Halo Laser and Skin Tightening?

Halo and Skin Tightening
This is a very good question, because often times the expectation is that one laser treatment will be able to address the multiple problems that you may have. In your particular scenario, you will definitely see an improvement int he pigmentation as well as the vascularity and pore size. Halo can even be effective for some of the fine lines around the eyes and lips. However, Halo will not be effective in tightening your skin. The most consistently effective procedure for tightening any sagging of the neck area is a surgical lift, which will also provide you with the longest lasting results. Short of that, there are a number of procedures such as a mini lift, or using ultherapy or radio frequency which have shown some benefit. However, the results are not dramatic, and you have to decide whether it is worth the time and money to pursue these other modalities.
Halo And Skin tightening.
I personally have tried different technologies and my patients have been very pleased with their result with Halo, particularly color, tone, wrinkle reduction and overall skin appearance. Halo is not primarily a 'tightening' procedure but many of my patients have told me they feel a 'lift' effect. In my opinion, there is no technology yet available that would substitute a good neck/facelift yet.

Halo can very slightly tighten the skin via resurfacing and collagen stimulation, but is not a tightening treatment
Halo Hybrid Fractional Laser is a unique type of laser that delivers two laser wavelengths simultaneously: 1) an ablative laser and 2) a non ablative laser. The ablative laser resurfaces the outside layers of the skin, and the non ablative laser penetrates deep into the skin through thousands of tiny, deep columns known as microthermal treatment zones. The main objective of Halo is to reduce epidermal pigmented cells and to deliver heat deep into the dermis to tighten skin and stimulate collagen remodelling.
So to answer your question, with Halo, patients do experience a very slight overall tightening of the skin - and this could be described as you said, as a "minor lift". However, this tightening is likely going to be insufficient for you to notice an improvement to the sagging you have under the chin. If your primary concern is pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, and dull looking skin, Halo is a good choice. If your primary concern is loose skin under the chin, then skin tightening with something like SkinTyte might be an option for you. If you are open to surgery, the gold standard for improving sagging skin under the chin is lower facelift surgery.
All the best,
