What is Halo treatment?

- Enlarged skin pores
- Hyperpigmentation from sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Skin blemish and freckles

If you ended up loving one specific treatment when it comes to lasers you can always specialize! Many people end up really enjoying laser tattoo removal and specialize in that one treatment. If that is you, then getting a job at a tattoo shop would be the perfect option for you.
A decade ago, cosmetic treatments were primarily performed by plastic surgeons and dermatologists with several years of training. Now, primary care physicians, obstetricians, and OB/GYNs are adding different aesthetic services to their practices because they are cash-based, and there are no insurance hassles.
Cosmetic lasers compliment non-laser treatments like Botox and dermal fillers. With recent advances in technology, medical spas are expanding their offerings to include aesthetically- and medically-based services.
Day spas and beauty salons
While day spas typically focus on relaxation and rejuvenation, they have recognized the need to add these services to deliver more dramatic results. Some businesses have brought in a physician or nurse to provide cosmetic procedures to their clients who might already get laser hair reduction and Botox elsewhere.
Small businesses focusing on only one type of treatment can decrease overhead costs while providing excellent service. Niche boutiques have become popular for procedures like laser hair and tattoo removal. While these cosmetic treatments typically require multiple sessions to be effective, this can turn new clients into repeat customers.
Recently, some national fitness chains have begun offering cosmetic laser treatments as part of their in-house spa amenities. Fitness centers are capitalizing on their current member base and expanding to non-members to provide a one-stop-shop.
