Everyone enjoys having fun in the sun and the glow of a beautiful tan, however with all the recent research on the effects of the sun on our skin, it has become evident that most of us have fallen short in our efforts to protect our skin. So after years of using insufficient amounts of sunscreen and avoiding the less-than-sophisticated sun hats, many of us are left with sun damaged skin. How can we safely and effectively treat the damage that has already been done?
Phototherapy BBL: Broadband Light
Broadband Light (BBL) is an innovative technology that allows Juvanew Medspa to precisely treat age spots, sun damage, acne, uneven skin texture, and other conditions. The light energy that is delivered by the BBL works by heating the upper layers of the skin. The targeted areas absorb the heat which stimulates the skin cells to regenerate new collagen, which will lead to increased skin firmness, smoother texture, and younger looking skin. It is safe, noninvasive, and gentle.
The treatment will take between 5 and 30 minutes depending on the size and number of areas being treated. In this type of treatment, your eyes will be protected with safety glasses before the BBL therapy begins.
During the procedure, patients report feeling a warm sensation (similar to a rubber band snap) as the light is absorbed by the skin. When the treatment is over you may have some redness that will fade away within a few hours.
After a period of time, you will notice that any dark areas being treated will begin to fade and look more even. Some pigmented lesions will fade and flake off leaving smoother, softer skin.
Results will depend on your condition, the area being treated and the number of treatments in your care plan. We will be able to provide you with the details of your treatment at your initial consultation at Juvanew Medspa.
Halo Laser Treatment
The Halo Laser treatment is a treatment that is used to treat skin with poor texture, scars, discoloration, fine lines, enlarged pores, and sun damage. This is done by delivering laser energy through the skin. This energy generates heat deep within the skin cells and triggers the body to begin healing by gently exfoliating the skin and stimulating the production of collagen.
The treatment will take about an hour to perform and many patients need 2 to 3 treatments to achieve the desired results. You will begin to see results in a week and the final results can usually be seen in about three weeks. There is no downtime with the Halo Laser treatment, but you may have swelling or redness which can be minimized with the help of your provider.
