Find out how this unique laser system could improve the look of your skin.broadband light

We all want to have clear, beautiful skin. After all, when there is even the smallest blemish we feel like the whole world only sees that imperfection, right? Unfortunately, there are a host of skin problems, from uneven skin tone and sunspots to acne blemishes, that can cause your skin to look less than perfect. The goal of our Delray Beach, FL, dermatologists, Dr. Brian Feinstein, and Dr. Bridgit Nolan, is to improve your skin’s appearance.

What is BroadBand Light (BBL)?

This laser skin treatment is used to target a variety of common skin imperfections. With BBL our Delray Beach skin doctors can easily reduce and even eliminate the appearance of:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles
  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Broken blood vessels
  • Brown spots
  • Freckles
  • Enlarged pores
  • Spider veins
  • Rosacea (redness or flushing)
  • Superficial scars
  • Birthmarks
  • Sun damage

BBL can treat just about any part of the body or face to reduce unwanted flaws and improve the overall texture, tone and look of your skin. Areas such as the face, neck, chest, or hands are some of the most commonly treated areas with BBL because they are most prone to sun damage.

How does BBL work?

During your treatment, we will administer the laser to the area or areas that you wish to treat. The laser provides the perfect wavelength to slowly and safely warm up the skin to not just stimulate the growth of new skin cells but also absorb unwanted melanin (for those with hyperpigmentation, dark spots or birthmarks) or blood (e.g. blood vessels; spider veins). Since the treatment also stimulates new cells this also boosts collagen production, which increases elasticity and skin’s youthfulness. About 10 days to 2 weeks after treatment you’ll begin to see these skin imperfections fade. Plus, there is absolutely no downtime after treatment so you can go back to your normal activities.

How many treatment sessions do I need?

This will depend on the extent of the skin issues you are looking to treat. On average, one to three treatment sessions is all that’s needed to achieve the optimal results; however, it could take up to 5 sessions. How many sessions you require is something that can be determined during your initial appointment.

If you are ready to find out if BBL treatment is the best way to improve the look and health of your skin then the next step is to schedule a consultation with us.
