It's great that you are considering treatments to enhance your skin health and appearance.
As we have do not have the HALO in our clinic, I cannot pass comment on the treatment comparisons. FRAXEL has proven to be a gold standard in clinical laser treatments with fantastic results. The FRAXEL Dual has the ability to treat superficially as well as deep into the dermis. In our experience, treatments have shown a greater response in the skin by offering a full treatment on each of the settings rather than combining settings. In most cases, a series of possibly 3 treatments, 4 weeks apart offer the best results. However, this can vary client to client.
You will find recovery from the treatment between 5-7 days. This recovery is not something that will have you house bound. By Day 5, you will find the skin slightly rough or dry to touch and may have a flaky appearance. This is the skin rejuvenating post treatment and a gentle exfoliating can help buff away the dry skin.
Our protocol is to offer a complementary LED light treatment to our clients at Day 5, where we provide a gentle exfoliating facial to help cleanse the skin of old cells and the light therapy to help speed up the skin recovery, while plumping and hydrating the skin.
Complementary consultations are available in the clinic to determine the best treatment plan for your individual needs.
