BroadBand Light Therapy treatments help treat sun damage, age spots, and redness. It works by delivering light energy to heat the outer layers of your skin, which stimulates your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. The energy also eliminates the vessels that cause redness and reduces the excess melanin that makes age and sun spots. After one or more BBL treatments, your skin will be smoother, more vibrant and youthful with less age spots and discolorations. BBL treatments are most commonly done on the face but it can be done on other parts of the body too.
Another area of the body that may suffer from signs of aging is the chest. After years of being out in the sun, the chest may have sun spots and discolorations. BBL can be done on the chest to target these pigmented lesions and smooth out the overall skin tone and appearance. The chest and face can be combined in a BBL package to treat both areas that are commonly damaged by the sun and aging.
The last area that can be treated with BBL is the hands. As we age, our hands may develop age spots that make them look older. With a quick BBL treatment on both hands, the melanin in those spots will be reduced, blending the overall skin tone. BBL packages can be bought for any combination of the face, chest, and hands. The treatments take about 30 minutes at the most and several treatments may be required for optimal results.
