Phototherapy I BBL™ – BroadBand Light in Miami, FL
Average Cost: From $1,200
BroadBand is a new technology used to treat age spots, redness and sun damage that is evident in the face. These conditions develop due to excess exposure to the sun, aging and active lifestyles. This innovative technology allows Dr. Maercks to treat small facials veins, sun spots and many other skin conditions on the entire body more accurately and exactly.
Typically, the chest, shoulders, face, back of the hands and the neck are exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight more often. BBL can treat the following conditions:
- Unwanted hair
- Skin firmness
- Uneven skin texture
- Pigmented lesions such as age spots or freckles
- Vascular lesions such as small blood vessels
Dr. Maercks creates a smooth, youthful appearance by taking advantage of new, advanced technology.
How it Works
Gradually, BBL delivers light energy that heats the skin’s upper layers. The heat in the targeted areas then stimulate the skin to regenerate new collagen foundations, which creates firmer skin. Skin is restored to its natural, youthful appearance as colors are blended and skin is smoothed. Patients enjoy younger, vibrant skin after the BBL procedure.
BBL also removes fine vessels that may cause redness and removes unwanted melanin that creates pigmented lesions on the skin.
What to Expect
Safety glasses are worn by the patient during the procedure, and you may feel a warm, snapping sensation as the light hits certain areas. Dr. Maercks may also apply a topical anesthetic. Procedure length varies by patient, but is rarely longer than a half an hour. Patients may require more than one treatment depending on the change desired.
Dr. Maercks will discuss your specific case with you before treatment, and is proud to offer this safe, noninvasive procedure that is gentle on the skin.
After the Procedure
You may notice some redness on the skin that will fade after a few hours. You may also notice a flaking off or fading of the skin where pigmented lesions were treated. Patients enjoy smoother, more youthful looking skin after treatment, although the results may vary based on the patient.
