SmoothGlo laser skin resurfacing


HALO® is a laser treatment that combines the benefits of ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to rejuvenate the skin. This procedure precisely targets damaged skin cells and stimulates collagen production resulting in smoother texture, improved tone, and reducing signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven pigmentation. HALO® addresses sun damage, acne scars, and overall skin aging.
