Treat Signs of Aging with Light in Appleton, WI
While preventing signs of aging from appearing in the first place is an ideal strategy for looking young, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Victoria Moss knows that spots, visible blood vessels, and other cosmetic problems are a reality for a great many people in Wisconsin and beyond. Corrective BBL™ in Appleton at Excelin Medical Spa can address these issues and more, restoring a more youthful look to anyone bearing the marks of sun exposure and the passage of time.
This treatment makes use of state-of-the-art technology, applying a broad band of light (where the term “BBL™” comes from) to generate visible results with no need for down time.
How Does Corrective BBL™ Work?
The corrective BBL™ device emits intense pulses of light, which are aimed directly at regions in the skin where treatment is desired. Darker-pigmented areas absorb these pulses as they enter the skin, transforming the energy to heat, which ultimately damages unwanted cells and causes natural regeneration.
What Can Corrective BBL™ Address?
A single treatment can cause pigmented lesions, such as sun spots or age spots, to fade and flake away over the course of a week or two. It is especially effective on light brown or red freckles associated with sun exposure.
Corrective BBL™ also reduces the redness associated with sun damage rosacea and causes spider veins to collapse. Since they are not vital for circulation, these veins are reabsorbed by the body, leading to clearer skin free from the dark, thin lines of visible vessels.
What Is a BBL™ Treatment Like?
The Excelin Medical Spa team customizes every treatment to a patient’s unique cosmetic needs, so the lengths of sessions vary. Though heat is the driving factor for making cosmetic changes, the device keeps the surface of the skin itself cool.
All patients can expect some redness in the hours after a session, but this will fade naturally. Note that multiple treatments may be necessary to get ideal results.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Corrective BBL™?
Anyone who wants to reduce the appearance of spots, veins, and pigmented lesions associated with aging and sun exposure can benefit from corrective BBL™. Its versatility makes it ideal for use on the face, neck, arms, and hands, as well as other parts of the body where the passage of time is apparent in the form of dark patches.
What Else is BBL™ Used For?
Corrective BBL™ is effective for reducing the signs of aging that have already appeared. Forever Young BBL™, based on the same light-driven technology, is a skin rejuvenation treatment designed to not just provide clearer skin, but to alter cells themselves to keep skin looking years younger than it actually is. Dr. Moss’s team is prepared to help patients who want to benefit from the combined effects of treating what is visible and keeping new signs of aging from forming.
