Her knowledge of the Zo skin care products and all of the treatments that she offers is bar none. I completely and totally trust Angelina and because of her my skin is glowing! I have had two Halo procedures which have improved the quality of my skin dramatically. Goodbye fine lines and dark spots! Angelina helped me choose which treatment would be best for me. I decided on Halo over BBL to achieve the results that I wanted. She is great at explaining everything to you and making you feel comfortable always. I get regular facials with Angelina which are wonderful and keep my skin looking its best. The Zo skin care products are incredible! Angelina is great about keeping me on a regimen that works for me.

"Sun Spots on Forehead - Great, Angelina Zega did a great job in lasering my sun spots on my forehead. She is very knowledgeable and was good at taking care of my problem. I had 2 procedures of laser treatment each one took about a week to heal. It cleared up my sun spots on my forehead. I would highly recommend her if you have a simliar problem."- B. / RealSelf / Aug 23, 2018
Halo laser treatments are performed in our office as an outpatient procedure with the patient under no or local anesthesia. The patient’s eye will be protected as the laser wand is passed over the face, neck, chest, and/or hands. After the treatment, a protective ointment will be applied to the skin before the patient leaves to recover at home.
What to Expect
Patients may see redness and peeling for 1 – 2 weeks after their treatment as the skin forms a scab and begins to heal. In 2 – 8 weeks after the procedure, the patient should be able to wear makeup to camouflage their skin. Patients should use sun protection at all times after their treatment and limit direct sun exposure as much as possible. Patients should talk to a team member about when to schedule touch-up appointments and creating a good home skin care routine.
The Hybrid Fractional Laser
What it is
Breathtaking Results. Award-Winning Technology.
HALO is the world’s only Hybrid Fractional Laser that delivers a non-ablative and an ablative wavelength simultaneously to the same microscopic treatment zone.
HALO combines these two wavelengths to create a strong synergistic effect, resulting in unmatched improvement in the visible signs of skin aging, including fine line and wrinkles, discoloration, the appearance of pores, and acne scars. Ablative wavelengths target and treat the skin for surface-level conditions such as textural issues and pore size. By creating small thermal injuries in the skin, this kickstarts production of new, healthy skin for visible results in a short period of time.
The non-ablative wavelength targets deeper sun damage and other dermal pigmentary issues. Together, these wavelengths provide both short-term results and long-term benefits to a wide variety of patients.
