During this time of year, most of our schedules are full with work, the kids, shopping, decorating, attending events and the list goes on and on. All of these activities and celebrations are wonderful, but if we’re honest, it can be a stressful time. Stress and overindulgence (hello martini’s and rich food) can bring out a dull appearance to the skin, increase fine lines and leave our sun damaged, aging skin on full display in every holiday picture. Looking and feeling your best are an important part of wellness. This is the optimal time of year to gift yourself or someone you love with beautiful glowing skin.
Skin discoloration, sun damage, hyperpigmentation, lines and sagging skin are all part of the aging process, but you don’t have to live with imperfections, apply heavy makeup, or buy countless potions and lotions anymore. There is a new treatment method on the rise, and it’s called BBL (broadband light).
BBL is a cutting-edge light therapy that uses energy to target and pinpoint the skin’s troubled areas. BBL treats, melasma, freckles, age spots, rosacea, vascular lesions, scars, acne, skin texture, and tone, removes unwanted hair, minimizes large pores, and improves skin’s firmness. BBL uses photo-thermal energy to target and improves the skin’s appearance anywhere on the face, neck, hands and entire body.
How is BBL Different?
The remarkable difference between BBL and other laser therapies is that BBL energy penetrates into the cellular genetic level. There was a study done by Stanford University researchers that concluded the BBL treatment might provide skin improvement while preventing further skin damage. This is due to the dermal genes becoming more like youthful skin with rapid turnover abilities.
The procedure is non-invasive and takes just a few minutes to an hour depending on the size and severity of the area being treated. Most individuals see results with approximately 3 treatments over a 5-week period. As with any resurfacing procedure, it’s imperative to use sunblock regularly, since your skin is more susceptible to the sun’s harmful rays.
What better time of year to try BBL!
Preparing for holiday parties, dinners, family get-togethers, and events are always a little easier when you’re feeling confident about our skin and body.
BBL Treats the Following:
• Sun Damaged Skin
• Broken Capillaries or Blood Vessels
• Acne Scars
• Reduces Pore Size
• Unwanted Hair
• Dull Skin
