More and more men seek to rejuvenate their skin to look more youthful. While plastic and cosmetic surgeries are an option, some prefer a more natural approach. Lengthy routines involving many creams and lotions may help, but if you’re looking for a non-invasive, clinically proven solution to restore youthful skin, consider a broadband light laser treatment (BBL).
How Do BBLs Work to Regenerate the Skin?
BBLs utilize varying lengths of light wavelengths to warm up the layers of the skin. This heat is the prime inducer of regeneration. Studies show that BBLs can increase fibroblast activity. Fibroblasts are the machinery in your body that promotes the production of key structural proteins like collagen and elastin.
Not only is fibroblast activity upregulated, but gene expression is also altered. The study found that genes begin behaving like they were a part of “young skin.” This altered gene expression promotes longer-term skin rejuvenation.
What Do BBLs Help With?
BBLs can help with a variety of skin issues and cosmetic goals.
- Symptom reduction of rosacea
- Acne relief
- Effects from sun exposure and sun damage
- Wrinkle and fine-line reduction
To learn how BBLs can help your skin, speak with a doctor.
What Are the Risks Associated With BBLs?
You may experience redness, burning, and warmth underneath the skin. These symptoms are expected to be temporary, lasting a few hours or sometimes a few days. A cold compress can be used for relief, though your doctor should advise you on aftercare.
It is common to experience peeling and swelling in the weeks following your treatment. This is expected as the skin begins a turnover process.
To fully understand what to expect when undergoing broadband light therapy, make sure you have a consultation with a doctor.
