Halo Laser

Halo is a customizable hybrid fractional laser that gives patients beautiful results with minimal downtime. It combines both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths in the same treatment zone and can be adjusted to target only the deepest layers of the skin. The intensity of the laser can be adjusted so that the surface of the skin is left entirely unaffected, leading to quicker healing time and improved patient comfort.

Because it can be adjusted so easily, the Halo laser can be used to correct the appearance of a broad range of aesthetic issues, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Discoloration
  • Enlarged pores
  • Poor texture

More aggressive Halo laser treatments can soften the appearance of fine lines and scars.

Depending on the intensity of your treatment, you may or may not receive a topical anesthetic. The sensation of the Halo handpiece rolling over the skin causes a warm, prickling sensation.  The extent of downtime experienced depends upon the intensity of the treatment received.

The MicroLaserPeel uses light energy to remove dead skin cells that can give the surface of the skin a tired or dry look. One of the things that makes the MicroLaserPeel unique is that it is adjustable to reach various depths of the dermis, allowing for the treatment to be tailored to the specific concerns and needs of the patient.

The MicroLaserPeel can treat a variety of skin imperfections, including:

  • Sun damage
  • Scars
  • Keratosis
  • Wrinkles
  • Off-color pigmentation

The removal of the surface layer of dead skin cells leaves room for and speeds up the production of healthy skin cells to take their place, resulting in the treated skin taking on a younger, tighter, and healthier look.

The full benefits of the treatment can be further elaborated by one of our professionals during your consultation appointment.


The NanoLaserPeel is a great introduction into the world of Sciton lasers. It’s especially well-suited to treat the signs of aging on the face and can be completed in as little as five minutes.

This laser can be used to combat many signs of aging that crop up on the face, including fine lines, scars and sun damage.

The downtime of this treatment is the shortest of any of the laser skin resurfacing options we offer, requiring patients only 1 to 2 days of recovery.

Contour TRL

The Contour Tunable Resurfacing Laser, or TRL, is a leading-edge YAG erbium laser skin resurfacing treatment. Traditional CO₂ lasers have a fixed rate of coagulation to ablation. The Contour TRL  is different. This device allows Dr. Collins to precisely adjust the depth of both ablation and coagulation independently and to micron precision.  It can reach depths between 50µm to 200µm.

The Contour TRL can treat many of the signs of aging that affect the skin, including:

  • Mild to deep wrinkles
  • Acne, surgical and trauma-related scars
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Deep lines around the mouth
  • Loose skin
  • Actinic keratoses
  • Poor skin tone or texture

A topical anesthetic is administered during all Contour TRL treatments, with the addition of local anesthetic for deeper treatments. Patients can expect 3 to 4 days of recovery time for shallow procedures, and 5 to 7 days for deeper ones. The skin will improve gradually over the 4 to 6 months following treatment.
