About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Let us wow your skin with the world's first Hybrid Fractional Laser the Halo offered at ARTisan Skin & Laser Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical technique that applies both ablative and non-ablative wave lengths to exfoliate damaged skin. It is great for all ages and most skin types. This laser therapy is renowned for improving facial lines, wrinkles, skin blemishes, acne scars, pigmentation, pores and more. There is some "social" downtime needed with most laser skin resurfacing procedures, which can be discussed during your complimentary skincare consultation.
Our Laser Treatments
Indulge your skin in the synergistic effects of laser skin resurfacing to improve the tone and texture by removing damaged cells and stimulating collagen growth. At your Halo laser session, we will use a hybrid of two fractional lasers to render extensive dermal rejuvenation to your skin. Halo creates beautiful results without the downtime of more aggressive resurfacing procedures. We will do our best to keep you comfortable and cool, as most patients feel a sensation of heat during the session. After the appointment, you may continue to feel warm for an additional 30 – 60 minutes.
Experience an overall improvement in your skin's appearance while reducing the signs of aging or other imperfections. You can also enhance the experience with bringing the Halo laser down on to your neck or you may also add on the ProFractional XC/MicroLaser Peel lasers to the area around your eyes and eyelid to improve fine lines and wrinkles for more younger looking, youthful eyes.
Laser Skin Resurfacing Reviews
"I received a Halo laser from Emma and had a great experience! The clinic was lovely and comfortable, staff was polite and helpful and I’ve had great results so far. I was nervous about the recovery period but the instructions and supplies provided made it a breeze. Highly recommend!"- M.N. / Google / Oct 11, 2022
"I’m so thankful I chose Artisan Skin and Laser for my first BBL and Botox experience. Emma is wonderful! She put me at ease and effortlessly guided me through my consultation. She gave me options for each of my concerns and even let me ask questions to help some of my family members with their concerns for the future. I loved how she embraced and was knowledgeable about each topic/question I brought up. Every person I have met there has been so kind and can’t wait to go back for more services and skin care products!"- J.B. / Google / Nov 04, 2022
"I received a chemical peel with Allie a few months ago and have loved the long lasting glow that’s resulted! The peel was not painful, and didn’t need any down time so it’s a great first step and introduction for people new to resurfacing skin treatments. I felt the atmosphere was bright, clean and relaxing during the peel. I look forward to trying a microneedling, BBL, and halo in the future."- W.W. / Google / Nov 11, 2022
"Love Artisan! Recently had a Halo treatment there. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Definitely recommend Artisan Med Spa!"- K.B. / Google / Nov 11, 2022
"Just got finished getting a diamond glow and botox with my FAVE, Allie! Everything about Artisan is 5 star from the registration process, services, providers, products and check out. I look forward to every appointment. They make you feel right at home and comfortable. I can be myself and I never feel judged! They offer great skin care advice but I don't feel obligated or pressured to purchase anything they recommend! Allie keeps me looking young and even gives me a good laugh or two! Will for sure keep coming back!"- L.E. / Google / Jun 21, 2023
There are several factors to take into consideration when deciding what treatment is right for your skin. If you have sun damage, acne scars, age spots, lines and wrinkles, redness, or pigmentation concerns, then laser skin resurfacing can be an effective tool to address these concerns. In addition, laser skin resurfacing works well for patients who have scaly patches, rough texture, or other irregularities.
Skin resurfacing is not usually recommended if you have very dark skin or active acne. Also, it is important to be aware that there is "social" downtime associated with these laser peels. Some patients, depending on the condition of their skin, may need up to 2 weeks for recovery.
Medication will be prescribed prior to your appointment to help minimize swelling and reduce the chance of a cold-sore outbreak after your session. A topical numbing creme will be applied one hour prior to your procedure. During the procedure, you will relax in the chair while the laser glides over your skin, precisely targeting the specific sections for resurfacing. You will feel warmth followed by cold air from the built-in cooling system. From start to finish it takes approximately 25-35 minutes. You will feel the sensation of heat for approximately one hour after the procedure. We will provide you with a kit and directions to take care of your skin during the healing process.
What to Expect
The skin will seem red like you got a sunburn and there will be some pin-point bleeding and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days and the mend process will last over a 3 – 6 days. If you are receiving a more intense laser session, your recovery period may last longer.
All patients should reduce their sun exposure and apply sun protection frequently. For all intensities, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is vital to avoid interfering with the healing process to prevent scarring. Once the mend process has been completed, your skin will feel softer while looking younger, clearer, and rejuvenated.
