BroadBand Light Therapy
Adults of any age can be plagued by skin issues such as uneven skin texture, loose skin, or age spots. While there are many home remedy options available at your local grocery or drugstore, you’ll never be able to fully treat your skin problems, if at all, with normal creams and ointments. If you are looking for something stronger that can produce stunning results, maybe it’s time to look at one of the latest advancements in cosmetic skin treatment: Light. Not just any light of course, but a concentrated wavelength that can target the problem and heal your skin from the inside out.
Pure by Alpha Dermatology strives to provide our BroadBand Light Therapy for patients in New Hope, Sellersville, PA, and surrounding areas with the best results of smoother and clearer skin. If you are having issues with your skin and feel this treatment could be helpful, please keep reading below to find out if you’re a good candidate and learn more about the process.
What Is BroadBand Light Therapy
BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL) is a non-surgical procedure that uses light energy to gently heat the upper layers of your skin. When the targeted areas absorb the heat, the reaction stimulates your skin cell regeneration, eventually providing your skin with smoother, clearer, more vibrant skin which in turn rejuvenates your appearance.
BBL is most often used to treat the following conditions:
- Age Spots
- Brown spots from sun damage
- Hair Reduction
- Loose Skin
- Uneven skin texture
- Vascular lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)

Awesome office staff and Carly, Drew and Dr Shrager are phenomenal! Highly recommend. My appointment this time was with Carly and I couldn’t be happier. Very professional, knowledgeable and you can tell she really knows what she’s doing. Alpha Derm is the best!
The results were amazing. I strongly believe that a good filler job means you can’t spot a filler job and she nailed it. I look like me, but more refreshed and younger!
Love the place! The team is wonderful, skilled and very calming. Dr. Shrager is my favorite! Oh, and the renovation looks amazing!
