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.

Recovery Time

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.
