Herb Levin, Case study for Halo Laser, BBL Laser Treatments | Halo Med Spa, Wilmette IL

A Walking Billboard for 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

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. 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.”

Forever Young Broadband Light (BBL): A Fountain of Youth

The BBL treatments that Herb had done are also known as Photorejuvenation, IPL, PhotoFacial and FotoFacial treatments. When done on an annual or semi-annual basis, they do more than just improve the appearance of lax skin and pigmentation on the skin. The presence of genetic modulation scientifically proves that skin is repaired to a healthier, more youthful state. This means we are truly slowing down the aging process of skin.

How do we know this? A Stanford University study reports groundbreaking findings that are as close as we’ve come to a true “Fountain of Youth” supported by peer reviewed science. The study provided clinical evidence that our Sciton® BroadBand Light™ (BBL) rejuvenates gene expression to be more like youthful skin. This means that for the first time, we have scientific evidence that, BBL does more than just improve the appearance of lax skin and pigmentation on the skin. When BBL is done a minimum of once annually, your skin is improved and restored to a more youthful state at a genetic level.

Forever Young BBL™ treatments are safe, scientifically proven anti-aging treatments. The study was published in the prestigious Journal of Investigative Dermatology and can be referenced on the Forever Young BBL website.

What Conditions Can Be Treated with Broadband Light (BBL)?

The treated areas darken immediately following the treatment and then gradually fade over two weeks, yielding younger and fresher looking skin.

There is no downtime associated with a BBL treatment. You can resume normal activities immediately. The BBL can be used safely and effectively on the face, neck, chest and rest of the body.
