About Laser Skin Resurfacing
Let us wow your skin with our Halo Laser at Artisan 57 Skin & Laser Center in Sioux Falls, SD. Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical technique that applies pulsating beams of light to exfoliate damaged skin one layer at a time. This laser therapy is renowned for improving facial lines, wrinkles, skin blemishes, acne scars, pigmentation, and more.
Also called a laser peel, laser skin resurfacing is a fabulous facial treatment for men or women desiring softer, clearer, younger-looking skin. Depending on the concerns of the complexion, the laser will be adjusted accordingly. There is some 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.
This laser procedure quickly and comfortably repairs skin damaged by sun exposure, scarring, or aging. One tiny laser beam pinpoints thousand of areas on the skin, but it is the surrounding tissue that creates new collagen to add firmness and resilience to the skin. 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 our ProFractional XC treatment (as it is an add-on to the Halo Laser). The ProFractional XC can be applied alone for the whole face; however, our patients mostly request it for the area around the eyes. Together with the Halo Laser, Dr. Tendler may include the ProFractional XC and a MicroLaser Peel for a dramatic combination of laser skin resurfacing and rejuvenation that produces astounding results.

"The staff there spent time with me discussing my skin to determine the best products and treatment for me. I had many questions, and the staff took their time addressing each one in a way that was understandable and made me feel like my skin was important to them too. I love the products they recommended - and so does my skin! When I went in for my treatment, I had no wait time before I was prepped for my BBL and Dr.Tendler made me feel so at ease! She explained everything she was doing and calmed my nerves. I have been back many times since and I love the results. The staff is so kind and I always leave feeling beautiful and cared for. I can't wait for my next visit!"- A.T. / Google / Mar 18, 2018

"Professional, personable, caring staff. Highly recommend. Love what their medical grade skin care products and services have done for my skin."- L.A. / Facebook / Sep 21, 2017
"I have had a handful of procedures done at Artisan 57. I love the peels and facials Kennedy performs (See you tomorrow for round #3 ?). Another service was laser hair removal on my upper lip done by Alyssa. I have dark brown hair that continued to grow coarser due to my access of waxing essentials at my previous job. It became a biweekly maintenance! She performed 8 sessions within a 10 month period. Quick and painless.. besides a mile zap which is more shocking than anything ? A pluck here or there is my only concern now. These two girls changed my ways of skin care and I love all the products they have introduced. Alyssa has also been a great addition to the team! Thanks for all you do ladies ?"- H.J. / Facebook / Sep 19, 2017
There are several factors to take into consideration when deciding what treatment is right for your skin. Laser skin resurfacing is designed for anyone who is unhappy with their general complexion. 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 cosmetic flaws. 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 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 after your session. A topical anesthetic will be used to numb certain areas where the laser will target. 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. The laser works to eliminate dead and damaged skin cells while also stimulating natural collagen production.
What to Expect
For lighter peels, a healing ointment will be applied to the skin and you can return home to recover. The skin will seem red and there will be some irritation and swelling. This should subside within a couple of days and the peeling process will last over a 3 – 5-day timeframe. If you are receiving a more intense laser session, your recovery period last longer.
All patients should reduce their sun exposure and apply sun protection frequently. For all peel intensities, the skin will naturally flake, crust, and peel away. It is vital to avoid interfering with the healing process to both prevent scarring and to protect the treated area at all times from UV exposure. Once the peeling process has been completed, your skin will feel softer while looking younger, clearer, and rejuvenated.
