Did you know that natural sunlight could be the cause of changes in your skin’s pigmentation? That’s right. A natural environmental factor that you’re exposed to almost daily is affecting the appearance of your skin. And no matter how religiously you apply sunscreen or other products with SPF, it’s possible for those UVA and UVB rays to sneak through and affect your appearance.
But don’t worry—if you’ve noticed brown spots on your skin because of sun exposure, or other natural causes, we’ve got the perfect treatment for you!
Eliminating Brown Spots on the Skin
While there are several skin care products available that can help lighten skin pigmentation, there are some conditions that they can’t eliminate. Large amounts of sun spots, freckles and an uneven skin tone may be difficult for creams and serums to correct. Luckily, laser treatments exist to provide rejuvenation and address skin imperfections that products can’t fix. When it comes to sun damage, we recommend BroadBand Light therapy—or BBL™.
Addressing Sun Damage with BBL
How does BroadBand Light therapy work—and what is it? BBL is a laser rejuvenation treatment that delivers light energy and gentle heat to the targeted area(s) of skin. The heat is absorbed, which stimulates skin cells and causes them to generate new collagen. Over time, the production of new collagen naturally restores your skin and treats imperfections such as brown spots! And BroadBand Light therapy not only addresses sun damage, but other conditions such as age spots, fine blood vessels and uneven skin texture as well.
After your procedure, it is normal to experience mild redness and a sunburn sensation on the treated area(s), and specific post-procedure care will be addressed at your initial consultation or treatment session. The number of BBL treatments vary, and will be decided by your Palo Alto Laser & Skin Care expert depending on the condition of your skin and the goals you have in mind.
If BBL seems like the right treatment option for you, be sure to schedule your free consultation by calling our office at 650.565.8683. Our team is happy to meet with you and help address imperfections such as sun-damaged skin—or any other cosmetic concerns!
