Restore Your Natural Beauty with BroadBand Light (BBL) October 16, 2013 Cole Are years of wear and tear finally showing up in your complexion? You’re not alone! As we mature, dark sun spots, age spots, fine wrinkles, small veins and broken vessels naturally begin to accumulate on the surface of our skin – making us look aged beyond our years. To help restore natural beauty to your complexion, Cole Aesthetic Center offers BroadBand Light (BBL) Therapy, an innovative laser procedure that sets new standards for treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles and sun damage. Utilizing the power of pulsed light energy to deliver excellent results, BBL treatments help restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. How does BBL work? BBL delivers light energy to the upper layers of your skin, gently heating and stimulating your skin cells to generate new collagen. The photothermal energy simultaneously targets and eliminates many of the fine vessels that cause redness and unwanted melanin responsible for pigmented lesions. What can I expect from BBL? BBL is a non-invasive, gentle, and safe procedure with virtually no down-time. There should be minimal or no discomfort, and you’ll be able to return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities as soon as you step away from our offices! Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin’s condition and your desired results. By selecting the appropriate wavelength of filter, your provider will be able to treat a broad range of skin conditions caused by skin aging and sun exposure. Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those that have had the most exposure to the damaging effects of sunlight including the face, neck, back of the hands, upper chest, and shoulders. Long-term benefits of BBL Evidence from a recent study conducted at Stanford University’s department of dermatology suggests that BBL not only clears imperfections in the skin, but has long-term benefits and may even reverse the aging process. While BBL technology has produced consistent topical results over the years, the Stanford study shows that treatments actually create functional change under the skin, altering the expression of genes associated with the aging process to more closely resemble young skin.
