If your skin doesn't look as young as you feel, you don't have to settle for dull or uneven skin tone. There are ways to restore that youthful glow and get your confidence back. Sunspots and fine lines are a natural part of aging and the result of exposure to the sun, but there are painless and affordable treatments that will help you achieve a more even skin tone. The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser is one popular treatment that is helping patients reclaim their youth and get ready to put their best face forward this summer.

Causes of Uneven Facial Skin Tone

Even if you have spent your whole life diligently following a skincare routine that involved plenty of moisturizer and sunscreen, simply growing older can be enough to cause uneven skin tone. If you weren't always protecting yourself from the sun, you might be experiencing more prominent signs of sun spots and fine lines. While the appearance of sunspots doesn't affect your health, it can eat away at your confidence. For those who want to feel better when they look in the mirror and more confident in professional and social situations, there are solutions.

The Halo Treatment

The Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser in Oakville is especially effective because it provides a fully customized treatment. This is not a one-size-fits-all approach to skin care. Each patient will be evaluated and the laser will be programmed to penetrate to a specific depth to quickly eliminate years of damage. This precision treatment targets skin damage, helps create a more even skin tone, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and reduces pore size, which is essential to achieving that healthy glow.

Depending on the amount of skin damage and the ultimate goal, patients can choose between a light treatment that doesn't require any downtime or a more intense treatment that will require some extra aftercare. Because Halo is a totally customizable treatment, patients can work with their clinician to create a treatment plan that fits their schedule. For example, if you want maximum results, but can't take time off work, you might opt for multiple lighter treatments as opposed to one intense session.

One the day of your treatment, the clinician will apply topical anesthetic to prepare your skin. After an hour, you will be ready for the Halo Laser. During treatment, the laser will be rolled over the treatment area and automatically alert the clinician when the treatment has been completed. Cooling technology helps to keep you skin cool and comfortable although some patients will continue to experience a warm feeling up to 30 minutes after treatment. 

In the days following the treatment, you will begin to see results. Typically, patients experience light redness and minimal swelling. During this period it is a good idea to avoid exercise, saunas and other activities that may irritate your skin. After 24 hours, you can return to your normal activities and in 2-3 days, you will begin to experience noticeable results. After about 2-3 weeks, you will notice the biggest improvements and these will last for years to comas as long as your continue to protect your skin.

Skin and laser technology means that you don't have to live with uneven facial skin tone or undergo painful treatments. The Halo Laser is specially designed to precisely penetrate damaged areas and directly address your personal problems areas. With just one safe and affordable treatment, you can regain that youthful glow, even out your skin and reduce wrinkles. Summer is right around the corner, which makes it the perfect time to treat yourself to Halo Laser Skin Treatment.
