01 Apr What Exactly Can Laser Treatments Fix?
You’ve probably heard of laser skin treatments from fractional resurfacing for a serious revitalization to the latest Halo treatment that provides a hybrid approach with minimal downtime. But what exactly do laser treatments address, and which one is best for you? RefinedMD offers complimentary consultations for all esthetic treatments so you can learn more about laser treatments including Halo, LaseMD, Clear + Brilliant, and much more.
Clear + Brilliant is a laser system that can minimize the look of fine lines, reduce pore size, and improve skin texture and tone. It’s completely non-invasive, and you’ll notice big results in a single treatment lasting just 15 – 30 minutes. There’s little to no downtime with Clear + Brilliant, which means you can squeeze in a treatment during your lunch break and immediately go about your day looking instantly younger and fresher. This system creates millions of tiny treatment “zones” in the upper skin layers, helping to replace damaged skin with tissue that looks younger and healthier.
LaseMD for Beautiful Skin
LaseMD is another gentle treatment that is effective and can be used on all types of skin. It’s a fast procedure that can take from 6 – 20 minutes depending on the treatment site and features a minimal downtime with no anesthesia. LaseMD is designed for clients who are looking for effective non-ablative treatments that really work. Like Clear + Brilliant, it creates micro-channels in the skin that are invisible to the naked eye. This non-ablative laser can treat a variety of skin issues including acne and light scarring, fine lines, lax skin, sun damage including melasma, and uneven skin tone and texture.
Both Clear + Brilliant and LaseMD are considered the gentlest of laser treatments. You might notice a mild redness immediately after treatment, similar to a mild sunburn, but this subsides quickly within a day or two. Since these lasers are so gentle, they aren’t always the best choice for clients looking for a more aggressive treatment or to treat particularly stubborn issues. When this is the case, Halo might be the best approach—or you can even combine Halo with LaseMD or Clear + Brilliant.
Halo for a Heavenly Touch
Halo is the world’s very first hybrid fractional laser, delivering non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single treatment. This means you get all the benefits of the non-ablative lasers (such as Clear + Brilliant or LaseMD) with the added benefit of an ablative wavelength. A dual wavelength provides the best results with a very minimal downtime (although some clients do like to set aside a day or two for healing before jumping back into their daily activities).
What makes Halo unique beyond its hybrid approach is that it addresses skin issues you can see and those you can’t. You can use Halo to treat all types of hyperpigmentation including brown spots and red spots, sun damage, and discoloration. As you can see, Halo is a bit more aggressive than strictly non-ablative lasers, but the results are often deemed more dramatic by clients. Halo offers fractional resurfacing, which delivers laser light to the lower layers of the skin where sun damage has already occurred and will rise to the surface eventually. However, treating those deeper layers of damage in tandem with top, visible layers will help you stay ahead of the anti-aging game.
