Face a Brighter Future with BBL™
If what you see in the mirror doesn’t reflect the spirited you that’s inside, it’s time for your face to get back in line with your attitude!
BBL™, or broadband light, is a quick, painless laser therapy that yields dramatic results gradually over time, eliminating discoloration, sun damage and fine lines while creating firmer skin and a more radiant complexion.
What is BBL™?
BBL™ treatment targets skin imperfections with focused laser pulses. These bursts of energy destroy pigment in cells to help fade discolorations and stimulate collagen growth for a more plump, youthful firmness that decreases the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines.
By stimulating new cell growth and processes under the skin, BBL™ encourages the skin to repair itself for a more even tone and a balanced complexion. Since BBL™ is non-invasive and non-ablative (meaning it isn’t going to burn and peel), treatment is relatively painless with no recovery time or downtime. Treatments can take just a few minutes in a provider’s office depending on the specific issues, the area being treated and the patient’s goals.
BBL™ has been proven safe for rejuvenating skin in areas all over the body and is an FDA-cleared treatment for repairing sun-damaged skin.
What issues can be resolved with BBL™ treatment?
BBL™ is effective in treating:
- Rosacea and redness
- Broken capillaries
- Sun damage
- Dull complexion
- Uneven pigmentation
- Pigmented freckles and age spots
- Liver spots
- Uneven skin tone
BBL™ is also effective in treating sun-damaged skin on the neck, chest, hands and arms.
How does BBL™ work?
BBL™ uses a range of light wavelengths to focus energy on damaged skin cells. When those cells are eliminated, it stimulates the production of new, young cells and firming collagen. The new, accelerated cell growth pushes pigmented, damaged layers, such as sunspots, to the surface of the skin where they can peel or flake away, leaving even skin tone.
BBL™ can also eliminate broken capillaries that frequently appear around the nostrils, cheeks and chin; improve diffused redness and even fade birthmarks. The stimulation of collagen production in the deeper layers of skin smooths and firms the skin at the surface for a more youthful, rejuvenated complexion.
What should I expect during BBL™ treatment?
BBL™ is quick and safe. A session is generally 30 minutes or less depending on the issues and treatment areas.
When you arrive for your treatment, we first clean your skin then use the BBL™ handpiece to deliver customized laser energy to the treatment areas. The handpiece is self-cooling and keeps skin at a comfortable temperature. Most patients report zero pain and only mild discomfort. However, everyone is different, so If you find treatment uncomfortable, we can apply a topical numbing cream.
What should I expect after BBL™ treatment?
One of the advantages of BBL™ is that there is little or no downtime with this non-invasive procedure. Immediately following BBL™ treatment, you may see mild redness in the treatment areas and skin may feel warm, like a slight sunburn. These effects usually disappear after a few hours but may last up to a few days depending on the areas and issues treated.
You may see positive changes after just one visit, or you may decide to multiply the effect with several sessions over the course of a few weeks. A course of two to four BBL™ treatments per year is suggested to maintain results.
What are the long-term benefits of BBL™?
New clinical research indicates that having BBL™ twice a year can cause skin cells to behave like younger cells, producing more collagen and elastin for firmer, glowing skin. Studies suggest that regular long-term BBL™ treatment boosts the activity of longevity-related genes in aged skin cells, reversing the cells' aging processes and reverting skin to a genetically youthful state. BBL™ brings your outer you in line with your energy!
