Before and After: my Halo Laser Treatment Results!

While it’s a little embarrassing to reveal what my complexion looked like before, the results are TOO GOOD to not to share. Here are the before-and-after Visia Imager photos from my Halo Resurfacing. (no foundation/concealer, moisturizer, or anything on the skin in either pic). I’ve been meaning to share these for a while, I am SO happy with my results!

What is Halo? Halo laser is the first of it’s kind: a hybrid (ablative and non-ablative) fractionated laser. Translation: 2 different wavelengths of laser fire off at the exact same time. Down-time is a fraction of any other fractionated laser out there-  (you can wear makeup out the door) – and the results are exponentially better from my perspective. It’s almost like having double the treatment with amazingly little social downtime, if any.

If you are on the fence about this procedure, I would urge you to go for it.

My Results: a reduction of pore size, almost no breakouts anymore, reduction in discoloration and hyperpigmentation, a tightening of the skin, improvement in texture and a noticeable glow or luminosity… probably why they called it Halo.My before and after: 6 months after 2 Halo Laser Resurfacing Treatments at Erickson Dermatology in Chicago My before and after: 6 months after 2 Halo Laser Resurfacing Treatments at Erickson Dermatology in Chicago. Side note: That’s a little biopsy site on my upper cheek, I had it taken after my Halo Treatments.

My Plan: Moving forward, I plan to get a Halo once a year to maintain- now that my skin is so improved, I’m spoiled!

Is the MAN keeping you down?? Customize your x15 MAC Pro Palette

Don’t let someone tell you how to organize your shadows… You are the ARTIIIIST, after all!

BEFORE: BORING and limited shadow storage ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz.....

BEFORE: BORING and limited shadow storage
ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzzz…..

To fit more fabulous shadows onto my Pro x15 palette, I wedged a small flat head screwdriver through one of the empty shadow spaces, and underneath the top plastic piece. I pried it up just enough so I could grip it with my hand…

Go Home, extra plastic grid-thing!
(Who even invited him???)

Be careful here, if you give it too much muscle, it will snap and could fly across the room- possibly injuring an innocent bystander (or you!). Slowly pull one end up, and if you get it just right, that piece will pull right off.

Waaaah-LAH!

Waaaah-LAH!

This can work for many brands of palettes, existing Mac Pro x15’s, and mac palettes that are smaller as well… so play around and see. Mac is making a new ‘blank-canvas’ large palette that you can customize now, I purchased this newer generation palette with an optional plastic liner for lips. Sounds like we won’t be breaking the inserts out of mac pro palettes for long! Good work, MAC.

Thinking outside the box, errr, palette: you can get nuts with products, too: invite your foundation powder to the party, blushes, bronzers, cream blushes, whatever!

Getting crazy here, people

Getting crazy here, People!

Get creative, and let me know how it goes. Until next time, Stay Fabulous my Friends!
