Collagen is a natural protein that gives our skin structure and volume. But as we age, our body makes less collagen, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. HALO laser treatment is a revolutionary way to stimulate collagen production – helping you look refreshed and rejuvenated again in no time.

Board-certified nurse practitioner and certified master injector Michelle Buchanan knows the importance of having access to the most advanced cosmetic technology possible, including our hybrid fractional laser. Call VIVIFY Med Spa now for a consultation in Tampa, FL, and find out how HALO laser treatment can help you look and feel younger.

When does collagen production slow down?

Collagen production slows down as we age due to biological changes in our bodies. Starting around the age of 30, collagen loss accelerates and continues throughout our lives. Unfortunately, factors like sun damage and smoking speed up this process and cause premature signs of aging.

Over-the-counter collagen creams and dietary supplements may help slow collagen loss but only treat surface issues. Some people prefer a more aggressive and longer-lasting approach – like HALO laser treatments.

What is HALO?

HALO is a hybrid fractional laser that combines the power of ablative and non-ablative technology. The laser energy produces incredible results with minimal downtime and discomfort.

HALO treatments activate our natural healing response, prompting it to produce collagen. Collagen firms and tightens skin from the inside out, smoothing out deep wrinkles and creases. This protein also reduces issues like hyperpigmentation and acne scars.

Additional benefits of HALO include:

  • Safe and gentle on all skin types
  • Minimal downtime and no significant discomfort
  • Noticeable results after just one treatment
  • Long-lasting improvements with multiple sessions

What happens during a HALO assessment?

VIVIFY Med Spa believes in tailoring each treatment to the individual. This is why we perform an assessment before recommending our hybrid fractional laser. Nurse practitioner Michelle Buchanan will listen to your concerns and evaluate your skin type, pigmentation, texture, and other factors before creating a custom plan.

How is HALO laser treatment performed?

Our team begins by applying a topical anesthetic, then directs the HALO laser device along your skin. Treatment lasts 30 – 60 minutes, based on the size of the area involved. Patients in Tampa, FL can easily schedule HALO around their busy lifestyles.

Your skin may appear red and swollen for a day or two afterward. Some peeling is expected, but it is a normal part of the process. ViVIFY Med Spa recommends protecting your skin with sunscreen and daily moisturizer both before and after treatment. Avoiding sun exposure is also critical for successful outcomes.

How long does it take to make new collagen?

It does take a little time for the body to produce new collagen. You should begin noticing results in as little as two weeks, but optimal benefits may not be evident until several months after HALO laser treatment. The number of sessions needed depends on your age and skin condition. However, results are long-lasting with proper follow-up sessions and skin care.

Increase your collagen production for smoother skin

Factors like age and sun damage do not have to impact your appearance. Hybrid fractional laser treatment can reverse unwanted signs of aging. Call VIVIFY Med Spa to learn about this technology and why so many people turn to board-certified nurse practitioner and certified master injector Michelle Buchanan. Our Tampa, FL team will be happy to answer all your questions about HALO.
