Obvious signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and age spots can be reduced greatly with the help of a variety of skin rejuvenating procedures. With laser technology, doctors can eradicate skin blemishes and jumpstart the skin to rejuvenate itself during the healing process. Intense pulsed light (IPL) therapy sends a wave of concentrated light into the areas of the body being treated. Broadband Light (BBL) therapy is the next generation of this type of skin rejuvenating treatment.
What Makes BBL Different?
While regular IPL treatments can work wonders for common skin conditions associated with aging, BBL adds a broader range of treatment possibilities. Broadband light therapy involves a state-of-the-art laser device that can be adjusted to emit various frequencies of concentrated light to treat a broader spectrum of skin conditions.
What Can BBL Treat?
The degree of sun damage that can occur in men and women with fair skin is highly noticeable during the summer months. Women who like wearing shoulderless dresses during the summer months might notice freckles and age spots on their shoulders. Too much exposure to intense sunlight over a prolonged period of time can cause redness of the skin in patches and age spots, and can also worsen wrinkling of the skin.
Millions of men and women have had birthmarks on their bodies that they thought they could never get rid of. With BBL light treatments, it’s very possible to almost completely reduce the appearance of birthmarks.
By far, the areas our dermatologist treat the most are areas of the body affected by direct sunlight on a daily basis. These include:
- The hands
- The chest
- The arms
- The neck
- The face
How Long Does It Take?
What makes BBL treatments so convenient is the length of time it takes. Many of our clients come in for a treatment session during their lunch break and go right back to work after the procedure. If often takes anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. The number of treatments you will need, and the length of each session, depends on the condition and the size of the area being treated. We can help you devise a treatment plan that best accommodates your needs and goals.
