Discover HALO™: The World's First Hybrid Fractional Laser

Hybrid Technology - The Best of Both Worlds

Traditional laser resurfacing procedures require you to make a difficult choice between stunning results and quick recovery. HALO™ laser treatment is the modern solution that gives you everything you deserve. It is finally possible to get the results you’ve always dreamed of with minimal recovery time.

Our unique laser technology is the first to combine ablative and non-ablative treatments to the same area. This revolutionary approach allows our team to create a custom plan that gives you the results that you want with the recovery time that you need. The HALO™ laser is able to simultaneously work on both the top layer of skin while rejuvenating the deep tissue for radiant results. HALO™ laser recovery is fast, getting you back to normal life in a couple of days.

How Does HALO™ Laser Work?

We provide the only skin treatment that combines the results and rejuvenation of both ablative and non-ablative laser therapy. The synergy that comes from this hybrid solution delivers high quality results with improved comfort and rapid recovery. Both types of lasers work together to resolve common skin issues such as:

  • Wrinkles
  • Brown Spots
  • Skin Tone
  • Skin Texture
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Sun Damage
  • Scars - Acne, Chickenpox, etc


This laser primarily works on the top layer of skin and works to achieve the most noticeable results. The wavelengths can be adjusted to micro-target specific issues deeper in skin tissue. With a focus on the top layers of skin, this tunable laser works from the outside-in for noticeable change.


This laser is focused below the skin surface to warm the underlying tissue and increase collagen growth and promote healing. Working from the inside-out, this tunable laser is able to address deeper issues of skin discoloration, sun damage, and texture.

You can experience the HALO™ difference with Dr. Jeff Markey and the world-class team at Ascentist Aesthetics and Facial Plastics. Don’t settle for mediocre results or lengthy recovery; you can have it all with the world’s first hybrid laser skin therapy.
