How to get rid of summer sun damage

When you are enjoying the pool parties, beach trips, and barbeques in the summer, chances are you don’t realize the damage the added UV light exposure does to your skin until it’s all over. Sunburn, brown spots, and wrinkles are common signs of sun damage. But how can you get rid of summer sun damage.

How to get rid of summer sun damage

There is hope for sun damaged skin, because there are several in-office treatments that can reverse summer sun damage, including the innovative BBL photofacial. BBL stands for broad band light, which is the most advanced light-based technology now available.

How BBL works

The BBL device emits quick pulses of light that precisely target the upper layers of the skin. The light gets converted into heat, which is absorbed by targets in the skin such as sun spots or pigmented lesions. This process eliminates the signs of sun damage, and restores the natural tone and texture of the skin.

Is BBL treatment painful?

Most patients say BBL treatment feels a lot like the snap of a rubber band against the skin.

What conditions can BBL treat?

BBL can treat a variety of skin conditions including uneven skin tone and texture, pigmented lesions, and vascular lesions.

What to expect after BBL treatment

There is typically some redness after treatment, but this should fade within a few hours. The treated spots will darken initially and then gradually fade and flake off over the following days, leaving the skin clearer and brighter.
