07 Jan Treat Your Sun Damage with Halo BBL
One of the biggest regrets many clients at RefinedMD has is all of that sun damage from their youth. You can’t go back in time, but you can reverse the lingering effects of sun damage with the Halo treatment. It’s a favorite of celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Beyoncé, and Scarlett Johansson. The revolutionary broadband light laser (BBL) therapy treatment is a combination of two laser types to offer maximal results with minimal downtime.
This “heavenly” device is the first fractional laser that makes use of both ablative and non-ablative tech. Ablative lasers are essential because they are akin to lawn aeration. They work by targeting micro pathways in the skin so that nearby areas aren’t harmed. Non-ablative lasers create tiny injuries in the skin to start the production of collagen and elastin. These are the natural properties in the skin that lessen as we age, but are in charge of skin looking dewy, plump, and young.
You can opt for an ablative laser, a non-ablative laser, or get the benefits of both in a single procedure with Halo. It’s also better for recovery because there’s only one timeframe of downtime, although that term might be a bit dramatic for Halo. Older technology like the original Fraxel lasers can demand up to a week of downtime for major healing. These old technologies are at the root of horror stories, such as when Samantha on Sex and the City had to wear a beekeeper-inspired hat because of her beauty treatment. Such serious downtime requirements are no longer the case, especially with Halo.
Halo treats both the dermis and epidermis with the hybrid laser. You can reverse sun damage, minimize brown spots, reduce pore size, and even improve overall skin texture. Halo is suitable for most skin tones; however melanin-rich skin might need extra skin prep with exceptional products and a lighter touch from the Halo operator. This is why it’s critical to only trust a Halo expert who specializes in treating all skin types.
