What Areas on the Body Can Be Treated With BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL)?
BroadBand Light therapy (BBL) is a unique treatment that uses light energy to improve sun damage, hyperpigmentation, and other common signs of aging. While board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Phillip Dauwe often recommends BBL for mild to moderate imperfections on the face, we can treat a variety of body areas, like the neck, hands, chest, shoulders, and back.
BBL is a noninvasive and versatile treatment for Dallas patients who are interested in gorgeous skin. Call Phillip Dauwe, M.D. Plastic Surgery to learn more about which areas can be addressed with BBL and what you can expect from our personalized process.
How is BroadBand Light therapy personalized?
The first step in creating a plan for BroadBand Light therapy is to assess any areas that need attention. Dr. Dauwe will evaluate the severity of your skin issues and ask about your treatment goals during a consultation. We then make tailored recommendations based on your needs. Here is how we personalize BroadBand Light therapy for patients:
Intensity: We can adjust the amount of energy used during BroadBand Light to maximize results and minimize unwanted side effects.
Frequency: The number of sessions needed will be determined by the areas being treated and the severity of your skin concerns.
Complementary treatments: Dr. Dauwe may recommend additional procedures to enhance your results.
What areas do you treat with BBL?
As we mentioned, BroadBand Light therapy can be used to improve skin nearly anywhere on the body. BBL is perfect for places frequently exposed to UV rays to address issues like sun damage and hyperpigmentation. Here are some popular body areas that our patients in Dallas have treated:
Face: The face is often the first place to show undesirable signs of aging. Treatment with BBL can enhance your overall facial complexion.
Neck: The skin on the neck is thinner and more delicate than other body areas, making it more susceptible to sun damage. Dr. Dauwe can help you achieve a more youthful neckline.
Chest: The chest is another area where hyperpigmentation can be very visible. We often recommend BroadBand Light therapy to keep your upper body looking vibrant.
Shoulders: Your shoulders are a hotspot for sun damage. BBL can make your skin appear brighter and more even-toned, so you feel more confident showing off this area.
Back: It can be hard to reach your back to apply sunscreen, making the back a common area for hyperpigmentation and dark spots. BBL targets hard-to-reach areas for a more rejuvenated look.
Is BBL safe for all skin types?
Some people with darker skin tones are concerned that BroadBand Light therapy will damage their complexion. However, BBL uses different wavelengths of light to work. These wavelengths can be adjusted to suit your particular needs and skin tone. Dr. Dauwe will also provide detailed instructions on how to care for your skin before and after treatment for the safest outcomes possible.
