Are you tired of trying to cover up unwanted brown spots or redness? Why not see them fade away with Broad Band Light/BBL Intense Pulsed Light Therapy. The process of photo rejuvenation with BBL®/IPL Intense Pulsed Light, or Photofacial, uses multiple wavelengths of light energy to target and remove melanin or brown spots and hemoglobin, or redness from damaged blood vessels. The pulsed energy spares the surface of your skin and reaches the deeper layers where it also stimulates collagen production and skin tightening. Dr. Catherine Fisher is a facial rejuvenation expert and offers BBL®/IPL technology, the number one treatment for skin rejuvenation. Contact Dr. Fisher of Fisher Medical & Aesthetics Center in Peoria, Arizona to schedule your BBL/Intense Pulsed Light treatment today.

BBL®/IPL Photorejuvenation Q & A

What skin conditions are best treated with BBL/Intense Pulsed Light and where on the body are they effective?

BBL/Intense Pulsed Light is the perfect choice for a broad range of conditions that occur from sun damage and aging. Some of these conditions include:

  • Brown spots
  • Pigmented lesions
  • Redness or rosacea
  • Vascular lesions
  • Fine lines
  • Skin laxity
  • Large pores

Since this process reaches targets in different layers and depths of the skin without damaging the surface, treatments result in a restored, clearer, more youthful complexion with no downtime.  

The individual patient’s condition and skin type determine the specific energy and wavelengths used and the number of treatments needed for maximum results. BBL/Intense Pulsed Light is effective anywhere on the body, with the most commonly treated areas being the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms.

What do BBL/Intense Pulsed Light or Photofacial treatments involve?

Sessions take approximately 30 minutes per area treated and, with topical anesthesia and appropriate cooling, there’s minimal or no discomfort.

Mild redness and a hot, sunburned feeling are common immediately after treatment, but this typically only lasts for a few hours and is quickly relieved by applying a cool compress and moisturizing sunblock.

The treated areas of redness fade almost instantly, brown spots appear darker, resembling speckles under the skin for several days and then disappearing naturally.

The skin texture, fine lines, and pore size improve gradually over two to three weeks due to collagen contraction and new collagen production. A series of three to five treatments achieve the best results.

How long do the benefits of BBL®/Intense Pulsed Light treatment last? Will my skin be truly rejuvenated?

The idea of reversing aging by restoring and maintaining the quality of young skin has been the goal of non-invasive, cosmetic dermatology for decades.

Finally, as confirmed by a Stanford University study of the effects of BBL®/Intense Pulsed Light on skin cells, we have scientific evidence that repeated treatments using BBL® energy promotes increased genetic activity in the ‘turn on’ genes of youthful skin.

Now you can restore and maintain youthful skin with the energy of BBL®/Intense Pulsed Light and SkinTyte®/Skin Tightening treatments. Call today or book your appointment with Dr. Fisher online and keep your skin forever young!
