What is a BBL™ Photofacial?

A BBL™ (Broad Band Light) Photofacial is a laser resurfacing technique using Sciton® technology to rejuvenate the skin, reduce the pigment from sun damage, and diminish redness from rosacea. One of the advantages of a BBL™ Photofacial is that there is little or no downtime with this non-invasive procedure. The result of this technique is healthy, younger looking skin. BroadBand Light (BBL)TM is the world’s most powerful IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) device on the market.It sets new standards in treating skin conditions associated with aging, active life styles, and sun damage.

Results Forever. Imagine taking a photo a decade from now and looking better than you do today. It may sound impossible, but that’s what Forever Young BBL can do. It was proven in a 10-year clinical study—one of the longest on re- cord to show the results of a skincare regimen. Most patients received multiple BBL treatments per year for an average of ten years. At the end of the study, doctors judged the patients to appear 11 years younger than their actual age.

BBL is used to treat the following issues associated with aging, active lifestyles and sun damage:

  • Brown spots
  • Red spots and area
  • Acne
  • Aging skin
  • Hyper-pigmentation
  • Rosacea
  • Couperus and vascular conditions

How does BBL Work?

During a BBL treatment, the technician uses the device’s hand piece to expose the problem area with light energy of a specific wavelength, breaking down brown or red spots, reducing sun damage.The light energy is absorbed by the target area’s color, heating the cells and destroying them. As a consequence, enlarged blood vessels and redness caused by rosacea become less visible, while brown spots or hyper-pigmented areas darken and shed from the skin.

Frequently asked questions?

Any area of your body can be treated. The most common areas are those most exposed to the damaging effects of sunlight. Most people ask for treatments on the face, neck, back of the hands, chest and shoulders.

The number of treatments needed varies from patient to patient, and your clinician will personalize a plan based on the level of improvement you desire. You will see improvement after only one session, but the more you do, the more you’ll see. Treatments have a cumulative effect on the skin, 3 to 5 are generally required for most conditions.

Once the skin is corrected, we recommend that you undergo at least 2 treatments per year to maintain your results and begin turning back the hands of time!

Your eyes will be protected with safety shields or glasses. Typically, there is no need for a topical anesthetic, however your clinician may choose to use one on more sensitive areas. You may feel a quick, warm sensation as the light is absorbed by the targeted areas. Your procedure may take a few minutes to half an hour, depending on the size of the area to be treated.

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

You may experience some redness that should resolve within 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, 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. It is important to follow your clinician’s post treatment plan. Your clinician will provide you with more information on what to expect as well as give you an aftercare plan to follow that will involve avoiding direct sun exposure and using sunscreen.

Treatments using the BBL are quite affordable – some will even say that they are priceless because of the results they have experienced. Clients are able to choose from single treatment or package pricing options. During your consultation with one of our highly-trained medical aestheticians, you will have an in-depth discussion that will address your concerns, and together we will develop a treatment plan that will help you reach your skin care goals.
