How Does it Work?
The BroadBrand Light uses light energy that will gently heat the skin on the upper layers. This heat will help to stimulate collagen in the skin and cause the cells to regenerate new collagen. This collagen production will bring your skin back to its youthful beauty. The photothermal energy eliminates fine vessels which cause redness as well as unwanted melanin which can cause uneven pigmentation. Though this machine heats the skin, it comes with a cooling factor which allows for minimal discomfort. If a patient is concerned about the heat, then a numbing cream can be applied but most people find it unnecessary.
