Photorejuvenation

Pigment issues such as sun damaged, liver spots, age spots; fine lines and wrinkles that need skin tightening: vascular conditions like broken capillaries, redness, acne, rosacea can all be effectively treated through an innovative treatment called BBL Photorejuvenation. It uses light in a good way to repair and revive your skin in an effective, non-invasive, and proven way. These BBL treatments are done in a timely matter and can be done over your lunch hour.
BBL Photorejuvenation reduces and eliminates the unsightly sun damage visible on your skin. Most of us recognize this as freckles, fine lines and the larger brown age or liver spots. Whether on your face, hands, neck, chest or back, this treatment can make you look like you’ve turned back time. With an average of five treatments spread out at three week intervals, BBL Photorejuvenation stimulates the production of collagen. As the new collagen forms, fine lines and wrinkles are decreased. BBL technology improves both the superficial and deeper skin layers and rejuvenates the skin while at the same time delivering beneficial thermal energy to deep issue. After a series of treatments, you can see a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin. BBL Photorejuvenation uses a technology called Intense Pulsed Light (BBL). At first glance, it is similar to a conventional laser, which emits a fixed wavelength of light. But BBL technology is far different than laser technology. Instead, BBL devices produce a broad spectrum of light in a range of wavelengths. These wavelengths are customized to suite your type of skin and its needs by a trained BBL physician or technician.

treatment1 Before Treatment: Using the spectrum of BBL appropriate to the clinical objective, light energy is transformed to heat energy.
treatment1 During Treatment: The chromophore in the target tissue – such as hemoglobin or pigment – responds to the heat energy.
treatment1 After Treatment: The target is fragmented and absorbed without damage to the surrounding tissue. The skin surface is left smooth and rejuvenated.

BBL is a fast, convenient and virtually painless solution for treating sun damage and more, which is what so many people are looking for in a treatment. Depending on the area treated, BBL can take minutes and can easily be done over your lunch hour, and because post treatment we apply Colorescience, no one will notice any telltale signs that you might have had something done. And compared to many other treatments, BBL Photorejuvenation is practically painless. A cool gel is applied to the surface of your skin, then the hand-controlled device is moved across the treatment area. Most people say the sensation is similar to the snap of a rubber band; however, a topical anesthetic can be applied to numb the skin and reduce the minimal discomfort. Afterwards, the treated lesion will flake off and disappear in a matter of days. treatment5By dividing the full program into several treatments, the procedure provides gradual improvement with very low risk, and preserves the wonderful “no downtime” feature that people appreciate so much. Here, a trained physician performs BBL Photorejuvenation on a patient. The procedure usually requires four to six treatments, about three weeks apart in order for results to be the most dramatic. An individual treatment takes about 15 minutes and it virtually pain-free. You can resume your everyday activities immediately after the treatment.

The true test of whether or not a treatment is effective is in the results. BBL Photorejuvenation produces dramatic results in patients with sun damaged skin. Have a look at some real life cases.
