Laser Skin Resurfacing Q&A

What is laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing uses concentrated beams of light to improve your skin and treat minor flaws. Whether you’re looking to reduce wrinkles and scarring or improve the overall complexion of your skin, laser skin resurfacing may be right for you. 


At Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre, the team of professional estheticians specialize in providing laser skin resurfacing. Their primary method of treatment is called Halo®


A Halo treatment targets skin damage and visible signs of aging, improving your overall tone and texture. Halo also significantly removes discoloration, reduces the appearance of fine lines, and minimizes pore size.


What are the benefits of laser skin resurfacing?

With several skin care treatments available, Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre will discuss your desires and help you achieve your goals. Offering several benefits, the team may recommend laser skin resurfacing to improve your complexion and promote younger-looking skin. 

Benefits of laser skin resurfacing include:

  • Smoother complexion
  • Reduced wrinkles
  • Reduced brown spots on skin
  • Improved acne scars and surgical scars
  • Improved tone and texture

With immediate and progressive results, laser skin resurfacing, like Halo, provides effective treatment for those looking to heal damaged skin and rebuild their confidence.

How does laser skin resurfacing work?

When you come into Cascade Medspa & Laser Centre for laser skin resurfacing, the team creates a customized treatment plan to ensure they meet your goals. Once you’re prepared to begin the treatment, the team cleanses your skin and applies a topical anesthetic ointment to the treatment area 30 minutes before the procedure starts. 

Once the anesthetic is set, and your provider places safety shields on your eyes, they use the Halo handpiece to divide the treatment areas of your face into five sections. After this, they roll the Halo across your skin in a crisscross pattern, ensuring you feel comfortable. 

The procedure typically takes 20-25 minutes, with a recovery time of 2-3 days. You should expect your skin to look red and feel warm to the touch after the treatment. However, these symptoms should diminish within 24 hours. Following your recovery, your skin will feel noticeably softer, and your skin tone will look smooth and even. 


What is it like to recover from Halo skin resurfacing?

Following Halo treatment, it’s normal to experience redness, which increases in intensity for the first few days after treatment. Day three is the most intense. Many patients also experience swelling after treatment, usually on days two and three. 

Expect the redness and an uneven skin texture to linger for up to seven days, depending on the intensity of your treatment. 

Following your recovery, your skin will feel noticeably softer, and your skin tone will look smooth and even.

What is it like to undergo ProFractional or MicroLaserPeels?

Your ProFractional laser treatment delivers highly targeted laser energy into your skin by creating microchannels that target skin damage. Though you may be sensitive to the sun and have skin peeling, you should be back to social activities within a few days and your daily work routine within seven days. The total recovery time can take about 6-12 months for effects to be seen.


Choose a MicroLaserPeel if you have mild to moderate wrinkling. The restorative treatment uses advanced erbium laser technology to remove the outer layer of skin, replacing old skin cells with new, healthy, refreshed ones. It requires just a few hours of downtime, and you should see noticeable results within weeks.
