What is BBL broadband light?
BBL broadband light’s innovative technology sets new standards for the treatment of skin conditions associated with aging and sun damage. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin’s condition and desired results.
Why should I consider BBL?
Groupings of pigments and vascular anomalies may fade over a length of time with prescription creams, but these conditions represent damaged skin and never completely disappear. While the damage can’t be undone, using BBL we can target and treat these common skin conditions. Broadband Light is one of the recognized and powerful treatments so expect to see dramatic improvements in tone and texture. The BBL allows an equal amount of distributed fluence which is safe for skin.
How does BBL work?
The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat up the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to generate new collagen, thus helping restore your skin to it’s natural beauty, blending it’s natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger looking. In addition the photothermal energy will target and eliminate many of the fine vessels that cause redness and the unwanted melanin response for pigmented lesions.
What will BBL treatment do?
BBL technology utilizes the power of pulsed light to deliver excellent results in photorejuvenation therapy. Your skin will be smoother, more vibrant and you will have a more youthful appearance as a result.
What areas can be treated?
Any area of the body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of the sun. The most popular treatments are for the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
How many treatments will I need?
From 2-5 treatments, at a 2 week interval, produce the desired results. You may require additional treatments depending on the severity of your condition.
How long will it take to recover?
This is a non-invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no down-time. You can go right back to work or to any planned activites.
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some pigmented lesions you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine wrinkles and pores will be less noticeable, as will sun spots or uneven pigmentation. You can apply make up afterwards if you desire. Rarely some redness or swelling may occur which resolves in two to five days.
The benefits of the treatment after a full series is completed are long lasting.
