Halo benefits in your 50's
The best way to think about addressing facial aging is by using multiple modalities that will compliment each other to give you a beautiful and harmonious result. Therefore, I do agree with you that Botox has a limited benefit, especially in the upper third of the face. If you are really interested in reversing some of the damage that has been done by sun, such as pigmentation, vascularity, large pore size, as well as fine lines, I think that you will appreciate the benefits of Halo. However, the lower third of the face will benefit from additional injectables and fillers that will help re fill some of the lost volume that happens once you enter your 50's. Of course as you know, the area that becomes most apparent is the neck area since we start having the banding of the platysma muscle, as well as excess skin in the jowl area, and possibly subcutaneous fat. Each of these have their own modality which will help create a smoother contour to the jaw line as well as the lower face. Therefore I advice you to have a frank conversation with your doctor, and seek at least two different opinions to make sure you're getting the entire perspective on what is possible for what you want to have done.

You are a prime age for the Halo as patients typically range from 35 to 70. Halo is a cutting edge laser for the treatment of wrinkles and age spots.
Fees will range across the country, and the fees for Halo in South Florida is generally less than more expensive cities such as New York or Los Angeles or in areas with fewer physicians providing Halo.

Too old for Halo?
Obviously, without seeing a photo of you, no one can definitively answer your question. However, I appreciate the wording of your question: "Can I get benefit from Halo for moderate and wrinkles and age spots?"
What your question demonstrates, to me, is that you have very reasonable expectations.
Best of luck to you.
