    If you are taking or have ever taken isotretinoin (ACCUTANE), a medicine prescribed for acne All other medicines you take or apply to the skin— or have recently taken. Be sure your dermatologist knows about antibiotics, acne medicines, and medicines that you buy without a prescription, such as aspirin If you frequently get cold sores or have had cold sores in the past History of seizures Pregnant/breast-feeding or nursing If your skin scars easily All herbs, vitamins, and minerals you take. Even if you haven’t taken these for a while, be sure to mention them All surgeries and cosmetic treatments you have had. While some patients feel embarrassed talking about this, the information you share can make a difference in the results you see. Don’t omit anything — even if it seems unimportant Consider important events (weddings, vacations, family pictures, etc) and schedule accordingly. Schedule your appointment at least 2 weeks prior to your special event just in case you do get a complication.
  • How does XEOMIN® work?
    Dr. Breedlove is an official provider of XEOMIN®. XEOMIN® is FDA Approved and Clinically Proven. Frown lines form when facial expressions are made as the muscle under the skin contracts. As your skin ages, these repeated expressions cause lasting lines. Neurotoxins, such as XEOMIN®, are prescription medications that block the release of chemicals that cause these muscle contractions so frown lines are softened.

  • What happens during the Halo treatment?
    Thirty minutes to an hour before the treatment your provider may place a topical anesthetic on your skin to reduce the sensation during the procedure. Prior to the treatment, the area will be measured with motion tracking technology to ensure the area is treated evenly. The provider will treat each measured section by rolling the Halo hand piece over the skin until the system recognizes the treatment is complete.
  • What does Halo feel like?
    With a topical anesthetic and integrated cooling technology, most patients experience a feeling of heat with occasional prickling sensations, but are generally comfortable. After the treatment, most patients will continue to feel warm for an additional 30 to 60 minutes, or a bit longer with deeper treatment levels. We take measures to cool you off after your treatment.
  • What is the downtime after Halo laser treatment?
    Halo Laser Treatment produces expected side effects, often referred to as “down-time”. The intensity and duration of your side effects depends on the aggressiveness of your treatment and your individual healing characteristics. Generally, patients who are treated more aggressively experience more intense and longer lasting side effects. Conversely, some patients who receive a less aggressive treatment may experience side effects of greater-than-expected magnitude. Notify your physician if the severity of your side effects becomes more than you expected. In addition, redness, swelling and pinpoint bleeding may also occur. You may experience more severe swelling around and below the eyes one-day post treatment. Occasionally, oozing can occur, in isolated areas, for a few days. You will notice some swelling and redness over the next few days. Swelling may be significant and cause some discomfort. The worst swelling is usually in the morning, particularly around the eyes. The skin will start to look “bronzed” and little dark dots will appear on the treated area. Some patients may also experience itching during the healing process. You may notice a “sandpaper” texture a few days after treatment. Your skin will feel dry, and begin to peel or flake. This treated tissue is working its way out of your body as new, fresh skin is regenerated. This sloughing skin is a normal result of Halo laser treatment; most patients complete this process in 5-7 days.
  • How soon after my treatment can I return to normal activities?
    5-7 days after a treatment on the face. (On other areas, such as neck/chest/hands/arms, or any area off the face where healing is slower, the process may take up to 2 weeks to feel smooth).
  • When will I see results?
    You will see initial results seven days after your Halo treatment, but your skin will continue to improve over time. Most patients see the greatest pigmentary improvement in the first two to three weeks. This is followed by a dermal regeneration phase that continues to improve for months.
  • How long will my results last?
    Halo results will last for years to come, but you should continue to keep your skin protected at all times using UV sunscreen to protect your new, healthy skin. Each additional Halo treatment you get will only improve the results, giving you even better looking skin.
  • How much does a Halo treatment cost?
    Every Halo treatment is customized for your skin, and your lifestyle. Depending on your needs, your provider may recommend a single treatment, or a series of treatments.

  • TCA chemical peels Pre-Op/Post-Op Treatment.
    Avoid retinol, tretinoin, Retin-A one week prior to your peel. Use the moisturizer as directed to keep your skin moist and supple. If your skin dries and cracks, it can scar. If your skin burns, itches, or swells, contact your dermatologist. Rubbing or scratching skin treated with a chemical peel can cause an infection. Do not use a tanning bed, go on a beach vacation, lay out in the sun or other type of indoor tanning. Your skin will not heal properly. After your skin heals, apply sunscreen every day. This will help you maintain results. Avoid sunlight exposure to the treated areas. Use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for several months following treatment to avoid prolonged redness or pigmentary changes.
  • LASER Pre-Op/Post-Op Treatment:
    IF YOU ARE SUNTANNED IN THE AREA TO BE TREATED. PLEASE RESCHEDULE YOUR TREATMENT. THE INCREASED PIGMENT FROM A SUNTAN CAN BE ABSORBED BY THE LASER BEAM AND INCREASE THE RISK FOR COMPLICATIONS. After treatment, the area may be discolored and swollen Blister and/or crust may form which can last 7-14 days. Please call the office if this occurs. Apply cool ice water compresses may be applied to the area for 10 minutes of every hour. Do not apply ice directly to the treated area. This reduces swelling and chances of bruising. If you feel any discomfort (typically this does not last more than 6 hours), use acetaminophen (Tylenol). Do not use aspirin or ibuprofen during the healing phase (1 to 2 weeks) as this can increase bruising. Use a mild, nonirritating soap such as Cetaphil/Cerave to gently cleanse the treated areas. If a blister or crust has formed, apply Vaseline or Aquaphor healing ointment to the treated area.. Repeat this procedure twice daily. Showers are permitted but prolonged hot baths are not advised for 1-2 weeks. Do not rub, scratch or pick the treated area. If a crust develops, let the crust fall off on its own. Makeup and moisturizers may be applied as usual if crusting is not present. Avoid sunlight exposure to the treated areas. Use a sunscreen with SPF 30 or higher for several months following treatment to avoid prolonged redness or pigmentary changes. Avoid swimming (especially in open water) and contact sports while the skin is healing.
