Who doesn’t want to spend time in the sun, especially if you live in an area that has long winter months? Being able to go outdoors and enjoy the sun doing recreational activities or just bathing in the warmth of the sun is an awesome thing. However, if you are repeatedly in the sun, your skin can become damaged. You can be left with brown spots, wrinkles, thin skin, and even skin cancer. It’s important to understand that sun damage has the ability to become permanent. However, if you catch it soon enough and if take steps to prevent yourself from becoming exposed to the sun again, you may be able to reverse some of the sun damage. Sun damage equals the potential for skin cancer risk. If you’ve already started to experience the effects of sun damage, however, BBL treatments could help you reverse them.

Of course, when it comes to sun damage, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Ultimately, the best way to prevent sun damage is to either stay out of the sun or to wear a UVA/UVB sunblock with at least an SPF of 30. This is something that you should do every single day, regardless of whether it’s sunny or cloudy outside.

While prevention is great, the time for prevention has come and passed for many of us. We were in the sun without protection, and now our skin is starting to show those unwanted results. With broadband light therapy, you don’t have to be stuck with age spots, brown spots, or uneven skin texture that comes from sun damage. BBL treatments can repair or reduce the appearance of damage to your complexion.

BBL therapy, also known as IPL therapy, takes advantage of cutting-edge technology to make your skin look younger and firmer while giving it an attractive and even tone. What’s nice about BBL treatments is that they are completely non-invasive. They have been approved by the FDA as a way to reverse sun damage as well as provide skin rejuvenation. Since this is a non-surgical treatment, there is little to no recovery time.

Our BBL treatments in Salem have been shown to reduce the appearance of pigmented lesions. These include the brown spots, freckles, and age spots that are associated with overexposure to the sun. Vascular lesions and uneven skin texture can also be reduced or completely reversed.

BBL therapy works by using pinpointed light energy to carefully increase the temperature of the upper layers of your skin. As your skin absorbs the heat, your skin cells are encouraged to create more collagen. Collagen is what helps your skin stay firm and youthful.

Your comfort is paramount during the entire treatment. Although BBL uses high-powered energy, you feel little to no discomfort.

BBL is a safe and effective way to reverse sun damage on the skin, and it is provided with expertise here at VIDA Aesthetic Medicine in Salem. Contact us today to learn more!
