BBL®

BBL (Broad-Band Light) is a revolutionary treatment that sends light energy deep into the skin to boost your body's natural ability to fight the appearance of aging. The results? Skin that looks younger and younger year after year.

It is not just a beautify treatment, it is a preventative regimen. Whether addressing visible signs of sun and environmental damage or beginning a preventative treatment plan, BBL treatments can help.

About This Service

How does it work?

If brown spots are the target, BBL penetrates the skin to reach the melanocytes. The particles of the cells left behind will peel or slough off within 7-14 days.

If redness is the target, blood vessels in the deeper layer of the skin absorb the light and the heat created by the light damages the vessels. The vessels are shut down and the body continues to absorb the destroyed vessel remnants.

How many treatments do you need?

A series of 2-4 treatments spaced 3-4 weeks apart, is usually recommended to clear skin discolorations and vascular lesions. Each session lasts for 20-40 minutes.

What should you expect?

There is virtually no downtime after BBL so you can return to regular activities immediately afterward.

Prior to treatment:

  • Do NOT tan the areas to be treated for 4 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Avoid using self-tanning products for 2 weeks prior to treatment.
  • Shave the areas prior to treatment.
  • Use of the medication Accutane (isotretinoin) within 6 months of treatment is forbidden.
  • Stop Retin-A, Retinol, Glycolic, and AHA products 2-3 days prior to treatment.
  • Let us know if you have a history of fever blisters if you are undergoing treatment on your face.

Post treatment care:

  • Quick, warm showers are recommended. If areas are treated other than the facial area, hot baths are not advised for 24 hours.
  • If the skin is broken or a blister appears, apply Aquaphor or Polysporin ointment and call the office. The area should be kept lubricated to prevent crusting or scabbing.
  • Cold packs, Aloe-Vera or any other cooling preparation may be used to ease temporary discomfort.
  • Prolonged sun exposure is to be avoided for 4 weeks before and after treatment. In addition, a broad-spectrum sunblock/sunscreen should be applied daily and reapplied often.

Frequently Asked Questions
How many treatments will I need?

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

What will happen during the procedure?

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 aesthetician will discuss all of your options with you including the benefits, risks and what to expect.

What should I expect after the treatment?

You may experience some redness that should resolve within a few hours. For some spots, you will see a darkening of the treated areas followed by fading and flaking off at a later stage. Results depend on your skin type, the number of treatments, and the area treated.

How long will it take to recover?

This is a non-invasive and typically gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, and resume most of your activities immediately.
