What is broadband light therapy?
Broadband light therapy is a type of light therapy that uses broadband, or full-spectrum, light to treat various conditions. It works by delivering high-intensity light to the skin, which helps kill bacteria and reduce inflammation. The light also stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin fibers, which can help to improve the appearance of the skin.
What can broadband light therapy treat?
The most common conditions treated with broadband light therapy are:
- Fine lines and wrinkles
- Sun-damaged skin
How many treatments do I need to see results?
Broadband light therapy is usually performed in a series of treatments, and most people see results after 4-6 sessions. Patients can then continue to have touchup treatments to maintain the results and keep the skin clear and beautiful!
Is broadband light therapy safe?
Yes, broadband light therapy is FDA-cleared and safe for all skin types. The light used in the treatment is not harmful to the skin or the body, and there is no downtime associated with the treatment. Patients may experience some temporary redness or swelling after the treatment, but this typically goes away within a few hours. Most patients find they can still return to work and school after treatment and cover up any redness with cosmetics until it resolves. Dr. Cynthia Cote is also expertly trained in providing broadband light therapy, along with other services such as laser and intense pulsed light treatments.
