OKLAHOMA CITY - When Melody Kilgallon wanted to freshen up her skin, she turned to Broadband Light Therapy, known as BBL.

She has had two sessions so far and said the difference is noticeable.

"I didn't want something dramatic that would hurt me or anything like that," she said.

Dr. Darryl Robinson of the Longevity Medical Spa in south Oklahoma City said BBL can be used to fight sun damage and wrinkles.

"Basically you use light energy to treat the skin," Dr. Robinson said. "It targets the collagen fibers beneath the surface of the skin. That enables the darker pigments and imperfections of the skin to become eradicated."

With flashes of light for about 30 minutes, the treatment is completed.

There is a bit of discomfort but cool air helps manage it.

Usually patients need four treatments over the course of four months. 

The cost starts at $400.
