There is no way around the signs of aging that eventually make their way to your face. If seeing fine lines, wrinkles, discoloration and other imperfections are making you unhappy, there are solutions available. Call Lux: A Medical Spa in Bluffton, SC to discuss how treatment with a BBL laser can turn back the hands of time on your appearance.
What Is a BBL Laser?
A BBL laser uses broadband light technology to resurface the skin of the face and treat a wide variety of issues. This controlled pulsed light energy works to gently heat the upper layers of your skin, where most of our imperfections lie. The areas targeted by the laser will absorb the heat energy, triggering your body to increase its production of collagen.
What Areas Can Be Treated?
One of the major advantages of this treatment is its versatility. We’re able to use BBL laser therapy on the areas of the body that have been most exposed to the sun and its harmful rays. The areas that can be treated are the:
As much as we all love a sunny day, the sun is the number one cause of the signs of aging. BBL laser therapy can address most age-related skin imperfections.
What Can BBL Laser Therapy Address?
Most superficial signs of sun damage and aging can be addressed using this therapy. Only a consultation with a specialist can really determine if your areas of concern can be tackled by this treatment but generally, BBL therapy can treat:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun damage
- Superficial veins
- Sun or age spots
What to Expect
Once you and your skincare specialist have decided this is the perfect treatment for improving your overall complexion and shaving years off your appearance, you’ll be ready for your appointment.
This is a non-invasive and non-surgical treatment, so you can walk right into your appointment and get started. Your provider will apply a numbing cream to your face to ensure your session is comfortable. After about 45 minutes, your specialist will give you eyewear that will protect your eyes from the light of the laser.
They will smooth a cool gel over your skin just before the laser treatment begins. They will then pass the laser over your skin, targeting the areas that require treatment. Most clients describe this as a tingling sensation. When the session is over, you can go back to your normal routine immediately. There is zero downtime.
You’ll notice results just a few days after your treatment, but the best results will come in a few weeks as your body builds up new collagen. This collagen will promote healthy skin cell turnover, revealing a clearer, brighter and smoother complexion.
Some clients may be happy with the results after just one treatment while others may opt for a series of sessions to maximize their outcome. Each client’s results are different but results can last for months or years, depending on the condition treated and the client’s natural aging process.
