Picture Perfect Treatment

BBL (broadband light) photofacial treatments work by using a dual-bulb system that delivers quick pulses of light precisely targeted and temperature controlled to achieve maximal results without causing damage to the surrounding area, making it safe and effective. Phototherapy utilizes infrared light energy to heat soft tissue to a depth at which it causes the soft tissue to coagulate and collagen contraction to occur. In effect, this stimulates natural skin tightening as the body attempts to heal the treated area and ultimately leads to the formation of newer, younger-looking, and firmer skin. It also generates processes that resurface the skin to produce more even tone and rebalance the complexion.
Any area of the body can be treated by phototherapy, though the most commonly addressed areas are those that have received the most exposure to sunlight and have suffered the most damage. Treatments to the face, neck, tops of the hands, chest, and shoulders are the most popular areas for treatment; and each individual will need a personal consultation to determine whether they are a candidate.

Each Photofacial treatment is relatively painless and requires no downtime, and sessions are performed in-office in a matter of minutes. Depending on the severity of the case and each individual’s needs, multiple treatments will be required to see full efficacy. Overall, however, patients saw a noticeable improvement in the appearance of their skin after one treatment session. To maintain effects and reduce the risk of damage, it is important to follow all instructions given by your clinician. Apply any recommended skin care products as directed and avoid exposure to direct sunlight until complete healing has occurred.
