Discover the Art of Skin Rejuvenation
Your Guide to the Most Cutting-Edge Laser Skin Treatments

The evolution of aesthetic lasers has forever revolutionized facial skin rejuvenation. Laser skin treatments are often considered a happy medium between the transient improvements of a topical facial and the extensive downtime and risk of surgery. With non-invasive and minimally invasive technologies, targeted and precise treatments, the ability to stimulate collagen production, customizable device settings and long-lasting results, it’s no wonder laser skin treatments are taking the aesthetic world by storm.

The question is, with so many options available, how do you know which laser skin treatment is right for you? That’s where the skin rejuvenation experts of Adoro Medical Spa come in! We are passionate about providing exceptional care and the highest level of results — which is why we’ve invested in the leading aesthetic lasers to both safely and effectively deliver a wide range of complexion improvements.

Depending on your unique needs and anti-aging goals, you may be an ideal candidate for any of the following laser skin treatments:

Halo® laser skin resurfacing

This powerful hybrid fractional laser is known for delivering a remarkable glow to the overall appearance of skin. The world-famous Halo laser is a versatile treatment option for all skin types, addressing a wide range of skin concerns, including facial wrinkles, fine lines, sun damage, uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, acne scars and enlarged pores. By combining two types of laser wavelengths — ablative and non-ablative — in a single device, a Halo treatment can target both superficial and deeper levels of skin, providing remarkable results with minimal downtime. As the Halo laser creates small thermal injuries in the skin, it stimulates new collagen growth, which leads to gradual ongoing improvements. Plus, Halo can reveal optimal results in a shorter amount of time compared to traditional ablative lasers. With Halo laser skin resurfacing, you can achieve glowing, younger-looking skin in just one to two treatments with a few days to a week of downtime, depending on the depth of your treatment and your individual healing response.

IPL and BBL® photofacial

Advanced light-based skin rejuvenation is a great option for those looking for a gentler treatment with less downtime. IPL (intense pulsed light) and BBL (broadband light) photofacials are both non-invasive light-based treatments used to address various skin concerns, from sun damage to common signs of aging. While similar in some ways, IPL and BBL do have some differences to take into consideration:

IPL photofacial

  • How it works: IPL delivers a single, focused beam of light to the skin to target and treat specific conditions. Once the light energy is absorbed by your targeted areas, such as pigment or blood vessels, it is then converted into heat, which helps destroy unwanted tissue and stimulate collagen remodeling.
  • Skin concerns addressed: IPL photofacial is commonly used to treat rosacea and redness, remove sunspots and diminish age spots and freckles with little to no downtime.
  • Treatment time: Multiple sessions are often recommended for achieving your best results, with each session lasting about 20-30 minutes.

BBL photofacial

  • How it works: BBL is the most advanced and effective form of IPL photofacial. Using a broad spectrum of light wavelengths, BBL can more precisely target specific concerns than IPL. BBL works by delivering broadband light through the skin without breaking its surface, prompting new collagen growth and improving common pigmentation issues.
  • Skin concerns addressed: BBL photofacial is the gold standard for correcting pigmentation irregularities, including sunspots, freckles, redness and rosacea, broken capillaries, fine lines and age spots. With little to no downtime, BBL can brighten skin and reveal a younger-looking, more evenly toned complexion.
  • Treatment time: For optimal results, we recommend undergoing multiple photofacial sessions, with each lasting about 15-30 minutes.

Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing

If you have medium to deep wrinkling and desire youthful, smooth skin without surgery, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing may be the right treatment for you. Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing combines the effectiveness of traditional carbon dioxide lasers with new fractionated laser technology to improve skin texture, tone and overall appearance. Fractional CO2 lasers work by penetrating the skin with tiny thermal channels, triggering collagen remodeling to help tighten neck, facial and décolleté skin as well as reduce wrinkles, fine lines, acne scars, age spots and more. Since fractional CO2 lasers only resurface a portion of the skin, healing time is cut in half — with about five to seven days of downtime. In most cases, a series of two to three sessions is recommended, each typically taking between 30 and 60 minutes.

The severity of your wrinkles, your skin type and your individual goals will all come into play when deciding on the best laser skin treatment to reduce the appearance of your wrinkles. Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is a highly effective option for reducing the appearance of moderate to severe wrinkles. Though a more aggressive option with longer downtime, fractional CO2 is great for promoting collagen production, tightening skin and improving overall texture and tone. Halo can also reduce the depth and severity of wrinkles over time as your skin’s collagen levels increase and the healing process progresses. If your wrinkles are less severe, light-based treatments like IPL or BBL photofacial can help treat mild cases of facial wrinkles as well as improve skin texture.

The right choice of laser skin treatment for your acne scars will depend on the type and severity of your scars as well as your skin type and individual preferences. Fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing and Halo laser treatment, however, are definitely top contenders. Using a high-intensity laser beam to remove thin layers of skin and stimulate collagen production, fractional CO2 is effective for treating deep acne scars as well as improving overall skin texture and appearance. The Halo laser offers settings to specifically target and reduce the appearance of scar tissue anywhere on the face or body. With either laser, you can enjoy less noticeable acne scars and a smoother skin texture.

If you’re wondering how to get rid of acne, IPL/BBL photofacials are effective laser acne treatments that may be right for you. IPL and BBL use intense pulses of light to reduce bacteria and sebum in the skin, helping to dry up blemishes and prevent future breakouts. Best of all, photofacials are non-invasive, so there’s no downtime. We recommend a series of IPL or BBL photofacials combined with medical-grade skin care products to see optimal acne-fighting results.

Any of our lasers are effective options for reducing the appearance of sunspots, so the best one for you will depend on the severity of your sunspots as well as your skin type and downtime preferences. IPL and BBL photofacials use non-invasive high-energy light to target and break down excess melanin, which is responsible for the pigmentation in sunspots, without downtime. With multiple sessions, you can gradually lighten and remove sunspots. With more downtime but fewer treatment sessions, the Halo hybrid fractional laser uses its energy to target the excess pigmentation in sunspots. By breaking down the pigment, Halo promotes the body’s natural healing process to remove the targeted cells. With a bit more healing time required, fractional CO2 laser skin resurfacing is another effective option for sunspot removal. By creating tiny, controlled injuries in the skin, fractional CO2 lasers stimulate your body’s natural healing response and promote the shedding of damaged skin cells, including sunspots.
