Do you struggle with skin conditions like acne, rosacea, and other visible skin diseases that impact the look and feel of your skin? If so, BroadBand Light Treatment may help to address these concerns and improve your skin’s health, texture, and overall look.
What is BroadBand Light Treatment?
BroadBand Light Treatment is often misunderstood as a laser treatment, but in reality, it actually uses pulsed light. This light gets filtered to address issues like acne, age spots, and other imperfections, making it a non-invasive and simple treatment for some of the most stubborn skin issues. If you’ve tried dozens of different treatments for these issues with minimal results, BroadBand Light may just be the treatment you’ve been waiting for.
BrandBand Light Treatment: How it Works
BroadBand Light Treatment works by emitting broad-spectrum photothermal energy, which gets absorbed by the melanin in your skin. The light is then absorbed by the skin’s melanin and hemoglobin. The light also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin. Because of this series of events, the light can be used to effectively treat dark spots caused by melanin, rosacea and redness caused by hemoglobin in your blood vessels, and aging caused by the disruption of collagen and elastin production due to aging.
What Parts of the Body Can Be Treated with BroadBand Light?
This treatment is most frequently used on the neck, face, hands, chest, and legs. However, any part of the body can benefit from this treatment if the skin conditions you are trying to treat are present in that area. You can treat multiple areas in one appointment, as the treatment is generally pretty quick and completely non-invasive.
How long does BroadBand Light Treatment Take?
Most treatments last about 15 minutes, though larger parts of the body may take longer to treat. Depending on your package size, we may suggest a longer appointment time if we are treating larger areas of the body or expect to treat multiple areas. We will also provide a treatment plan evaluation at the time of your appointment, so it is best to schedule 30 minutes to an hour for your visit to our office.
