At Knott Street Dermatology we provide a variety of products and treatments that can prevent or address skin conditions. These include BBL laser treatments for problems like solar lentigo, as well as sunscreen to prevent skin damage from occurring in the first place.
BBL Laser Treatment for Solar Lentigo
Check out the result of this treatment of a larger solar lentigo. This considerable improvement is from just one session of BBL.
With Sciton BBL™ at Knott Street Dermatology in Portland, patients are provided with a series of lasers and light sources to choose from that help address both their skin issues as well as hair removal. These include:
Broadband Light (BBL) delivers light energy that gently heats the upper layers of the skin. The targeted skin areas absorb heat, which stimulates the regeneration of new skin cells.
Forever Young BBL™
Forever Young BBL is an innovative technology that uniquely delivers light therapy that targets the signs of aging and sun damage and effectively provides a more refreshed, rejuvenated, and youthful appearance.
Forever Clear BBL™
Forever Clear BBL is a cutting-edge acne treatment that uses the power of light to comfortably and effectively clear acne without creams or medicine.
Forever Bare BBL™
Forever Bare BBL is a new technology in hair removal. Traditional hair removal devices apply all of their energy to a given area at the same time.
Laser treatments address:
* Age and sunspots
* Small facial veins

Sunscreen is Important Throughout the Year, Including Fall and Winter
The science is in, sunscreen is still important during the cold months. When you are outdoors, your skin may be exposed to more ultraviolet rays especially when the UV is being reflected from snow and ice.
For ultimate UV protection, we recommend EltaMD’s UV Daily and the UV Clear. They are both lightweight, fragrance free, paraben-free. Both include Hyaluronic Acid in their composition which increases skin’s smoothness, softness and helps decrease wrinkles. With these, you get both UV protection and skin moisturization at the same time.
With diligent sunscreen use you can prevent sunburn, as well as decrease the risk of skin cancer and early skin aging caused by exposure to UV light, especially when sunscreen is used with other sun protection measures.
All Elta MD sunscreen products were tested for phototoxicity and showed no adverse effects or unexpected reactions in test subjects.
How to use this product:
* Apply liberally to skin 15 minutes before sun exposure
* Reapply every 2 hours
* Use with other sun protection measures such as limiting time in the sun and wearing appropriate clothing
