Dermatology-South offering new laser service

This is a news release from Hattiesburg Clinic

Dermatology – South, a service of Hattiesburg Clinic, is now offering a new laser service designed to provide significant results in a short amount of time. Halo™ is a laser treatment created to eliminate years of damage and restore a youthful glow.

Halo™ is a Hybrid Fractional Laser that delivers skin rejuvenation. The goal of Halo™ is to improve the skin's overall tone and texture, significantly remove discoloration and reduce pore size to increase the skin's luminous glow. A customizable treatment plan is also available with this service. One, two or more treatments can be selected depending on personal skin goals and with a faster healing time.

The skin is a protective, yet delicate shield for the human body and can accumulate years of damage due to sun exposure and aging. This new service can potentially help reverse some of that damage, according to Elizabeth Francis Rose, MD, FAAD, a dermatologist at Dermatology – South.

"Halo™ offers a different type of patient experience in laser resurfacing. The possibility of noticeable results with minimal downtime is the ideal goal in making our patients happy. I would not be surprised if this becomes one of the most utilized procedures in our practice," said Dr. Rose.

William Waller, III, MD, FAAD, who also practices at Dermatology – South, said the addition of the Halo laser is part of the clinic's effort to provide a variety of services that patients can choose from to enhance their overall skin health.

"We are thrilled to be able to offer this new service at our clinic, and we have already received positive interest from patients who are looking to try it," said Dr. Waller. "Our motto at Dermatology – South is that 'beautiful skin starts here,' and we believe that this new service will continue to help us strive to fulfill that philosophy."

To offer a peek at the new laser resurfacing service, Dermatology – South will host Halo™ Event Day on Friday, Dec. 11. A representative from the manufacturing company, Sciton®, will be on site to discuss the service and answer questions. Special discounts for Halo™ treatments will also be offered that day only. If you would like to attend, please register by calling 601.261.3540.
