BBL Phototherapy Skin Treatment For Brown Spots and Age Spots
What It Is
Sciton’s Forever Young Broadband Light – BBL Phototherapy Skin Treatment is for “brown spots” such as sun spots and age spots. Pigmented lesions such as freckles, sun damage, and age spots can be treated through BBL as it gently heats the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate new collagen. This process restores skin to its natural beauty by blending natural colors, making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking.
Any area of your body may be treated with BBL but the most common areas are those that have been most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. Most popular areas treated are face, neck, back of hands, chest, and shoulders. The number of treatments is determined by your desired level of improvement and the extent or severity of damage.
How It Works
For this procedure, your eyes will be protected. There may be a warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the target areas. The treatment is gentle, noninvasive and safe. After the treatment, you may have some redness which will resolve quickly. On the treatment of brown pigmentations, you will see a darkening of the treated areas which will be following fading and flaking at a later stage. Immediately after your treatment in most cases, you will be able to go back to work, apply makeup and resume most activities.
Aftercare includes cautions about exposure to direct sunlight and ultraviolet light. It is recommended that until completely healed, when outdoors, you should fully cover your skin or use a strong sunscreen.
As a person with really fair skin I was finding that the one place my age was really showing was my hands! That was why my first treatment with BBL for brown age spots was the back of my hands. I invite you to come see for yourself. As always, a consultation to discuss your specific condition is always offered at no charge.
