Yesterday I posted Part 1 of my experience with the Halo Laser by Sciton, performed by Dr. Mark Schwartz in NYC at his office and outpatient surgical facility at 79. E. 79th St. The Halo Laser is customizable. I opted for a medium to deep treatment. Please click here to learn more about Halo, the world's first hybrid fractional laser from its developers at Sciton.
Here is my Part 2, the follow up, with pictures of my treatment throughout the week and my final results:
|Day 2, the morning after, before makeup. |
It's working. Game on!
|Day 2 after makeup at work. No one noticed anything amiss.|
Dr. Schwartz provided me with an excellent post treatment cream;
Avene's Cicalfate. I've already purchased another tube.
|Day 3. More redness. My skin looks and feels like sandpaper|
I was still able to cover this with makeup. With my hair down
no one could see the sides of my face, where Dr. Schwartz
treated areas more deeply due to sun damage
8 Days Later and glowing! I l LITERALLY forgot
to use foundation. This is just a bit of self tanner and blush.
Probably the first time I hadn't used some form of coverage in 25 years!
Overall, I think I achieved all of the results that the Halo Laser by Sciton purports to do:
Halo wiped out years of sun damage, evened my skin tone, improved my texture, shrunk my pores and helped minimize fine lines. And the radiant glow??? It surpassed all of my expectations. I accepted compliments on my skin from friends and colleagues all week and of course told anyone who would listen what I had done.
In terms of downtime, there really was none to speak of. More good news??? My skin will continue to improve over time as the dermal rejuvenation phase kicks in. The results will last for years as long as I am vigilant about sunscreen.
Both Dr. Schwartz and Megan checked in with me several times for updates. If you are interested in learning more about the Halo Laser please click here to see Dr. Schwartz website for a full description of the treatment. If you are considering getting the Halo Glow, you could not be in better hands. The fee for a Halo Laser Treatment is $1500.
Just remember, you wear your face everyday...It's all a matter of your personal priorities. If you are contemplating getting this treatment, I would put this ahead of a few new frocks, that you will wear on occasion, in rotation with all the other things already hanging in your closet!
Food for thought...
