Does BroadBand Light Therapy Get Rid of Wrinkles?
Common signs of aging include fine lines and wrinkles that lead to sagging skin. Years of sun exposure could make some problem areas even worse. At Modern Medical Spa, our certified technicians use advanced BroadBand Light™ Therapy (BBL™) to stimulate collagen production and treat aging skin.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Genecov is proud to offer the cutting-edge Sciton® mJOULE™ laser for BBL treatment, which produces Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) energy to create a smoother and more even complexion. Best of all, this procedure only takes a small amount of time at our clinic.
BBL can be used by itself or alongside other services to revitalize your features. So, how does BBL work, and what kind of results should you expect? During your consultation in Dallas, TX, we are happy to walk you through the process and create a comprehensive treatment plan to treat your skin.
How does BBL work?
So, how does BBL work? BroadBand Light Therapy is a noninvasive procedure that uses pulses of light to address signs of aging and damaged skin. During treatment, the areas just under the skin are gently heated. This causes the body to encourage collagen production that improves skin texture and tone.
Collagen is an important protein that helps you maintain firm and wrinkle-free skin. Unfortunately, we produce less of this protein as we age. Following your BBL session, your skin will appear firmer and tighter because of new collagen. BBL can also treat a wide range of other concerns, including:
Fine lines and wrinkles
Sun spots or freckles
Broken blood vessels
Who should get BBL
Most people are candidates for skin tightening treatment through BBL as long as they do not have an active infection or other medical condition that needs to be resolved before treatment. During your consultation with Dr. Genecov, we can assess your problem areas and listen to your cosmetic goals. Modern Medical Spa will put together a custom BBL plan for you.
Preparing for your session
Each skin tightening treatment is performed in one of our private treatment rooms and only takes about an hour to complete. Before your appointment in Dallas, TX, we recommend staying out of direct sunlight and tanning beds for at least several days. You also want to refrain from any medications that make you sensitive to light. This will make your recovery period more comfortable.
Recovery and results
You can expect some mild redness almost immediately following BroadBand Light Therapy. This side effect is temporary and should dissipate after a day or two. You will be given post-treatment instructions to optimize results. The great news is that you can begin to see healthier skin several days after your initial treatment.
The most noticeable results occur within 2 – 6 weeks of your session, especially since it takes time for new collagen production. Our team may suggest scheduling more than one session to achieve your desired outcome. We can even recommend combining your BBL with other popular procedures to further personalize your treatment.
Schedule laser treatment for wrinkles
It is normal for our skin to become dull or wrinkled over time. With BroadBand Light Therapy, you do not have to live with these issues any longer. From age spots to damaged skin, BBL can pretty much handle it all.
