Photorejuvenation, also known as Broad Band Light (BBL) Treatment, is a non-invasive light treatment that addresses a wide range of skin problems safely and effectively with no down time. This innovative device is among the latest and greatest improvements in skin care technology. Not only can BBL treatment repair a variety of types of skin damage, it also offers anti-aging benefits. When creams, lotions and other products don’t help improve the appearance of various skin conditions, photorejuvenation is an excellent treatment option to consider.
You may be an ideal candidate for photorejuvenation if you have one or more of the following skin blemishes or conditions:
- Broken capillaries
- Age spots
- Sun damage
- Small veins
- Sun-induced freckles
- Other facial imperfections
How Photorejuvenation Works
The unique BBL technology sends a broad spectrum of therapeutic light into the skin. During the treatment, the targeted tissue responds to the energy of the heat, which is absorbed without damaging the surrounding tissue.
One of the best aspects of BBL is minimal downtime/recovery time, meaning you can resume normal activities right away. Minor swelling and redness may occur, but that generally subsides by the next day. The actual procedure itself is fairly quick as well. Depending on the size of the skin area being treated, and the seriousness of the condition, most BBL treatments last between a few minutes to a half hour.
The Benefits of Photorejuvenation
A recently published study from Stanford University proved that BBL technology can actually change the genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble what happens in younger skin. This means that BBL technology provides a functional change -- at a molecular level -- rather than just a temporary, cosmetic imitation of younger skin. The result is an overall more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
Monarch Skin Rejuvenation Center exclusively uses BBL therapy from Forever Young BBL, as it is the only device proven to change the expression of genes associated with visible signs of aging. With regular treatments, patients' skin looks clearer, smoother and much younger. Studies have even shown continued results in patients treated 10 or more years ago.
