Effect of Broadband Light on Aged Skin

Dr. Patrick Bitter participated in a pilot study on the effects of BroadBand Light (BBL) on aged human skin, the results of which were published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. This study looked at skin on the cellular level to determine the effects of BBL, which uses a broad band of noncoherent light waves that are absorbed by a number of components in the skin. BBL is generally used to decrease the appearance of fine wrinkles, dyspigmentation, skin redness, and signs of decreased skin elasticity. The data revealed that certain molecules are found in aged skin, and over half of these molecules were rejuvenated after BBL treatment Discover More. These results show that BBL treatment can restore sun damaged and naturally aged skin to resemble younger skin on a genetic level. Results also indicate new insights into the aging process of human skin.
