BroadBand Light laser can help reverse signs of aging

Posted: Updated:

HOWLAND, Ohio - It's called a BroadBand Light laser and as the name suggests it uses light to treat skin on just about any part of the body.

"By doing repeated therapy we can lighten the signs of aging as far as redness, blood vessels, pigmented lesions on the face, also known as sun spots or liver spots. We can treat active acne," said Humility of Mary Health Partners' plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Cash.

This laser is more gentle on the skin than the other attachment, plastic surgeon Dr. Adam Cash is able to use on patients, who require a more aggressive treatment.  However, the BroadBand Light laser still changes the skin's appearance and it's makeup.

"Genes have gone back to a more youthful pattern.  So, in essence we are reversing the signs of aging both apparent on the skin, but also apparent on the molecular level," said Dr. Cash.

The laser doesn't require a lot of downtime.  Dr. Cash says when patients leave the office they have minimal swelling, if any.  And, although some spots may appear darker after treatment, they will fade.  To get the most desired look, Dr. Cash says most patients require three treatments.

"Results that you get, generally I say are fairly permanent meaning it will take you to a point where those spots have faded, but as we are all in the sun and we have exposures like that you know other spots may develop. So, it is always good to have a plan of a touch of once a year or twice a year," said Dr. Cash.

Treatments range in price from $200 to $500 dollars.
