Are you embarrassed by the sight of wrinkles, acne scars, age spots, or uneven skin tone? Halo™ is a hybrid fractional laser treatment that is a breakthrough for multiple skin conditions. It combines two types of lasers that deliver dramatic results with little downtime. Halo™ is the world’s first and only hybrid fractional laser, and uses both ablative and non-ablative technology. The combination offers dramatic results, comfort and low downtime. Until recently, you had to choose between an ablative treatment, which provided great results but a lengthy recovery period, or a non-ablative treatment, which offered quick recovery but marginal results. With Halo™, you get the best of both worlds with impressive results and minimal downtime.
What is Halo™ Fractional Laser?
Developed by Sciton, a leading manufacturer of high-quality aesthetic lasers and light systems, Halo™ is a hybrid fractional laser treatment that offers an innovative approach to skin resurfacing. It’s hybrid because it simultaneously delivers non-ablative and ablative wavelengths in a single pulse. Skin resurfacing is considered one of the most effective treatments for skin conditions and improving signs of aging. Ablative treatments remove the outer layers of damaged skin, stimulating collagen production and wound healing. This results in tighter and rejuvenated skin. The less invasive non-ablative treatment gently heats the skin surface without injuring it, resulting in a quicker healing time. With Halo, you get the best of both worlds… amazing results with minimal downtime.
Halo™ is built with Dynamic Thermal Optimization (DTO), which continually detects a patient’s skin temperature and automatically adjusts the energy and pulse being delivered. Halo also comes with a highly-sophisticated hand-piece that includes integrated air cooling and smoke evacuation, keeping the patient cool and comfortable and the skin clear from any debris.
Halo’s high-speed optical navigation system captures the motion of the handpiece and tracks its speed with extreme precision in mapping the patient’s skin. This increases the safety of the treatment and ensures a consistent treatment.
Halo’s non-ablative wavelength is tunable from 200-700 degrees, making it ideal for treating skin irregularities, such as pigmentation, pore size and texture. Halo’s ablation wavelength is adjustable from 20-100 microns, which decreases healing time and improves wound-healing response from small ablative injuries. Halo’s dual wavelengths can be customized based on the patient’s exact needs.
Here’s a list of skin conditions that can be treated with Halo™ is a hybrid fractional laser:
Enlarged skin pores
Hyperpigmentation from sun damage
Uneven skin tone
Chicken pox scars
Skin blemish and freckles

What to Expect
Before the procedure, Dr. Sheila Nazarian, a leading board-certified plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills, will review your medical history, conduct a physical and discuss appropriate treatment expectations. The Halo™ laser treatment usually takes about 1 hour to complete. The first half hour is spent applying the topical anesthetic cream and allowing it to take effect. The treatment itself takes about 30-45 minutes, depending on the skin’s condition to be treated. A skin moisturizer will be applied to the treated areas to keep it moist. Swelling and redness is expected after treatment. Your skin may also feel warm for about 12-24 hours post-Halo™ treatment. We recommend applying cold compresses to keep your skin cool and help reduce swelling. Significant results can be expected from a single Halo™ treatment. However, sometimes, a second treatment may be needed. Acne scarring does require multiple treatments depending on the severity.
In rare cases, ablative laser resurfacing can cause various side effects, such as itching, swelling, turning of eyelid, redness and infection. It’s important to strictly follow pre- and post-treatment skin care to avoid serious side effects. In order to prevent a cold sore, we do prescribe acyclovir to start taking a couple days before the treatment and for 5 days after the treatment.
The total cost of Halo™ hybrid fractional laser treatment varies depending on the skin condition to be treated and the number of sessions needed. The cost of your treatment plan will be determined during your initial consultation at Nazarian Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills.

I am truly very happy with Dr . Nazarian. Again thank you very much for doing such a great job.
Dr. Nazarian is the a 5 star plastic surgeon! I had a growing scalp mass above my left ear, kinda like a cyst, she told me it was called lipoma. Anyway she removed the cyst in her office even when I was told by other doctors that it had to be done at a hospital which is more cost full and inconvenient for your wallet. She’s a great doctor and definitely recommend anyone to visit her office, her receptionist is on point and is very kind, helpful, and welcoming when visiting the office or calling about your appointment.
Besides being a great surgeon, Dr Nazarian carries a line for PREGNANT women called Spa Momma which is made-in-the-USA with no lead, phthalates, formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and no pregnancy-contraindicated aromatherapy oils!!!!!! I am obsessed with the body oil and the body scrub! I was having some major itching issues and I tried everything but nothing really helped. Then I tried the itchies body oil and it was the first relief I had had in months and I have no stretch marks!!!!!!!! Dr Nazarian is so up to date and science based and is willing to take time and help you out no matter what you issue is!!! I love her professionalism and recommend 110%!
