the-art skin treatment. It uses high-intensity light energy to target and improve a variety of skin concerns. At Atalo Aesthetics in Cincinnati, Ohio, we offer BBL as a safe and effective way to address signs of aging, sun damage, and even acne.

During a BBL treatment, a handheld device is used to deliver pulses of intense light energy to the skin. This energy penetrates the skin’s surface to target pigmentation, redness, and other signs of damage. The light energy is absorbed by the skin’s cells. This stimulates the body’s natural healing processes and promotes collagen production.

BBL is highly customizable, allowing us to tailor the treatment to each patient’s individual needs. It can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns. These include age spots, sun damage, rosacea, broken blood vessels, acne, and acne scars. The treatment can be performed on almost any area of the body. Common treatment areas are the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.

At Atalo Aesthetics, we use BBL to ensure that our patients receive the most effective and comfortable treatment possible. Our medical providers are highly trained in using the BBL device. They provide effective treatments for each patient based on their unique skin concerns and goals.

Can I combine Halo and BBL treatments?

Yes! Combining Halo and BBL treatments has become increasingly popular in recent years. The two treatments complement each other and achieve even more dramatic results when performed together. While each treatment is effective on its own, together they can address a wider range of skin concerns. This leads to more significant improvements in overall skin health and appearance.

Combining the two treatments is safe and effective, with minimal downtime and long-lasting results.

Many patients see improvements in the overall health and appearance of their skin after just one treatment. You may see continued improvements over time as collagen production is stimulated. By combining BBL and Halo treatments, our medical providers can provide personalized recommendations based on each patient’s unique needs and concerns, ensuring the best possible results.

What are the benefits of combining BBL with Halo?

Combining BBL with Halo treatments can provide a number of benefits, including:

  • Reduced discoloration: BBL can target brown spots and other areas of discoloration on the skin, while Halo can improve the overall tone and texture of the skin, resulting in a more even complexion.
  • Improved skin texture: Halo treatments can help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, while BBL can improve the texture and firmness of the skin.
  • Long-lasting results: Because both Halo and BBL treatments stimulate the production of collagen and elastin fibers, the anti-aging results of these treatments can last for several months or even years.
  • Minimal downtime: Both Halo and BBL treatments are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime, making them a convenient option for people with busy schedules.
