Dr. Kris Reddy FACS: Expert of Halo Laser Resurfacing in West Palm Beach
The Halo laser is the world’s first ablative and non-ablative combination laser. The Halo gives the results of deep resurfacing but without the extended downtime. With the Halo laser, Dr. Reddy can precisely target years of damage to your skin, including:
- Sun Damage
- Visible signs of aging
- Uneven skin tone
- Enlarged pores
- Poor Texture
- Fine Lines
- Improvement of scars (such as acne scars) on the face.
It is designed for the active patient who needs skin rejuvenation but can not afford or tolerate down time. Moreover, the cost to the patient for the Halo procedure is more manageable than traditional laser resurfacing. The Halo laser either by itself or in combination with traditional laser resurfacing and bbl/ipl allows Dr. Kris Reddy FACS, West Palm Beach board certified plastic surgeon, an unsurpassable ability to personalize treatments to specific goals and conditions of the patient.
“Live Your Life Forever Young” is a concept based on the research and publication of Dr. Anne Lynn S. Chang of the Stanford University School of Medicine as published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology and scientists Dieter Manstein, MD, PhD and R. Rox Anderson, MD of HarvardUniversity.
As applied by Dr. Kris Reddy FACS (a board certified plastic surgeon with over 30 years of expertise), “Live Your Life Forever Young” means providing patients significant transformation without needing them to alter their lifestyle.
The Halo provides a patient significant transformation without needing them to alter their lifestyle. After a Halo treatment, a patient will be able to heal quickly, and return to tennis (or whatever activity a patient likes) within a week to 2 weeks as long as he/she just has good sun protection.
Dr. Reddy performs traditional laser resurfacing as well, but recommends the Halo for the active patient who seeks remarkable skin rejuvenation without substantial recovery.

Frequently Asked Questions
What results can I expect?
Halo is a complete skin rejuvenation treatment. You will see improvements in overall tone and texture in addition to significant removal of discoloration, reduction in fine lines*, reduced pore size, skin reflectivity and glow.
What happens during the treatment?
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your clinician may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The clinician will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
What does Halo feel like?
With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience very little discomfort. Most patients describe the treatment as a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 15 to 30 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels.
How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
For the first 24 hours you should keep your skin protected according to your clinician’s instructions, but after that you should be able to go about your normal activities. After the first 24 hours your skin will begin to peel, but you will be able to put on makeup. For a facial treatment, you will see very little change on the first day. After two to three days you will develop a light bronzing appearance. By day three or four your skin will peel, revealing your new skin beneath.
When will I see results?
You will see initial results between two and five days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
How long will my results last?
Our Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin. Without proper sun protection, you will lose some of the benefits of the treatment.
How many treatments do you need?
What’s great about Halo is that you can choose how many treatments you want! During a free, private consultation, Dr. Reddy will be able to understand your needs and guide you to determine if you would benefit most from one or two more aggressive treatments or have multiple treatments that are less aggressive and achieve a similar goal over a longer period of time.
What happens during the treatment?
Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment Dr. Reddy and Staff may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. The area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. Dr. Reddy will treat each measured section by uniformly rolling the Halo handpiece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
Besides the face, are there other popular areas for Halo?
Patients also enjoy the results from the Halo Laser for the neck and Décolletage.
