Photorejuvenation – BBL (Broad Band Light)
BBL is an innovative light-based technology for treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life-styles and sun damage. BBL light energy precisely treats age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin defects. BBL phototherapy is noninvasive so you can receive comfortable and effective treatments to fit your schedule, even on a lunch break.
How does BBL work?
BBL deposits pulses of light energy that gently heats the upper layers of skin. Within the skin, the light energy is absorbed by targets, such as fine, broken vessels that cause redness and brown spots or pigmented lesions that are caused by an overproduction of melanin.
What conditions can be treated with BBL?
- Pigmented Lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots, melasma)
- Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels, rosacea and other micro-capillary flushing conditions)
- Skin laxity
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Unwanted Hair
What should I expect?
You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. Pigmented lesions will darken and gradually flake off and fade over the next 7-10 days.
