5 Ways to Look Beautiful, Younger and Healthier in Time for the Holidays

With the holidays approaching, your in box will soon start to fill up with invitations to family parties, galas and open house gatherings. For some people, it is an anxious time of year, visiting with people you haven’t seen since the last get together. You want to enter a room feeling beautiful and confident, but the pre-winter blahs may be making you feel anything but. Don’t worry. We are here to help! Consider these 5 med spa treatments that will help you look great and boost your confidence this holiday season…

1) The Fire and Ice Facial

This 20-minute medical facial from Halo med spa is a fantastic way to get your face absolutely glowing. In LA, it’s called the Hollywood Red Carpet treatment because celebrities have these done before any big event. It’s a hybrid treatment that combines a facial and a medical peel. The last step of the facial is a regenerating mask that nourishes your skin and protects you against environmental damage. It also prepares your skin for any further treatments you may be doing, such as laser treatments, microneedling and other deeper procedures, which require skin and pores to be clean. There’s no downtime, and the treatment safely resurfaces and smooths your skin while reducing fine lines and wrinkles.

2) Botox

A simple Botox treatment can get rid of wrinkles, frown lines and crow’s feet. It typically takes about a week for the treatment to take effect, and then you should be all set for for 3-4 months.

3) Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are used to soften facial wrinkles, plump thin lips and enhance other areas that shows signs of early aging. Most dermal fillers work to show immediate results. For our clients who are over age 50, we often recommend Sculptra. It stimulates your body’s collagen production, so the results appear gradually. It usually requires three sessions over a few months to achieve the desired results. If you’d like to consider Sculptra, we recommend scheduling a consultation ASAP so we can have you ready in time for the holidays.

4) PRP Liquid Facelift

For many of our clients who are younger than 50, we recommend the PRP Liquid Facelift instead of dermal fillers. A Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Liquid Facelift is a relatively simple, reliable, and quick facial rejuvenating and skin-tightening procedure. Many people prefer a PRP Liquid Facelift to a regular facelift because you get fabulous results with no surgery or general anesthesia. The procedure comes with no downtime and has been dubbed a “lunchtime lift” because recovery is typically minimal.

5) Laser Treatments

BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy or the photo facial, uses cutting-edge technology to produce younger looking skin that’s firmer, and more even in tone and texture. With little recovery time and no surgery, BBL offers a safe, FDA-approved option for sun damage, anti-aging, and skin rejuvenation.

Bye, Bye Brown Spots! One Client’s Experience with BBL, Halo Laser Treatment

“If you’re concerned about brown spots, aging spots, they do a great job with the BBL treatment to get rid of them. They’re either diminished or completely gone. In my case, they were completely gone.”—Herb Levin

A Walking Billboard for Laser Treatment

Herb Levin of Deerfield found out about Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine by seeing our work out on the street. He saw a man whose face looked great. Herb says the man had a good skin tone and very few wrinkles for his age. Herb asked the man where he went, and the answer was, “Halo Medicine.”

Initially, Herb came to Halo for broadband light (BBL) laser treatment, which he says, “worked out great.” After that, he came in for BBL and Halo Laser at the same time.

“The results were excellent,” he says. “It really took away some wrinkles, popped up my skin the way it should have and eliminated brown spots. I’m very happy with the results.”

Laser Treatment Eliminates Herb’s Brown Spots

One common question about laser treatments is: Will it hurt?  Herb says he experienced no pain with BBL and very little with the Halo Laser treatment. For the Halo treatment, we apply a cream to the skin, which Herb describes as “feeling hot,” the sensation of which can last for about a day. But he assures people that, “Yes, it’s worth it.”

When he tells people about Halo, Herb explains what they did and then says, “If you’re concerned about brown spots, aging spots, they do a great job with the BBL treatment to get rid of them. They’re either diminished or completely gone. In my case, they were completely gone.

“The results were exactly what they told me they would be. All in all, a very positive experience. I’ve been telling as many people as I can. I referred both my sisters, and friends have gone there on my recommendation.”
