That’s exactly what our Texas Three-Step is: a combination of three already promising procedures into one treatment regimen. Since the intensity and duration of each of these treatments can be adjusted to fit a patient’s needs, combining all of them together in an exact sequence and style of use greatly multiplies their benefits.


Texas Three-Step at a glance

Our Texas Three-Step is found nowhere else—not yet at least, after all, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery—and, in a nutshell, consists of a combination of the following procedures:

  • Microlaser Nano Peel
  • Halo Pro
  • BBL
Austin AccuTite

Each of these is already a great procedure for patients looking for solutions to the wide variety of common cosmetic concerns that come with aging, sun exposure, and the elements. But after years of administering each of these procedures, we saw when and where they excelled, and when and where better results were attainable.

And we pulled out the best of each to create one of the most effective and low-downtime non-surgical procedures available. 
Our aesthetic staff developed this combination as a more effective and wholesome approach to reducing the appearance of age-related complexion changes, and as a great way to really refresh and rejuvenate the skin inside and out for that coveted glow.

What can I expect during treatment?

The Texas Three-Step begins with a personal consultation to help us understand what problems you’d love to solve about your skin and complexion. Is it age spots? Sun damage? Fine lines and wrinkles? All of the above?

With that understanding, we will be able to curate a treatment tailored uniquely to you. While the Texas Three-Step always includes the use of Laser Resurfacing, BBL, and HALO, understanding your concerns and goals enables us to tailor the duration, sequence, and intensity of each treatment just to you. We can stress one treatment over the overs, and use the right combination and adjusted intensity of each so that when we arrive at the end of the series of treatments, your skin is looking and feeling fresher, more vibrant, and more youthful than ever.

Am I a candidate for the Texas Three-Step?

We recommend the Texas Three-Step for patients experiencing moderate to severe and rather obvious signs of facial aging, including any of the following:

  • Poor or lackluster skin tone
  • Uneven or irregular skin texture
  • Mild to severe facial lines and wrinkles
  • Excessive pigmentation
  • Excess and unwanted freckles
  • Signs of scarring
  • Sun damage
  • Vascular or pigmented lesions
  • Enlarged pores
  • Rosacea
  • Age spots
  • Mild skin laxity
  • Visible facial veins and blood vessels

An unbeatable combination: Laser Resurfacing + BBL + HALO

The Texas Three-Step is Austin Face & Body’s own unique approach to non-surgical facial rejuvenation. It combines these three treatment types for patients seeking the best possible noninvasive treatments.

1. MicrolaserPeel® 

The Sciton® MicrolaserPeel® is “Resurfacing Perfected.” This first treatment in our Texas Three-Step greatly improves the most common signs of visible aging, helping you to look and feel years younger. This laser peel gently removes a very thin layer of the skin to reduce the appearance of fine lines, pigmentation, poor skin tone, and skin texture.

Its three degrees of resurfacing make it the ideal starting point for the Texas Three-Step. Depending on the depth and variety of skin concerns you are trying to deal with and the goals you want to achieve, we will administer one of the three levels of laser peel:

  • Superficial resurfacing: MicroLaserPeel®
  • Fractional resurfacing: ProFractional Therapy™
  • Deep resurfacing: Contour TRL™

Microlaser Nano Peel treatment focuses:

  • Skin tone
  • Skin texture
  • Fine lines
  • Deep wrinkles
  • Pigmentation
  • Excess freckles
  • Scars

2. Halo Pro

HALO is the world’s only Hybrid Fractional Laser that synergistically delivers both a non-ablative and an ablative wavelength into the treatment area. You get the results of an ablative treatment with the vastly reduced downtime of a non-ablative treatment. Ablative resurfacing removes the top layer of skin, while non-ablative lasers simply heat the underlying skin tissue without harming the surface.

HALO is more comfortable than traditional skin resurfacing treatments, has a shorter healing time, and little downtime. Patients will see noticeable improvement of common skin conditions in as little as a few weeks.

HALO treatment focuses:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Sun damage
  • Poor skin texture
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Enlarged pores
  • Acne scars and other scars
  • Signs of aging

3. BBL (BroadBand Light)

BBL™ is the world’s most powerful Intense Pulsed Light device. BBL’s broad range of wavelengths makes it customizable to each patient as it treats age- and activity-related skin damage on the face. With fewer treatments than are required with any other IPL device, your skin will look and feel smoother, more evenly toned, healthier, and more vibrant. 

BBL uses light and heat to gently warm the uppermost layers of skin, stimulating cell regeneration and collagen and elastin production. Years’ worth of age- and activity-related changes and skin damage are taken off the face, neck, hands, and almost any other part of the body and patients typically require just one treatment.

BBL treatment focuses:

  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Age spots
  • Skin laxity
  • Vascular lesions
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Unwanted hair growth
  • Acne and acne scarring
  • Facial veins and blood vessels
