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.”

How One Client Finds Relief from Sun Damage

A Fair Complexion Can Feel Unfair Under the Sun

Mary from Northbrook comes from a family that has a fair Irish complexion on both sides. That, of course, makes being in the sun tricky.

Both her parents have had skin cancer, and the kids have had to go on the defensive. “I’m the oldest of four kids,” Mary says. “All of us have fair coloring. We’ve all had stuff removed.”

Mary started with seeing a dermatologist, and then won a raffle through Halo. During her initial meeting with us, we noticed that she had a lot of skin damage from being a lifeguard as a teen and from being outside a lot. Even though she had worn sunscreen, it wasn’t enough to prevent sun damage.

The Science Behind the Treatment for Sun Damage

“I like the science behind Halo and their different treatments,” Mary says. “They were able to answer all my questions. It’s not some fly-by-night thing. It’s all grounded in solid science.”

Since beginning her treatments with us, Mary has seen solid improvements. Last year, her daughter got married and the family sent a Christmas card with the wedding pictures. A lot of people hadn’t seen her in a while, and Mary says they were amazed at how great she looked.

Preventive and Aesthetic

With Halo, Mary has seen “such dramatic improvements,” she says. “In fact, my dermatologist said the treatments will actually prevent some of the skin cancer down the road—stuff that you can’t even see that’s underneath the skin.”

Because of the history of skin cancer in her family, this news came as a huge relief for Mary. She’s glad she’s doing something proactively to help avoid some of the issues her parents had with their skin.

“In the old days, you were waiting to go see a dermatologist when you saw a problem,” Mary says. “But this is catching and eradicating the problems before they get worse.”

For concrete changes, Mary now sees fewer wrinkles and less redness from Rosacea. She also says her age spots have diminished.

Timewise, her Halo Laser and BBL treatments have fit right into her busy life of raising a family and work. She says there was very little downtime.

“It doesn’t take that long to do some preventive stuff,” she says. “And it’s been really, really positive. If you do this stuff now, you shouldn’t have as many issues later.”
