What Is Broad Band Light Photorejuvenation?
Broad band light photorejuvenation is a procedure that involves advanced dual lamp technology in order to
heat the upper layers of the skin. When the heat is absorbed by the skin
cells, they start stimulating the production of new collagen. Collagen
helps create healthy, younger-looking skin. There are a variety of skin
conditions that can be treated with photorejuvenation, including birth
marks, melasma, broken capillaries and age spots. Furthermore, a broad
range of wavelengths can be used to treat the skin.
Areas of the Body That Can Be Treated
Broad band light
photorejuvenation can be used on any area of the body. However, people typically get this
treatment performed on the areas of the body that are frequently exposed
to the sun. The neck, face, back of the hands, shoulders and chest are
some of the areas that are often treated with broad band light photorejuvenation.
What to Expect
You will have to wear eye protection during this procedure. When the light
hits your skin, you may experience a burning sensation. Keep in mind that
you can get a topical anesthetic in order to minimize the pain of your
procedure. The amount of time that it takes to perform broad band light
photorejuvenation can vary depending on the size of the area being treated.
After your treatment, you may experience some swelling, redness and bruising
in the treatment area. These side effects will typically go away within
a few hours. You may also experience some flaking, but that will typically
go away within a days.
Because broad band light photorejuvenation is a non-invasive procedure,
the recovery time is very brief. Most people will be able to return to
work and their normal activities shortly after their procedure. It is
important to note that your skin will be very sensitive to the soon after
you get this treatment. That is why you will need to wear sunscreen.
How Many Treatments Will I Need?
The number of treatments needed can vary from patient to patient. The problem
being treated and the areas being treated are two of the factors that
determine how many treatments a person will need. During your consultation,
we will review the treatment process in depth, and determine the most
effective treatment plan for your needs. We can customize a treatment
schedule that is tailored to your skin and the issues you'd like to correct.
