How do I know BBL is right for me?

Before your BBL treatment you will schedule a private skin consultation to evaluate the severity of the condition you wish to treat. Based on your evaluation, a treatment plan will be recommended. We will recommend the technology we feel will most effectively treat your skin condition.

How Do BBL Treatments Work?

Removing age spots or other hyperpigmentation conditions with Broadband Light treatment is a gentle and minimally-invasive way to quickly improve the health and appearance of the skin.

Through a handheld treatment device, gentle pulsed energy is applied directly to the upper layers of the skin, which may feel like the snap of a rubber band. As the skin absorbs the warm photo-thermal energy, the production of new collagen is stimulated, thus firming and tightening the skin while dramatically improving hyperpigmentation, birth marks, age spots and freckles.

The procedure may last only a few minutes or up to 40 minutes depending on the size of the treated area. Usually there is no need for a topical anesthesia, however, it may be offered if sensitive areas are being treated.

Broadband Light Laser Results

Following a Broadband Light treatment, the treated skin may be flushed for several hours. Age spots, freckles and pigmented areas will darken within days and eventually flake off after a week or so. Once the treated skin has completely exfoliated, skin will feel softer and appear brighter and smoother with smaller pores and fewer lines and dark spots.

Recovery After BBL Treatment

There is minimal aftercare required after having a Broadband Light treatment. However, certain skin care products may be recommended to help minimize redness and speed the healing process. The treated skin will be sensitive to UV light and will need to be shaded from direct sun exposure until the area has fully healed. A sunscreen (30 SPF or greater) should be applied daily to help prevent recurrence of age spots, freckles and further hyperpigmentation.

A Chemical Peel uses a precise chemical solution to remove the damaged outer layers of the skin, revealing a bright, healthy, more vibrant complexion.
