Looking for a softer, smoother complexion without unsightly cosmetic concerns, including sun damage, age spots, redness, and more? Phototherapy at evolv Medical Aesthetics incorporates BroadBand Light technology to non-surgically improve premature signs of aging, and restore youthful, healthy skin.
What is BroadBand Light (BBL™)?
BroadBand Light, or BBL, energy allows our skin experts to precisely target your most troubling areas. It effectively treats age and sun spots, facial veins and many other conditions. Depending on the area, amount, and extent of the treatment, your BBL phototherapy will be tailored to match your specific skin type and cosmetic goals.
How does BBL work?
BBL delivers focused light energy to the treatment areas. This energy gently heats the epidermis or upper layers of your skin. It is then absorbed, increasing natural collagen production to naturally regenerate your skin. This procedure rejuvenates skin to its naturally beautiful tone, providing a vibrant, smoother, and younger-looking complexion.
What can BBL Phototherapy treat?
BBL Phototherapy can be used on any area of your body. The most common areas are those that are typically exposed to damaging sun rays, such as your face, neck, chest, arms, and hands. The following skin conditions see the most improvement with this treatment:
- Pigmented lesions, such as age spots, brown spots, freckles, etc.
- Small blood vessels, facial veins
- Skin firmness
- Uneven skin texture
What to Expect with BBL Phototherapy
During your BBL Phototherapy skin rejuvenating treatment, your eyes will be protected with glasses and a topical anesthetic cream will be used if needed to improve your comfort. As the light energy is absorbed by your skin, you may feel a quick, warm “rubber band snap” feeling on your skin’s surface. Procedure time will vary depending on the size and amount of areas needing treatment. BBL Phototherapy is a well-tolerable treatment, and very safe for those patients that desire it.
What to Expect After BBL Phototherapy
After treatment, you may notice some redness, which will heal within a few hours. You may also notice that pigmented lesions darken, followed by fading and flaking off the epidermis, revealing newer skin. This non-invasive procedure comes with virtually no downtime, where you can return to daily activities and apply makeup right after treatment.
Most importantly, after BBL Phototherapy, you will begin to see visible improvement and reduction in the signs of aging in the skin. The treated area will feel smoother, with an improved complexion, and a reduction in fine lines and pores.
