Get Your Glow Back

Over the years, cumulative sun exposure and environmental abuse from smoking and pollution will accelerate the natural aging process, causing the skin to lose its youthful glow. Today there is no reason to live with dull, lackluster skin with the numerous safe and effective treatment options available.

New York City plastic surgeon Dr. Mark H. Schwartz was one of the first cosmetic doctors in the tri-state area to offer the revolutionary Halo Hybrid Laser by Sciton. The Halo system uses fractionated technology that is customized to improve each patient’s unique concerns by sending energy to the precise depth where skin aging occurs. Fine lines, uneven tone, rough texture, enlarged pores and lack of radiance can all be improved with Halo, and Dr. Schwartz will customize the treatments to fit each patient’s lifestyle. Those looking to avoid downtime can opt for 2 or more lighter treatments, while anyone who can spare 3-5 days can choose to have one or two more intensive treatments to achieve more dramatic and visible skin improvements.

The unique Halo technology was developed to improve a wide array of skin concerns because of its dual action. This hybrid laser simultaneously targets the deeper layers of the skin to prompt collagen production and reduce wrinkles, while it rejuvenates the uppermost layers to improve skin texture and radiance.

The skin is numbed with a topical cream prior to each 20- to 30-minute treatment, and most patients report a warm, prickly sensation. The skin will feel warm for 15 to 30 minutes (or more, depending on the intensity of the treatment) afterward, but you can resume your normal activities immediately. Dr. Mark H. Schwartz has developed an effective aftercare program following Halo treatment to ensure optimal results that includes sun protection and a gentle emollient to restore the skin’s barrier. Your skin will develop a bronzed appearance over the first few days after treatment and then the outer layers will begin to flake off. Fresh, radiant skin will be revealed after several days, depending on the intensity of the Halo procedure. Most people see improvement in pigmentation, tone and texture, as well as brightness within two to three weeks. The regeneration Halo prompts deep within the skin continues to improve over the course of several months.
