Days in the sun may be fun, but they’re rarely kind to your skin. Age and sun damage leaves many people frustrated with their complexion. Dullness, hyperpigmentation, and dark spots are common complaints. For others, conditions like rosacea cause frustrating redness. BBL PhotoFacial treatments at the Langdon Center can help restore a clear, bright complexion without downtime.
What is a PhotoFacial?
BBL (BroadBand Light) Photo Rejuvenation is a noninvasive light therapy treatment that produces luminous, younger-looking skin. Commonly called a PhotoFacial, this treatment delivers Intense Pulse Light (IPL) energy through the skin’s surface to treat age spots, sun-induced freckles, signs of rosacea, birthmarks, unsightly facial veins, and other blemishes.
BBL PhotoFacials are often used as a gentler alternative to laser treatments. Though similar, the two light-based treatments have some important differences. Light therapy options like BBL and IPL devices produce scattered light in multiple wavelengths. On the other hand, a laser device uses more concentrated beams of light in a single wavelength. PhotoFacials are non-ablative and, therefore, a gentler treatment that doesn’t damage the skin’s surface.
The most common areas treated are the face, neck, and décolleté; however, these treatments can be used anywhere on the body.
Dr. Langdon often recommends PhotoFacials for the following complexion concerns:
