The Subtle Rejuvenation That Turns Heads
How BroadBand Light Therapy can reverse damage to your complexion.
We can’t always help when our face begins to show our age.
Thankfully, with BroadBand Light Therapy, you don’t have to be stuck with age spots, brown spots or an uneven skin texture.
BBL can fix it all, reducing damage and taking years off your complexion. Many people have heard of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy. BBL is considered by many to be “IPL on steroids.”
This treatment uses short blasts of high-intensity light to produce younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even in tone and texture.
With little recovery time and no surgery, most patients see noticeable improvements in the color of their skin in seven to 10 days.
WHAT IS BBL? AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
Your face is what people first notice about you.
Unfortunately, it’s also a part of your body that immediately gives away your age.
Years of unprotected sun exposure, harsh cleansers and aging can do a number on your skin, making it look dull and wrinkled.
Thankfully, there’s a skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of damage and subtract years from your complexion.
BBL (BroadBand Light therapy), also known as a photo facial, uses cutting-edge technology to produce younger-looking skin that’s firmer and more even in tone and texture.
With little recovery time and no surgery, BBL offers a safe, FDA-cleared option for sun damage, anti-aging and skin rejuvenation. Commonly treated conditions include:
Pigmented Lesions (freckles, age spots) Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels) Skin Firmness Uneven Skin Texture
The light energy delivered by BBL gently heats the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates skin cells to regenerate collagen.
This process restores your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition, the photothermal energy eliminates ne vessels that cause redness and reduces unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
The machine is equipped with advanced cooling features, allowing the use of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. Numbing cream can be administered on individuals who nd the treatment uncomfortable, but it’s typically unnecessary.
BBL is a safe, effective approach to younger-looking skin. It is recommended that individuals undergo treatment two to four times per year for optimal results.
WHAT AREAS CAN BE TREATED?
Any area of your body can be treated. Due to being most often exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight, the most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
Dr. Richard Grisoli with Destin Plastic Surgery is often asked, “If I could only do three things to improve the health and appearance of the skin on my face, what would they be?”
His response is:
▪ Protect yourself from the sun (sunscreen, hats, avoid midday exposure).
▪ Get a Broadband Light (BBL) treatment a few times each year.
▪ Apply a topical vitamin A-based drug, such as Retin-A, a few times each week
