**A Dr. Giordano and CAMI Best Seller**

Located in Charlotte, NC, and serving the residents of Charlotte, Huntersville, and the surrounding communities, the Carolina Age Management Institute offers Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™) to rejuvenate the skin and reduce hyperpigmentation due to sun damage to look healthy and younger.

What is (Broadband Light Therapy/BBL™?

Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™) is a modality of Intense Light Therapy that revitalizes the skin, diminishes the appearance of sun damage, birthmarks, bruises, facial spider veins, vascular lesions, redness from rosacea, and reduces other signs of aging. With BBL™, intense pulses of light work to remove dead skin cells and other skin imperfections such as hyperpigmentation while at the same time, tightening the connective tissues in the targeted areas to leave the skin healthy and younger looking.  BBL Therapy turns on genes to express collagen that normally turn off in our early to mid 30’s causing sagging and volume loss.  This is one of the most revolutionary treatments of our time to reverse the clock.

Benefits of Broadband Light Therapy (BBL™)

BBL™ is an intense pulse light treatment similar to laser that diminishes and erases skin imperfections and aging conditions. It is often a preferred treatment because of the following benefits:

  • Can be used in many areas of the body
  • Fast treatment
  • Little to no discomfort
  • No downtime
  • Often combined with other skin treatments
  • Boosts Collagen Production and Volume
  • Safe and Effective
  • Instant Results

How Does Broadband Light Therapy/BBL™ Work?

When getting BBL™ treatments, protective eyewear is placed over the eyes. A cooling gel is applied to the treatment area followed by a chilled applicator to deliver the light therapy. The wand directs short pulses of light energy to the targeted area of the skin’s surface. It targets red and brown discoloration in different areas of the body.  Sometimes, even bruises can be treated to make them dissipate faster such as after an injectable procedure. The result is diminishing or eliminating this discoloration to promote more youthful, radiant skin.  It treats many skin conditions and issues, including rosacea, sun spots, bruises, birthmarks, facial veins and other blemishes, to even out the skin’s tone and create a smoother, healthy complexion. A tremendous added benefit is the stimulation of collagen. Each treatment takes about 15-30 minutes depending on the extent of the area to be treated.

The most important step in preparing for BBL™ is to avoid the sun or tanning lotions for two to four weeks prior to the treatment. As with any skin treatment, we recommend no smoking for a week prior to and following the treatment as it may negatively affect the results.

Broadband Light Therapy/BBL™ Recovery

Immediately following BBL™ therapy treatment, there may be some temporary redness for the first couple of hours, which quickly resolves itself. For the first few weeks following each treatment, it is important to avoid harmful direct sun exposure that can stimulate the melanocytes.  Skin may experience some flaking once the unwanted pigment comes to the surface so by avoiding direct exposure, you can avoid any further skin discoloration. One visit results in fantastic changes to the skin, but typically several sessions purchased in a package and completed over a few months leads to the full, exceptional effects of BBL™ therapy.
