Your face is can immediately give away your age. Fine lines, wrinkles, and discoloration can even leave you looking much older than you are. There are many methods of facial rejuvenation, but Broadband Light Therapy and Halo laser therapy are two of the most effective treatments offered at Marcus Medical Spa.

While both treatments help you achieve a similar goal, one may be better suited for you than the other. Exploring both treatments with Dr. Marcus can help you arrive at a treatment that suits your skin type and helps you achieve the best possible result.

What is Halo?

The Halo laser treatment can help you reduce the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, uneven texture, and discoloration.

The laser emits both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. Ablative means surgically removed. Non-ablative wavelengths treat the deep layers of skin to promote fresh tissue production. These wavelengths treat discoloration and scarring.

The ablative wavelength targets the surface of your skin to treat wrinkles and sun damage. Both the ablative and non-ablative wavelengths are customized to fit your unique skin needs and the areas that require rejuvenation.

What is Broadband Light?

Broadband Light, also known as BBL, utilizes pulsed light to treat sun spots, freckles, rosacea, and skin laxity. The bursts of light will heat the top layers of your skin. The heat stimulates collagen growth to reduce the appearance of sun spots, age spots, and other skin discolorations.

Blood vessels that cause red facial skin or visible veins can be targeted with BBL. The heat causes the tiny capillaries to collapse and pull away from the surface of the skin. The redness will subside to produce a more even, attractive look to your skin tone.

Halo and BBL: Which is right for me?

The Halo and BBL treatments both can improve the look and feel of your skin – so which one is best?

Halo is more specific and can be used to treat scars, wrinkles, and smaller areas of hyperpigmentation. The non-ablative wavelengths can also be used to target deeper layers of skin.

BBL uses a broader beam of light that can be used to treat larger areas at once. The light beams target areas of redness and excess melanin, making it ideal for those who have rosacea, freckles, or other larger areas of discoloration.

Recovery After Halo and BBL

After Halo laser treatment at Marcus Medical Spa in Los Angeles, your skin may tingle or burn slightly. It may feel like a mild sunburn, but this sensation dissipates after one or two days. Recovery may take longer depending on the depth and intensity of your treatment. Wear sunscreen to protect your skin and wear a hat for added protection while exposed to the sun – which you should completely avoid during healing. You will begin to notice smoother skin and more even coloring after approximately two weeks.

Similar to the Halo treatment, you may experience some redness or slight discomfort in the treated areas after BBL. You will start to see results after a few days, but the collagen production will continue to improve the look of your skin for several weeks following treatment.

Can Halo and BBL be combined?

Many people think they have to choose between Halo or BBL treatment, but they can be combined to maximize results. A combination of these two laser treatments may be the answer to your skin issues.

The Halo laser will work to treat the deep layers of tissue and jumpstart collagen production while simultaneously softening wrinkles and scarring on the surface. Meanwhile the BBL treatment will target large areas of discoloration and redness.

Combining the two treatments may result in a slightly longer recovery time. During your consultation Dr. Marcus will evaluate your specific needs and develop a plan of action to treat your areas of concern. Every form of skin rejuvenation we offer at our Los Angeles skincare spa offers certain benefits. Our knowledgeable physician will work with you to create a customized skin rejuvenation treatment to match your needs.
