What is laser skin resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing is a popular professional skin treatment that aims to address a wide variety of complexion issues with a single system, including:
- Fine lines
- Mild skin laxity
- Drooping features
- Large pores
- Scaly skin
- Patchy skin
- Rough skin texture
- Age spots
- Liver spots
- Sun damage
- Uneven skin tone
- Acne scarring
- Dry skin
- Oily skin
At JEM Medspa Indiana, our experienced aesthetic team performs laser skin resurfacing using the hybrid fractional HALO laser, which combines both ablative and non-ablative laser energies. This allows targeted energy to be delivered to both the epidermis and the deeper layers of skin for a more complete transformation. In addition, laser skin resurfacing with HALO stimulates the natural production of collagen, helping to firm and tighten the skin for a lifted, more youthful look overall.
Does HALO skin treatment hurt?
The strength of laser skin resurfacing treatment with the HALO laser can be adjusted to meet the needs of each patient. In most cases, a topical numbing agent is applied to the skin prior to treatment to minimize any discomfort or pain that may be felt. For the most intense treatments, sedation may be necessary. Our caring team is committed to making your treatment and recovery as comfortable as possible and will discuss all of your available options during your initial consultation.
How long is recovery after laser skin resurfacing?
Most patients begin to experience dryness and peeling about 3 – 5 days after laser skin resurfacing. Depending on the strength of your treatment, you can expect the healing phase to last anywhere from several days to several weeks. As your skin heals, it is imperative that you refrain from scratching or picking at the flaking skin, as this can delay the healing process and lead to other complications, like scarring or discoloration. The majority of patients feel comfortable and confident returning to work and social activities about one week after laser skin resurfacing. Again, this can vary based on the nature and intensity of the treatment.
How will my skin look after laser skin resurfacing?
Once your skin has fully healed and recovered from laser skin resurfacing, you should notice visibly smoother, softer, younger-looking skin. One of the most frequent comments after laser skin resurfacing is that patients feel like their skin is finally glowing the way they’ve always dreamed of.
