Our skin produces collagen and elastin to keep it smooth, firm, and elastic. As we age, our skin produces less of these proteins, leading to the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Environmental factors, such as pollution, exposure to UV, and harsh chemicals can also reduce the natural radiance of our skin, leading to skin that appears tired and dull. Laser treatments are designed to specifically target problem areas and are very effective at treating fine lines, blemishes, and age spots.
How Does the Sciton BBL Treatment Work?
Broadband light (BBL) technology utilizes the power of light to treat the appearance of skin blemishes and fine lines. The laser gently heats up the bottom layers of the skin, causing your skin to start producing extra collagen. The laser can also be adjusted to target melanin (the pigment responsible for skin blemishes) and vaporize it, leading to the reduced appearance of fine veins and skin hyperpigmentation.
Who Is a Candidate for the BBL Treatment?
Anybody who is concerned about the appearance of their skin is a suitable candidate. The laser can be used on any part of the body, so it can be used to treat small vessels, as well as removing facial wrinkles and skin blemishes. Fair-skinned individuals will tend to see better results with laser treatments since the laser treatment targets the pigment responsible for the browning of the skin.
When you book a BBL treatment at the Delaney MD Aesthetics & Anti-Aging in Edmonds, WA, our specialist will have a quick consultation to assess your needs and suitability for the procedure. However, the treatment itself is fairly simple. Upon receiving treatments, the specialist may first apply a topical numbing cream to ensure the patient is as comfortable as possible. Afterward, the specialist uses the laser to treat the target area, a process that can take anything from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the area being treated and the type of treatment being offered. There is very little downtime, and you can easily go about your day after treatment.
Depending on your particular needs, multiple treatments spaced out at intervals are suggested. You should see results within the first couple of days after the first treatment, however, receiving follow-up treatments will optimize results.
