What is BBL?
BBL (BroadBand Light) is an innovative technology that sets new standards for skin conditions associated with aging, active life styles, and sun damage. BBL energy allows your physician to precisely treat age and sun spots, small facial veins, and many other skin conditions. Your treatment will be tailored to match your skin type and your desired results.
How does BBL work?
The light energy delivered by the BBL will gently heat the upper layers of the 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 photothermal energy will eliminate fine vessels that cause redness and reduce unwanted melanin that produces pigmented lesions.

Who is a good candidate?
Any one with the following skin conditions can be treated:
- Pigmented lesions (freckles or age spots)
- Vascular Lesions (small blood vessels)
- Loss of Skin Firmness
- Uneven skin texture
BBL is a non invasive and gentle procedure with virtually no downtime. In most cases, you are able to return to work, apply makeup, 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 darkening of the treated areas 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.
