Halo Laser Treatments in West Palm Beach and Palm Beach Gardens

Are you seeking a treatment for fine lines, sun spots, or dull skin that is effective without requiring significant downtime? At Lickstein Plastic Surgery in Palm Beach Gardens, we are pleased to offer Halo, a customizable, non-surgical laser treatment that can address a range of skin concerns to give you your glow back. Halo repairs the effects of aging and environmental damage in a way that other lasers can’t because Halo offers targeted treatment at precise depths.

Benefits of Halo Laser Treatment

  • Each treatment is personalized to meet your specific needs
  • Diminishes visible signs of aging
  • Improves skin tone and texture for a youthful glow
  • Minimizes enlarged pores
  • Customizable treatments allow for flexibility in scheduling and downtime

How Does Halo Work?

Halo is a hybrid fractional laser. The first of its kind, this innovative laser combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths. Lasers that only use ablative wavelengths may not address visible signs of aging and they require lengthy downtime; lasers with non-ablative wavelengths are gentler but require many treatments to deliver noticeable results. By combining the two wavelengths with a diode non-ablative laser and an ablative yttrium aluminum garnet laser, Halo gives you the best of both worlds – beautiful results with little to no downtime.

Is Halo Right For Me?

Halo is well-suited for a broad range of patients because it can be customized to treat a wide variety of concerns, from minimizing enlarged pores to improving uneven skin tone. A lighter Halo treatment may be right for patients who want a refreshed look the very next day, while a deeper Halo treatment can offer full rejuvenation with just a few days of downtime.

If you want skin that is naturally luminous, Halo may be right for you! Contact our office for a consultation with our doctors to find out if you are a candidate.
