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.
