Not so long ago, surgery was the only way to improve your appearance. Today, laser and high-intensity light procedures provide a much simpler way to look younger or eliminate age spots, broken blood vessels, and other flaws. Broadband light (BBL) therapy, one of the laser treatments offered by Dr. Christopher Sesslar of Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH, is an excellent choice if you're concerned about a skin issue.

BBL therapy treats a range of skincare issues

BBL therapy might be a good option for you if you're concerned about:

  • Small veins in your face
  • Acne
  • Age or sun spots
  • Rosacea
  • Freckles
  • Unwanted hair
  • Sagging skin
  • Skin texture issues

BBL can be used on nearly any part of the body, including the face, chest, neck. arms, hands, and legs.

How BBL Treatment Works

During BBL therapy at the Dayton medspa, a high-intensity pulsed light is aimed at your skin. The energy from the light generates heat that stimulates collagen production. Collagen is a protein that keeps skin toned, elastic, and firm. Enhancing collagen production with BBL therapy reduces sagging and may improve skin tone and texture.

The light also breaks up the pigments in blood vessels, red patches, age spots, and freckles. Once the pigments are broken apart, they're naturally removed by your body.

BBL treatment offers an excellent alternative to shaving, plucking, and waxing unwanted hair. Light pulses heat and damage the hair follicles, which causes hair growth to stop or slow.

Most people don't consider BBL therapy painful. As the light pulses hit your skin, you may notice a slight stinging or mild warming sensation. After your treatment, your skin may look slightly red and a little swollen. It's important to wear sunscreen after your treatments, as you may be more likely to burn.

Depending on the reason for your treatment, you may need several sessions to achieve your desired results. Sessions are usually scheduled about three weeks apart and may range in length from 20 minutes to one hour. You can resume your normal activities or return to work immediately after your treatment.

Is your complexion dull and lifeless? It may be time to make an appointment for a skincare treatment at Spa Medicca in Dayton, OH. The Spa Medicca team, led by Dr. Christopher Sesslar, will evaluate your skin and make a few recommendations for treatments that will restore your radiant glow.

4 Skin Care Treatments That Improve a Dull Complexion

Depending on the team's analysis of your skin and your concerns, one or more of these treatments may be recommended during your visit to the Dayton medspa:

  1. Oxygen Infusion Therapy: During this therapy, hyaluronic acid, peptides, and oxygen are infused deep into your skin with an airbrush oxygen machine. In addition to providing a natural glow, oxygen infusion therapy plumps and firms the skin improves hydration, increases skin cell turnover, and removes pollutants and toxins. The therapy also improves the production of collagen and elastin, proteins that keeps skin firm and supple.
  2. Science of Youth Facial: The multi-step Science of Youth Facial starts with the application of peptides, amino acids that keep your skin toned and firm. After gentle microcurrent tones the muscles of your face, it's time to counter the effects of the sun and hydrate your skin with an age-reversal antioxidant mask. Anti-aging serums and sunscreen complete this invigorating facial.
  3. Enzyme Therapy: Enzyme therapy not only gives your skin a healthy glow but also stimulates collagen production, removes dead cells and toxins, and lifts and firms your skin. Live enzymes used in the treatment enhance the abilities of your natural enzymes and improve your skin's structure.
  4. Dermafiling: Citrus enzymes and a handheld dermafile device smooth and exfoliate the outer layers of your skin. Exfoliation removes dead skin cells, leaving you with dewy, glowing skin. A blueberry and hyaluronic mask add hydration to the skin during the second step of the treatment. Dermafiling not only eliminates dullness but can also be helpful if you have sun damage, fine lines, clogged pores, dark spots, or acne scars.
