Are you concerned about your skin’s appearance? Are you looking for a treatment that can help improve the overall look and feel of your skin? If so, you may want to consider broadband light therapy. Dr. Cynthia Cote of Maple Valley, WA, is a professional who can educate you further on using broadband light therapy for better skin!
WHAT IS BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY, AND HOW DOES IT IMPROVE THE SKIN?
Broadband light therapy (also known as BBL or IPL) is a type of phototherapy that uses intense pulsed light energy to treat a variety of skin conditions. The light energy from the BBL device is absorbed by specific targets in your skin, such as melanin in brown spots or blood vessels in vascular lesions. This absorption raises the temperature of the targeted area and causes damage to the tissue. As the damaged tissue heals, new collagen is produced, which leads to smoother, firmer, and more youthful-looking skin.
WHAT CONDITIONS ARE TREATED WITH BROADBAND LIGHT THERAPY?
BBL can be used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including:
- Sun damage and brown spots
- Age spots
- Acne scars
- Broken capillaries/Spider veins
- Redness and inflammation associated with acne breakouts
WHAT CAN I EXPECT FROM MY BROADBAND LIGHT TREATMENT WITH DR. CYNTHIA COTE?
Dr. Cynthia Cote is a highly trained and experienced professional who will tailor your BBL treatment to your specific needs and goals. During your consultation appointment, she will evaluate your skin concerns and determine whether BBL is the best treatment option for you. If so, she will develop a personalized treatment plan.
Your broadband light therapy session with Dr. Cynthia Cote will last approximately 30 minutes. First, a cool gel will be applied to your skin to help protect it from the heat of the light energy. Then, the BBL device will be passed over your skin, delivering pulses of light energy. You may feel a warm sensation during the treatment, but it should not be painful.
After your treatment with our team, you may notice some redness and swelling, but this should resolve within a few hours. You may also experience some temporary darkening of the treated area, but this will eventually fade. Dr. Cynthia Cote will provide you with post-treatment care instructions to help you maximize your results and minimize any side effects.
