16 Feb Why HALO is Topping Every Must-Have List for 2021
The Halo laser is a hybrid treatment that uses both an ablative and non-ablative laser at the same time to identify “control zones.” This allows the energy to access the perfect depth of skin to kick-start collagen production and improve skin tone and texture. It’s a 2-in-1 treatment and a favorite of clients at RefinedMD. But you don’t have to take our word for it—HALO is being included in the top of every must-have beauty treatment list this year. Let’s take a look at exactly why this laser is leaving all the others in the dust.
HALO was included in a list of plastic surgeon’s predictions for the top treatments of 2021. According to the report, which was published in New Beauty, HALO is trending because clients have become much more knowledgeable and informed. They know what works, they know what treatments are backed by science, and they simply know that HALO works while offering little to no downtime. Getting gorgeous results without having to avoid Zoom calls for a few days is a must for our busy lives.
HALO for Hyperpigmentation
HALO was also included in a list of the best methods for treating hyperpigmentation, but not just any hyperpigmentation—it’s the recommended laser for getting rid of very stubborn discoloration. You’re going to want a fractional laser to handle this task, and, of course, HALO is included in the list of options. HALO works by creating tiny injuries in the skin, which starts the coveted collagen production. As the skin heals, discoloration fades away because younger-looking skin rises to the surface.
There are other fractional lasers that also work, but they are much more aggressive than HALO and not always in a good way. These lasers can require serious downtime, sometimes up to two weeks. That’s perfectly fine for some people, but in an age where we’re all expected to be Zoom-ing away, it’s not realistic for many. Plus, a lot of people simply don’t want the hassle of caring for a seriously peeling or angry face. Once again, HALO’s ability to be an effective treatment with little downtime makes it a win.
Show Off Your HALO Results this Summer
HALO was included in a “Radiant-Skin Rule Book” because it excels at treating sun-damaged skin. There are so many different lasers on the market that it can be overwhelming to try and decode which one is best for your unique needs (by the way, that’s where our consultations come in handy!). Sun damage is a big concern for many, especially since most of us didn’t have it as a top priority when we were kids. According to this rule book, HALO and BBL are the two top lasers to reduce and even eliminate sun damage signs from the skin. This can include brown spots, freckles, and even blood vessels.
However, HALO isn’t just or battling the summer months. It also makes the list of the five treatments New Beauty editors get every winter. It was the pick by Executive Managing Editor Liz Ritter, who says she’s chronically red and that when winter arrives the problem gets even worse. Ritter says, “I LOVE the HALO laser” and notes that results last for up to three months. She recommends getting it right after UV exposure as well in order to tackle discoloration before it starts.
HALO: A Treatment You’ll Want To Try
Now that you’ve seen just how amazing HALO is, you probably can’t wait to try it out for yourself. Just be careful though, because it makes one more list—the list of treatments dermatologists say you should never buy on Groupon. According to experts, it’s highly risky to purchase a steep discount on a third-party site for any treatment that could scar or burn. That will not be the case if you get HALO from a professional, but there’s no guarantee your so-called HALO treatment from an unreputable place will be safe or give you the results you want.
You can trust RefinedMD for safe and effective HALO treatments year-round. Many clients schedule routine treatments throughout the year to sustain their results and to pamper themselves through the changing seasons.
