Phototherapy BBL™

What is BBL BroadBand Light?

BBL light energy allows your laser specialist to personalize treatments for your skin and precisely treat everything from age and sunspots to small facial veins and redness. This is a noninvasive procedure so you can return to your normal routine after your treatment.

How does BBL work?

BBL uses pulses of light to gently heat the top layer of skin and targets redness and brown spots in the skin.

What conditions can be treated with BBL™?

  • Pigment (freckles, age spots, hormonal pigmentation)
  • Small blood vessels and rosacea
  • Acne
  • Loose skin
  • Uneven skin texture

What areas can be treated?

The most popular areas are the face, neck, chest, and back of the hands.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed varies, but we recommend starting with a package of 3 treatments for best results. Your laser specialist will personalize a treatment plan based on your skin condition and the results you want to achieve. Treatments are typically 2-4 weeks apart.

How long is a treatment?

Your procedure may take a few minutes to 45 minutes depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure.

Is BBL™ painful?

This is a gentle, noninvasive laser treatment. Generally, there is no need for topical anesthetic.

What can I expect after my treatment?

You may experience some redness that will disappear in a few hours. Pigmented areas will darken and gradually fade over the next 7-10 days. Your treated skin will feel smoother, fine lines and pores begin to be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results will depend on your skin condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated.

How long will it take to recover?

You can expect virtually no downtime. In most cases, you can return to work, apply makeup, and resume most of your activities immediately.
