BBL™ Laser Treatment
What is BBL™ Laser Treatment?
BBL™ BroadBand Light therapy, also known as Intense Pulsed Light therapy (IPL), is one of the most powerful devices on the market. This treatment will leave the skin firmer and more even in skin tone with minimal downtime. BBL™ light therapy is faster and more comfortable than traditional IPL treatments.
Recent studies have proven that this treatment actually reverses signs of aging on a genetic level. The heat from the laser helps to stimulate collagen while targeting brown and red pigment in the skin. BBL™ stimulates cells to regenerate even with 1 treatment, however a series of treatments is recommended for optimal results.
Benefits of BBL™ are reducing sun damage, brown spots, redness and acne and helps to tighten skin improving tone and texture. Common areas to treat are face, neck, chest, arms, hands and even legs.
What Can I Expect From a Treatment Session?
This treatment typically takes 45 min to an hour. Some patients request a topical application of numbing but not all patients require this. Most patients to do not have significant downtime, however we recommend not planning any major events for 2-3 days after your treatment to see how your skin responds. Minor swelling and increased brown and red pigment is temporarily noted but patients are allowed to apply tinted sunscreen and makeup immediately post treatment. There is no peeling or visual flaking with this treatment so it is a perfect treatment to help target crepey skin, brown pigment and fine vessels without interrupting your daily routine leaving your skin revitalized and more youthful.
