Skincare technology has moved well beyond the traditional dermal fillers and BOTOX treatments. You now have highly-sophisticated treatments that use the latest technological innovations like photorejuvenation.
This is no more evident than with Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) and Broad Band Light (BBL) technologies. Each of these treatments uses the power of wavelength light in order to stimulate collagen production in the various layers of the skin.
Dr. Pacheco provides both IPL and BBL treatments to the greater Millersville, Arnold, Severna Park, Annapolis MD, and The Eastern Shore areas.
What is Photorejuvenation?
Photorejuvenation is when a member of our medical team shines concentrated light into troublesome spots in your skin in order to help with blemishes such as wrinkles, age spots, sun spots and even acne scars.
Light therapies work by using different waves of light to penetrate different levels of skin and target skin concerns that are deeper than the skin’s surface.
Is Photorejuvenation the Same Thing as Using a Laser?
While it may seem like laser treatment and photorejuvenation are the same thing, they do have some key differences.
The biggest difference between the two is that lasers can only penetrate to specific depths of the skin. No more, no less. Photorejuvenation can be custom made to penetrate to a variety of the skin’s layers. Lasers tend to be a harsher treatment than photorejuvenation techniques. Patients experience more discomfort, more pain and have a longer recovery period.
That doesn’t mean laser treatment is worse than photorejuvenation treatment, it only means that laser treatment solves a narrower range of problems. We will go over if laser treatment may be a better option for your beauty needs during your consultation.
What’s the Difference Between IPL and BBL?
The short answer to this is BBL can cover a variety of wavelengths whereas IPL covers only one wavelength. Again, the difference between the two treatments are mostly technical and it doesn’t mean one is better than the other, it just means one treatment is better for a specific problem than the other.
Am I a Good Candidate for Photorejuvenation?
Most likely yes. One of the biggest benefits to both IPL and BBL photorejuvenation techniques is that treatment is very short and features absolutely no downtime. Because it’s not as harsh as laser treatment, and because it’s completely non-invasive, photorejuvenation is great for the person who is just starting out in aesthetic skin care.
But regardless of if it’s your first time having a procedure like this done, or if you’ve been tending to your skin for years, Adoro Medical Spa is ready to speak with you about how your life could be improved with photorejuvenation.

I have nothing but the most outstanding of praise for the staff and Doctor Pacheco for the professional treatment and the kindest of care during my surgery and aftercare. I will be returning soon to take more years of my face. I was treated with total respect and dignity and highly recommend all to go here and feel, you are in the best of care. A special shout out to Shelley Robinson, who really put me at ease throughout my procedure and today as well.

Heartfelt thanks to Dr. Pacheco and her very professional and caring staff. I have been a patient as of 2019 when I sought help to correct some facial issues and asymmetry due to a medical condition. For years I had felt that nothing significant could be done but then I was referred to Dr. Pacheco’s practice. She suggested a number of procedures—thermage, Botox and fillers—and proceeded cautiously and conservatively at each step. I have been amazed and delighted with the improvements that have been made! My confidence and self image have greatly improved. Many, many thanks again to all at Adoro!
