Do you know that half of all women experience painful intercourse due to menopause? And that’s one of many possible health problems that can develop when hormone levels drop. Treating those problems is why BioTE® is popular among menopausal women.
You can’t stop your skin from aging, but you don’t have to sit back and take it — not when you have options like quick and gentle treatment with the Halo™ laser. The team at Gynecologic Surgery and Menopause Options in New Lenox, Illinois are dedicated to helping women stay healthy and look as young as they feel. With customized treatment using the Halo, you can turn back the hands of time, diminish the signs of aging, and regain tight, vibrant, youthful skin.
The Halo laser is truly a unique aesthetic option for turning back the effect of time on your face. For starters, it’s a fractional laser, which means you get great results with faster healing.
But here’s the most exciting and innovative thing about Halo: It’s a hybrid that offers two types of skin treatments, ablative and nonablative. Most lasers operate on one wavelength, so they’re one or the other: ablative or nonablative treatment.
The Halo is equipped with two wavelengths, so both treatments can be delivered simultaneously. But if you don’t need both treatments, Dr. Garcini can customize your session to target your aesthetic needs by only using one.
Let’s break it down and give you the inside information about how it all works together to rejuvenate your skin.
By definition, lasers deliver their light energy in a single beam. The power of the beam and its wavelength differ, depending on the device and its therapeutic target, but it still produces results with a single beam.
Fractional lasers take that beam and divide it into many microbeams of light. As a result, tiny columns of skin are affected by the laser, leaving healthy skin between the treated areas. The normal skin that remains promotes healing, rebuilding and restoring your skin more quickly than when treatment is delivered with a typical laser.
The Halo can precisely remove your skin layer-by-layer, so your treatment can go as deep as needed to produce individualized results. As skin is removed, wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, and other imperfections are eliminated. Then as fresh skin regrows, your complexion is better toned, smooth, and glowing.
If you’re familiar with chemical skin peels, you may have heard about the long, uncomfortable recovery periods following skin resurfacing. You won’t have to worry about that following resurfacing with the Halo laser. Thanks to fractional technology, you’ll be back to work in a few days, and you can apply makeup within 24 hours.
A nonablative treatment doesn’t remove skin. Instead, the laser reaches below your skin, passing safely through the surface, then triggering collagen production in deeper tissues. Dr. Garcini can further customize this feature of the Halo to reach to the desired depth needed, depending on your specific skin problems.
Whether old skin at the surface is removed with Halo’s ablative option, or it naturally sheds over time, it’s replaced with new skin that’s rich in collagen thanks to Halo’s nonablative treatment. Your fresh skin is tighter, stronger, more resilient.
Halo is safe for all skin types, often producing remarkable results in one or two treatments. Here’s another benefit you may not expect: Treatment with Halo is so comfortable that you can undergo skin resurfacing using only a topical anesthetic.
Halo strengthens and softens your skin and fights the signs of aging by diminishing the appearance of:
