Patients interested in addressing conditions of the skin such as aging and sun damage may enjoy the benefits of BBL photo rejuvenation. This broadband light uses innovative technology, and is adjustable to the appropriate filter and wavelength to provide precise treatment to improve the skin’s condition to achieve patients’ desired results.
BBL photo rejuvenation is used to treat conditions including:
- Burn erythema
- Small facial veins
- Fine lines and wrinkles from aging
- Age spots
- Redness and flushed skin associated with rosacea
- Freckles and spots
- Birth marks
- Red spots
- Port wine stains
- Sun damaged skin
The BBL device is used to deliver light energy to heat the top layer of the skin, which absorbs the energy to target skin cells. This assists in the stimulation of new collagen production to help the skin restore itself and improve the texture, tone, and overall appearance to bring forth a younger, more beautiful look!
Patients can treat any area of the body with BBL photo rejuvenation, and it is typically used on areas of the body that have the most exposure to damaging sunlight. The most common areas for treatment are the face, hands, neck, shoulders, and chest. Patients are encouraged to schedule several treatments for the best results, up to five sessions spaced approximately three weeks apart.
While the treatment is considered non-invasive, some patients experience mild redness for a few hours after treatment. This should resolve quickly, and it can be covered with makeup if necessary. Patients with pigmented lesions may notice that these areas darken before they fade and flake off over time. The skin feels smoother, pigmentation is more even, and fine lines, wrinkles, and pores are often much less noticeable than before. After treatment, patients are more sensitive to sun exposure, and should be diligent about wearing sunscreen each and every day to avoid further sun damage to their skin.
Patients considering BBL photo rejuvenation or other dermatological treatments to make a dramatic impact on the appearance and texture of their skin can contact the team at DermASAP to schedule an initial consultation visit with us at our state-of-the-art facility.
