Our skin goes through a lot over a lifetime. From adolescent acne that can follow us into our adult years to age-related concerns and photodamage, our skin tends to be the first sign of a life well-lived, and unfortunately, some of those signs aren’t thrilling to live with. However, at MD Beauty Labs in West Palm Beach, FL, we know that one of the best ways to perfect your skin’s appearance is with Halo+BBL treatments.
What Is Halo+BBL?
Why Does This Combo Treatment Work?
The key to this treatment is the powerful combination of two different laser and light treatments. Halo is a hybrid laser that uses microscopic ablative and non-ablative laser energy to address textural problems and deeper skin concerns, such as lesions and wrinkles. BBL is a treatment that utilizes broadband light wavelengths to correct superficial concerns, particularly pigment and acne treatment.
The reason this combo treatment works so well is that it encourages more cellular turnover in every level of the skin, which will more quickly even out the skin tone and correct both textural and pigmentation concerns. On a deeper level, the thermal energy of the Halo laser stimulates the body’s natural regenerative response, particularly the stimulation of proteins like collagen and elastin, which help restore a tighter, more supple skin texture.
What Can This Treat?
Both Halo hybrid laser and BBL treatments can correct a variety of skin concerns for people of any age, including:
- Dry or rough skin
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Skin laxity
- Acne and acne scarring
- Dull skin tone
- Enlarged pores
This treatment can be used on virtually all areas of the face, including the forehead, cheeks, jaw, nose, chin, and neck. The Halo laser can also be used on the chest, arms, hands, and legs, while the BBL treatment can be used on the chest, arms, and legs as well. Ultimately, this means that this combo treatment is flexible enough to be an ideal treatment for virtually all of your skin-related concerns.
What Are the Benefits?
One of the biggest benefits of this treatment is the amount of flexibility the combo treatment affords, but there are plenty of other benefits patients might find attractive, such as:
- Personalized treatment to fit your needs
- Anti-aging and rejuvenating
- Helps manage active acne
- Corrects scarring and dynamic age-related concerns
- Produces youthful glow
Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Expect From This Treatment?
The most important thing you should expect from this treatment is customization. This treatment meets your exact needs. The personalization of your treatment starts from your first consultation, where we examine your skin conditions and discuss your aesthetic goals. This treatment aims to restore the skin to a younger and more healthy state, so we are sure to take your skincare habits and routines into consideration while we plan your treatment.
During your treatment appointments, you can expect your treatment to take about 45 to 60 minutes to complete. Naturally, if you are only treating a few areas of the skin, your appointments may be shorter.
Will This Treatment Hurt?
No, this treatment should not cause pain! Because this combo treatment will be using a laser, we generally apply a topical numbing cream about 30 minutes before your treatment begins so that you are comfortable during the treatment. Even though the hybrid Halo treatment uses an ablative laser, most patients only feel a tingling sensation during the treatment. Some patients also like to take over the counter pain relievers about an hour before their appointment.
What Are Your Preparation and Aftercare Instructions?
In general, laser treatments involve more preparation than other types of treatment due to the energy exposure to your skin. For this treatment, you will need to prepare for your treatment by staying out of sunlight and tanning beds for at least two weeks before your treatment. You will also need to stop using retinoids or other active skin products, including glycolic acid, for at least three days before your treatment.
After your treatment, you must protect your skin by wearing SPF 40 or higher and avoid direct sunlight, tanning beds, and self-tanning products. You will also need to avoid excessive sweating, heat, and water, including saunas and hot tubs, for at least one week after your treatment.
How Many Treatments Will You Need?
The vast majority of patients will be able to enjoy results within as little as one or two treatments, although those who have more severe skin conditions may need three or more treatments. We will help you determine the number of treatments you will need to achieve your aesthetic goals.
Are the Results Permanent?
The results of this combo treatment are known to be long-lasting, with many results for superficial scarring and pigmentation lasting several months and years at a time. For age-related concerns like fine lines and wrinkles, the results of this treatment will be drastic but are not considered permanent.
Who Is This Treatment Right For?
This treatment is ideal for any adult who wants to improve the glow, tone, and texture of their skin. Ideally, candidates should not be currently breastfeeding or pregnant and must not have active skin rashes, acne, or cold sores at the time of their appointments.
