Reveal Your Skin’s Radiance

Years of unprotected sun exposure and the process of aging can do a number on your skin, making it look dull and weathered. Thankfully, there’s a skin treatment that can reduce the appearance of damage and reveal rejuvenated skin.

BBL BroadBand Light therapy, or Photofacial, is the world’s most power­ful Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy available. BBL uses cutting edge tech­nology to produce younger looking skin that’s firmer, and more even in tone and texture. With little recovery time and no surgery, BBL treatments offer a safe option for sun damage, anti-aging, and skin rejuvenation.

What is BBL BroadBand Light?

BBL is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active lifestyles and sun damage. BBL energy precisely treats age and sunspots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.

How does BBL work?

The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regen­erate new collagen. This process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, blending its natural colors and making it smoother, vibrant and younger-look­ing. In addition, the photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness, and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

What conditions can be treated with BBL?
  • Pigmented Lesions
  • Rosacea
  • Vascular Lesions
  • Acne Skin
  • Uneven Skin Texture
  • Sun damage
What areas can be treated?

Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight – the face, neck, back of the hands and chest.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed will vary from patient to patient. Your laser and skin specialist will personalize a treatment plan based on the level of improvement you desire. We may also combine your treatment with other popular aesthetic procedures to further personalize your treatment.

What will happen during the procedure?

BBL treatments are gentle, non-invasive and safe. Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. You may briefly feel a warm or “rubber band snap” sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure can take a few minutes to an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated and the type of procedure performed.

What should I expect after the treatment?

BBL treatments require little downtime. 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 lines and pores will be less noticeable, and sunspots or uneven pigmentation will fade. Results depend on your skin’s condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated. Your laser and skin specialist will provide you with complete information about post treatment care and results.
