NORTHBROOK – To promote the importance of skin health throughout the community, Halo Laser & Aesthetic Medicine is partnering with the North Suburban YMCA to provide free skin evaluations in June. Licensed aestheticians from Halo will use non-invasive medical devices to conduct diagnostic scans for UV damage to the skin, and will answer questions about skin cancer, acne, and other conditions. These health events, scheduled for June 6 from 10 a.m. to noon and June 9 from 9 a.m. to noon, will also include raffles for treatments and product samples, along with fun games and quizzes about skin health.
Halo’s clinical team will be led by Alisha Walasek, a licensed medical aesthetician with a decade of experience in cosmetic dermatology and plastic surgery. Evaluations will utilize the Skin Scope Analyzer Diagnosis Machine, a medical-based tool developed for the diagnosis of skin types and conditions. It makes use of a filtered long-wave UVA light in the safe 320nm to 400nm range. This wavelength allows safe ultraviolet light to penetrate the epidermis and manifest different colors on the client’s skin, allowing for diagnosis of skin conditions and facial treatment needs.
“We are excited to welcome Halo’s professionals to the Y for these very helpful and informative screenings,” said Kim Nyren, NSYMCA Director of Community Investment. “Skin health is a major concern nationally, which is why we recognize Skin Cancer Awareness Month in May and Acne Awareness Month in June. Becoming informed about preventative care is key to achieving and maintaining healthy skin for a lifetime.”
The Halo skin evaluation events at the North Suburban YMCA are free of charge and open to the public. For more information, call 847 272 7250.
