The face is one of the first parts of the body to show signs of aging. Luckily, if you want to rejuvenate your skin, there are plenty of nonsurgical solutions to consider. Halo™ and Contour TRL™ laser skin tightening are among the most popular options with our Lexington, KY, patients. Laser skin tightening can help you turn back the clock and look like a younger version of yourself.
Laser skin tightening is also an excellent way to improve skin tone and texture. Here are a few common questions and answers about the treatment that may help you decide whether to add it to your anti-aging routine.
What is Halo laser skin rejuvenation?
The Halo laser system is a fractional laser treatment. It uses tiny microbeams of laser energy to penetrate the deeper layers of the skin. This process stimulates the skin’s natural healing processes, which help to repair damaged areas. Halo lasers can treat several common issues, including:
- Sun damage
- Fine lines
- Skin laxity
- Acne scars
- Uneven texture
The sensation of the treatment itself is often compared to a rubber band snapping against your skin. However, our providers always apply a numbing cream to your treatment area beforehand to make sure your procedure is as comfortable as possible. Recovery typically takes around 5 to 7 days, but most patients can return to their daily activities after about 24 hours.
Halo is unique because it is the world’s first tunable hybrid fractional laser device. It utilizes both ablative and non-ablative lasers. This combination of lasers means you can improve skin tone, texture, and laxity in a single treatment. By stimulating collagen production, Halo smooths and tightens skin to fight the signs of aging. And since Halo harnesses the power of these two different lasers, it creates transformative results with half the usual downtime.
With Halo, each treatment is customized to meet a particular patient’s needs.
What is Contour TRL™ laser skin rejuvenation?
Contour TRL™ (tunable resurfacing laser) is an advanced fractional laser technology used for skin resurfacing. It allows practitioners to precisely control the depth of treatment, making it customizable for different skin types and concerns. By delivering laser energy in a controlled manner, it removes damaged skin layers and stimulates the production of new, healthier skin cells.
The Contour TRL™ laser can address various skin issues, including:
- Wrinkles and Fine Lines
- Uneven Skin Tone and Texture
- Lax skin
The practitioner can adjust the treatment’s depth and intensity, allowing for both superficial and deeper skin rejuvenation. This flexibility enables a personalized approach based on individual skin concerns and desired outcomes.
Are there other options for skin tightening?
Yes, we offer numerous options for treating lax skin. During a one-on-one consultation, our providers can help you find the right treatment or combination of treatments to treat your skin concerns. Some options include:
Do other anti-aging treatments pair well with laser skin tightening?
These treatments effectively complement several other cosmetic treatments. We often combine laser skin tightening and BBL™ to create a comprehensive skin rejuvenation plan. BBL is a type of intense pulsed light (IPL) that penetrates the skin to help improve skin tone and discoloration. When added to your laser skin tightening routine, it minimizes wrinkles, lightens pigmentation spots, and reveals more youthful, firmer skin.
