What is BroadBand Light Therapy?
BroadBand Light (BBL) therapy can improve the aesthetics of your skin by helping it appear younger and smoother. We use BBL at Xage Medical Spa as a facial skin therapy to create a more even and smooth skin texture. The therapeutic light energy that gently warms the skin can also stimulate collagen production. Patients with an array of skin conditions may benefit from BBL, as it functions to fade out unwanted freckles, rosacea, broken blood vessels, and sun damage. Our BBL is an aesthetic treatment that can be added to other services we offer to meet your skincare goals. At Xage Medical Spa in Provo, UT, we offer BBL to patients at the recommendation of our board-certified physician, Dr. Stuart B. Porter. Call for a consultation today.

"I just finished my 3rd and last Femilift treatment a week and half ago. For all you women that have a weakening bladder, I STONGLY recommend this treatment. I had a hysterectomy, including removal of my cervix about 12 years ago. Since I no longer have those parts to help keep things in their place, I gradually noticed several changes. I was that woman that couldn’t multitask with a sneeze, cough, laugh or even clear my throat while walking. I am proud to report that this is no longer a problem. Dr. Porter recommended this procedure and now here I am, multitasking like a pro. I noticed some improvement a couple weeks after the first treatment, the most improvement after the second treatment and the last treatment just sealed the deal, literally. An unexpected outcome is one I am super happy about. I have been plagued with recurring bladder infections for years. I haven’t had a bladder infection since the first treatment 3 months ago. Though I am purely speculating, I feel this is directly related to the Femilift treatments. It makes sense. Before the treatments, I had a weak sense of when my bladder was full, therefore my bladder would be full for awhile before I would get the intense urge. After several times, my bladder would just be irritated and I would end up with an infection. I lived on AZO and cranberry to try and manage some comfort. Now, my pelvic floor is stronger and I can can sense my full bladder sooner, which I now visit the restroom way more often. At first this was annoying, but now that I realize I am sensing things like I should and I haven’t had anymore irritation or infections, I’ll take it. Now ladies, and partners of those ladies considering Femilift, let’s talk sex. Since this treatment involves a laser inserted into the vagina, and it strengthens and tightens the urethra, it makes sense that it tightens the vagina as well. Big bonus. Not only have I noticed tightening, but more lubrication and sensitivity (the good kind, not the painful kind). If I just scared you away because I mentioned something being inserted into your vagina and then a laser zapping away, bear with me. 1. The laser has a comfortable width. 2. It has a sheath cover that is only yours and kept on site so you don’t have to remember to bring it with you. 3. The only time you feel any discomfort is when the they are treating the opening of the vagina since there are many more nerve endings there. For me this felt like an intense moment during a bladder infection, but the sensation immediately ceased when the treatment was over. 4. The entirety of each treatment only takes about 10 minutes. The consult and prep takes more time than the actual treatment. Finally, let’s talk about the cost. This isn’t covered by insurance, but when compared to the downtime, recovery and risk of infection of surgery, this is way worth it. Xage Medical spa was offering a promotion at the time of my consultation, which I was able to get a discount. But, I would have paid full price. The staff was very welcoming, knowledgeable and accommodating. They know what they are doing and how to provide a great experience and results."- T.H. / Google / Dec 30, 2019

BroadBand Light Therapy Ideal Candidates
A great candidate for BBL is anyone who has hyperpigmentation or unevenly textured skin. These symptoms could be caused by acne, sun damage, damaged capillaries, or rosacea. BBL can also help to make the skin appear more youthful by initiating the production of collagen. Your sessions of BBL can be used as a treatment and/or maintenance regimen for a variety of skin conditions. Prior to undergoing treatment, we will help you understand how BBL technology may help you.
How Does BBL Work?
After creating a suitable treatment plan, the settings of the BBL device will be adjusted to fit your unique needs. Before starting the therapy, your eyes will be protected with eyelid shields. We will then lightly pass the handpiece over your skin while focusing on the treatment sites. The amount of time needed for your therapy will change depending upon the skin condition and whether any other services were included in the BBL treatment. This treatment ordinarily takes about one hour or less.
What to Expect with BroadBand Light Therapy
Following the BBL therapy, a soothing serum may be applied to your skin. Our team may also offer post-treatment care directions. You will need to limit your exposure to the sun after BBL. Your skin will be highly sensitive to sunlight. Most of our patients are able to return to their regular daily routine. Results from BBL may be noticed in 2 – 6 weeks following the first treatment, but the best results will be seen after repeat BBL sessions. We will make a recommendation on the number of BBL sessions you will need to achieve your desired outcome.
