Sun got you down? How Broadband Light Therapy can help

Who doesn’t want to look forever young? Well, with broadband light therapy, also called BBL, your skin can be transformed back in time to look more reminiscent of your younger years.

Considered to be the next generation in skin rejuvenation techniques, BBL uses the science from heat and light energy to stimulate new cell growth and collagen production. The result will have you feeling more confident in no time. Considered to be the latest weapon in treating the signs of sun worshiping, BBL therapy is capable of erasing annoying freckles, sun and age spots, rosacea, redness, dilated blood vessels, scarring, and large pores. The result is smoother, firmer, younger-looking skin. 

Dr. Melanie Carreon is a board-certified medical doctor and founder of LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX. She offers broadband light therapy as a safer and more improved skin rejuvenation option for her local patients as well as those in the surrounding areas of San Marcos, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Austin, and Houston. Dr. Carreon assesses your individual skin care needs and then formulates a treatment plan so you can feel amazing about how you look.

Broadband light therapy explained 

BBL therapy employs the science behind light energy to focus on specific troublesome areas to regenerate cell growth and stimulate collagen production. The repair process fades discolorations, and the result is firmer skin, decreased wrinkles and lines, and a more even tone. Patients who have had BBL report treatments to be virtually painless with almost no downtime. Following your procedure, you will be able to return to work or your daily activities. Common side effects include possible redness or swelling, but this will fade in a short amount of time. Most patients should be able to cover any residual signs of treatment with makeup and other cosmetics.

How does a BBL photofacial help your skin? 

For men and women who want an option for resurfacing their skin without having to use a laser that burns away the top layer of the skin and requires weeks of recovery time, a BBL photofacial is your answer. BBL is a gentler and kinder way to refresh your skin's appearance. It focuses on only the uppermost layers of the skin, so there is less downtime and redness following the procedure. For those individuals who have heard of IPL, or intense pulsed light, BBL is essentially its superpower. This far more enhanced version of IPL is still capable of repairing the same skin symptoms, including sun damage and treating the signs of aging. However, BBL can reach deep into the skin's surface to target even more problematic areas. The energy used from BBL is more powerful in targeting darker, pigmented, and damaged cells. 

What skin conditions can BBL treat?

Considered to be the next generation of IPL, BBL treatments can be more easily customized and controlled. Dr. Carreon and her skilled team of medical professionals utilize BBL therapy to safely and effectively treat a wide range of skin issues, including:

? Sun damage

? Uneven skin texture

? Acne and related scarring 

? Sun and age spots 

? Fine lines 

? Freckles 

? Rosacea 

? Loose skin 

? Broken blood vessels 


What is involved with a BBL therapy treatment?

Dr. Carreon, and her talented aestheticians at LCS Medical Spa in Seguin, TX, will formulate a customized plan to address your specific skin needs. Your eyes will be protected from the laser before it begins to work its miracles. Typical treatment time will vary but generally takes less than an hour. 

A soothing cream is applied following treatment to begin the healing process. Your results will be visible in about 2 – 6 weeks after the first treatment but may require multiple procedures to work. It is essential to follow the suggestions of your aesthetician and Dr. Carreon, including avoiding direct sun exposure during your healing time. Individual results depend on your natural skin, the number of treatments applied, and the area being treated.

If you have uneven skin tone, hyperpigmentation, redness, or blotchy skin, then BBL photofacial can help. Men and women in Seguin, San Marcos, New Braunfels, San Antonio, Austin, and Houston areas with large pores, freckles, fine lines, and rosacea are also fantastic candidates for BBL. Dr. Carreon advises her patients to wait until the winter months for BBL treatment. This treatment works best when your skin is as pale as possible, like in the winter, and then only targets unwanted dark spots and redness. Our skilled team suggests avoiding natural sunlight and ultraviolet light exposure for 10 – 14 days before the procedure and after your final visit. BBL is generally safe for all skin types and tones, especially since the wavelengths used in the procedure can be adjusted to fit your unique healthcare needs.
