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 photo-thermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.
Our machine is equipped with advanced cooling features, allowing the use of high-powered energy with minimal discomfort. Numbing cream can be administered on individuals who find the treatment uncomfortable, but it’s typically unnecessary. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results. BBL™ is a safe, effective approach to younger looking skin.
What areas can be treated?
Any area of your body can be treated. Due to being most often exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight, the most popular treatments are on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.
What conditions can be treated with BBL?
- Pigmented Lesions (e.g., freckles, age spots)
- Vascular Lesions (e.g., small blood vessels)
- Skin Firmness
- Uneven Skin Texture
- Unwanted Hair
What should I expect after the treatment?
You may experience some redness that should resolve withing a few hours. For some pigmented lesions, you will see a darkening of the treated area 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 condition, the number of treatments, and the area treated.
How long will it take to recover?
This is a noninvasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup and resume most of your normal activities immediately.
