BBL stands for broadband light. This innovative technology has improved the treatment for skin conditions regarding sun damage, lifestyles and the aging process. BBL treatments enable the precision necessary to treat skin blemishes, small facial veins, sun spots, age spots, and fine wrinkles. Each treatment is customized for the desired results and skin condition of the individual. BBL treatments use pulsed light with the appropriate wavelength to treat a wide variety of skin conditions resulting from sun exposure and aging. After the treatment, your skin will appear younger, more vibrant and smoother.
BBL treatments deliver light energy to heat your skin’s upper layers. The targeted areas absorb the heat. This stimulates the cells in your skin to produce new collagen and restore your skin. Your skin becomes younger-looking, more vibrant, and smoother. The photothermal energy also eliminates a lot of the fine vessels responsible for pigmented lesions, unwanted melanin and redness. You can have any area of your body treated. The areas most commonly treated are those exposed to the damage caused by the sun including the face, chest, neck, shoulders and the back of the hands.
Multiple treatment sessions may be required to achieve your optimum results. Depending on how severe your skin condition is, there may be additional benefits with more treatments. Since BBL treatments are gentle and non-invasive, there is no downtime. You should be able to go back to work, resume the majority of your regular activities and apply your cosmetics once the treatment is complete. A new treatment plan will be created for your specific needs during your consultation. This takes the severity and number of skin conditions that will require treatment as well as your skin type into consideration.
The treatment is safe, non-invasive and gentle. Prior to your treatment, you will be provided protective eyewear. During your BBL treatment, the smooth surface of the BBL handpiece will be gently applied to your skin. Precise pulses of light will be delivered to the surface of your skin throughout the targeted area.
