BBL (BroadBandLight) Laser
It’s Like a Magic Wand — For Your Complexion
Sometimes it feels like the world is conspiring against our skin.
Among other offenders, aging, the sun, pollution, and harmful cleansers can leave our skin dull and wrinkled (two words that ought to be outlawed). Fortunately, with BroadBand Light Therapy, you can kiss those skin issues goodbye. Consider BBL your Fairy Godmother. From sun spots to pigmented lesions, it can essentially tackle it all.
What is BBL and How Does it Work?
BBL is the next generation of Intense Pulsed Light (IPL or Photofacial) therapy. It uses broad-spectrum visible and infrared light to selectively heat layers of the skin. As a result, you’re able to achieve younger-looking skin that is firmer and more even in tone and texture.
Unlike some treatments, BBL delivers precise laser energy to very specific areas of your skin. Each treatment session is customized to meet your skin’s unique needs. The heat absorbed by the upper layers of your skin will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate.
If you’re trying to eliminate redness, blood vessels in the upper layers of the skin will absorb the laser energy, which causes them to close. Over the following several weeks, the body will continue the absorption process to destroy vessel remnants.
If you’re trying to reduce brown spots, on the other hand, BBL penetrates the skin to reach the pigment. The leftover particles will peel or slough off within the following week to two weeks.
What Can BBL Broadband Light Therapy Treat?
BBL Broadband Light Therapy treats a variety of skin conditions, including:
- Pigmented areas, such as freckles and age spots
- Rosacea, cherry angiomas. telangiectasias
- Uneven skin texture
- Small blood vessels
What Can I Expect During a BBL Treatment?
BBL treatment is very gentle and safe. While some people prefer a topical anesthetic, it isn’t necessary. You may experience some discomfort during the treatment session, which is often described as a warm light popping sensation.
During the procedure, your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Depending on the size of the area being treated and the goal of the treatment, the entire procedure may be as little as a few minutes. Your clinician will discuss your options with you.
Will There Be Downtime?
There is virtually no downtime and you may resume normal activities immediately after treatment. That said, there may be some redness for several hours. Depending on the treated area, you may also experience some darkening of the skin, followed by fading and flaking off shortly thereafter.
