Pre treatment consisted of prepping skin and taking pictures… it was cool to see your skin age. Sun spots were scary, but my wrinkle results were great, and No BO##x needed yet!! The numbing facial cream and Netflix were awesome!! I let the numbing cream soak in while watching my favorite show, and after about 45 minutes my face was completely numb.
Once the treatment started, all I heard was “click click click” while the laser was sliding across my skin. There was no pain, I could only feel it on nerves around my lips and temples. I could smell the burning, but the cold air that was blowing on my face felt amazing. As treatment was being done, the skin that had been treated started to burn … just like a sunburn.
After it was over, the sunburn feeling was not fun. However, Jessica had cold compresses and a fan on my skin for about 30 minutes until I felt better. Then she lathered my face with a moisturizer. I immediately drove home, took Benadryl and 600 mg ibuprofen to help easy the sunburn feeling. After about an hour and a half, I felt much better. Jessica gave me great instructions on care and I purchased the cleaner, moisturizer, sunscreen set for aftercare, which was fantastic! Here’s a breakdown of how my skin felt/looked days after Halo:
Day of procedure: red face and sunburn pain
Day 1: red face and itchy
Day 2: red face and skin felt like a scab
Day 3: skin felt like a scab and was itchy and turning brown
Day 4: itchy skin but not as bad. Hardest part was wanting to exfoliate and couldn’t. Skin started falling off as I washed it.
Day 5: skin felt great and started falling off more. Only a few dry spots left.
Day 6: skin felt good, a couple blemishes appeared, overall, felt back to normal.
Day 7: 100% back to normal! All skin had fallen off and was left with new skin!
Thanks Jessica for a great experience!
invasive, with no downtime. I started researching the procedure, including costs. I found a lot of reviews that were positive, so I decided to give it a try. Having also researched med spas in the Dallas/Fort Worth area, I settled on Sante Med Spa in Southlake. They seemed to be the most knowledgeable, very patient with my dozens of questions and anxiousness, and were priced most competitively. My research paid off, as I am very happy I decided to do CoolSculpting, and moreover, chose to get it done at Sante.
What to expect:
I’m a realist. I know that I’m not going to get a flat tummy, bikini body within one session. I do know that the end result will bring me the ability to ditch “mom jeans,” and be able to wear more flattering clothes to compliment my newly boosted self-esteem!
When I went into Sante for a consultation, I felt like I knew it all. I had read all that I could find, and watched videos online. I was greeted warmly by the receptionist, and was taken back into the consulting room. The RN, one of several Sante CoolSculpting pros, explained the procedure to me. She also made me feel comfortable about it, and made sure I understood what my results would be. She then showed me on my body exactly where they would be applying the CoolSculpting device, and how it would shape my belly. What I really loved about Sante is that they did not try to oversell me anything. I didn’t feel pressured to purchase my CoolSculpting package there. Nor did they try to make me feel like I needed to CoolSculpt other areas of my body.
I had been to one other consultation at another med spa, and I had walked out of there feeling worse about myself than when I had walked in. They had managed to mark every flaw, and pinch every place they thought I could use fat reduction in!
Cost wise, I was getting four different areas on my stomach CoolSculpted (4 hours) for far less than I had been quoted at other, equally reputable med spas. I signed up, and since they had an opening I started that very day.
I had been warned about intense pain, pins and needles, and a very icy feeling in the area that would be treated. I lay on the bed, and a very cold, wet gel soaked pad was placed on the area. The device, which looked like an oblong suction cup, was placed on top of the pad. The feeling of the fat being sucked into the cup was pretty weird. It felt like a vacuum on my belly, but I didn’t feel the intense pain that I was warned of. I’m sure that everyone is different, with different thresholds of pain, and I may be on the more tolerant side of pain. But, it really didn’t take my breath away like I was told it would.
Once the funny feeling subsided, and I became used to the machine, I sat back and watched some Netflix on an iPad that they gave me. An hour later, the suction cup was removed, and a machine was used to massage the area. That’s it!
It’s been a few weeks now, and over the span of that time, my stomach was a bit numb, and sensitive. Those feelings have since ended, and I feel great. I’ve been told that full effect is achieved after 30-90 days. Overall, I’d give it two thumbs up, and would encourage anyone thinking about getting this procedure done to go for it. I highly recommend Sante Med Spa.
Jessica, I agreed that a PhotoFacial is the route I wanted to take. Jessica was very knowledgeable about procedures and skin types and genuinely seemed to care that I receive the results I was after! She explained that a 4 treatment package would reap the best results over time. During my treatments, she was skilled, patient and had a great sense of humor and put me right at ease. I’ve had three treatments so far and I am THRILLED with the difference in my skin. Jessica was extremely friendly and made me feel right at home during my treatments. She kept me informed on what to expect and had me relaxed and excited to see the results to come! I had a treatment with Lauren as well. She was extremely gracious and friendly. She as well made the experience more comfortable with her friendly humor and relaxed confidence… I was so happy that when my usual tech was out Lauren was able to provide the same excellent experience I was used to. Overall the spa is professional and clean and has a comfortable and relaxed feel. I would highly recommend Sante!
of their invitational parties. I have since had my first BLL photo facial with Rebecca A. I could not be anymore pleased with my results. Rebecca has been a great educator on what works and why it works as well as helped me come up with a plan to reach my skincare goals. I highly recommend Rebecca and their team at Sante Aesthetics & Wellness.
My results: before BBL on the left side and then the right side is roughly 3 weeks later
graciousness. It was well worth it…It worked with zero downtime! After having a baby a year ago I had a few trouble areas that were just not coming off with diet alone. After only my first treatment I am feeling back to my pre baby self!!! I also was in and out quickly…only an hour to treat four areas (stomach and flanks). I will post pics of my before and after. I took them myself when I came home right after treatment and about a month later. I had zero weight loss during this time which is crazy when you see the pictures (There is a red mark on before pics which is from the permanent marker they used to mark the area).
I also had Bo##X done at Sante and the results are not only what I had requested but better than I had expected!

I went to Sante’ after hearing an advertismemt on 96.3 KSCS. Just moved back from Denver and my Dallas plastic surgeon retired. Their office is a lifestyle gem. They have an amazing team and a genuine passion for helping their clients. I will be coming here for years to come. The staff makes you feel welcome and they really take the time to offer the best treatment for you and your skin. I went in for some botox and asked about filler for my lips. I did both. They even brought me back for a follow up… (WOW SERVICE) We followed up with some Botox to get it just right. Thanks Sante’ for letting me exercise “less is more”!! Love you all!!!
I chose Santé Medical Aesthetics for laser hair removal treatments after purchasing another wellness service through them a few months back & again – I am absolutely BLOWN AWAY!!
Some backstory; I had visited a MedSpa in the DFW Metroplex for laser hair removal, completed treatment, and was extremely unimpressed with the service, quality of laser used, and the overall end result… Which was basically right where I had started. After I had completed my previous service with Santé, I was explaining my trials and tribulations to the team at Santé who immediately answered ALL of my questions and put together a treatment plan that would work for me.
The staff at Santé is truly what puts them in a league of their own. They go above and beyond to make sure their clients are taken care of before, after, and during ANY procedure. When working with the team at Santé, you can see the passion they have for providing their clients with the BEST service possible and are EXTREMELY knowledgeable about every service they provide. One thing I LOVED from my first pre-op meeting was that many of the staff members have undergone procedures at Santé so they can tell you exactly what to expect – Bye bye anxiety & nerves of not knowing what to expect with a medical procedure!
If I could give them 10 stars, I would. I will return to Santé again and again!! Thank you all for ALL that you do!
LOVE Sante! The staff make you feel so comfortable and described the entire process thoroughly. Coolsculpting and injections can be a intimidating procedure but the staff at Sante are so well trained, professional, and ensured I was always comfortable. If you are looking for a Med Spa in DFW look no further Sante is the best!
I just had Coolsculpting done today on my flanks and I couldn’t be happier! I actually had three consultations at other med spas around DFW prior to setting my appointment with Sante’ Medical Aesthetics. I am SO glad that I waited!! All three locations told me yes to what I wanted done without even looking at me. I was expecting a similar experience with Sante’ and I couldn’t have been more wrong! When I arrived at Sante’ for my consultation… I was greeted by a super nice receptionist. I filled out some paperwork and then Jaylynn came to get me. We chatted as if we were long lost best friends as she walked me around the beautiful, upscale facility. During the consultation, she listened to me and answered ALL my questions. I thought that would be it. To my surprise, the nurse came in to examine me to see if I was a candidate for Coolsculpting on my legs which is what I wanted done. After looking at my thighs…she told me it was a NO for my legs. What?? No one previously even mentioned that Coolscultping on my legs wouldn’t be a good fit. She explained all the reasons why Sante’ is so strict with approving the procedure for certain areas of the body. I was disappointed about not being able to have the procedure on my legs…but more importantly I was so THANKFUL that the staff at Sante’ cared more about my long term results and health than just booking me for a procedure. That speaks volumes about their care, consideration, and level of professionalism towards their patients. In the end, we settled on my flanks, back, and arms as treatable areas. The entire procedure was fairly painless and quick…was able to get some uninterrupted work done while I being treated and I returned back to my normal work routine following the appointment. I am very fair skinned and only show some minor bruising. I have my follow up sessions already scheduled and decided to add my chin to list of treatment areas. YAY! The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and the office is clean and relaxing… I am really looking forward to making Sante’ my new home for all my cosmetic procedures…no need to go anywhere else. THANK YOU!
