What skin concerns can BroadBand Light (BBL) Treat?

BroadBand Light (BBL) can be performed on the face, neck, chest, back of hands, legs, arms, and shoulders. It can treat multiple concerns including: 

  • Hyperpigmentation concerns like dark spots, age spots, sun spots and melasma
  • Excessive redness, rosacea and cherry angiomas 
  • Mild to moderate inflammatory, pustular acne 
  • Large pores, rough skin texture, fine lines  
  • Hair removal

How does a BroadBand Light (BBL) work?

BroadBand Light (BBL) laser 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. This treatment consists of a broad spectrum of wavelengths—not just one single wavelength—helping the top layers of your skin absorb the energy and destroy pigmented cells and collapse vessels. 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, birthmarks, age spots and freckles.

What should I expect during a BroadBand Light (BBL) treatment?

This procedure is super quick. Thanks to its newer, faster technology, treatment may last only a few 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.

What’s recovery like?

Following 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. A sunscreen with SPF 30 or greater should be applied daily to help prevent recurrence of age spots, freckles and further hyperpigmentation.

How many BroadBand Light (BBL) treatments will I need?

Results can be seen after one treatment, but additional treatments may be needed depending on your skin goals. Schedule a complimentary consultation with one of our board-certified aesthetic clinicians for a customized treatment plan.

Am I a good candidate for BroadBand Light (BBL)?

Before your treatment, you will schedule a complimentary skincare consultation to evaluate the severity of the condition you wish to treat. Based on your evaluation, a treatment plan will be recommended.
