Discover How Montrose Dermatology + Cosmetics Can Help Rejuvenate Your Skin
The Importance of Skin Rejuvenation
Maintaining a healthy skin texture and complexion is a key component to looking and feeling young. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments that can help preserve the natural glow of your skin to help you look and feel young for life.
CO2 Laser Resurfacing
Fractional ablative CO2 laser resurfacing is the gold standard for full face resurfacing. This is the treatment of choice for those seeking the most dramatic results from a single treatment.
Radiofrequency resurfacing with Syneron eTwo can provide results approaching those achieved with CO2 treatments but with much shorter downtime. Darker skin types can be treated with Sublative as well, making it suitable for a wide range of skin types.
BroadBand Light (BBL™)
BroadBand Light Treatment, or BBL™, is a revolutionary treatment that uses filtered light to precisely target either excess brown pigment or redness from sun damage. This type of photofacial technique is a fast, comfortable treatment that can rapidly restore your youthful appearance.

What Is BroadBand Light Treatment (BBL™)?
BroadBand Light: Intense Pulsed Light Treatment for Sun Damage
Your skin is one of the most delicate parts of your body, and it can easily be damaged by sunlight and other factors as you get older. Age spots, redness, and brown spots can cause you to look older than you are. The good news is that BroadBand Light Treatment can help repair sun damage and other effects on your skin to restore a youthful appearance.
What are the benefits of BBL™ treatment?
BBL™, also known as Intense Pulsed Light or (IPL), is a very popular treatment because it offers rejuvenation with literally no downtime. It can be used anywhere on the face and body. The best results come in three treatment sessions, but patients can see some improvement with just one session. The procedure cannot be performed on tanned or dark skin, therefore some patients find it more convenient to be treated in the fall and winter months.
What can I expect during and after a BBL™ treatment?
For treatment of brown spots, the spots will appear significantly darker, come to the surface of the skin, and slough off with normal daily skin care. This process takes one to three weeks. The skin may appear pink or swollen for a few hours afterwards.
For treatment of dilated (red) blood vessels, the treatment causes the vessels to shut down; and the body reabsorbs the destroyed vessel remnants. Afterwards there is some redness and swelling that subsides within a few days.
Is BBL™ Right for Me?
We are happy to talk to you more about whether BBL™ is the right choice for you. There are several factors that can influence the effectiveness of treatment, which is why meeting with our Master Medical Aesthetician for a free consultation is important.
Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT)
Scars, age and sun exposure can have several detrimental effects on the skin, including the formation of fine lines, wrinkles, and skin-texture irregularities. Collagen Induction Therapy (CIT), also known as microneedling, is a minimally invasive procedure that uses the skin’s natural wound-healing response to promote collagen growth.
Collagen is a protein that provides structural support to the skin. With time and sun damage, the amount of this critical protein decreases-resulting in thinner and more wrinkled skin. CIT uses a small automated pen to produce numerous micro-injuries in the surface of the skin to stimulate collagen growth and replace what has been lost.
Additionally patients can opt to have Plasma-Rich Platelets (PRP) added to their treatments. The patients own blood is drawn and spun in our in-house lab using a centrifugal machine in order to seperate the blood components, leaving beautifully rich plasma to use during treatment to deeply penetrate into the skin. The addition of PRP amplifies results by stimulating the renewal process of skin and speeding the healing process. This results in a reduction of scars, wrinkles and thicker, more youthful appearing skin. It is safe and effective for all skin types and colors.
After treatment, your skin will be pink to red for approximately 24 to 48 hours. During this time you will need to avoid sun and dust exposure. Your skin will be dry, and flake, and will require frequent moisturization. We recommend a series of treatments spaced three weeks apart; and some patients opt for yearly maintenance treatments.
