Halo Laser Treatment at Dr. Kovak Cosmetics
 I recently had my first trip to see   Dr. Kovak   at his Oakbrook location and I am so happy with the results! The office is welcoming, comfortable, relaxing, and the staff is amazing! I signed up to try the   Halo laser treatment   which for me is great as I have a TON of freckles and some brown spots thanks to my Irish skin ;)  First, I filled out a bunch of paper work for good measure and then went onto get consulted by Dr. Kovak just to make sure I was a good fit for this procedure. After he decided that I would be a good client for this, numbing cream was applied and I had to let that sit for about 45 minutes before the laser treatment.

 45 minutes or so later here we are in the room to start the laser! At this point I am a bit nervous as I have heard from people that have received laser treatments from other places in the past that it can be painful. But the good news is, I can't feel my face at all right now so that is promising to avoid any pain!  Dr. Kovak starts the treatment on my face making sure that I don't want any numbing shots and with declining them we move forward. You guys, I literally felt NOTHING! No pain, no stinging or anything through the short 15-20 minute process.

 Although I couldn't feel anything my fair light skin is clearly getting red from the effect of the laser which is expected.

 About 10 minutes after the treatment I started to feel a lot of heat and burning as they told me I would once the numbing cream starts to wear off so the staff gave me an ice pack to ease the sting.  For the next 5 days I had major dryness which turned into flaking and peeling which sounds gross, but it revealed amazing glowing skin, to the point where I wouldn't even need to apply make up if I didn't want to. The laser gave me baby faced airbrushed skin, took of some freckling and brown spots off,  but left enough of my freckles so that I still looked like "me".  I would highly recommend this treatment to anyone with these skin concerns and if you are in the Chicagoland area, Dr. Kovak is your go-to guy!

                     About the Halo by Sciton Laser Treatment

Everyone has different needs for their unique skin. As a customizable treatment, Halo fits perfectly into your busy lifestyle. Need to be back to work tomorrow? A light treatment creates smooth, vibrant skin that’s ready for makeup the very next day. Want to WOW them? A more intense treatment will give your skin a youthful glow with just a few days of downtime.

What makes Halo special

In the past, you had to choose between a procedure that offered really great results but required a lengthy recovery, or a procedure that had a fast recovery but marginal results. With Halo, you get the best of both worlds: beautiful results with minimal downtime. Halo combines deep dermal revitalization with epidermal renewal for a combined synergistic effect you can’t get with any other treatment.

Benefits of Halo

Halo isn’t harsh like many other treatments can be, and our patients experience minimal discomfort. Skin damage that you can and can’t see is addressed by Halo’s combined dermal revitalization and epidermal renewal. Even after your initial treatment, your skin’s tone and texture will continue to improve, as Halo triggers the “dermal regeneration phase.”

Halo precisely targets years of damage to your skin and addresses the appearance of:

  • Discoloration
  • Sun damage
  • Visible signs of aging
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture
  • Appearance of fine lines
  • Appearance of scars
