Effective and Painless Removal of Dark Spots
For those looking to reverse the affects of aging or damage caused by sun exposure, the aesthetics team at Halo Medicine Clinic has many tools at their exposure that allows them to effectively reduce the appearance of sun and dark spots.
Most light IPL and Photorejuvenation light therapies will do the job, eventually. But how many treatments you will need, and whether you will experience discomfort with the treatment (or even burns) depends on the technician.
All of these terms for the same type of treatment can be confusing to the consumer. How do you know which one is right for you? All will, to a certain extent, lift pigment, age spots, freckles, etc. up to the surface of the skin to be sloughed off. It’s quite miraculous when you think about it. For ages, people who spent time in the sun were faced with permanent signs of aging.
This procedure takes only minutes to do and is capable of diminishing age/liver spots, fine wrinkles, facial flushing, redness, broken capillaries, telangiectasia, freckles, and minor sun damage. A recent study by Stanford Dermatologists even shows that regular BBL treatments are able to functionally rejuvenate aged skin cells.
Photorejuvenation via the BBL gives you the benefits of a medium depth laser, chemical peel or other type of resurfacing/rejuvenation procedure without the blisters, burns and long recovery time. Not only that, many patients report a reduction in pore size, smoother skin, and less wrinkles as a bonus.
The Halo treatment will be exceptional at diminishing the signs of aging and photo damage. This includes fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. It will also be a standout treatment for those dealing with acne scarring or large pore size.

BBL (Broadband Light)
At Halo Medicine Clinic we use the Sciton Broadband Light (BBL) tool for age spot, sun spot, hyperpigmentation, melasma and other brown pigment concerns. The BBL is also used to treat redness, rosacea, spider veins and other red skin concerns.
Similar treatments are referred to as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Photo Facial, FotoFacial or Photorejuvenation. Other practices offer BBL treatments in packages of 6 and even more but at Halo Medicine Clinic, you will likely notice significant results after just one treatment and for more advanced cases of pigment concerns, up to 3 are recommended. Our skilled physicians administer the BBL treatments themselves, allowing them to give each patient a thorough and deep treatment, tailored to their skin type.
Heating up the dark pigment spots deep within the skin denatures them and the body rejects the cells and they rise to the surface. Better cooling control by our physician equals deeper and better treatment effectiveness. The more effective the treatment…the fewer you need. In essence, our advanced BBL technology saves you money.
