Corrects: Discoloration and redness
Maintains: Even skin tone, and collagen production
A fantastic approach to correcting sun damaged and aging skin is with a procedure called Broad Band Light (BBL). This innovative technology sets new standards for treating skin. A treatment of BBL energy allows Expert Aesthetix to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. You can achieve maximum benefits with a series of treatments.
How does it work?
BBL works by delivering light energy to your skin, which gently heats up the upper layers. This targets cells that contain brown and red pigments while stimulating the skin to generate new collagen, giving your skin a brighter, healthier appearance. It will also eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and will reduce pore size.
What does BBL treat?
BBL is able to treat any area of your skin. We most often treat the face, neck, chest and hands which are areas frequently exposed to the sun. However, all areas of the body can benefit! The following skin conditions are commonly treated using BBL:
- Sun spots
- Small facial veins
- Vascular lesions
- Uneven skin texture
- Large pores
- Aging skin
What can I expect during treatment?
The highly trained staff at Expert Aesthetix will tailor your treatment to match your skin type and desired results. The BBL treatment will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and creating a smoother, vibrant and younger looking complexion.
During your session, a cool gel will be applied to the treatment areas. Then, we’ll use the BBL hand-piece to gently deliver light pulses over the affected areas while blowing cold air over your skin. The sensation of the treatment is said to feel like a rubber band snapping over your skin and to be very tolerable. After your treatment we apply a calming post laser cream and sun block. Your session is typically quick with minimal to no downtime. In most cases makeup can typically be applied within an hour after treatment.
When can I expect to see results?
After your treatment, areas of brown pigment can darken creating “micro-crusting” and some vessels and capillaries may appear more red. These are great signals that you have achieved a good treatment. The areas of redness will fade away, the micro-crusting will gently exfoliate off and you’ll notice beautiful results in approximately 5-10 days. Your skin may require 3 to 5 treatments every 4 weeks to gain optimal results.
FOREVER YOUNG BBL
In addition to BBL, Expert Aesthetix in Scottsdale offers the Forever Young BBL treatment technique that will take your skin to the next level. It has been used with great success to fine-tune skin damaged from photoaging, vascular and pigmented lesions, erythema, flushing scars and acne. The additional benefits include maintaining healthy skin once it has been corrected and delaying the signs of skin aging.
Forever Young BBL has been proven to keep skin looking 10 years younger! This method is great when used as a preventive regimen to keep skin looking vibrant and youthful.
We anticipate that regular treatments of broad spectrum light at least 2 to 4 times per year will delay the emergence of visible signs of skin aging. A proper consultation and treatment plan will be provided at our medical spa in Scottsdale.
