This is a process that can be likened unto forced evolution. It is a fairly new process that is having some fantastic results in the skin care community. Different types of treatment are available for different types of skin problems, but the process is basically the same. A wavelength of light is pulsed directly into the top layers of the skin. This causes the skin to develop new collagen and to “wake up”. This is almost like forcing the skin to evolve where it has become dormant.
To someone that is watching, the process is nearly identical is every case, but the wavelength of light will vary depending on what is being treated. There are those that have used this process for aging and there are those that have treated scars with broadband light. The process is most used to treat discoloration that has come from aging and exposure to large amounts of sunlight. The process can also be used to high the appearance of veins.
The best thing about broadband light is the fact that it is over in a very short period of time and you can return to your life as normal within the same day. There will be redness that lasts a few days and as this fades the new skin will have a more natural and even tone than before. Makeup and other chemicals can be used almost right away, with the approval of the administering doctor. This is easily one of the safest and least invasive of all the processes used to treat the skin.
While a doctor will administer the broadband light, there are clinics that are specifically designed to make the process as quick and easy as possible. A ten o’clock appointment can have the process over by mid-afternoon. There are even those that have gone in and completed their process over a long lunch break. There is virtually no discomfort and the new look will start to come out near immediately. The process can even be done over and over for those that spend a great deal of time in the sun and may want to treat some areas more than once.
Versions of the process can also be used to treat unwanted hair. This is becoming more and more popular and the amount of time that it will last is still a little up in the air. The results seem to beat out waxing and other processes and last just about as long, if not longer.
