How does Broadband Light work?

Broadband Light treats the skin with a broad spectrum of light waves. The light energy can be filtered to specific colors of light to address a range of skin conditions. The light energy is absorbed by chromophores (the part of a molecule that creates color) and converted into heat. The heat generated by the energy destroys the colored area. The immune response of the body then gets to work, producing new, fresh cells to replace the hyperpigmented or aging cells.

What can Broadband Light do for my skin?

Broadband Light in Phoenix, or BBL, can produce remarkable changes in skin quality and tone. This treatment may be the ideal way to address the following skin conditions and flaws:

  • Age spots
  • Sun spots
  • Sun damaged skin
  • Spider veins 
  • Enlarged pores
  • Lax skin
  • Freckles
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Acne, acne scars
  • Excess facial hair
  • Visible blood vessels 
  • Rosacea

Who is a good candidate for a Broadband Light treatment?

This treatment works best on those with lighter skin tones. Those with darker skin would be more appropriately treated with another device. At Matisse Medspa, you can expect personalized care, and a customized treatment, crafted specifically to address your skin concerns with the best possible method for your skin condition, tone, and type.

What is the treatment like to experience?

During your BBL treatment, you will be resting comfortably as we cleanse your skin, apply eye protection, and add a clear gel to the area to be treated with the device. We then make a series of passes over the skin with the handheld device.

As it moves across the skin, flashes of intense light enter the skin. You will experience a sensation of warmth or tingling, or a quick snap against the skin. Most clients find it reasonably easy to experience, and do not need a numbing gel before the treatment.

What is the recovery time?

Broadband Light treatments have little to no downtime. After the treatment is complete, you simply go back to your day as usual. You can apply makeup. The hyperpigmented areas of your skin will darken, with the cells coming to the surface and shedding off in about five to seven days. It is normal to experience reddened skin that feels sunburned for a few hours after treatment. Some clients could see minor swelling around the eyes. You must avoid direct exposure to the sun for several weeks, and if you do venture out, wear a hat, and apply sunscreen liberally.

How many treatments will I need?

Every individual is different, but generally, a series of three to four treatments is recommended, performed at four to six week intervals.
