Dr. Baron Educates Other Doctors at Local Hospital on Risks of UV Exposure

As both a medical and procedural dermatologist, Dr. Baron's focus is treatment and reversal of skin and collagen damage stemming from overexposure to the sun. Last fall, she was invited to present her educational lecture to Stanford University Family Practice residents and other doctors and nurses at O'Connor Hospital in San Jose.  Her presentation, entitled "UV-A's, B's, and C's," provided a specialist's perspective on effective protection from and cosequences of too much ultraviolet sun radiation.

Many Skin Discolorations Are Successfully Treatable with Broadband Light Therapy

BroadBand Light (BBL) technology utilizes the power of intense visible light to reduce pigment caused by sun damage (brown spots and "spider veins"), birth marks ("port wine stains"), scars (surgical and from injury), and stretch marks. By selecting the appropriate light wavelength, I treat a wide range of skin conditions.


Broadband Light therapy (BBL) for Treatment of Skin Discoloration, Sun-Damage Spots, Scars, Birthmarks, and Acne on Face, Hands & Body

Perhaps the safest and most effective non-invasive treatments available today for dramatic improvement of sun-damaged or rosacea-prone skin, the Sciton BBL phototherapy device stands alone amongst other laser and light therapy devices.  With no downtime, reasonable cost, minimal discomfort and significant results even after a single treatment, the BBL treatment is a gem for the safe rejuvenation of aged or damaged skin.




The light energy delivered by the BBL gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas stimulates the skin cells to generate new collagen, causing a slight tightening (toning) effect. This process helps restore the skin to its natural state as the photothermal energy targets and eliminates tiny broken capillaries and excess brown pigment (melanin).

Patient Testimonials


5  I highly recommend Miss Jennifer Baron! She takes the time to address my needs, listens, and explains procedures. When I leave her office I feel good (and my skin feels great!) She truely cares about her patients. And everyone who works in the office is kind and friendly. She will see me again! --Connie C.

5  The treatment made significant changes in the appearance of my stretch marks and sagging skin. Had 5 treatments and the change is significant. --Noelle S.

5  The BBL phototherapy treatment was not painful (although a little uncomfortable) and I went right back to my normal day afterwards.  My brown spots (from old sun damage) and spider veins around my nose disappeared about 4 days later--I was REALLY amazed!  I am so motivated now to take better care of my skin since I've been given a "fresh face."  I am so glad to have my skin back--thank you Dr. Baron!!  --Jane B.
