The HALO laser is the first hybrid fractional laser (HFL) that delivers both ablative and non-ablative laser light to the same treatment area. This means it can treat multiple skin concerns in a single treatment by targeting both the outer layers of the skin and the deeper layers of the skin to create a noticeable improvement in skin’s tone and texture while also creating lasting collagen.

  • Melasma and dark spots
  • Redness
  • Sun damage
  • Large pores
  • Rough texture

HALO can be used on the face, neck, chest, and hands to treat a variety of skin issues.


The BBL HERO laser is an upgraded BBL (Broadband Light) pulsed light technology that enables us to treat larger areas of the skin in one treatment, allowing us to shorten treatment times and improve results. BBL HERO (High Energy Rapid Output) can be used to treat the chest, back, arms, legs, and torso. It uses pulses of light energy to gently heat the skin’s surface while also using CoolComfort™ technology to reduce discomfort during treatment. Thanks to this combination of technologies, we are able to treat large areas of the body during a single session with no downtime.

Forever Young BBL®

Forever Young BBL laser treatments before and after 2 months

Forever Young BBL is the gold standard in anti-aging and skin rejuvenation.  This treatment has been clinically proven by Stanford University to have the ability to restore the genetic expression pattern of aging skin to resemble youthful skin.  A series of treatments are performed for corrective measures and is then proceeded by bi-annual treatments to uphold long term results.

Forever Clear BBL®

Forever Clear BBL for active acne before and after

Struggle with stubborn acne? Avoid the need for oral medication and prescription topical creams with Forever Clear BBL®.  This 3-pass light-pulsed treatment kills acne-causing bacteria, reduces inflammation, and produces new collagen to enhance the body’s healing response. We recommend 4-6 treatments performed on a weekly basis.  A semi-annual treatment is then recommended to maintain results. Combined with customized medical grade skincare for home use, Forever Clear BBL can wipe out acne rapidly!

The appearance of spider veins on the body is a common concern for many men and women. ClearV works quickly to reduce their appearance and can be done without disrupting daily activities. Most spider veins can be cleared in only 1-3 treatments depending on the severity.  ClearV also can address stubborn broken capillaries, port wine stains, and almost any other vascular concern.

Safe for all skin types, the ClearV laser targets visible veins and fades them quickly, resulting in an improved appearance with no downtime.

ProFractional is a fractional laser skin resurfacing treatment that focuses on improving the overall quality of the skin. Using fractional laser energy to target trouble areas, ProFractional delivers highly targeted laser energy into the deep layers of the skin while leaving a portion of the tissue intact, resulting in shorter healing time than other laser skin resurfacing treatments. Designed to create noticeable results with a few treatments, ProFractional targets more advanced skin concerns to help turn back the clock and reveal fresh, radiant skin.

Common Questions

How much do HALO, BBL HERO, ClearV, and Profractional laser skin treatments cost?

Since each laser skin treatment is customized to your unique needs and skin concerns, the price for these laser treatments in Scottsdale can vary. The price depends on the area being treated, the skin concern being addressed, and treatment itself, and the number of treatments needed. We will provide a personalized price quote at your consultation.

How do I know which laser skin resurfacing treatment I need?

You do not need to decide which laser skin treatment you need before you schedule your consultation. During your consultation, your provider will talk with you about your concerns and goals. She will perform a full assessment of your skin then provide a recommended treatment plan customized to help you achieve your goals.

What are laser skin resurfacing treatments like?

Depending on the laser treatment you have, the treatment time and comfort levels may vary, but for the most part, our laser skin resurfacing treatments are quick and comfortable with little to no downtime. Our providers have been specially trained to perform laser skin resurfacing treatments to ensure outstanding outcomes while keeping you as comfortable as possible. Most laser treatments are very comfortable. Some patients equate the feeling of the laser to the snapping of a rubber band on the skin and some mild heating in the skin. These sensations fade quickly as the handpiece is moved to a different treatment area, and your provider will focus on your comfort and safety throughout the treatment. Topical numbing cream is typically applied, and Pro-Nox (nitrous oxide/oxygen) may be administered for additional comfort.

What can I expect after a laser skin resurfacing treatment?

Your recovery time will vary depending on the treatment performed. The more aggressive your treatment is, the more downtime is expected. Fully ablative laser resurfacing results in typically 7-10 days of downtime.  More mild laser resurfacing treatments can be anywhere from 3-5 days of downtime.  Depending on the depth of the laser resurfacing treatment, you may experience some redness and tightness in the treatment area for a few hours to a few days following treatment, followed by darkening of the skin at the treatment area for a few days. Once your skin has healed, you will start to see refreshed, brighter, tighter skin over the next few weeks and months.

Each treatment is extensively covered in your consultation, and the level of treatment aggression will be confirmed prior to your session.  All pre/post care instructions will be provided to give every patient the information that is needed to receive a safe and effective treatment.
