Sciton's Broadband Light treatments reduce wrinkles and brown spots
Meagan Didlake is getting a new look, no surgery or major downtime required. Beams of light attack things like brown spots, wrinkles and even acne. Add a dose of new technology and you've got the Broadband Light treatment. “It’s a lot of different color wavelengths of light that target specific elements in the skin,” Dr. Jennifer Walden told Austin's Your News Now (YNN) last week on a recent television interview on the topic. It’s so intense, doctor and patient have to protect their eyes. Didlake is no stranger to these type of photofacial treatments, but this new and improved version is a first. “I just turned 40 so I have some age spots and dark spots that have shown up over the last few years,” she said. The selling point is the light beams go skin deep to the gene level and help turn back time with Sciton's Broadband Light treatments, studies out of Stanford University show in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology. “It makes older skill cells more resemble skin cells of nine or 10 years younger in studies,” Walden said. The treatments are quick, 10 to 15 minutes, and can last a lifetime if you maintain treatment over a period of years, according to Walden. You'll need several treatments a year to maintain results.
