"Dr. Gorman and his staff are absolutely amazing! They are genuinely nice people and go above and beyond to answer all your questions and make you feel comfortable with getting your surgery. I have never been at a doctor's office that is so warm and inviting. I am so glad I found Dr. Gorman and highly recommend him. I would also like to recommend Lauren for your Botox needs. She is absolutely amazing and so sweet and gentle. I love her so much! Thank you Dr. Gorman and staff! Y'all are the best!"- M.W. / Facebook / Feb 06, 2017
"Dr. Gorman and his staff are wonderful. I was very anxious before my first appointment. I had implants in 1982 and really had no problems with them until some pain in 2017. I was nervous that they would be shocked that I had not had them replaced in all those years but instead from the moment I walked in the office I was put at ease....everyone made me feel that it was no big deal and they would take care of me. And that’s exactly what they did. I’ve waited 3 months to write this review I wanted to see if ‘the honeymoon’ was over....quite the contrary I am happier than ever. My surgery was beyond my expectations. I feel like one of the family....Dr. Gorman, Margaret, Megan, Lauren, and Helen have all been wonderful taking care of all my beauty needs."- G.B. / Google / Jul 26, 2018

Halo procedures use fractional laser technology to penetrate the top layer of skin. Depending on the laser setting, light energy is applied to stimulate the creation of collagen and to resurface the top layer of skin. During the procedure, the practitioner will use the Halo“smart scanning” hand piece to achieve this rejuvenation process. Halo can be applied to the face, neck, stomach, upper and inner arms, legs, thighs and buttocks.
What to Expect
Patients will have different experiences with Halo depending on whether they are receiving an ablative or nonablative treatment. During nonablative Halo treatments, patients should anticipate mild to moderate discomfort during their procedure. Patients receiving ablative Halo treatments should anticipate moderate to significant discomfort during their treatment. For this reason, anesthesia is sometimes recommended. Although redness and minor swelling in the treated areas are common immediately following the procedure, patients undergoing this treatment can resume normal activity up to 2 days after their treatment for nonablative treatments and up to a week after their treatment for ablative treatments

Halo Laser FAQs
Individuals who are seeking an alternative to chemical peels and dermabrasion and who are not comfortable with a surgical procedure are among the most ideal candidates for Halo.
How Long do the Results Last?
The results will vary patient-to-patient depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment. Visible results have been present up to 5 years following treatment. Since Halo treatments can be repeated as many times as your practitioner deems necessary, the results can last much longer than 5 years with proper maintenance. Because this treatment has the ability to be repeated, it remains at the forefront of non-invasive anti-aging skin treatments.
How Many Treatments?
The amount of treatments required to obtain optimal results vary depending on variables such as skin type, degree of treatment required, etc. Generally, patients that choose nonablative Halo can expect to receive 3-5 treatments with several months in between treatments, while patients that choose ablative Halo usually only require 1 treatment.
