Meredith understands that your appearance is more than just how you look - it's a vital part of your unique personality, charisma, and self-esteem. That's why our New Life Aesthetics team is pleased to offer you the very first hybrid laser therapy: the powerful yet gentle Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser.
This minimally invasive technology applies two different wavelengths to maximize your treatment's effectiveness without the risks, costs, and long recovery times of cosmetic surgery and previous generations of laser skin treatments.
Your wrinkles, pigment, loose skin, and acne scarring don't have to define you. Take your first step toward rediscovering the naturally beautiful and youthfully radiant you by calling our team at New Life Aesthetics today (919) 521-8282, or contact us online.
The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser by Sciton™ is one of today's most innovative skincare technologies available. What places the Halo Laser above lesser skincare treatments? Its ingenious use of both ablative and non-ablative technology.
First, the ablative laser targets microscopic pathways in your skin without affecting surrounding areas. Then, the non-ablative laser creates tiny thermal openings in your skin, stimulating new collagen and elastin production. These building blocks of fresh and radiant skin help to tighten wrinkles and shrink pores, encouraging the growth of supple skin over sun-damaged, acne-scarred, or prematurely aged cells.
Unlike chemical peels, the Halo Laser is also supported by digital technology for uniformity and consistency. The integrated thermometer measures the heat and thermal impact on your skin every moment of the treatment and automatically adjusts to keep skin safe throughout. Additionally, cooling is integrated into the Halo handpiece to ensure safe, comfortable and effective impact on your skin.
With unique powerful engineering, the transformative Halo Laser offers all of the benefits of more invasive procedures via several brief treatments and brief recovery times. The result is smooth, volumized, naturally radiant skin - what our happy clients love to call "the Halo Glow."
The Halo Hybrid Laser can successfully treat:
First, you'll enjoy an in-depth consultation with Meredith to discuss your skin type, your current skin condition, other medical conditions, any medications you're taking, your expectations, and concerns. You won't be rushed - Meredith wants to make sure you're comfortable and confident about your treatment options.
With this information, you and Meredith will create a customized treatment plan based on your needs and expectations. This first step is crucial for getting the results you desire and minimizing the chances of any negative side effects.
On the day of your treatment, you'll arrive about an hour prior to your treatment. Meredith will apply a very strong numbing cream that will penetrate the skin of the treatment area and make the treatment very tolerable. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses.
Assisted by the computer software Visia 3D Skin Analysis to identify hard-to-see skin blemishes, Meredith will then pass a handpiece over your treatment area numerous times to ensure that the light energy is directed evenly. You may briefly feel a warming sensation or a slight snap (like a small rubber band) on your skin as the light passes over it; this experience is typically very mild and most patients tolerate it easily.
Your treatment time may take as little as 30 minutes or up to an hour and a half, depending on the area being treated and the severity of your skin condition. There is virtually no downtime after this gentle and non-surgical facial treatment.
Meredith will be happy to discuss these details and answer any questions before you receive treatment.
Immediately after your treatment, it's best to avoid sun exposure unless it's absolutely necessary - especially for the first 24 hours. It's also best to avoid strenuous activity for the rest of the day. In most cases though, you can apply cosmetics, return to work, and resume most of your activities immediately.
About 24 hours after your treatment, your skin will begin peeling. This is a normal part of the skin regeneration process. When your skin starts peeling, you can resume your normal activities, though it's very important to wear sunscreen. You will see improvements in your skin tone and texture after your skin is done peeling, which typically takes about one week.
Following Meredith's aftercare instructions is absolutely crucial for best results.
This innovative skincare treatment offers a wealth of benefits that outdated, less sophisticated methods simply can't live up to. They include:
Generally, all patients with cosmetic skin concerns will gain satisfying results from the Halo Hybrid. However, some medical conditions or life stages may make potential patients less than excellent candidates.
During your consultation, be sure to discuss any medical conditions or medications you are taking that might sensitize you to light, affect wound healing, or interrupt blood clotting. Be sure to tell Meredith if you've taken Accutane during the past year, as this can affect your Halo Hybrid candidacy.
You will see initial results between 5-7 days after your treatment, which will then continue improving. Over the next 2-3 months, you'll enjoy noticeably reduced discoloration, smoothing of fine lines and wrinkles, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity, and a healthy, radiant glow. Many patients report their treatments giving them long-lasting results - sometimes, for years. Taking good care of your skin, especially using sunscreen, will help it retain its tightness and youthful appearance.
Most patients need only one treatment, but depending on the condition of your skin and how your body responds, you may require several sessions. Future touch-up treatments can help keep your skin looking soft, silky, and beautifully contoured.
As with any medical procedure, treatment results will vary from patient to patient depending on age, genetics, general health, condition severity, follow-up care, and environmental factors. Consult Meredith before embarking on your treatment journey.
Halo Hybrid skin therapy may cause these mild side effects:
Follow Meredith's instructions exactly until your skin is completely healed (which typically takes one week). Your face may need more time to heal than other treatment areas.
Your skin treatment cost will vary depending on your desired treatment area, your current medical situation, and the number of sessions required. During your consultation, Meredith will create a customized treatment plan and review, which will include the cost.
Your skin is your closest friend. As your body's most important organ and a reflection of your inner beauty, it deserves the best care available. Halo Hybrid Laser is the world's first and only dual-action light therapy that empowers your self-esteem and quality of life.
