When, Why & How To Combine Laser Treatments For The Ideal Benefits in Aesthetics

Lasers aren’t just for sci-fi movies anymore; they’re now a big part of modern skincare! Just like we use lotions and serums, lasers are another tool that helps our skin look its best. And sometimes, using more than one type of laser can give even better results. What are the available treatments, and how can they be combined or layered for the best results?

Benefits of Lasers

Laser treatments for skincare offer precision, efficiency and remarkable results. They’ve been meticulously engineered to rejuvenate and transform skin, offering previously unimaginable solutions. 


Think of your skin as having faced wear and tear from the environment and time. Laser skin resurfacing works to remove this damage gently. Each session brings out a smoother, younger-looking you that you’ll see appear before your eyes.


Fine lines and wrinkles? Think of them as the errant notes disrupting your melody of youthful elegance. Laser treatments are akin to a master conductor, smoothing the dissonances and restoring your skin to a harmonious state. And if you combine this with our signature serums or PRP therapy, it’s like adding an exquisite string section, deepening the tone and enriching the overall experience.

Pigment Correction

Brown spots and discoloration can hide your skin’s natural glow. Lasers help clear these up, giving your skin a fresh and even look. Add brightening peels or treatments packed with antioxidants, and you’ll notice a big improvement in your skin’s appearance.


Acne scars, reminders of past skin issues, can be improved with lasers that help create new skin cells. When you add our refreshing facials to the mix, the two together can give you clearer and smoother skin.

Using various lasers can make a big difference in how your skin looks and feels. But, to get the best results, it’s essential to know which laser treatments to use together and when.

Combining Treatments

Laser treatments are effective tools in skincare. They can make your skin smoother, remove spots, and help with skin firmness. Using them in the right order or with other treatments can enhance the overall results for your skin.

Sequential Treatments

Combining these treatments typically involves undergoing one procedure and then waiting a few weeks to a few months before the next, depending on the treatments combined and individual healing processes.

Laser Combinations in a Single Session

Combining treatments within a single session can maximize results. For instance, BBL might be used first to address pigmentation, followed by Halo or Moxi to refine skin texture.

Optimized Laser Combination Treatments

Combining laser treatments can be a game-changer for those looking to address multiple skin concerns simultaneously. With advancements in aesthetic technology, specific laser combinations have risen in popularity due to their synergistic effects and impressive results.

Moxi + BBL Combination

When Moxi is paired with BBL, the treatment targets both the superficial and deeper layers of the skin. Moxi, a non-ablative laser, offers a gentler approach, making it ideal for clients looking for minimal downtime. It addresses signs of sun damage and uneven skin tone by stimulating the skin’s natural healing. Conversely, BBL uses intense pulsed light to correct pigmentation, redness and sunspots. Together, Moxi + BBL treatments can significantly enhance the skin’s radiance, even out skin tone and improve texture with reduced recovery time, making it a popular choice for those seeking a comprehensive refresh without significant disruption to their daily lives.

Moxi + Halo Combination

Combining Moxi with Halo leverages the benefits of Halo’s hybrid technology, which can penetrate both superficial and deeper skin layers. This pairing is formidable for tackling textural issues like fine lines, wrinkles, enlarged pores and scars. While Moxi works on creating a uniform skin tone, Halo aggressively targets the more profound skin damage. The Moxi + Halo combination allows for a customized approach to skin rejuvenation, addressing fine lines and sun damage simultaneously. The result is a smoother, clearer and more youthful complexion, often with less downtime than more intensive ablative treatments alone.

Halo + BBL Combination

For those battling extensive sun damage and aging signs, the Halo + BBL combination is a powerhouse. With its dual-wavelength approach, Halo can significantly improve the skin’s texture and tone, reducing the appearance of scars and pore size. When used with BBL, which is excellent for treating vascular lesions and hyperpigmentation, it can create a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses textural irregularities and pigmentation issues. This combination is particularly beneficial for those looking for dramatic improvement in both the skin’s surface and its deeper layers, leading to a vibrant, more even-toned complexion.

Why Combining Laser Treatments is Beneficial

Collaborative Effects

When combined, lasers can offer added results. The combined effect is more significant than a single laser treatment.

Quicker Results

Combining treatments can reduce overall downtime instead of undergoing multiple sessions with recovery periods in between.


In the long run, combining treatments might be more economical, saving both time and money for the client.

When To Consider Combining Laser Treatments

Choosing the right time to combine laser treatments is pivotal. Here are three reasons why combining treatments can yield even better results:

Addressing Multiple Concerns

Combining treatments can address whether a client has sun damage on their cheeks and fine lines around their eyes. This makes it possible to address all signs of aging in a single appointment. 

Post Recovery

When the skin has healed adequately from a previous procedure, introducing another can amplify the results. This requires multiple appointments, but each layer of treatment will help. 

Before Special Events

Combining treatments can offer quicker, comprehensive results if preparing for a special event or occasion.

Things to Consider

Skin Type & Concern

Treatments should be tailored to your skin type and primary concerns. Some combinations might only be suitable for some skin types.


Combining treatments can lead to increased downtime initially. Patients should be aware of potential side effects and the necessary post-treatment care.


Combining treatments can be more costly than a single treatment, but it may offer value in achieving enhanced results.


Ensure your provider is experienced in delivering combination treatments and understands the nuances and intricacies of each procedure.

Best Practices for Combining Laser Treatments

Understanding Skin Types

Every individual has a unique skin type. Recognizing and understanding this is the first step to deciding which treatments to combine.

Prioritize Concerns

Address the most pressing concern first. If acne scars are a primary concern, but there’s also an interest in skin tightening, prioritize the scar treatment.


A one-size-fits-all approach does not apply. Each treatment plan should be tailored to the client’s needs and desired outcomes.

Safety First

Ensure that the treatments being combined are safe. Consult with professionals and always stay updated with the latest research and guidelines.

Post-Treatment Care

Aftercare is crucial. Recommend a proper skincare regimen post-treatment to ensure results’ longevity and prevent complications.

Types of Aesthetic Lasers and Their Uses

The word laser is an acronym that stands for Light Amplification by Stimulated Emission of Radiation. In simple terms, this means that a laser is a device that emits a beam of coherent light, which is produced by the stimulated emission of electromagnetic radiation. It’s of a single wavelength, making it monochromatic. 

BroadBand Light (BBL):

  • BBL is primarily used for pigmented lesions, vascular lesions, acne and overall skin rejuvenation.
  • It targets the superficial layers of the skin, helping improve skin texture and tone.
  • BBL uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to selectively target specific chromophores in the skin.


  • Halo is a hybrid fractional laser for treating wrinkles, enlarged pores, sun damage, scars and uneven skin tone.
  • The hybrid technology targets superficial and deeper skin layers, thus rejuvenating and revitalizing.
  • It combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to treat skin concerns at multiple depths.


  • Moxi is ideal for addressing signs of sun damage, uneven skin tone and general skin refreshment.
  • It’s less intense than many other lasers, so it’s a good option for maintenance treatments or those who can’t afford much downtime.
  • Moxi uses non-ablative fractional laser energy to create micro-coagulation zones, stimulating the skin’s natural healing processes.
