Halo Laser Treatments
Release Your Inner Glow – Radiant skin without the downtime
Over time, your skin can lose its youthful glow due to sun exposure and your body’s natural aging process. As a result, your body may develop sun spots, fine lines, and lose that natural healthy glow. Previous lasers couldn’t effectively remove this damage, because the treatment was either too shallow or too deep. Halo eliminates years of damage by precisely targeting the right depth. Halo restores the luminous glow you had when you were younger.
Get that Glow with Halo:
- Customizable treatment to precisely target skin damage
- Improvement in the appearance of tone, texture, fine lines (with hybrid treatments) and wrinkles
