How to Pick the Best Skin Laser Treatment for You

So you’ve read up on laser facials and treatments and you’re ready to dive in. But where do you start? 

If you haven’t already completed our virtual consultation tool, that should be your first step in the process. 

Completed the virtual consultation but still need help making a decision? If you’ve read our comprehensive guide to laser skin facials and treatments, you’re already well aware of the options available to you. Now let’s break down the decision-making process for picking which skin laser treatment will work best for your skin concerns—and you’ll be well on your way to your best. skin. ever. 

1. Think About Your Biggest Skin Concerns

Write out a list of your top three skin concerns. Think about what main issues in your skin stand out to you the most. Spent a lot of time in the sun as a teenager? Sun damage is a great target for laser treatment. Do you have scarring from painful past acne breakouts that bugs you? List it. 

It would be a great idea to look through photos of yourself in different types of lighting scenarios to see what sticks out overall. Skin texture can appear smoother and more blown out under “golden hour” sunset lighting and then look very different under indoor fluorescent lights. 

The most important thing to remember is not to be hard on yourself during this process! 

2. Decide if You Want to Get Laser Treatments Regularly

Would you be willing to commit to a few sessions in order to see the best results? Or are you an immediate-gratification type of person? (If so, the Halo Laser may be right for you.) It’s important to be aware that some treatments take a bit more time to develop results than others. Make sure you know the healing time and commitment process before starting a skin laser treatment. Some are recommended to have a few sessions for maximum results, such as the BBL Photofacial.

3. Decide Your Recovery Downtime

While none of our treatments require an extensive amount of downtime until full recovery, it’s good to note that some may take several days for effects (such as peeling) to heal fully. If you don’t have a lot of time but do want beautiful results, go for something like a Hydrafacial MD to feel AMAZING right after—so quickly, in fact, that you’ll even be able to apply makeup right away! 

4. Take the Next Step

Once you’ve completed these steps, it’s time to discuss your needs with a professional. Contact Southlake Plastic Surgery & Med Spa to get started on your first skin laser treatment!
