Overtime, our skin changes quite a bit; on our face, hands, chest, and elsewhere. Spots, discoloration, redness, and wrinkles are just some of the issues you may want to improve. Minimally invasive, yet highly effective rejuvenation is possible with BroadBand Light, also called BBL.
BBL works by delivering pulses of light to the top layers of the skin. Unlike a laser, which delivers a single focused wavelength, the BBL device delivers a broad spectrum of light for a gentle, heat-based rejuvenation treatment.
BBL primarily treats these common concerns:
- Sun damage (brown spots)
- Facial Vessels
- Hair Reduction
- Age Spots
The light energy delivered by BBL will gently heat the upper layers of your skin. The heat absorbed by the targeted areas will stimulate your skin cells to regenerate. This corrective process will restore your skin to its natural beauty, making it clearer, smoother, vibrant and younger looking. BBL allows your clinician to treat age spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions.
BBL stimulates cells to regenerate, and typically with the first treatment you will start to see smoother, more even and vibrant skin. The photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces age and sun spots. Your skin will feel smoother, pores will be less noticeable, and uneven pigmentation will fade.
Depending on the condition treated and your skin type, we will personalize a treatment plan based on your needs and desired outcome. The number of treatments varies from patient to patient - usually 3 to 4 treatments spaced 4 weeks apart are required for full correction, although additional treatments especially for rosacea and vascular sun damage, may be required.
