What Is Laser Skin Resurfacing?
A revolutionary laser resurfacing treatment, the HALO® laser treatment by Sciton combines ablative and non-ablative lasers to treat both the top layer of the skin and the tissue beneath the surface for an all-in-one, incredible skin rejuvenation treatment, eliminating years of damage by activating your body's natural healing response. As you age, your skin is exposed to many external factors that lead to sun damage and loss of collagen. With HALO laser skin treatments at JEM Medspa Indiana, we can turn back the hands of time and treat your fine lines, wrinkles, and sun damage to restore your youthful glow. This hybrid fractional laser uses cutting-edge technology in anti-aging, meaning you can achieve maximum results with minimal downtime and discomfort. Contact our Munster, IN office today and schedule a consultation with our talented staff to see if HALO laser treatment is the right fit for your cosmetic needs.

Am I a Candidate for Laser Skin Resurfacing?
Laser skin resurfacing with the advanced HALO system is ideal for most people who are unhappy with the appearance of their complexion. If you have skin damaged by the sun, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation concerns, this procedure may be helpful to correct these imperfections. In addition, this treatment works effectively for those who have rough texture, scaly patches, or other irregularities. During your consultation, we will examine your skin and listen to your goals and concerns to ensure you're a great candidate for this effective, noninvasive skin-renewing treatment.
Our Laser Skin Resurfacing Technique
Depending on your skin goals, JEM Medspa Indiana offers three types of laser skin resurfacing procedures:
Ablative Laser Treatments
A wavelength of light removes the outer layer of skin, similar to dermabrasion or a deep chemical peel, to minimize damage to the skin. Ablative lasers are ideal for improving fine to moderate wrinkles, age spots, uneven skin tone, sun-damaged skin, freckles, acne, or other facial scars.
Non-Ablative Laser Treatments
By creating heat under the skin's surface without resurfacing the skin, non-ablative lasers treat wrinkles, skin spots, fine lines, and facial scarring. Non-ablative laser treatments promote collagen production, which tightens the skin, and gives skin a youthful, healthy glow and anti-aging benefits.
Fractional Laser Treatments
Fractional lasers are a combination of non-ablative and ablative that make small holes in the lower skin layers. The skin's automatic healing leads to tighter, firmer, and healthier skin. Fractional laser treatments may also be used to treat fine lines, sun damage, acne scars, and pigmentation problems.
When you have a more intense or deeper laser resurfacing treatment, you may be asked to use a topical retinoid for 2 – 3 weeks before your laser appointment. The retinoid helps prepare the skin for maximum results. Medication may be prescribed prior to the treatment to help minimize any sensation for greater relaxation throughout your session. If your skin only needs mild treatment, local anesthesia will be used to numb certain areas where the laser will target. For the full complexion or deeper laser procedures, a kind of sedation may be necessary. During the procedure, you can relax in our special treatment chair while the laser passes over the skin, precisely targeting the specific areas for rejuvenation. You may feel heat from the laser, followed by cold air from the system's built-in cooling device. The laser is designed to destroy damaged skin cells while also prompting new collagen growth.

Laser Skin Resurfacing FAQs
What's the best type of resurfacing for me?
Our skilled aesthetic team in Munster, IN will help you decide which laser resurfacing option fits your concerns and goals during your initial consultation. The best treatment for you will depend on the health and condition of your skin, your skin issues, and the skin depth you want your treatment to reach. The length of time you have for recovery might also be a deciding factor when you create a treatment plan. If you are in doubt, it is better to try a lighter treatment then assess your results and adjust as needed for your second appointment.
How can I help my skin recover after a resurfacing treatment?
A JEM Medspa Indiana team member will discuss how to speed skin healing following your treatment. The most important rule is to not pick or peel flaking skin. This can cause long-term damage like scars. You should skip all hair removal methods in the treatment area, which include waxing, shaving, and depilatory creams. We can suggest topical creams to help soothe and heal treated areas.
How often should I get laser resurfacing treatments?
Based on the laser resurfacing method you and our team select for your treatment, you may need to wait weeks or even months between treatments. Deeper laser treatments will provide results that last a long time but require a lengthy recovery period. You should talk to your aesthetician about how often you are willing to return for appointments so they can consider this when choosing a type of resurfacing during your consultation.
